When moving a finger across the built-in trackpad of Magic Keyboard, the cursor transforms into the tool you need depending on the content you’re pointing to.

“And using a mouse or trackpad with iPad for common tasks like highlighting a passage of text in Word, selecting a range of cells in Excel, and moving and resizing graphics in PowerPoint is as simple and intuitive as ever,” Microsoft said.

This experience will immediately be familiar to anyone who has ever used Office on a Mac or a PC and helps make the iPad even more versatile and capable to get more work done.
