Every September Apple arranges an event to reveal the next generation of iPhones. Rumors about the detail of the iPhone 14 are starting to surface over the last few weeks. And like it’s not enough, the expectation of the Apple Pencil 3 to launch in September this year pop’s out to the surface as well.
Let me take you back to the journey of the Apple Pencil! The first-gen model was first announced back in November 2015, and the second-gen model was announced three years later. Since it took three years to upgrade the first model, everyone expected the upcoming model to be announced back at the end of 2021. As it didn’t happen, many reports are saying that the long-awaited upgrade will take place in the upcoming September 2022. We have a limited amount of information on what might be included in an Apple Pencil refresh, but this guide covers everything we know.
This September Apple is expected to change its Apple Pencil’s design and introduce a new model. Apple is also expected to release a Pencil with a similar design. What makes it different is this time it will be made from glossier material, and larger size.
As Apple tend to launch their product in a specific white tone, many are saying the third-generation Apple Pencil will release in white as well. But as this giant tech company is known for its elegant and stylish products, there is a lot of possibilities that the third-generation Apple Pencil will come in a black version touched with glossier look.
The third-generation Apple Pencil is expected to have it “all at once” functionality of the first and second-generation model. But this time with low latency and integration with the latest iPad models. All of Apple’s iPads support the Apple Pencil, but Apple limited the second-generation Apple Pencil to its newer iPad Pro and iPad Air, so a third-generation model could be exclusive to newer models.
iPad-based inductive charging is expected, as is gesture support. As for new features, we’re not sure what could be introduced at this point. Apple patented a color sensing technology that would let the third-generation Apple Pencil sample colors from the environment. But there’s no word yet on whether that idea will make it into a finalized product.
