The Apple Pencil features a matte finish and a flat magnetic side to allow it to attach to an iPad when not in use, plus there is a hidden USB-C port under the sliding cap for charging purposes. Unlike the Apple Pencil 2, it is not able to charge magnetically when attached to an iPad, and it is also lacking pressure sensitivity and support for tap gestures.
The Apple Pencil can be purchased from the online Apple Store in more than 30 countries, including the United States. Orders placed today will deliver as soon as November 3.
