Hello, I use an Ipad Pro with my magic mouse. Photoshop does work normally when using my  apple pencil, but not when using my mouse (all the other sofwares work normally with the mouse). Is it any way to fix it?

When you say "normally", do you mean that there is no pressure sensitivity?  

I'm able to use a Bluetooth mouse with my iPad Pro as expected in Photoshop for iPad as well as other apps.  (I use a Logitech MX instead of the Apple Magic Mouse.)

When painting with a mouse instead of an Apple Pencil, it's as if maximum pressure is being applied.

I think this matched the Desktop version where pressure sensitivity requires using a graphics tablet and stylus.

OMG! So it means I have to try with a different mouse... 
I ́m using a Magic Mouse. Certain bottoms work some others dont, so I have to use my hand (For example when moving layers)....

It wouldn't hurt to try a different mouse, but I'm not sure that's the issue.

I could double-check that your iOS is up to date and reinstall Photoshop or iPad.

Howdy Pilar,
What specifically happens with you try to use your Magic Mouse with Photoshop on the iPad that's different?
Thanks,David
