    I have been a Unity 2018 user for a long time. Now i am seeing people use the new Unity Input system on the Unity 2020.4 version.Why should I Switch? Where are the differences between the Unity Legacy Input System API and the new Unity Input System?
     
  2. It is longer than a forum post. I recommend to start reading the manual, there are sections to help the switch too.

    But also here is a (pretty much) comprehensive guide post about the subject:
