The reason why you should get your Ipad Repair as soon as possible is that you can use it as a desktop or laptop if the need arises.

Get a real mouse and keyboard

The main hurdle that prevented the iPad operating like a PC was lack of a mouse.  But with the latest iPadOS technology, the iPad is given an external trackpad and mouse support, which makes it a laptop or desktop-like cursor for the first time.

But before getting the mouse to click away, you need to get a keyboard also. It is possible to pair your Bluetooth keyboard onto your iPad and start typing, but you have an option of getting a real keyboard cover which will also be a case, making your iPad to look more like a laptop.

Apple has come up with its keyboard covers that have different features that all depends on the iPad type you are using. If you have an iPad Pro, then you can get the Smart Keyboard Folio that is trackpad-free or you can as well the Magic keyboard cover that is trackpad-equipped.

If the iPad lacks the Pro Moniker, then Apple has an option of using other options when it comes to keyboards. The iPad’s embedded Smart connector is what is utilized for the Smarty Keyboard users. It also doubles up as a cover when it is not being used. In terms of viewing angles, it does not feature any flexibility.

Whereas on the PC, the window management snaps, on the iPad, you will need to drag the app, ensure to hold them in place, and then swipe them to parts of the screen for you to keep multitasking.
