    is it safe to assume we can't due to the 3D Touch layer in the display?

    i would imagine. I feel like the presentation would have been 11 upgrades if we could use the pencil with the phone :-/. I was hoping it would be compatible!

    Yeah, I was hoping that the Pencil would have work with at least the 7Plus

    Yes it's safe to assume. That's a whole additional level of display engineering to make that work. If they had it they would have announced it.

    I would not expect this feature any time soon. Apple only adds a feature if it really enhances the experience. It certainly does on the iPad, but the iPhone display is too small to justify frequent use of the stylus. Is someone really going to draw art on a 5.5 or 4.7" screen?

    Mr. Cook had hinted it may be possible, but nothing was mentioned in the keynote.
