Today in the network “leaked” pictures, which, as the author assures, depicts the third generation Apple Pencil stylus.
Externally, there are practically no changes, the design of the new stylus is very similar to the current model. Only the surface has become glossy, like the first Apple Pencil. The pen is charged in the same way – by attaching to the side of the tablet, and not using the Lightning connector, as older versions of the stylus were once charged.
The tip is also different: it is now more elongated. Why such innovations are not yet clear, but most likely this is due to internal design changes.
Perhaps Apple has decided to expand the capabilities of the electronic pen. For example, last year the company patented an improved tip that can copy colors from the real world using a special sensor.
We will remind, already this month Apple should introduce a new iPad Pro with a miniLED display. This is what the 3rd generation Apple Pencil is for.
