    I’m assuming so because you just magnetically connect to the side and it auto pairs to that device. Either that or NFC.

    Do we know if Apple Pencil 2 can be paired with the 2018 9.7" iPad, or can that iPad only pair with the original Pencil?

    AFAIK there is no cross compatibility with the old pencil/iPad and new pencil and 2018 iPad Pro

    Does Apple Pencil 2 wirelessly charge from the new iPad Pro only, or can it also charge from a Qi wireless charger?

    I was hoping by a single tap the gen 3 iPad Pro can recognize and autoconnect the pencil without having to dock it to the magnetic charging port first
