Apple Pencil 2
According to some rumors originating from the Asian supply chain, it would appear that Apple is gearing up to put out Apple Pencil 2, with a release date set somewhere around this Spring. It is speculated that the new Apple Pencil, along with the next generation iPad Pro, will be revealed at an event this March.
Although not one of Apple’s flashiest products, the Apple Pencil has its fair share of uses, especially for customers who use the iPad Pro. Accurate writing and sketching on iPads were not very refined before the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil combination. And now Apple has set out to further improve upon this functionality.
Potential features for the Apple Pencil 2 are not yet known. It is expected that Apple is planning to implement new functionality within the new iPad that would allow the Apple Pencil to function with more apps than before. In addition to this, Apple would make it possible for the Apple Pencil to be attached to the iPad Pro. This is a major demand of iPad Pro users. Furthermore, the Apple Pencil 2 is also expected to have a regular pen clip, which would allow users to clip the Apple Pencil to their pockets for ease of access. These changes coupled with the assured improved responsiveness and accuracy would provide a top of the line product.
The original Apple Pencil was released in fall 2015 side by side with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Expect support for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro being added in Spring 2016. Both these products are also due for an update. This makes it the perfect time to bring out the new Apple Pencil as well.
Although there is not a lot of information available about this new Apple Pencil, everyone eagerly looks forward to seeing what Apple brings forward in their first update to the original Apple Pencil.
