What is it?

 


 


 


 


 

 

 

Apple Pencil enclosed in a sealed case, so it had to dissect using ultrasonic cutter. Inside the “pencil” found a black plate, which fully covers the stylus. Apparently, this touch panel to recognize a touch. Apple at the presentation of the new iPad Pro is said only about supporting taps — they can be used, for example, quickly switch between tools in the editor. But iFixit believe that the company has also prepared the groundwork for future improvements.

The size of the plates is enough to register not only the touch but also his place. Consequently, over time, Apple Pencil can get the support for more complex gestures, until the switch slides in a presentation, and scrolling pages in the browser. However, while this is just a guess.
And what about the tablet?

If to speak about maintainability of the 11-inch iPad Pro, it received one point more than its predecessor — a little less shameful 3 out of 10. Craftsmen iFixit once again chided Apple for the copious use of glue, although the situation is beginning to improve. If the left side of the battery was glued in the old way, the right way was able to easily disconnect by pulling the special “reeds”.
