Apple Pencil 3rd Generation with USB-C
Apple has officially announced its much-anticipated 3rd Generation Apple Pencil, bringing significant changes to the popular stylus. The new Apple Pencil boasts a USB-C interface for charging and pairing, a departure from its predecessor. Here’s what you need to know about this latest addition to the Apple ecosystem.
The 3rd Generation Apple Pencil sports a matte finish, with flat sides that allow it to magnetically attach to the side of your iPad for convenient storage. Its USB-C interface is a notable change, simplifying the pairing and charging process. To charge or pair the new Apple Pencil, you’ll find a USB-C port under its sliding cap. When magnetically attached to your iPad, the stylus goes into sleep mode to save power.
Apple emphasizes that the new Apple Pencil offers users pixel-level accuracy, low latency, and tilt-angle sensing, making it ideal for tasks such as note-taking, drawing, annotations, and journaling. The stylus is designed to provide a seamless creative experience, without pressure sensitivity.
This latest Apple Pencil supports new iPadOS features, including writing on the go, quick memos, and collaborative work in the Infinity Notes app. When used with iPad Pro models equipped with the M2 chip, it even supports hovering, allowing for more precise drawing.
The Apple Pencil 3rd Generation will be available for purchase at $79 (U.S) or 7,900 rupees. For educational purposes, Apple offers a discounted price of $69 (U.S.) or 6,900 rupees. You can get your hands on this sleek stylus starting early November.
