Does the 10th-generation iPad 2022 support Apple Pencil

At $449, the 10th-generation iPad 2022 comes with a bigger and better display, improved cameras, an advanced chip, and more. However, speaking of the Apple Pencil compatibility, you can only use the first-generation Pencil.

As you might have noticed, the 10-gen new iPad has moved from the old Lightning to USB-C, in accordance with the new EU ruling that electronic devices must use USB-C as the new charging standard. This is good news as now you can use your USB-C fast charger for more devices.

However, the complicate thing is that the new tablet only support first-generation Apple Pencil, which is charged and paired with the Lightning connector. That is to say, if you already own the old Pencil, you need to buy a USB-C to Lightning adapter separately (Apple offers it for $9). While if you don’t have an Apple Pencil, you can buy one from the official for $99, with the adapter included in the box.

Of course, for those who want to take advantage of the Lightning connector, Apple’s 9th-gen iPad is still on sale, and it is the only iPad with a Lightning connector for now.

Can you use the 2nd-gen Apple Pencil on the new iPad 2022? Sadly not. So far, the Apple Pencil (2nd-gen) only supports iPad mini (6th generation), iPad Air (4th generation and later), iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd generation and later), and iPad Pro 11-inch (1st generation and later). Turn to the new iPad Pro (either 11-inch or 12.9-inch) for 2nd-gen Apple Pencil compatibility.

As for the keyboard, the new iPad does not support the Magic Keyboard but has a new Magic Keyboard Folio which is exclusive to it and hinges differently to the other Magic Keyboards.

You can now pre-order the 10th-gen iPad 2022, and it t officially goes on sale next Wednesday, October 26.
