Apple Pencil 2 Is Here With Gesture Control And Wireless Charging


Apple has finally launched Apple Pencil 2, the successor to Apple Pencil that was launched three years back. The new Apple Pencil 2 retains the original design but brings some major improvements in the form of gesture control and USB-C port.

The design is more minimalistic than ever as the Apple Pencil 2 is flat on one side which will prevent it from rolling on a flat surface.

Apple Pencil 2 now charges wirelessly by magnetically attaching itself to the iPad, unlike its predecessor that charged with the lightning port.

The new Apple Pencil 2 comes with gesture control which can be triggered by touching on the sides of the Pencil. The gesture navigation can be used to switch tools.

For example, with a simple touch on the side, you can convert your Apple Pencil into an eraser in the Notes App. Moreover, the gestures can be customized to extend the capabilities of the Pencil to different apps.
