    I’m wondering for those that are using a trackpad with iPadOS - does it support pinching to zoom in/out? Only have a mouse to test out with it.

    I don’t believe the Apple Trackpad is currently supported on ipadOS beta.

    I believe it does over USB - if not there are 3rd party trackpads that I’ve heard are working.

    Magic Trackpad works great for me over Lightning to USB-C :)

    Does the Magic Trackpad work in a basic mode (pointer only) or does it actually support two finger right click, scrolling, or other features?

    If it does not, hopefully other betas will add these features before release. (I saw a video under accessibility you can designate what each button does, the video showed his mouse had 4 or 5 of them I think.)

    Right click doesn’t exist yet in iOS - I would love a long tap be assignable to mouse/trackpads which is basically the right click of iOS

    Right click could replace 3D Touch and Haptic Touch?

    Let me rephrase that. The video I saw had a right button and a left button both working (I think they were labeled 1-5). Does holding two finges while clicking activate a button two option or anything?

    At 2:06 in this video, it shows how he can select multiple mouse button and out an action on each one. (For example bring up the dock/home page). When the magic trackpad is connected, does it show multiple button, or just one?

    So wait—what about the original Magic Trackpad? How does it connect?

    OK. I was getting the impression the trackpad only works with a cable.
