Apple confirms new "Pencil" Stylus won't work with Qi charging standard

Apple Pencil second-generation

Apple introduced its second-generation “Pencil” stylus for iPad Pro on October 30th. The new version features wireless charging but only via physically resting on the side of the iPad, not via the Qi wireless power standard.

Before you plunk down $129 for Apple’s new “Pencil” stylus, you should be aware that the device will not charge via the standard “Qi” wireless power technology, according to Apple.

In response to an inquiry from ZDNet, an Apple spokesperson confirmed that Apple Pencil doesn’t support Qi. The only way to charge the device is by resting it on the side of the iPad Pro computer. Apple did not provide comment as to why Qi is not supported in the device.
