On April 20, Apple will hold a spring presentation, during which they are supposed to present the updated 3rd generation Apple Pencil stylus. And a few days before the announcement, he appeared on a Twitter video.
The author of the account claims to have received information from the Apple supply chain. Indeed, the stylus shown in the video matches the previous leaks. First of all, it has a glossy finish, like the first generation of the pen. By the way, Apple still sells the first-generation Apple Pencil for the iPad mini and entry-level 9.7-inch iPad.

Alongside the 2018 iPad Pro, the second-generation Apple Pencil debuted with a matte design and the ability to magnetically attach to the side of the iPad Pro for pairing and charging. The Apple Pencil 3 seems to have a flat edge too, allowing it to magnetically attach to iPad Air and iPad Pro for charging.
Thus, the new stylus combines elements of the two previous models. There may be some internal changes, such as new features, gestures, or higher precision. In any case, we will find out the final characteristics the day after tomorrow.
