Federighi dishes on the iPad cursor interface

TechCrunch’s Matthew Panzarino talked to Apple’s Craig Federighi about everybody’s favorite topic, the new iPadOS cursor:

“There was a process to figure out exactly how various elements would work together,” Federighi says. “We knew we wanted a very touch-centric cursor that was not conveying an unnecessary level of precision. We knew we had a focus experience similar to Apple TV that we could take advantage of in a delightful way. We knew that when dealing with text we wanted to provide a greater sense of feedback.”

I hadn’t really thought of the connection to the Apple TV’s interface, but now I can’t unsee it.
