Consumers can also make the best use of new Pencil with the latest iPadOS features such as Scribble, Quick Note, and working with others in Freeform. And, on the M2-powered iPad Pro, the new Apple Pencil supports hover, allowing users to sketch and illustrate with even greater precision.

Unlike the previous iteration, wherein the stylus gets charged while magnetically attached to the iPad, the new Apple Pencil goes into to sleep state to preserve battery life. It can be charged with the Type-C cable that comes with new generation iPad, iPad Air, iPad Pro models, and iPad mini.
