    I tried to do that, but it doesn't appear that I could..unless somebody's know how to do that. For example: If i wanted to connect wireless earphone and apple pencil, would I be able to do that some way?

    I connect wireless bluetooth headphones and a bluetooth keyboard concurrently to my ipad Air 2 all the time, I see no reason the pro wouldn't also be able to do this?

    Looks like you can't.

    I have had the BT apple keyboard and the pencil connected at the same time with no issues. Never tried BT headphones as I don't have a set.

    I'm typing this reply on my iPad Air with my bluetooth keyboard in Safari on slide-over while watching a movie in Netflix with the audio coming through my bluetooth headphones, for reference.

    The headphones are B&O H7. Keyboard is a Belkin keyboard case

    On the other hand, I cannot have these headphones connected to say my iMac and my ipad at the same time, which maken perfect sense to me.

    Unfortunately, I don't have a pencil to test, sorry.

    I've used Apple Pencil while BT streaming to a speaker so I don't see the limitation.

    On my iPhone 6 Plus I have two bluetooth devices and don't have any issues.
