Wait for a New Apple Pencil
We could see a new Apple Pencil debut alongside the new iPad mini 6.
According to leaker Jon Prosser, the iPad mini 6 will be compatible with a new Apple Pencil that's smaller than its predecessors. It's unclear if this is the same Apple Pencil that leaked before the 2021 iPad Pro launch. If not, it could certainly borrow from it.
In the buildup to the 2021 iPad Pro launch we heard a lot about a new Apple Pencil. The accessory didn't make it into Apple's announcements.
A reliable leaker named Mr. White shared an image of what very well could be a third-generation Apple Pencil.
Details are scarce, but the stylus in the photo appears to have a glossy finish rather than a matte finish. Apple's current Apple Pencil uses a matte finish.
The pencil in the photo also has a different tip. Specifically, the tip looks like it's much larger than the tips on the first and second-generation Apple Pencils.
These changes are backed up by a purported video of the new Apple Pencil from an anonymous user on Twitter.
Another leaker named "Uncle Pan Pan" (via Chinese micr0-blogging site Weibo), also says Apple is prepping a new Pencil.
Either way, if you're interested in a new iPad mini and a new Apple Pencil, you might want to put your wallet away and wait.
