How to use a mouse or trackpad on your iPad with iPadOS

This article was written on an iPadOS 13 beta system. Users who have enabled Apple’s free public beta of iPadOS are the only ones who can use this feature right now. In the fall of 2019, the official version will be available. Any aspects of this feature may change between now and the official release because the app is still in beta. This article will be updated as needed.

Requirements for Using an iPad with a Cursor

You will need the following items to use a mouse with your iPad:

  • An iPad is a tablet computer.
  • The iPad must have iPadOS 13 or higher enabled.
  • A wireless or wired mouse or trackpad is needed.
  • A USB or Lightning to USB-C adapter cable is necessary to use a wired mouse.

How to Attach an iPad to a Bluetooth Mouse

It’s easy to use a Bluetooth wireless mouse with an iPad. Simply obey the steps below:

  • To open the Settings app on the iPad, tap it.
  • Go to Accessibility and choose it.
  • Touch is located in the Physical and Motor section.
  • Select AssistiveTouch from the drop-down menu.
  • Switch on/green the AssistiveTouch slider.
  • Tap Devices in the Pointer Devices portion.
  • Go to Bluetooth Devices and choose it.
  • Pair your Bluetooth mouse with your computer.

When the name of your mouse appears on the screen, tap it and attach it to your iPad by following the on-screen pairing instructions. A circular cursor appears onscreen when your mouse is linked to your iPad. Shift the cursor with the mouse and click onscreen objects as normal.

Apple’s Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad are currently not enabled for wireless use with the iPad, which is unusual. It’s possible that this will change in the future. It’s possible to use the original Magic Mouse. However, the Magic Trackpad can be used with a cable. Later in the post, I’ll go over this in more detail.

Using a Wired Mouse on an iPad

With the iPad, you can also use a wired USB mouse. Here’s what you can do:

  • Steps 1–5 from the previous section should be followed.
  • Attach your mouse to the iPad’s USB-C port on the bottom.
  • You’ll need an extension cable unless your mouse has a USB-C connector. If you have a normal USB mouse, for example, you’ll need a USB-A to USB-C converter. A Lightning to USB-C adapter is required for an Apple mouse with a Lightning port.
  • On a desktop or laptop computer, use the mouse to monitor the circular cursor that appears onscreen.
  • If you want to use an Apple Magic Trackpad for your iPad, this is how you do it. Follow these steps with a Lightning to USB-C cable or adapter.

How to Change the Functions of Each Mouse Button on an iPad

On the iPad, you can control what each button on your mouse does when you press it, much as you can on a screen. Follow these steps to make your mouse buttons do just what you want:

  • After pairing your mouse with your iPad
  • Go to Accessibility
  • Touch
  • AssistiveTouch
  • Pointer Devices and tap the mouse’s name on the Devices screen.
