Apple adds Windows Precision Touchpad gestures to Boot Camp India News, The Indian Express

Apple recently announced that some macOS Monterey features won’t be coming to Intel Macs, indicating the company may be phasing out Intel Mac support earlier than usual. But a new, surprising update now adds support for Windows Precision Touchpad to Boot Camp, a tool found only on x86 Macs.

Windows Precision Touchpad support is coming to Boot Camp via a surprise software update. First noticed by users on the r/MacOS subreddit and reported by The Verge, Precision Touchpad support works better than the third-party workarounds that Boot Camp users have been relying on for nearly a decade.

Those used to using Windows may be surprised at how many trackpad features rely on Precision Trackpad support. Features like tap to click, right corner to right click, and multi-finger gestures are impossible without Precision Trackpad support, which can make running Windows 1

0 on a MacBook difficult, given the lack of dedicated trackpad buttons.

Unfortunately, only a few Macs get support for Windows Precision Trackpad. A support document from Apple states that only Macs with a T2 chip can access the feature, with the exception of all Macs made before 2018. You can find a full list of Macs with a T2 chip on Apple’s website.

While we’re happy to see Apple continue support for Intel machines, it’s a little odd given macOS 12’s emphasis on M1 machines. Hopefully this is a sign that Apple will continue to support x86 devices for years to come.
