iPadOS 13.4 brings trackpad support to the iPad

iOS 13.4 compatible with all iPhones released since iPhone 6s and iPhone SE

Apple has finally released iOS 13.4 and iPadOS 13.4 for the iPhone and iPad, bringing some hotly anticipated features. This particular version of iOS and iPadOS has been in beta testing through developer and public beta programs for well over a month and a half.

Perhaps the most notable feature of the new OS update is the trackpad support for the iPad and iPad Pro. With your iPad or iPad Pro updated to iPadOS 13.4, you will be able to pair external mice or trackpads to your iPad and use the new cursor to not only navigate the iPad but also work your way through apps. Instead of implementing the cursor in the traditional way, Apple has designed the new navigational feature in a very intuitive manner. The cursor appears and disappears as and when needed and if you use a trackpad, you can also use gestures to control various aspects of the iPad and the iPadPro.

While trackpad support for the iPad is a huge deal for a host of reasons, other features making iOS 13.4 and iPadOS 13.4 a notable update is the iCloud Drive folder sharing. The feature was supposed to roll out with iOS 13 but was delayed. Thankfully, its finally here and allows users to share files and folders stored in iCloud Drive with others, in a fashion very similar to how other cloud storage works.

Perhaps the biggest update to iOS 13.4 is the universal app purchase between iOS and macOS. What that means is that if a developer has an app for macOS and iOS, purchasing one version will unlock all versions of the app. Essentially, if you buy an app on macOS, its iOS version will also be unlocked for the user and vice versa.
