Hidden away in iPadOS’ accessibility features is support for a USB mouse.
A developer named Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith’s) tweeted that the ‘Assistive Touch’ allows users to navigate their iPads with a mouse.

This isn’t a complete implementation of mouse support yet because it looks like a circular touch target, but nonetheless, you can now use a mouse with the iPad.
Most of today’s iPadOS announcements made it seem like Apple is working to make the iPad a more capable device when compared to a standard Mac or PC.
