Apple is gearing up to introduced a pretty significant iPad Pro redesign this week, with slimmer bezels, Face ID, and more powerful guts. To go along with the new device, the Cupertino company is expected to unveil a new Apple Pencil, too.
According to Ben Geskin, the new Apple Pencil will feature a more minimalist design (the silver rail is done), as well as a new way to charge the accessory. Hopefully, Apple takes a cue from Logitech’s Crayon, which allows users to connect a Lightning cable to the end of the device.
Meanwhile, the new Apple Pencil will reportedly attach magnetically to the redesigned iPad Pro, making it easier for owners to store the accessory. MacRumors speculates that the Pencil will charge when docked to the iPad Pro, which would be a cool addition.
Finally, Geskin claims the new Apple Pencil will support tap and swipe gestures, possibly allowing users to easily change features within supported apps.
While Geskin doesn’t say, we’re also hoping Apple will make the Apple Pencil easier to connect to the iPad Pro. This is another area where Apple could take inspiration from the Logitech Crayon.
It’s unclear if Apple’s new Pencil is being built specifically for the new iPad Pro, or if existing owners will be able to use the accessory with their device. For more on what the new iPad Pro has to offer, check out this leak.
Apple’s iPad Pro event kicks off October 30 at 10 a.m. ET.
