At first think is heavy and big but after use very happy with the big screen, especially when i open a free magazine to read which is just nice.
using it stationary prolly good.. but while travelling specially with no seat available standing in middle of crowded MRT might be inconvenience specially have to handle with both hands... (tiring even for my 11")

No. Only the new pencil is specifically for the new Pros. The older Pros and iPad 2018 can only use the first gen pencil.

It has always been there. It is possible to get it on your iPhone as well. Yeah it is nothing more but a shortcut to our local news article for now.
Thanks for the information! Didn't fiddle with the widget on iPhone so I didn't realise the option was there whereas the one was iPad was there by default.

It's weird they give us the widget but yet not give us the option to download the app. Essentially it's just a news curator that links up all the local news. Why exclude us from the party.

Sad truth but the hardware is very outdated in the current iPad mini

I used to use iPad mini 4 when I first bought the device 2 years ago, after that I never use already when I got my iPad Pro.

Apple customer service is rock solid. Had an issue with my apple pencil. They were able arrange for a replacement set by mail. All done simply using Apple online chat. Truely impressive. Resolved in 30mins.

Cause Apple news are handpicked by Apple news Editors rather than have an automated system that might be tricked by trends to share news that might be fake.

So what you are seeing is the automatic curator but there is a human touch to it after curated.

Apple's service has always been top notch. This is just another classic example

True that. We shall wait for it to arrive on our shores. It's been a couple of years? Haha

Yeah pretty much. All reviews on YouTube did say that the first generation pencil cannot be used with the new iPad Pros.
