Apple launched the second generation of Apple Pencil at its launch on October 30, which can be magnetically adsorbed on the new iPad Pro while automatically matching and charging wirelessly. This accessory adopts an integrated matte design. The pen body does not have any interface or moving parts. When used, it can switch tools with only two strokes of the pen body.
Previously, Weifeng has reported some details about the new generation of Apple Pencil, such as this accessory can be charged wirelessly, but does not support Qi standard. In addition, the new Apple Pencil can not be wireless charging across the protective sleeve. Now, we have gained more details. According to MacRumors, in a memo shared with retailers this week, Apple said consumers "may find the new Apple Pencil unresponsive after its initial setup" and outlined steps to address the problem.
First, match the Apple Pencil and iPad Pro. An Apple Pencil firmware update will be downloaded after the iPad Pro is networked and sent to Apple Pencil via Bluetooth. After about 10 minutes of data transfer, Apple Pencil will continue to work normally.
The next time Apple Pencil is idle for 60 seconds, pairing updates will start, taking about two minutes. During this period, Apple Pencil will not respond. It will resume normal work after the update is completed.
The new Apple Pencil is compatible with the latest 11 inch and 12.9 inch iPad Pro. Its price at Apple Store is RMB 999 yuan, and free laser engraving service is provided.
