First Looks: The All-New Apple Pencil

iPad users now have an all-new Apple Pencil to tinker around with, especially with the improved design and all the features everyone knows and loves.


The new Apple Pencil is also designed with a sleek matte finish and a flat side that magnetically attaches to the side of iPad for storage.


Apple Pencil (1st and 2nd generation) set the bar really high with advanced pixel-perfect precision, low latency, and support for tilt sensitivity, and now, the new Apple Pencil comes with the same features that all of us love and know.

The new Apple Pencil works perfectly with iPadOS features such as Scribble, Notes, and collaborating with others in Freeform.

When used with M2 models of iPad Pro, the new Apple Pencil now supports hover, which allows you to easily sketch and illustrate with even greater precision.

Pairing & Charging

No more worrying if you’d lose the Apple Pencil cap anymore – now, the new Apple Pencil comes with a non-removable sliding cap that houses the USB-C port.

Simply use a USB-C cable to connect the Apple Pencil to all iPad models with a USB-C connector for easy pairing and charging.

The new Apple Pencil automatically enters a sleep state to conserve battery when magnetically attached to the iPad for easy storage.

  • Messages now offers new ways for you to express yourselves, with a stickers experience peppered with new emoji stickers and the ability to create Live Stickers simply by lifting subjects from photos
