The new iPhone 15 series from Apple, which now joins goods like the iPad Air and MacBooks in the market and features a USB-C port, was just released. With the new charging protocol, even the AirPods Pro have been updated, and the Apple Pencil may be next. Along with the magnetic wireless charging the device receives when it is connected to the iPad, the third-generation Apple Pencil is anticipated to include additional capabilities and USB-C charging.

Additionally, adding USB-C charging compatibility to the Pencil would make it more practical for users as they won't need to look for a different charger in an emergency. Further, rumours suggest that Apple may ultimately provide a variety of tips that may be used with the Apple Pencil to suit a variety of purposes.

Since artists are the main users of the Apple Pencil, providing instructions for painting or sketching on an iPad would make a lot of sense and inspire more people to acquire the original Pencil. The Apple Pencil's tips are now screwed in, but a forthcoming model may include a new magnetic end that will make tip replacement simple.

There are question marks about how the additional tips will be stored, and ideally for a device costing Rs 10,000 the company should at least give a case to keep the tips safely. The tipster for the rumoured Apple Pencil is not certain about its launch timeline but going by the reports of the new iPad Pros launching early next year, Apple could pencil in this device also for the same launch event.

The new adjustments should encourage more people to purchase the Apple pen for the Pads and help raise the price of yet another Apple product.
