lkrupp said:mini LED, micro LED, are they the same thing? I’d never heard of mini LED until lately.
micro LED is an emissive screen technology that is capable of producing lighted pixels without a backlight, so it potentially has all the advantages of OLED, but brighter and with no risk of burn in.
A few thoughts:
1. USB-C isn’t what enables mouse support. First, most mice (“mouses”) are USB-A or Bluetooth. And Apple no longer sells a wired mouse of any kind, so if they really wanted to support an iPad mouse, they’d go Bluetooth.
2. The only time I want a mouse on my iPad is when I run software like Citrix Receiver to connect to corporate computers (usually Windows). Citrix already sells a mouse for iOS users of their app: https://youtu.be/9R6WcZkz-Ik (and it works well)
3. I think using a pointer + mouse for native iOS apps misses the point of the tablet form factor. I get that some people think a tablet should be a desktop Windows PC, but I do not, and I do not think Apple thinks this either.
