    No issues here, but still no fix for having to re-pair the pencil after turning the IPP off. I thought they were going to include a fix in the last two updates, but no, still nothing. Getting a bit aggravated that I have to always keep my IPP on now. It's a pain I didn't have to deal with before the update to 9.3. Pencil always stayed connected even when turned off.

    Why do you turn your iPad off? I never turn my iPads off, just put them to sleep when not in use.

    Typically when you do a restart, or put the device into Airplane mode.

    Airplane mode doesn't require you to turn off your iPad. And situations where I have to restart the iPad are very rare.

    That's my experience as well. I usually only restart every couple weeks if I feel something is too slow or I want to troubleshoot something.

    No, but it forces the Bluetooth off, which is how the Pencil communicates with the iPad. I think when that link is broken, for whatever reason, the Pencil has to be re-paired. According to Apple:

    I understand, but I use to turn it off every few nights when charging. Just habit. It never had to be paired again after a reboot before the 9.3 update. I'm not the only one complaining about this, there is a thread on the Apple Support page with others saying the same thing. Same on another forum I'm on. I just don't understand why they changed it. I do keep it on all the time now, but there are times I have to turn it off.

    Well, TBH, I don't get it either. My Bluetooth headphones remain paired when I turn them and the iPad off. I turn those devices on and I do not have to go through another re-pairing. Not sure why it's different with the Pencil.

    The Pencil turns off when you turn Bluetooth off. This is the best way to save its battery life. To turn it back on you just have to re-enable Bluetooth on the iPad then plug the pencil in for a couple of seconds. If it didn't do this then the battery on the pencil wouldn't last very long when it wasn't in use as it would keep polling for the iPad.
