Apple is planning to release a new iPad keyboard with a built-in trackpad later this year, according to The Information. The new accessory is likely going to release alongside the next version of the iPad Pro, said The Informations source.
Adding a trackpad to an iPad keyboard would be yet another move from Apple to bring functionality typically associated with a laptop to the companys popular tablet line. iPadOS already has mouse support, but its an extension of the iPads AssistiveTouch technology and you have to dig into the accessibility menu to turn it on. And the on-screen mouse pointer isnt the usual little black arrow you might be used to on your computer its a big, semi-opaque circle that has a dot in the middle.
