It appears like Apple is intending a Magic Mouse with Pressure Touch modern technology integrated, or a minimum of the firm has filed a license for such a peripheral.
The Pressure Touch will work much as it does with the trackpad that was presented with Apple’s MacBook Pro 13-inch with Retina display that debuted last spring.
In other words, wherever you press the surface of the Magic Mouse, you’ll obtain the same consistent click with haptic comments– responses which replicates a click perfectly, as we noted in our assess of in 2013’s MacBook Pro 13-inch.
How hard you click will additionally be registered by the mouse, consequently opening a lot more possibilities for the UI, with different toughness of press setting off various functions– as has actually constantly been the idea with Force Touch considering that it was first disclosed on the Apple Watch.
Both the MacBook Pro 13-inch and also 15-inch had Pressure Touch trackpads presented last year, as well as the modern technology likewise showed up on the Magic Trackpad 2 in the autumn.
It certainly seems an organic enough move for Apple to extend Pressure Touch to its Magic Computer mouse, also, with any luck we’ll see some compelling usage cases for the modern technology in OS X. One of our main objections of the tech on last year’s MacBook Pro was the fact that it appeared more of a gimmick compared to a real helpful attribute, yet Apple will certainly doubtless be functioning hard to transform that.
Cupertino’s patent was found by Patently Apple as well as was released today, although it was initially filed in the initial quarter of 2013.
