iOS 13 also supports a mouse and a keyboard [Video]


A YouTube video made by Napabar has shown the iPhone X getting an original Macintosh keyboard and mouse setup, which is a mock-up of what iOS 13 users will be getting when it launches this fall.

iOS 13 Mouse and Keyboard

The channel shows how the iPhone could be hooked up to different accessories and peripherals, including a Kindle, a floppy disk and an iPod. The setup made use of an RJ11 telephone-style connector for the keyboard and a serial connector for the mouse, which was then plugged in a USB adapter. The adapter went to a hub, which connects to an iPhone stand via a single connection USB-to-Lightning conversion.

Mouse and Keyboard Support on iOS 13

For those who’d like to try it out themselves, they would need to enable a setting in Accessibility called ‘assistive touch’, which will enable the keyboard and mouse.

After trying out a few Siri shortcuts, Napabar sent a tweet to Tim Cook detailing the video he made.
