- Tapio iOS Device Switch Interface Lightning Connector
Tapio is a direct connect, dual switch interface that's suitable for everyday access, but can fly with any warp speed gamer.
Tapio is a compact adaptive switch interface. It is a native USB device that can be connected to an Apple iOS device. It accepts industry standard 3.5 mm stereo or mono plugs and directly interfaces up to two adaptive switches to an Apple iOS Device or computer. Tapio is powered from the device and does not require external power. Tapio uses standard USB Human Interface Device (HID) drivers and works with iOS Devices, Windows, Macintosh and Linux computers, and many Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) devices.
With Tapio and an adaptive switch, a single switch user can have complete access to an iPad, an iPhone or an iPod touch, using Apple's Switch Control. A single switch scanner really can move the highlight to an app on the home screen, launch it, and scan to controls within the app. All that's left is to plug an appropriate adaptive switch into Tapio, and attach it to an iOS Device using an Apple dock adapter.
The beauty of a robust direct connection is there are no wireless worries with Bluetooth pairing, drop-outs, and sluggish connections. Forget about charging batteries too, Tapio sips power directly from the iPad.

Note about Compatibility
Apple iOS Devices have worked with direct connect USB keyboards since the early days of iPhone. However, Apple only officially supports Bluetooth keyboards. For this reason whenever you plug a USB keyboard into an iOS Device, or turn on an iOS Device with USB keyboard connected you will receive a notification or message telling you that it is not supported.
Since Tapio presents itself as a USB keyboard, you will see this message. Simply tap OK directly or scan to and "tap" OK to dismiss the dialog box.
