    Flat side so it doesn't roll away, magnetic so it can stick on the side of the iPad, wireless charging from that position on the side of the iPad, apparently?

    Yup, those are much needed improvements. Edit: also improved: it is apparently matte, so not slippery like the old one. Better!

    MIA: more quiet tip. Hopefully they did address it and just neglected to mention it..

    Edit: the verge article on the pencil: https://www.theverge.com/2018/10/30/18023772/new-apple-pencil-2-2018-ipad-stylus-price-release-date

    Apple bumped the price to $129. Because why not.

    Consider I paid €1100 for the first gen iPad Pro 12.9 128gb and now the newer 256gb costs €1289...
    Not much more than the original.

    Underwhelmed so far. Looking at the "what's released so far" - they're ignoring the fact a lot of artists have stuck a rubber sleeve on the pencil for grip.

    A12x chip is good though - no mention on RAM.?

    RAM is 4GB for most versions, 6GB for 1TB storage version.

    At least now Astropad will be able to do native screen res @ 60Hz Cintiq mode with USB-C cable...
