Actual test of the new Apple Pencil USB-C (3rd generation)｜Earlier, without warning, Apple suddenly announced the latest Apple Pencil USB-C version (corresponding to the USB-C style iPad). Although it is the third generation of Apple Pencil, this time it has simplified more practical functions and attracted users at a cheaper price. At a price of more than 600 yuan, what is the difference between Apple Pencil and the previous two generations? Have you bargained for the goods? The reporter immediately tested it.
The design of this Apple Pencil USB-C version is a bit like the second-generation Apple Pencil. It has a magnetic suction function and can be directly attached to the iPad Pro, iPad Air 4/5 or iPad Mini 6. The USB C version pen body is slightly lighter (20.5g vs 20.7g) and shorter (155mm vs 166mm) than the second generation, but it does not affect the feel at all when you pick it up and use it. Because the US-C version of Apple Pencil does not have Bluetooth connectivity and wireless charging capabilities, you need to use a USB-C cable to directly connect to the iPad when pairing and charging. The charging speed is very fast, it can be almost fully charged in more than ten minutes, so you don’t have to worry about running out of power even if you use it every day.
