    Mine is on 9.2.1 granted, but I've seen it maybe two times or so in the past week of having the iPad pro.

    Thing is when it just happened again, I grabbed my Apple pencil and immediately the icon re-appeared and lit up in synced mode.

    I tend to think its either a bug or an idle thing? I dunno

    Saw this thread too-

    Nobody ever replied to it though (not my post), so I'm assuming it's a fluke I dunno though

    I guess if it syncs right away and functionality works, no cause of concern. iOS bugs always just irk me though, like resprings on iOS 6 and other random versions onwards getting it even STOCK.

    Luckily my pro has not resprung once like I'm reading about 9.7 pro, that would make me freak out :D

    I have had a couple of different iPad Pro 12.9 models but haven't had this issue. Maybe a hard reset would resolve it?

    yeah probably worth a shot,

    the fact that when the icon disappeared and i grabbed the pencil and synced up, is a good sign it isnt a hardware issue

    i dont want this raining on my parade :)


    seems it may be normal, since they talk about different icon cycles
    would make sense to not show sometimes when not paired with anything for a little while, but i duno

    Hard reset didn't solve it , but I noticed when it disappeared again, swiping up to get control center made it re-appear

    Must be an odd 9.2.1 bug or something I don't know, but I guess as long as it instantly responds to pencil waking it up, or control center, I guess shouldn't care right? No hiccups using pencil ever either

    Right??? :p

    Edit- Also noticed when it disappears and I go into settings or safari or anything else it comes back so it's just a bug in not showing it on home screen

    I can rest
