Unless you have an iPad (2018) or iPad Pro, don’t purchase the Apple Pencil just yet.
The new iPhone models won’t let you use Apple’s enhanced stylus, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. It looks like the Cupertino-based company might’ve decided against Apple Pencil support for the upgraded hardware despite recent information suggesting the feature was greenlit. You’ll still need one of Apple’s more recent tablets to take advantage of the Apple Pencil.
Multiple reports claimed a few weeks ago that the 5.8- and 6.5-inch models, which will have OLED panels, would let you use the Apple Pencil on their displays. Kuo says that Apple couldn’t offer a “good user experience” for its stylus on the iPhone.
As for the launch date, the well-respected analyst revealed Apple will introduce its refreshed lineup during the week of Sept. 9. The release date, however, won’t be shared by all three iPhone models.
Apple could be forced to delay the 6.1-inch LCD model until a “slightly later” time. Another report has suggested it could arrive about 4-6 weeks after its siblings. The LCD panel’s suppliers, JDI and LG Display, are experiencing production woes. Both the 5.8- and 6.5-inch models should go on sale by the end of September around the world, though.
The iPhone will be offered in dual-SIM varieties for the first time as well. From Kuo’s report, it sounds like Apple will limit the availability of these versions for select markets.
Now that we’re only two weeks or so away, the iPhone rumor mill is bursting at the seams. We’ll be on the lookout for any new information on Apple’s latest hardware. So stick with TechnoBuffalo for continuing coverage.
