I hear people claim they are efficient at editing text on iOS. They may even believe it, but I don’t. Manipulating text using poke, drag, swear, poke again, miss, swear again, repeat on iOS has always been horribly frustrating and inefficient. Typing on the smart keyboard is fine, and as long as I don’t make any mistakes or have to move stuff around, it’s almost pleasant. Anything beyond that sucks.

I’ve been playing with the beta of iPadOS 13.4 on my (last year’s) 12.9” iPad Pro. I’m now finally and officially able to use a mouse or trackpad with my iPad and it’s glorious.

I'm very much looking forward to the new Magic Keyboard for my iPad.

This single change stands a fair chance of causing me to use my iPad much more for "real" work.
