    I didn't know this until I tried but the iPad Pro has palm rejection even with a standard capacitive stylus. No need for the Apple Pencil. As I am patiently waiting for the Pencil to be in stock, this palm rejection with my old stylus is very good!

    That's great news that the palm rejection happens no matter what!
    I'm personally holding off on find a stylus until the Apple pencil comes out. (Siri is killing my dictation today)
    The difference with the Apple pencil is the fact that it has sensors that will help determine the amount of pressure put on to the pencil and this will allow for the wide stroke, thin stroke etc.

    The other part of the pencil is that it also has sensors that will activate the iPad Pro do you have an insanely high scan right which will allow for much greater detail from the stylus.

    Although conventional styluses will work on the iPad Pro they will not have this pressure sensitivity or The equivalent detail that the Apple pencil will

    Is this enabled for specific applications only? I tried this on Notability and it did not have palm rejection

    I've heard mixed reports so it's probably per app since they need to be updated to support the new pencil API.

    I just noticed this as well. I've yet to find an application where it DOESN'T work. I can grab the screen with my fingers all over the display, and still type fine with the other hand. I can rest my arm on it and scroll in Chrome. I can lay back and hold it over my head with my thumb and palm propping it up about in the middle of the screen, still figures out my touches to scroll the page. I've tried half a dozen drawing apps with my Paper brand pencil, and my finger. All works fine.

    Yes, this impressed me also. However, it seems to have made bluetooth pressure sensitive styluses (other then Apple Pencil) not work. They will work as a dumb stylus but no pressure sensitivity.

    My Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus works fine with pressure sensitivity, and the buttons.

    I'm still waiting impatiently for my Apple Pencil, of course.

    Is that version 2? I have the first one and it doesn't work. It isn't a very good stylus anyway. The buttons are too easy to hit.
