Will be set to true if the input device's connection with the system has changed, such as from "connected" to "disconnected" or "disconnected" to "connected". You can easily access the input device's current connection state by accessing the event.device.connectionState property.

Will be set to false if the input device's current connection with the system has not changed. This means that some other aspect of the input device's status has changed, such as it being reconfigured.
