American technological giant Apple Inc. is all set to lend the user-friendly mouse support to its iPad, which will make the efficient device a perfect hub for hard-core gamers, according to Cliff Maldonado, Founder, and Principal Analyst of BayStreet Research firm.
Apple Arcade earned a lot of attention while satiating the needs of the families, children, or casual game enthusiasts with its wide range of exciting games. Apple, on the other hand, is planning to present its iPad as one of the best companions for hard-core gamers in the near future. Some time back, Apple introduced mouse support for iPadOS focused only on accessibility activities. However, now Cliff Maldonado has opined that the globally reputed firm is planning to give full mouse support to its iPad product making it an unprecedented solution for gamers worldwide.
“It’s a game-changer … To me, it’s Apple executing a vision of ‘we want the iPad to be as good and as powerful as the MacBook.”
While describing the various uses of mouse support for iPad, Maldonado stated that,
“There are three types of gaming: PC gaming, console gaming, and mobile gaming.”
He further said,
“Apple could have a PC gaming play with the iPad with the mouse and the chips prowess they have, the way they’re moving these things forward. It could be Apple’s first foray into hard-core gaming.”
Maldonado clarified that though Apple Arcade is the first choice for casual game lovers, it fails to address the requirements of hard-core PC or console gamers.
“To me, Apple Arcade is basically an extension of the Apple Music play, which is ‘Let’s create a service.”
As per Maldonado, if Apple will work in the field of hard-core gaming and mouse support for better customer satisfaction, it will open doors of greater opportunities and benefits for itself. He added that keyboard and mouse support would be a boon for gamers who indulge maximum time in meeting their targets in these digital games. “It could be a perfect disruption to PC gaming,” quoted Maldonado.
Also, competing for a firm, Microsoft has teamed up with Razer to come up with keyboard and mouse-supported Xbox One. This will give a fair chance to the developers to contemplate if the users will be allowed to use the new supports as replacement for the traditional controller. The full-fledged mouse support will help the users to replace their laptops with iPads making the tablets more compatible with the Microsoft Office suite and G Suite tools.
iPads range starts from $329, which when accompanied by the mouse support will place the tablets in direct competition with Google Chromebooks. With iPadOS, Apple aims to rule the marketspace in the coming years by evolving as the perfect replacement for expensive PCs.
