The 11-inch iPad Pro features an immersive, edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display.¹ The new pro cameras, Wide and new Ultra Wide, combined with the all-new LiDAR Scanner enable entirely new experiences in the next generation of augmented reality (AR) apps. A12Z Bionic chip for powering essential apps and graphics-intensive games. Support for the new Magic Keyboard with trackpad² and Apple Pencil.² All-day battery life.³ And access to millions of apps on the App Store to transform iPad Pro into anything you need, anywhere you need it.
I came at this Generation iPad Pro from a 2017 iPad Pro that was starting to feel a little long-in-the-tooth. I wanted a device with a good screen size, better battery life and support for the Apple Pencil for 3D Design work. I was also looking forward to the ability of using the new LIDAR camera stack to import rudimentary 3D Models.
The new form factor (introduced in the previous generation iPad Pro) includes USB-C fast charging, instead of the lightning connector and removes the iconic home button. So far, I don’t miss either.
The battery life is nearly double what I was getting on my previous iPad Pro. The screen has great color and is viewable even when working on my backyard patio.
Whether for professional design work for casual internet usage, the iPad Pro continues to be the gold standard in tablet computing. The 2020 refresh takes what was already great about the iPad Pro and further improves it.
I justified getting this as a study tool and so far my study guides are coming out great! I like to use pictures and different colors and the apps I can use on the iPad hep make them great. I’m excited to try out note taking on it in the fall, but for now I’m using it to study over the summer and make study sheets to share with my friends and the other students I tutor. I also love the other uses of this iPad, like watching streaming services and youtube videos, accessing my photos, messages, and social media, and reading on the kindle app.
I purchased this as the sole device that my son would use for "virtual school". I was afraid that the variety of apps and links wouldn't work but we are two weeks in and EVERYTHING works great! We purchased the magic keyboard (worth the $$) and the pencil (look for an open box) and that combo is worth every penny!
The pencil helps in not forgetting how to write and the magic keyboard helps in how to type AND use the trackpad as a mouse.
Dropped down from an older 12’9” iPad to this 11” and am happy about the decision. Still large enough to see and the reduction of weight is a benefit for flying around with in a backpack. I also got the magic keyboard which I enjoy very much after not having a separate keyboard for quite awhile. Good product with no issues.
My Mom is in her 80’s has problems seeing, so I upgraded her mini to the Pro. Now she can see pictures, email, kindle , etc and not h to scroll all over. The colors are vibrant and the pencil is a must.

Let's just cut to the chase: if you already own 2018's refresh of the iPad Pro, you probably shouldn't upgrade to the 2020 edition. That's because this latest iPad Pro is more of an incremental update than its predecessors have traditionally beenFull Review

A:AnswerNo this iPad does NOT support the first generation pencil. The 1st gen uses lighting to charge and connect. This iPad has USBC. The newer (2nd gen) pencil uses a magnetic connection to use inductive charging and establish the Bluetooth connection as well.
