Apple is making a huge change to its new iPadOS, introducing mouse support for both USB and Bluetooth devices.
Adding mouse support to iPadOS is significant, even though it’s an accessibility feature. it has implemented this support as an Assistive Touch feature, the cursor designed to simulate a finger touch, so you can use a mouse to do this instead. Many iPad owners have been asking for some type of cursor support for years, and this is only the start of Apple supporting this more broadly across its new iPadOS.
Once you’ll have iPadOS installed you will be able to enable the mouse support
After that is done you can start the pairing process (one time setup) :
Turn On the mouse ( switch power button up ) and immediately Press and hold "left click" & "right click" buttons together for 3 seconds to enter pair mode (blue light will start blinking)
Open Settings, then chooseAccessibility
Next tap Touchthen AssistiveTouch and toggle it "on"
