    I'm thinking of buying 2018 iPad. I currently have a 2017 iPad (128GB) but I need one with Apple Pencil for school.

    I live in Europe, so there are no discounts for older iPad Pros, that's why I have decided to get the new 2018 iPad. Also, I need the disk space and with my limited budget at the moment, I can only afford 128GB 2018 iPad + Apple Pencil. My iPad before the 2017 iPad was an iPad 1 which had 64GB and I used up all the space.

    My current 2017 iPad uses a tempered glass screen protector and I have been pretty happy with it. I have never tried an iPad without a screen protector though, so I won't know whether it's actually faster/more sensitive without.

    However I'm not sure whether or not I should add a screen protector with the new iPad. With the new iPad 2018 and its non-laminated display and the air gap between the glass panel and the screen content below, would adding a tempered glass screen protector decrease the sensitivity of the Apple Pencil or disallow me from being able to use the Apple Pencil on the new iPad?

    I have iPad Pro with glass screen protector. Apple Pencil worked fine.
