Well, I’ve pretty much decided to go with a Bluetooth mouse after all. I found a good one on Amazon for less than $16. It’s a. Microsoft mouse (yes, that’s right). User reviews are mostly excellent. Thanks to all who added their suggestions on this thread.

If it is a computer accessory and IF it actually Exists.

I'd check with my favorite PI shop. MICRO-CENTER (you can find them on line)

(That's PI as in Raspberry PI not PIE as in what you make with apples)

Do you have more than one PC or device that uses bluetooth?
If at some time you can't connect to the mouse chances are it connected to another device. This one really had me baffled at first.

I bought a set of three adapters on Amazon. Two short ones and a longer one. The short one I used for a mouse. I am like you, I just like a wired mouse, although I do use the touch pad as well.

Mine is USB to the Thunderbolt connection, which I think may be the "lightening" port you mention. I can also connect my printer using one as well.

This will do it
One is lighting male to C female
Two is C male to usb A female
So you get usb A female to lighting male, which lets you plug in a usb A male to a lighting female port

They came in a set I bought on Amazon in April of 2020
Cost was low 7 or 8 dollars, set came with 6 different
adapters, all possible data pins are used, these are for data transfer interfacing, device communication, Not charge cord adapters, a camera to lighting adapter is data communication and should also work


I can explain it to you.
But I Can Not understand it for you !

That looks pretty good, Mr Wizard, but, as I stated above , I’ve already ordered a Bluetooth mouse from Amazon. I If it’s not satisfactory, I’ll go ahead and adapt my wired mouse to my iPad. Thank you. Ed

Thank you also, Scottiemom and Wa8yxm., and others.

Liked the idea of this adapter that I ordered a similar one on Amazon.com for 9.99. Will test with USB Keyboard/Mouse on my iPhone and iPad once I get it.

Apple's own documentation states it supports USB mouse in iOS v13 and higher.
