    Found this out while charging the Apple Pencil for the first time. The cap magnetically sticks to the metallic ring at the top. So hopefully that's one less thing to worry about when charging the Pencil.

    Before someone asks, I was one of the 6 or 7 people in the USA who was able to order an Apple Pencil for pickup when the ordering opened. They didn't have them yesterday, I was called in today to collect it.

    From what I understand, the magnet doesn't help the Pencil attach to the side of the iPad Pro though, does it?

    Congrats on getting the device.

    It sticks, but not well enough. I have my ipp on my lap on the keyboard, it already dropped off twice while typing (in the postion like the picture above). I see this cap getting lost.

    Yeah, it's a very weak magnet, I fear losing the damn cap quickly. Also what's with the weird vent like circle at the top? Thought it was a button at first glance.

    The magnet is in the cap to have it securely close when covering the Lightning connector.

    Wish it stuck to the Smart Cover or the new Keyboard.

    FYI... The cap will sitck to anywhere on the keyboard where the ipp and keyboard meet. Just above the number keys. I think that is much much stronger of a magnetic bond.

    Oh, another thing. I just finished fully charging it. The entire pencil will sit between the number keys and the ipp itself. It sits there nicely. I think this is where I will leave it when I have it in the keyboard position.

    Can't wait to pickup the Keyboard soon. I was worried about it rolling off all day today.

    Does the charging adapter attach to anything magnetically?

    I wish someone would post detailed pictures of one ...

    So that children don't choke on it.
