Apple will offer a 12-inch iPad Pro brand stylus «iPen»




Apple developed the stylus, you can draw and make written notes, which are transmitted in the form of a graphic image or text on the screen iPad. This was announced on Sunday KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, citing informed sources. The device will be sold with 12-inch iPad, which is currently being prepared for production.


According to Kuo, electronic pen «iPen» will offer users an option, and it will be recharged using Lightning-interface. The accessory can be used only in conjunction with the new model iPad, which probably conceived Apple, as one of the arguments in favor of buying large-sized tablet.

Previously, Apple has patented the “tactile” and “optical” stylus. The first allows you to experience a slight vibration, depending on the pressure on the display, or when you move the “pen” on the link to make communication with the iPad or iPhone, more realistic, and the second can be equipped with an optical camera for more accurate positioning on the screen.

In total, Apple received a patent for more than 30 technologies, in one way or another connected with the stylus. The vast majority of them were received after Steve Jobs died in 2011. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, there is every reason to believe that the stylus can be released with the iPad Pro (iPad Air Plus) – Tablet PC with 12.2-inch screen.

It is worth noting that Apple founder Steve Jobs believed the electronic pen sign of bad design. The chief ideologist of the corporation has repeatedly stated that the stylus for tablet or smartphone – a sign of failure. “God gave us ten styluses – let’s not invent another” – he said. However, while it was a pen, as the only possible way to control the touch interface, whereas now it is planned to release a separate accessory for designers and artists.


With wireless connectivity «iPen» will transmit on iPad Pro data about the change in position of the process of writing, and already receiving device will transform the data into a graphical image or text. Activate the “handle” will be at the beginning of the letter.
