While rumors of a new iPad Pro coming this year has been around for several months now, there has been no speculation surrounding a second generation Apple Pencil. According to sketchy rumors from Chinese social media, Apple Pencil 2 will be launching alongside new iPad Pro models this year.
The rumor seems to be based of supply chain sources, however Chinese social media as a source may not be the best in terms of credibility.
There seems to be no details beyond the fact that there’s a new one on the horizon, however. Although the functionality of a new Pencil are endless, anything from Mac trackpad support, down to iPhone support are all possible.
In terms of iPads, we’re expecting a 12.9-inch iPad Pro, a low-cost 9.7-inch model, and a brand new 10.5-inch model with reduced bezels.
