When the Apple Ipad Pro was teased and announced, one of my biggest worries was the fact that the Apple Pencil accessory would have to be charged by plugging into the Ipad Pro’s charging port. So many concerns arose… What happens if my iPad is already out of juice? What if my desk is relatively narrow and someone accidentally hits the thin portruding Pencil as it hangs off my desk? What if I really just don’t like how the Pencil looks when it is plugged into the iPad?
Thankfully I can still look forward to this promising device now! According to 9to5Mac, the Apple Pencil accessory will come with an adapter for our regular lightning cables that will allow the lightning cable to insert at one end and the pencil at another. Now, charging the Pencil through the charging port of the iPad is merely a bonus feature for convenience but isn’t absolutely necessary. Now what I am looking for next is a nice case (maybe even a keyboard case) that has effective storage for the Pencil.
