some reviews says, the new iPad still weird using apple pencil on it... because unlike iPad Pro's which is laminated this new iPad is not so screen have some gap on it.

I'm actually due for replacement of my iPad Mini for more than a year already just waiting for this June event if what they can offer I'll opt for iPad Pro 10" instead of getting the cheaper base model.. If they dont offer new mini.

Unless you really need to travel then purchase inside. Else just get from outside.

Apple Pencil fully charged and Bluetooth connected but canít write on iPad Pro. Anyone faced this problem before? How did you resolve the issue?

Just bought Apple Pencil from Apple store today
Would like to ask around if anyone here using Apple Pencil without screen/ glass protector on?
I did not apply any glass/ screen protector on my iPad Pro.

Wondering if it does cause any scratches or issue with iPad Pro anti reflective coating, I can only find very limited info on these

TIA!

Been writing on my 9.7Ē iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil with no screen protector for over 2 years now. Not a single scratch or issue with the display.

Got my 10.5" Pro with the pencil and a Zagg InvisibleShield, and also Logitech's slim combo keyboard case yesterday. Writing with the TG screen protector is butter smooth and I presume it should be the same without it. The pencil's tip is also very smooth but in the box itself it comes with a spare tip with an adapter for charging the pencil using the USB cable.

The thing is, is it necessary to change the pencil's tip after some time of usage? Does it really wear off?

Have been using the Apple Pencil on a regular basis for the past 10 months for taking down notes during lectures.

There wouldnít be very obvious blunt or wearing off from the Pencil tip, but you will feel like there is more drag when writing on the iPad - which is what I am experiencing it now.

In the Apple Pencil packaging comes with an extra tip and a female-female lightning connector for you to charge it with a lightning cable.

The battery is able to last me for about 5-6 hours of continuous usage (during lectures). If the battery is low, just plug it in your iPad (or your iPhone) for 5-10 minutes, and it can last for another 2-3 more hours.

What do u recommend?

If you’re just signing on your iPad, i think any good style would do the trick?

I have a ipad pro 10.5 since last Oct? Forgotten when i last bought it.. lolx.

No screen protection as well. Bought the Apple Pencil together with the Apple Pro, together with the Smart Keyboard.

Thoght I didnít use the AP daily or whenever I use my ipadpro, I am sure the tip will wear off in some regular use basis. If not, they would not have given a spare tip when you buy a new AP and also selling them as accessory.
