iOS and iPadOS 13.4 are now available with mouse and keyboard support for iPads, folder sharing on iCloud Drive and more
Apple has released iOS 13.4 and iPadOS 13.4, which add full mouse and trackpad support to iPads, folder sharing on iCloud Drive, new nine new Memoji stickers and more.
Undoubtedly the biggest feature in today’s releases is the mouse and keyboard support for iPads, which Apple unveiled last week when it announced its 2020 iPad Pros and the new Magic Keyboard accessory. iPadOS 13.0 introduced mouse support, but it has changed significantly in iPadOS 13.4, and you can get a sense of all the changes in this post from my colleague Dieter Bohn. Any iPad with iPadOS 13.4 supports the feature and it works with Apple’s Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2, as well as third-party mice or trackpads.
Another welcome feature is the introduction of folder sharing in iCloud Drive, which allows you to share folders with others using a link, such as Box or Dropbox, so that others can access what’s in that folder and see changes in real time. The feature is said to come with iOS 13, but it is was delayed until last fall and then postponed again until sometime this spring.
The update also includes nine new Memoji stickers, an updated toolbar in the Mail app when viewing an email, and other features and bug fixes.
