New Mouse For Your iPad Pro in 2021: Logitech MX Anywhere 3…
This is my first video of 2021 hope, everybody’s safe out there and continuing to stay safe, but i want to get the year started off with an accessory that i just picked up for my ipad. This is the mx anywhere 3 and today this is what we’re going to be talking about, so let’s check it out. So the mx series of mice and keyboards is a great series for any type of um user of keyboards mice. Anything logitech has made these really comparable to a lot of devices. They’Ve actually put a lot of thought into these and they made them really customizable so that just about anybody can pick one of these up and use it very simple, very easy. So this is the mx anywhere 3 little brother to the master that i have over here, and it has a lot of features now. I know the master has a lot of features as well, but let’s talk a little bit about this right up front. You notice it says it has mag speed which, with our ipad, the mag speed, really doesn’t matter. We just want to make sure that it’s functional um, but this is capable to be used with your mac. Your ios devices, your android devices, chromebooks linux systems, um windows, è il nome – it works with it. This can be connected to up to three devices, and you can seamlessly switch we’ll talk about that when we actually get it unboxed, but um that’s, pretty much it one of the biggest things that we actually look forward to with these devices now would be the ability To use your usb type c and if you hear cars and stuff going by it’s because it’s hot in this room – and i got my window open so please forgive me for any sounds that you hear going by, but basically we’re just going to open this thing Up now it comes in a few different colors.
I picked up the black and that’s just an outer box, and then you get a box on the inside and you open this thing up, and here it is so all you get on. The inside of the box is the mouse itself. You get a usb adapter right, there it’s a unifying receiver and you get usb type, a to usb type c: Cavo, Carica, cable and you get your normal instructions and stuff. Putting all that back in the box. Let’S get that to the side, and this is what we want to look at now very similar to the master series, but basically it’s going to tell you what you can do, what you can connect it to and that’s pretty much it all these come with this Little flap so we’re, just gon na peel that off and that’s gon na show us the bottom on the bottom. You have your sensor and you have your on off button, and this is your toggle button down here. That’S gon na allow you to switch between devices. Then you have your little rubberized feet now. The cool thing about this is it’s going to work on just about any surface, so whether you’re using a mouse pad or you’re, using a table whether it be glass, a solid table like this one, it is going to work on the sides. You have these nice silicone feeling grips. You have a backward forward button. You got your wheel up top, you have a select button or action button up here.
Left and right. Clicks and clicks are not that loud. So big shout out to logitech for not making the clickety clickety clicks on here, but it sounds really good and then you got your receiver like we talked about earlier. Let me get all these scraps out of the way and then we will talk a little bit more in depth about this mouse now. ok, so i got it hooked up to my ipad. This is a pretty slick, little device. ora. What i like the best is the usb type c charging ability so get this you’re going to be able to do a quick charge of one minute now one. This is what logitech claims i have not tested this out yet, but one minute quick charge is going to get you three hours of battery on this device, so that’s insane number one and a full battery is going to last you about 70 giorni, that’s the claim So, just keeping that in mind 70 days on the battery, this thing is gon na last you roughly almost three months um when you’re using this device. So just keep that in mind like two months and uh in a week or so. This is what you’re gon na have when you charge this thing up fully so you’re, probably gon na charge. This thing up a few times a year, that’s about it and that’s crazy, that’s insane, but just the ability to get that one minute, quick charge that gives you three hours is a great feature to have.
The sides are nice and soft, and these buttons on here any button on here can actually be customized and you don’t have to have the app it can be customized directly on your ipad you’re, just going to go into accessibility and you’re going to click on that. Um touch, control and you’re going to go to mouse and then in there is where you’re going to actually click on your customizable things. Just click something it’s gon na. Take you into another setting and tell you to pick what you want the button to do and that’s basically it so each button on here is fully customizable. They do work and i’ve tried them out and, come ho detto, i like this thing, a lot it’s very light, very compact and very very simple. ok, so i actually have some of these buttons customized and i just want to show you how it’s going to work now on my left and right over here. I have these set up to actually scroll the screen left and right now. This is a little bit. Wonky from time to time, but like a lot of these features, still really work well, so what i’m gon na do is just uh scroll and you see how it wants to scroll, but it doesn’t. There we go there. Andiamo. You got ta kind of press it and then let it up and there we go. Oh there we go so it’s kind of one of those things you’re going to have to just put up with, and it may get better with time due with updates and things of that nature.
And then i have my click on my scrolling wheel. That’S going to take me back home so that actually works well and you can actually set up tons of different things, such as setting your volume, Uh, opening up your app drawer opening up your switcher, your control panel, things of that nature, but you have to have The assistive touch turned on so in your accessibility setting. When you go back here, your assisted touch has to be turned on. I can’t stress that enough. In order for these to work, that feature has to be on so you’re, actually on the internet and you’re scrolling up and down the screen it’s, not that wonky like it used to be. Sometimes that does happen with the occasional up and down. It goes like way off and then pulls it back really fast, but pretty much you’re going to be able to control this. The way that you want it and your selections work really well. So navigating your websites and everything are not going to be that hard, it’s going to take some time to get used to, ma, come ho detto, this thing is a great addition for your ipad. I love logitech products. They actually are some of the best out there for your ipad, with the exception of the official apple products, but these these are really really efficient. Um machines, come ho detto, you’re, going to be able to connect three devices you just toggle between them by pressing this button.
This is going to work with your macbooks. Your macbook pros your imacs any ios device, it’s going to work with windows, it’s going to work with android, so just set this up with a bunch of different devices, and you can just toggle between them whenever you need to uh a good way to be productive. Starting this new year in 2021, so hopefully this has been able to help someone out. This is the logitech mx anywhere 3. Come ho detto, one of the biggest changes that they made to this is the usb type c connector. It has that fast charge on it and that’s pretty much it super lightweight super convenient it’s about 79 dollari. Just keep that in mind, but i think it’s really good, because you’re going to be able to use it with a bunch of different devices is fully customizable and when you’re using it between your mac and your windows device, you can actually take advantage of the logitech Options: application which will allow you to just basically go between the two different platforms you can go from screen to screen and that really comes in handy when you’re working on different devices so check out that logitech flow app. If you pick up one of these and that’s pretty much it so hopefully, this has been able to help someone out i’m going to be dropping a link below. So you can check this out for yourself until next time be sure and give me that big thumbs up and please subscribe.
