    It would be handy if the Apple pencil could do this. 53 Pencil attaching magnetically.

    I does do it if you get any kind of smart cover.

    The Apple Pencil magnetically attaches to the smart cover.

    Not sure if I like the idea of having something like that plugged into the Lightning port at all times. I always fear that one day by accident it will knock something and accidentally snap in the port :eek:

    I think the concept of plugging the Apple Pencil directly into the iPad Pro Lightning port is crazy, although they say it takes minutes to charge, I still think its not the most secure way of charging the pencil. Kind of like how iPhone docks are designed, being supported upright by only the Lightning port is not the best way in my opinion.

    It's not bad.. it will fall off if you move too fast.. it's a light magnetic hold but it does stick.

    The pencil doesn't weigh much at all. I had it go from 30% to 100% charged in <5 minutes. It works well, and when you get yours you will see.

    I think the point of charging via the lightning port is so when you're using it you can still get a quick charge if you don't have a lightning cable, adapter, and charger with you. It's far more convenient when all you need is a little more juice. When you have a cable, charger, and the adapter with you and need to charge, there's no need to plug the Pencil into the iPP's lightning port.
