    Rumour has it that Apple will launch Pencil 2 this spring.JPG

    According to a new rumour from Chinese microblogging website Weibo, via AppleInsider, Apple will be launching the “Apple Pencil 2” this spring, complete with a new magnetic means of attaching it to an iPad, in similar fashion to the iPad Smart Cover. This means that you won’t have to worry about misplacing your Apple Pencil when you put it down after using it.

    The Weibo source also says that the Apple Pencil 2 will have a clip, very much like a regular pen, so that you can attach it to your pocket, just like a regular pen.

    With Apple expected to launch three new iPad Pro models this year, it looks like Apple is also stepping up its game when it comes to iPad accessories as well.

    The current version of the Apple pencil costs $99 and has advanced sensors to determine tilt and pressure sensitivity, with the result being that it is more precise than a standard stylus.
