What is interesting about this information is that this Apple Pencil was compatible with the iPhone, so it is understood that it would also be with the iPad. All Apple Pencils released so far have only been compatible with the iPad.
Of course, this Apple Pencil would have made a lot of sense in the new iPad 2022. This iPad has been completely redesigned including a USB-C port. However, it is an iPad that is still compatible with the first generation Apple Pencil with a Lightning connection, having to use a horrible adapter.
This Apple Pencil would have fixed all of these issues, plus add an option compatible with iPhones. However, it is not very well known why, Apple decided to discard the idea when everything was already very advanced. Always follow this rumor.
