Apple is expected to announce new iPad Pro models before the end of the year, according to one of Apple’s closest accessory partners.
Logitech’s Crayon Digital Pencil is now compatible with two iPad Pro models that have not been announced, according to our friends at 9to5Mac. This could mean that an update for the iPad Pro 12.9-inch and iPad Pro 11-inch tablets is on the way.
Logitech lists compatible devices for the Crayon on its website, including a “6th generation” iPad Pro 12.9 and a “4th generation” iPad Pro 11-inch. Considering that the current iPad Pro is the fifth generation and the 11-inch model is the third generation, this might be a hint at the next generation. We already predicted a new iPad launch in October, so it’s not surprising to see these models emerge around the end of September. I find it more surprising to see a trusted partner leak this information.
Samsung’s S Pen stylus uses technology developed by Wacom, so it is compatible with many third-party accessories. Apple’s Apple Pencil uses proprietary technology, and Logitech is the only third-party licensed to make a pencil that works with Apple screens. Other stylus devices for iPad are barely more than finger pointers with a tip that registers on the capacitive screen. Like the Logitech Crayon Digital Pencil, they do not take advantage of Apple’s technology’s accuracy and advanced features. Our favorite Apple Pencil alternative is the Crayon.
