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 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.

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.
