Apple brings PC-like trackpad to iPads

By

New York: As the company strives to make tablets more like laptops, Apple’s new iPad offers PC-like trackpad features for the first time.

Apple says the trackpad offers more precision when selecting text and switching between applications than with a finger.

Older iPads can also get trackpad functionality with free software updates, but some iPads require a third-party keyboard. For the iPad Pro, Apple will release a “magic keyboard” in May with a trackpad starting at $ 299. The tablet itself starts at $ 799, while the Apple Pencil stylus costs $ 129, bringing the total cost closer to a Mac laptop .

Apple also announced a new MacBook Air computer that starts at around $ 1,000 and drops $ 100.

The new iPad Pro and MacBook Air will go on sale in stores next week, although Apple’s own stores are still closed in most parts of the world due to a coronavirus outbreak.

Apple did not mention the new iPhone in Wednesday’s announcement. It is speculated that Apple will update its older models as a cheap alternative to the new iPhone 11s.
