New Affordable 9.7 inch iPad to Receive Apple Pencil Support

By Radu Iorga

The Apple Pencil is about to get bigger and more accessible to iPad users, as it seems that Apple is ready to make it available on the cheaper iPads. On March 27th Apple is going to have an event scheduled and it’s supposed to be a “field trip”. Some say they may launch a new iPad there and now there’s a theory that it’ll be a cheap model working with the Apple Pencil.

As you probably know already, the Apple Pencil support has been limited to the iPad Pro since its 2015 debut. The pressure sensitive stylus increases the creative capacity of the device, letting us write, draw and paint straight on the screen. KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo recently told investors that the new 9.7 inch iPad will get Apple Pencil support, plus it’ll also gain a keyboard accessory.

Kuo also claims that the Cupertino firm is going to abandon the iPad Mini series, as big screen smartphones have cannibalized it. The new low priced iPad is going to be mass produced since Q2 2018 and it’ll probably support the Apple Pencil. The price being thrown around by rumors and leaks is $259 and the product is expected to improve on the features of last year’s model.

Better RAM, CPU and storage, I imagine. Apple’s Field Trip event will probably bring us new education apps and new iPad accessories too. We’ll learn more on the 27th.

New Apple Pencil Being Developed, According to Analyst

By Radu Iorga

Traditionally Apple unveils new tablets around Spring time, maybe March, so we may be close to a new unveiling. Or they could keep the OLED iPad Pro for the fall. What’s sure is that something is brewing and a new stylus may also be in the cards. Giving us the down low on the scoop is an analyst, after the break.

Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang claims that Apple could be working on a brand new Apple Pencil. It’s said to go past tablets and be designed with the iPhone X Plus in mind. That device is rumored to be a 6.5 incher, so it’s on the hefty side for sure. This would make it a Galaxy Note rival and as such it needs a stylus of course. The Apple Pencil isn’t exactly ideal for smartphone use, as it’s rather big and not dockable anywhere.

Still, Apple could come up with something smaller and more stylish. The thing is that back in the days of Steve Jobs, the stylus was despised by Apple, but now they’re actually growing fond of it. Even now the Apple Pencil has some quirks, like the way it charges hooked up to the tablet in the most uncomfortable way possible. Maybe generation 2 will come with a carrying case or some other way to charge it.

Expect improved precision, long battery life and a smaller format, if it’s indeed meant for the iPhone X Plus. Otherwise, it’ll be the same size and meant for the iPad Pro 2018, with extra sensititivity.
