All of the Apple Pencils made available thus far are exclusively iPad-compatible. However, the sketchy rumour via a tweet by Duan Rui stated that this scrapped Apple Pencil was also compatible with iPhones.

Scrapped Apple Pencil: Rumoured price, features

As per the tweet, the scrapped Apple Pencil was codenamed “Marker” and was set for launch alongside iPhone 14 in September. The Apple Pencil was likely to be priced around $49 (approximately Rs 4,000). It would not have as many features as the present Apple Pencils, and since it would be powered by a chip from the device’s screen, it would not even need a battery. It was assumed that this new Apple Pencil would also work with the iPad because it was mentioned in the tweet that it was compatible with the iPhone.

However, the data originates from a very unreliable source. So, caution is important when interpreting information about the discarded Apple Pencil.

The first Apple Pencil was launched in 2015, and the second Apple Pencil was launched in 2018.
