There are rumors that Apple will debut the Apple Pencil 3 at next Tuesday’s “Spring Loaded” event. We’ll look at the speculations in a sec, but one thing I want to see is an Apple Pencil that comes in black or space grey.
After all, the iPad Pro is available in space grey, and some of us like our accessories to match our tablet. Of course, I’d also like more color options for the iPad Pro. If that happens, I’d also like a matching Apple Pencil. (Sky blue, perhaps?)
As for version 3 of the stylus …. er, pencil … here’s what the rumor mill is predicting:
° It will come with a glossy rather than matte finish.
° It may sport new sensors that only work with the new mini-LED displays almost certain to be introduced with new iPad Pros.
° The tip of the Apple Pencil could have new tech that supports additional features or more accurate drawing accuracy.
° Support for a rolling gesture that would allow you to zoom in on the iPad.
° And (the least likely of all to appear this year): the ability for the Apple Pencil to scan colors from real-life environments into the iPad.
