    I develop accessibility apps for a number of platforms including for iPad. There are a variety of mouse/pointer devices that can be used by the iPad and this feature has been available for years. Unfortunately Unity doesn't support a feature that gives a hover state for ios/ipados even though Apple has
    UIHoverGestureRecognizer support for some time (SwiftUI .onHover). Other platforms have had OnMouseEnter and OnMouseExit support for years and this feature is very useful especially for people with disabilities to reduce the number of actions required to play a game or use a Unity app.

    Please implement a hover state feature for ios in Unity so that ipados Unity games and apps can take action when an iPad pointer device hovers over a UI object.

    Forcing a user to have to click/tap is really not sufficient, especially for users with disabilities.
