    Hi,


    Is it possible to use a mouse with an iPad? Have a Bluetooth keyboard and adding a mouse would be great.

    Kind regards

    Wayne

    Hi Wayne. No, that is not possible. You can use an Apple bluetooth keyboard and also headphones but as there is no cursor for you to direct, a mouse cannot be used on an iPad.

    Well, I have to add: if you jail broke the iPad, then yes, you can install a tweak that allows you to use a mouse. As it stands now, you can't jail break iOS 6.1.3, but we are hoping that iOS 7 will be jail broken when it's released. But, if you are on iOS 6.0 to 6.1.2 (or iOS 5.1.1), the iPad can be jail broken...

    Just so's you know all the options... :)

    I think a blue tooth mouse is not that much needed also as you can use the screen to be your mouse. ;)

    Since there is no cursor using a mouse is not a feasible option still there is a video on youtube you can watch it to see if it works for you.
