Apple Announces New Magnetic Apple Pencil That Pairs and Charges Wirelessly

Apple announced a new Apple Pencil at its “There’s more in the making” media event held in Brooklyn, New York today.



Sold separately from Apple’s newly announced iPad Pro models, the next-generation Apple Pencil attaches magnetically to the iPad Pro, pairs and charges wirelessly.
