A new feature coming in iPadOS 15 allows users to enable the Magic Mouse right click on iPad. This increases productivity and makes Apple’s peripheral a lot more user-friendly. The Magic Mouse secondary click option adds extra functionality especially when browsing iPadOS apps like Safari, Mail and Messages.
How To Enable Magic Mouse Right Click On iPad
This feature has been spotted during the iPadOS 15 beta testing. To be more precise it has been introduced in the 6th Beta version and will most likely be included in the public release scheduled for this fall.
- Open Settings on iPad and tap on General.
- Scroll for Trackpad & Mouse.
- Tap on Secondary Click, available under the Mouse section.
- Select Right and you’re ready to go!
Tip: Your Magic Mouse 2 has to be paired with the iPad for the Trackpad & Mouse setting to show up below Keyboard. Also, the peripheral needs to be connected to the iPad for the Secondary Click option to show up in iPadOS 15!
How Use Magic Mouse Right Click On iPad
After enabling the Secondary Click option you can open Safari and right click on an URL. You will get a quick actions menu that allows you to Open the link: in a new tab, in Background, in Tab Group, in Split View, Download Linked File, Add to Reading List, Copy or Share.
Tip: The Magic Mouse has a single button! You can generate a right click by pressing on the right side of the mouse. This might be the reason why non-Apple mice are already supporting right-clicks on iPad.
