The new Multi-Touch subsystem in the new iPad 9.7" and iPad Pro gives Apple Pencil striking capabilities alongside pixel perfect precision. Using incredibly sensitive pressure and tilt sensors, Apple Pencil instantly recognizes when you are pressing harder or shifting its angle. So you can vary line weight, create subtle shading, and produce a wide range of artistic effects — just like with a conventional pencil.
A:AnswerI bought IPad 6th today and Apple Pencil 2nd gen. Before I opened pencil I checked Apple website and it says it's not compatible. 6th Gen IPad only works with 1st gen pencil. Will be returning the pencil unopened. Hope this helps, as I had the same question.
