    Has anyone been using the apple pencil without any screen protection?
    I'm mainly interested in if you've been using it outside the house and for about a year or more.
    Any scratches?
    Thanks.

    I used it like that on the first gen 12.9 and 9.7.

    I've never had an issue or any scratches.

    Never used a screen protector on any of my ipads. Ive been using the pencil at least 4 hrs day at work for a year on my 12.9 and no scratches traveled a bit with it too, no problems

    I would just advise to keep the display clean regularly with a microfiber cloth and wipe the Pencil Tip every so often, which can collect debris as well.

    I used my 9.7 Pro without one and managed to scratch it while sketching. I keep my stuff very clean, so it must have just been a small piece of grit that caused it. I added a glass protector after that. When I upgraded to the 10.5, I didn't use my pencil at all until I had another glass protector installed. Scratches drive me nuts.

    It’s fine. Zero issues. It’s what each was made for.

    I've been using the Apple Pencil on a 1st gen 12.9 Pro for 17 months without a screen protector... no problems, no scratches.

    I've been using my 9.7" IPP with the Apple Pencil with no screen protector and haven't had any issues. I also keep my screen and pencil clean.

    I bought the Gen one 12.9 on launch day. It took me a couple months to find the Apple Pencil in stock. I would estimate that I have about 1.5 years using the pencil without a screen protector. I use the pencil for note taking and marking up PDF's. Zero scratches.
