    Since updating to 9.3 my pencil needs to be plugged into the Pro every time I bootup to be recognized. Previously when ever I booted up my pencil was recognized immediately. No having to plug it in.......Anyone else having this problem?

    I was going to say I noticed that also the first time I used the pencil after the update, still having that problem. So it is a bit irritating to have to do it now. Hope they correct it fast.

    I called Apple Support and they know about the problem, they're working on a 9.3.1 update to fix this and I'm sure other problems people are having from what I've read. So may be a little while.

    Boot up? Do you turn your iPad off when not in use?

    I haven't noticed the pencil problem, but then again I don't turn my iPad completely off (or reset) more than once or twice a week.

    Andy847...thanks for the info...

    twerppoet.... yeah I actually turn mine off when transporting back and forth from home and work.
    When not in use at my office I usually leave it off. Darn thing is a bandwidth hog. When ever I have it on
    it connects to our wireless in the office and everyone can tell. Web page load slows to a crawl.

    I usually turn mine off every couple of days when I charge it at night just habit from all my phones and devices I used previously.

    Oh, so you guys had to pair your Pencil once and then it connected automatically with IPP each time on boot etc.? With mine, I had to connect Pencil every time I boot or deactivate airplane mode (I put it to airplane mode during nights). It is not possible to connect from Bluetooth menu of IPP, it says, I have to connect Pencil with IPP to be able to use it. So is my device broken? I am on 9.3 already, but the behaviour was like this before, actually since I received my Pencil…

    I don't think it's broken. My pencil works the same way - sometimes it works right off the bat and sometimes I have to connect it to the Pro to get it to work. So, since it's not hard to do, I just think nothing of it.

    I also don't use my pencil on a regular/daily basis. So maybe that has something to do with it...?

    Before 9.3, I don't recall ever having to re-pair the Apple pencil after I first paired with my IPP. Not after shutting off the IPP.
