However, it was a half-baked factor the place you needed to dig across the “accessibility” settings to make use of a restricted practical cursor. The iPadOS 13.4, that was launched to the general public this week, brings the full-fledged cursor to the iPads. However, this cursor is a bit completely different than the normal cursor that we’ve used for the reason that inception of the pointing units. Instead of the standard tilted arrow pointer, the cursor within the iPads is spherical, similar to a fingertip. Apple’s SVP, Craig Federighi defined all about it in a latest video.
Now, coming to the nifty function I used to be speaking about. Discovered by Marques “MKBHD” Brownlee, the YouTuber shared a brief video on Twitter. In the video, it was seen that the spherical and translucent pointer of the cursor adjustments its color relying on the background of the display screen. In the video, when the cursor moved to a place with a darkish background, it modified to a lighter shade and when it moved to a light-weight background-position, it once more modified to a darker shade.
