I’m not sure that I fully understand your question… but, hovering an object wasn’t possible until now, thanks to iPadOS 13.4 pointer support. Some apps will need to be updated to fully take advantage of it though.
And by the way, in my opinion, this partly explain why Adobe Flash on iOS wasn’t possible because hovering an interactive object without touching it wasn’t possible back then. Now it is. But thanks god, Flash is dead.
