Apple Pencil Pro specifications

The Apple Pencil Pro offers a couple of new functionalities for adapting the stylus to different creative and casual tasks like note-taking, sketching, annotating, journaling, and more. It supports a squeeze gesture that brings up a new palette allowing users to quickly switch tools, line weights, and colours without interrupting the process. A new sensor in the barrel assists in sensing a user’s squeeze. It supports double tap to switch between tools as well.

Further, Apple has packed a new gyroscope on the Pencil Pro that allows users to rotate the device. Rotating the barrel changes the orientation of shaped pen and brush tools and Apple Pencil hover lets users visualise the orientation of a tool before making a mark. It carries a custom haptic engine for providing a light pulse confirming actions like squeeze, double tap, or snap to a Smart Shape.

Apple has added Find My support to the Pencil Pro for the first time this year. This feature will help users locate the stylus if misplaced through the Find My app. It is compatible with iPad Pro 13 (M4), iPad Pro 11 (M4), iPad Air 13 (M2) and iPad Air 11 (M2) with iPadOS 17.5 or later. The stylus can be paired, charged and stored on the side of the iPad Pro through a new magnetic interface. It offers Bluetooth connectivity, measures 166×8.9mm, and weighs 19.15 grams.

Apple unveiled its first mixed reality headset, the Apple Vision Pro, at its annual developer conference, along with new Mac models and upcoming software updates.
