With the COVID-19 pandemic going on around the world and in the United States. Apple did not hold a March keynote for it’s unveiling of the new iPad Pro and MacBook Air.
Apple’s software engineering chief Craig Federighi created a demo showing off what the new iPad Pro could do and show off the capabilities of the new Magic Keyboard and trackpad support on the new iPad Pro.
“Our goal with iPad has always been to create a device so capable and so versatile it can become whatever you want it to be. And that versatility is built on the power of touch.
But of course, we give you so many other ways to interact with the iPad, and sometimes you want to type. For typing, nothing beats the Magic Keyboard. It’s when typing that you most appreciate the precision and ergo of a trackpad.
In bringing mouse and trackpad support to iPadOS, we deeply considered the way to bring a cursor to a touch-first environment.”
