If you use a mouse with your iPad, then using Hot Corners and work spaces on your tablet may make it feel as if you are using some kind of Mac — which should be useful if you are working from home and only have your iPad with you.

What are Hot Corners and Work Spaces?

As it does on all its platforms, Apple continues to pump powerful productivity tools into iPad OS.

The latest edition of the operating system provides support for external storage devices over USB-C, limited support for external mice (including Bluetooth mice), Hot Corners and work spaces.

If you’ve used Hot Corners on a Mac, then you’ll be familiar with the concept: you can set your system up to automatically do things for you simply by swiping your cursor (or Switch Control) into the corner of your screen.

Work Spaces is another useful feature. It lets you twin apps together in windows on your iPad. You might create a research window containing Twitter and Safari, for example, or Safari and your choice of RSS reader. You may find that Zoom and Messages work well together as your collaborative space. It’s easy to enter full-screen mode for any of these pairs, or to create new combinations.

So, how do you use these features?
