Apple Pencil For iPhone Scrapped At 11th Hour, Leak Claims

by admin

When Apple announced the iPad 10th It contained the original Apple Pencil, the only tablet still using this stylus. However, new rumors suggest that the company may have had another smart stylus in the works, which was supposed to work on the iPhone as well as the iPad, but even after a million were made, its The idea was abandoned.

According to the leaker Douen RuiAccording to a report on weibo.com, Apple will release a new Apple Pencil alongside the iPhone 14 in September. While the current 1st and 2nd generation Apple Pencils only work with iPads, iPhone compatibility has been rumored for some time.

According to DuanRui, this new stylus was going to be called Maker, but I think this could be a typo for Marker and it’s a more likely name.

This stylus is significantly cheaper than the current Apple Pencil model, retailing for $49. At this price, the current model omits pressure sensing, and so does the battery. Instead, it draws the power it needs to operate from the iPad it’s writing to. Some models of Samsung’s Smart He stylus, the S-Pen, also use this technology.

The leaker goes on to say that the new stylus will also work with the iPhone and will be launched alongside the iPhone 14.

As we know, no such launch took place. one of ten criticismsthThe connectivity of the first-generation Apple Pencil is inelegant, requiring charging cables and adapters so that a Pencil with a Lightning connector can be linked to an iPad with a USB-C socket.

Interestingly, the source claims that something very un-Apple-like happened: the product reached production and over a million were made before the product was canceled. You have to, says Rieker.

How likely is this?

Well, the new, more affordable stylus will fit in very nicely with the new iPad, and the prospect of a pencil for the iPhone is long overdue. Very popular with Pen-equipped Samsung Galaxy phones, the cut-down version is suitable for users who want to take notes on the screen.

However, I have two big reservations about this rumor.

First, as mentioned above, it’s not Apple that cancels a product later in the day. The AirPower charging pad, which sadly made it to the announcement stage, was also canceled before it entered full production.

Second, it’s the supply chain that can’t keep secrets, so if this product had been made, I’m sure we’d seen leaked images by now.

Other than that, it looks like the original pencil.

There have been rumors of a smaller pencil designed for smaller tablets, so perhaps this new report plays on that.

All in all, I don’t really believe this rumor, but I like the sound of it. A cheap Pencil compatible with the iPhone is certainly interesting. Perhaps Apple made these styluses and instead of destroying them, they kept them for another occasion.
