[iOS] Keyboard Mouse Support?

Retroarch on an ipad pro is awesome. I have DosBox pure using it’s zip features to run games with the upgraded general midi support. So cool to force an apple device to play Tie-fighter.

My current issues is that it doesn’t recognize my Smart Keyboard Folio as a keyboard or my bluetooth connected mouse as a mouse. Any ideas on how to fix this?

With how annoying it is to get iOS to run retroarch I suspect this will get no attention but I still thought it worth mentioning.

No joy on my side either with 1.9.1 and this issue still seems relevant: https://github.com/libretro/RetroArch/issues/10769 (e.g. need to add more iOS specific handling into RA itself, like in UTM).

RetroArch on IOS is great now. After waiting so long for keyboard support it is in 1.18.3. DoxBox Pure runs Strife from a zip file, full keyboard support, Roland midi emulation, CRT shaders, at 60fps HDR. What a great little device iPads are for emulation now.
