    Does anyone know if two Apple Pencils can be paired with the iPad Pro at the same time? The reason I ask is that I'm thinking of having 2 Pencils; one in use, and one ready to go as a spare (such as when one needs charging). Anybody tried this? Thanks in advance.

    Takes seconds to pair a pencil but it won't pair to two so that answers the second question

    Here's another question - can you have a pencil paired to two different iPad Pros?

    Dosnt seem to work either. I played with this in store before mine arrived.

    Played with it on its paired iPad then paired it with the iPad on the keyboard stand and tried it out. Went bk to original device and had to repair.

    Yep, you can't use two Pencils at the same time. You can only have one paired. So if you want to switch to a different Pencil, you need to plug the second one in first. And then, if you want to use the first one again - you need to plug that one in again.

    So... For that game of Noughts and Crosses you have to share a pencil!

    As my daughter told me at the weekend... "Sharing is caring"
