    There was a rumor saying that Apple pencil will work with the new large Touch Pad. Has this been confirmed false rumor?

    Considering they took so much time explaining how much better the emoji bar will be, they would've spent at least 20 minutes on something actually useful

    Nope. It's just big. Probably so you can use your palms to move the cursor while typing.

    It was rumoured but never confirmed which i presume means it's not happening, having two fingers on the touchpad and using the pencil at the same time would be quite a feat.

    as good as this bar looks, it still feels like its pales in comparison to all the other touch technology out there, a touchscreen on a mac would be a game changer yet they are very much against it.

    an ipad with full utilisation and some connecting ports would equally be a game changer on the ipad pro and actually cross over into replacing a laptop territory.
