    Hi, With the new display technology used in the iPad pro for the Apple Pencil would using a tempered glass screen protector affect the accuracy of the Pencil, or even prevent it from working? Any advise will be much appreciated, thank you.

    Nobody knows for sure, but we can make some educated guesses. Apple goes to great lengths to reduce the thickness of the front glass in order to reduce parallax between the drawing surface and the display pane. Add more thickness and of course it'll reduce the apparent accuracy. I don't know how thick the tempered glass is, so I can't say for sure, but anything between you and the front of the iPad will reduce sensitivity.

    I would just use a case with cover for the glass, without a screen protector because of the Pencil. Or - and maybe this sounds weird - the Pencil could cause scratches? That's it, the next big #gate.
