Rumor: A New Apple Pencil For The iPhone Could Arrive In 2019

Otherwise, Apple Pencil for iPhone 12 tipped already in Korea. According to unnamed industry sources who have spoken to The Korean Herald, believes that Apple is considering a stylus that is capable of working with the iPhone for the first time. But when it’ll happen (if it ever does) isn’t so clear.

A new report puts the date at 2019, iPhone XII will handle a stylus, believed to be an iteration of a new Apple Pencil. It will likely to require an all-new iPhone in order to work thanks to the screen technology required. Currently because, the Apple Pencil only works with the iPad Pro rather than other devices in the iPad line, let alone the iPhone.

Will Apple Pencil come to iPhone?

Another news surfaced claiming that to say its sources reckon an iPhone with a “digital pen” is going to appear in a couple of years time. Apparently, this would use a slightly different technology to the current Pencil, so you wouldn’t be able to use your iPad stylus on your iPhone.

Several other branded sources claims, Apple is said to favor a stylus of the “supercapacitor stylus type” in order to be able to offer a cost-effective solution. This option would also contrast with Samsung’s Galaxy Note pen, which is based on electromagnetic resonance tech. While the Note 8 is currently the only smartphone offered with a stylus as a key differentiator.

Apple is mulling something that its late founder Steve Jobs had outright rejected — adding a stylus to its iPhone, according to industry sources on Oct. 13.

“Apple is preparing to launch the phone as early as 2019,” an industry source told The Investor on condition of anonymity. “It is also in talks with a couple of stylus makers for a partnership.”

The Apple Pencil has been getting more and more useful over time, though. With new handwriting and drawing features added in the iOS 11 update. A similar code upgrade would definitely be needed to add stylus support on the iPhone, but that should present no problems. When compared, Samsung having a portion of the market all to itself, it would stand to reason that Apple would at least work on the idea of offering a competing product.

A stylus in 2017, like Apple Pencil, is more about drawing, annotation and other artistic works rather than navigating the user interface. We’ll have to wait and see when it actually becomes a reality though. We won’t be seeing stylus support in 2018 range of iPhones, so you won’t be able to pick up a Pencil-equipped handset in your shopping for at least 12 months yet. Based on the new report, we might get our hands on a stylus supporting the phone in 2019 iPhone?
