    Magic keyboard alternative for iPad Pro 11”

    I was just wondering if anybody was aware of a keyboard case with a trackpad for the iPad Pro 11 inch? I’ve been looking around but I haven’t been able to find anything for the 11 inch iPad Pro specifically. Maybe I missed something? It would be nice save a little money, which is why I’m looking...

    Magic Keyboard scrolling stops working

    Will stat off by saying I love the Magic Keyboard for my 2018 11” iPad Pro and the trackpad has changed how I use the iPad in ways I never imagined, it really makes it a real contender for a laptop substitute. I have a weird issue where the two finger scrolling will randomly stop working after...

    MBA 2017 trackpad not smooth anymore since cleaning with 35% alcohol

    Hello everyone, This is my first post on macrumors, as of this year I am a mac user for the first time. When I first bought my Macbook Air 2017 the trackpad was silky smooth. My finger glided easily over the trackpad. Since cleaning it with a tissue wet with 35% brandy the trackpad is no longer...

    Built-in keyboard and trackpad suddenly stopped working, cursor stuck in top left corner.

    I have a late 2017 13" MBP. Today the trackpad and the keyboard stopped working at the same time. The only thing that works is the power button (and the touchbar). Nothing happened prior to the incident so I don't know why the hell they stopped working all of a sudden. But I've noticed one...

    Trackpad slow on login screen

    I'm on 10.13.6. I replaced the battery on my MBA, and I can't recall if I had this issue before, but the pointer is moving very slowly via trackpad on the login screen. When I log out after having been logged in, it's normal as set for the user, but restarting makes it slow again. Any ideas...

    2018 MBA vs MBP trackpad size

    If you compared them side by side, you will immediately notice MBA trackpad is smaller than the MBP counterpart. Theory? Logically it seems they wanted to distinguish pro line from the air by deliberately making the air trackpad smaller thus compelling buyers to opt for the pro models and pay...

    Trackpad Gesture Help!

    Yo! On my old MacBook Air I could hover the mouse over a file, tab and hold with 3 fingers on that file, and then move all 3 fingers across the trackpad to drag the file. On my new MacBook Pro, I cannot find out how to set this up. I can only drag files/windows by clicking + holding, which I...

    2015 Macbook Air keyboard and trackpad issues

    Hi All! I just purchased a used 2015 Macbook Air i7/8gb/512 and am amazed at how much quicker it feels than my 2011 i5/4gb. Well worth the upgrade! While the performance feels quite good, there are two things about the 2015 that I definitely don't like as much as my 2011 - the keyboard doesn't...

    Magic Trackpad… Batteries draining super fast.

    I have noticed the past few months the batteries are draining incredibly fast. I used to eke out two months or so… well that was when I bought the trackpad new a couple years ago. Right now I am down to 1 1/2 weeks, which is frankly ridiculous! For the record: Mac mini, 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5...

    Configuring Trackpad limited

    Hey Mac-Community, I've had a Macbook Pro for ages and as for most users its configured as to my needs. At work, I got a new Macpro with MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 now and to my shock the configuration of the trackpad seems limited. With my Mac for example I can mark multiple items only by swiping...
