Apple dropped a slew of new products today. It dropped an update to the Macbook Air with new Magic Keyboard and a lower price tag. It also updated the Mac Mini with double the base storage. They even released new iPhone and Apple Watch cases with a range of new colors for spring. The biggest announcement of the day, however, has to be the new iPad Pro and Magic Keyboard with new camera sensors and an actual trackpad.
To celebrate the release of the new iPad Pro and Magic Keyboard, Apple's Senior Vice President of Software Engineering, Craig Federighi, is taking users through a demo of the product.
In a video shared with The Verge, Federighi shows off how a trackpad will now be incorporated into how people use iPadOS.
Federighi goes on to show how the cursor transforms over objects to make it clear what you are selecting, and how you can use it to make more precise edits for whatever you may be working on.
He also demos how to use the trackpad to multitask using multi-finger gestures and more. iMore's own Rene Ritchie tweeted out the video as well.

LiDAR for Life
An iPad camera that is now as good as an iPhone's.
The 2020 iPad Pro has a faster processor, an advanced camera system, a LiDAR scanner for AR, and support for a true cursor experience with the Magic Keyboard with Trackpad.
