    Can anyone report on how IOS 9.3 has affected the use of the Apple Pencil on an iPad Pro? I'd like to upgrade my iPad Pro but don't want to lose the full use of my pencil. Apple said that they were returning the full use of the pencil, which was lost in an early version of the betas, in a later version of said betas. I want to make sure that this was carried thru to the final 9.3 before upgrading.

    Thanks.

    It's fine. They put the functionality back in the later betas and it's in the final 9.3.

    Basically it'll be the same as before you upgrade.

    It messed mine up. The tablet won't recognize my pencil unless I first plug it in like I'm going to charge it. Once I plug it in, I have to go to the Widget/Notification page and select Widgets. When it shows the percentage it has been charged, I can remove it and use it as normal. It never did this before the update. The tablet always recognized it.

    if you're talking about where you hold the pencil over a photo or email and read it without opening it, No.
    I thought it did but that's on my phone.
