Using an iPad with a Synology NAS – Install and configure a Bluetooth mouse

While an iPad is designed for touch. Using a touch interface to configure or work on a Synology NAS, can be problematic because touch lacks fine control. So in this video we take a look at how we can install and configure a Bluetooth mouse on an Apple iPad.

Notes: Bluetooth can theoretically allow up to seven devices to be connected to an iPad. However we recommend, that for practical use you only connect two or three devices. Its also worth noting that having Bluetooth enabled on your iPad will help to drain its battery more quickly.
