When one talks about smart stylus pencils in the market, Apple's Pencil unarguably tops the list for being among the best. Fans are eagerly anticipating the arrival of something new from the side of Apple's Chief Designer, Sir Jony Ive and his design team in this particular sector.

Release date not confirmed

Apple, at its recently concluded WWDC 2017 event, introduced the latest iOS 11 software. It is being widely rumored that the upgraded Apple Pencil (2017), likely to debut in the next couple of months, will include several new features specially designed to be compatible with the latest software update.

One of the primary highlights of the upgraded Apple Pencil will be its Instant Markup feature. This is will apparently allow users to sketch, draw, make notes or simply scribble with the use of Apple's stylus. Moreover, if a user is taking notes using the Pencil, then, these notes will directly be stored in the Notes App. This makes the entire task a whole lot easy than it used to be before. Another feature that will come equipped in the latest Apple Pencil is something called an Inline Drawing feature. This feature will enable users to draw or write in Notes while directly moving any object in the app.

Powered with Smart features

There's also a new Document Scanner feature that users can optimize to scan, sign and fill in a minute's time.

While Apple had announced at its WWDC 2017 event that they plan on bringing numerous Software Updates to its Apple Pencil, they didn't exactly provide the followers with a specific date as to when these software updates will be available. However, multiple rumor-based reports have suggested that Apple might push the Release Date of the latest Pencil's software update until early 2018, when they will launch their refreshed line-up of iPads.

This sure is a lot of waiting time.

As far as the design of the updated Apple Pencil is concerned, the stylus is expected to include a magnetic attachment this time. If this turns out to be true, then, users will be able to connect their iPad Pro devices directly with their Apple Pencils by simply using magnetic technology.

A report by Letemsvetemapplem cited sources close to Apple's plans as saying that this theory might turn out to be true. Apple's upgraded Pencil is also expected to come including a small clip so that users can place it in their pockets without facing too much trouble.

However, the above-given information has not been attested by Apple as yet. Therefore, it remains to be seen what exactly takes place in the future.
