We now know when will Apple launch Pencil 2 and what is the Apple Pencil 2 release date. The first Apple Pencil was released along with the iPad Pro back in September 2015 and it is obvious that the company is expected to churn out an update of it coming Autumn 2016. And if you ask us the Pencil 2 release date, we would put our money at upcoming Macworld.
At the Macworld event, Apple will be releasing updated versions of the 9.7 inch and 12.9 inch iPad devices and of the Pencil stylus as well. new features of the iPad Pencil 2 can include interchangeable tips or nibs as some people like to call them. This is evident as this is the only thing that the Apple Pencil lacks when compared to the stylus of the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 that has replaceable and interchangeable nibs of variety of shapes and sizes.
The Apple Pencil 2 is also expected to include new sensors that will tell the iPad about its condition and this ability to provide information behind touch input will make it much more intelligent than ever.
The iPad Pencil 2 will have eraser function and this feature has been well documented in the patent that Apple recently filed. This will allow the back of the Pencil 2 to be used as an eraser. Last new feature is touch ID. Yes, the new Pencil 2 will have touch ID that can be used to authenticate the user of the stylus. Also check out the cost of iPad pencil cap which is super high.
