An inexpensive Apple Pencil (USB-C) that is compatible with USB-C and eliminates pen pressure detection has appeared, so I summarized the differences from existing models

The USB-C compatible model of the Apple genuine stylus 'Apple Pencil' ' Apple Pencil (USB-C) ' has been announced. Apple Pencil (USB-C) omits pen pressure detection function and wireless charging function, and is scheduled to be sold at a lower price than Apple Pencil (2nd generation).

Apple introduces new Apple Pencil, bringing more value and choice to the lineup - Apple (Japan)

The Apple Pencil (USB-C) looks like this. The appearance with the cap closed is almost the same as the existing Apple Pencil.

Remove the top cap to reveal the USB-C port. Apple Pencil (USB-C) can be paired and charged by connecting it wired with a USB-C cable.

Apple Pencil (USB-C) has a built-in magnet like the existing Apple Pencil and can be attached to the side of the iPad. However, it does not support wireless pairing or charging, and cannot be used like the existing Apple Pencil by ``charging by attaching it to the side of the iPad''.

The price of Apple Pencil (USB-C) is 12,880 yen including tax and is scheduled to be released in early November 2023. The differences in functionality between Apple Pencil (USB-C), Apple Pencil (1st generation), and Apple Pencil (2nd generation) are as follows.
