iPad compatibility of new Pencil

As per the company, this third Pencil works with ‘all’ iPad models with a USB-C port, including iPad Pro, iPad Air, and iPad mini. It is particularly ‘great’ with the 10th-generation iPad, according to Apple.

When used with M2 models of iPad Pro, the device supports hover, allowing users to sketch and illustrate with a greater precision. Also, when magnetically attached to an iPad for storage, it enters into a ‘sleep state,’ which helps it preserve its battery life.

Additionally, the product works ‘great’ with iPadOS features such as Scribble, Quick Note, and when collaborating with others in Freeform.
