    I'm planning on purchasing a second Apple pencil - One to leave in my backpack & one to leave at home for use. Anyone know if I'm able to use both pencils? Not necessarily at the same time but when I'm at school I use one, and when I'm home, I use the other one. Will I have to unpair/repair every time I switch pencils to use on my iPad Pro?

    you will need to plug the pencil in to pair each time you change pencils. The iPad only stay paired with one at a time. I wanted to do the same, but now just leave on in my bag that is always with me as a backup just in case I leave the pencil I always use either at home or at work by mistake. Which has happened a couple of times.

    Yep, you have to re-pair each time you swap physical pencils because as mentioned above, only one pencil can by paired at a time. It literally only takes 1-2 seconds to do though. Plug it into the Lightning port, the Bluetooth icon in the Status Bar will blink twice and that's it, it's paired.
