It refers to making changes in the appearance of mouse pointer you would like to use to click icons on your screen that you might otherwise tap. For instance, you can adjust or change the pointer’s color, shape, size, scrolling speed, and more.

Please note that he experience of using a mouse with your Apple device takes some time for getting used to as it isn’t a typical mouse pointer. It’s just a cursor that more or less mimics your finger.
