    New iPad Air / Mini - 1st gen pencil only?

    The new iPad Air / Mini states they are "Compatible with Apple Pencil (1st generation)". What is it about the 2nd Generation Pencil that would not allow it to work? Why would Apple release a new product and only make it compatible with an already old Pencil?
