- Tap the Side to Pair: This accessory no longer needs to plug into the bottom of your iPad Pro to pair. A simple double-tap on the side of your iPad Pro activates pairing mode, making better use of the limited space on the side of the iPad Pro.
- Better Latency: With double the latency of the first-generation, the 2nd generation has nearly no detectable lag time between the movement of the Apple Pencil and the response on your iPad Pro, making writing, drawing and taking notes smoother than ever.
- Flat Design: The flat area near the tip makes it better suited for things such as erasing and shading with its flat side, allowing for a more accurate control when using the eraser or other pencil tools. The design also safeguards against accidentally rolling off of your desk.
