iOS  13 has been rumoured to be making iPads more productive, and now we have another concrete example of what that would entail.

Apple will reportedly be adding USB mouse support, albeit labelled as an accessibility device. Users will be able to connect a USB-C mouse to the Pro and control UI elements with accessibility mode.

MacStories’ Viticci, who broke the story notes that this is something that is in the works, but doesn’t have any more concrete details beyond that. it could be coming with iOS 13 and Apple’s next hardware release, or it could be pushed back to iOS 14 like iOS 12’s iPad changes were.

Currently, while Apple offers the best pro-sized tablet for tablet things, its offering can’t yet match Windows or Chrome OS devices when it comes to desktop matters. With the addition of mouse support and windows support, the equation changes for Pro users who are wavering between a Surface Pro, Pixel Slate and iPad Pro.
