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.
But the tip won't wear off unless you use it regularly on a daily basis over several months. My pencil also isn't regularly used unless I've notes to take which is not every day too, so I expected the tip to last a long time.

By the time it does wear out, maybe got new pencil out which is rumoured to be out together with the new Pros later part of this year.

You can try it out at Apple Store or any Nubox and iStudio outlets.

It only takes 15s to charge 30mins worth of battery power for the pencil with any of the ipad lightning socket(not adapter). You can't find any there or just ask for any staff before you walk away ?

Also agree on that. The pencilís battery is very small and charging it to full even from 0% is very quick.

So itís ok to keep it connected for extended periods of time, as and when just plug it in to charge.

No lah, thatís not what I meant. Sticking out is when youíre charging it, keeping it connected means you can stow away your pencil but keep it connected via BT.

Iíll occasionally use the pencil for notes taking via Notability. Sometimes I donít connect it if Iím not going to use it for an extended period of time.

I remembered once I didnít use the pencil for more than two days, then my iPad prompted me that the pencil only have 5% batt left.
