Do­ing a top job?

How­ever, nei­ther of these de­sign is­sues im­pact its abil­ity to fit into the ex­act same pouches or bag pock­ets that an iPad Pro cur­rently oc­cu­pies.

So nei­ther is a prac­ti­cal im­ped­i­ment to

it­self for an iPhone. Note that this isn’t the equiv­a­lent of a USB-C con­nec­tion on a Mac­Book — it can’t be used for as many pur­poses. So you can’t just stick some­thing in and trans­fer what­ever’s on it onto the iPad. It seems to still de­pend on whether there’s an app on the iPad that will open it up. There’s also a newly de­signed Ap­ple Pen­cil (sold sep­a­rately at €135). The big­gest im­prove­ment is that it’s mag­netic and at­taches to the side of the iPad, whence it im­me­di­ately be­gins to charge.

This is a big up­grade on the last Pen­cil charg­ing sys­tem which meant awk­wardly stick­ing the de­vice into the Light­ning port and leav­ing it hang­ing out. But it also has more sen­sors in it. The most prac­ti­cal ben­e­fit to these is that you can now tap the side of the Pen­cil to change its func­tion (to an eraser, for ex­am­ple).
