According to a report on The Verge, anyone worried that the iPad Pro’s Pencil features that were missing from the latest iOS 9.3 betas are gone for good can rest assured that they will soon be reinstated.
Apple has told The Verge that the ability to navigate iOS using the Pencil as a stylus rather than just as a drawing tool will return in future iOS 9.3 betas.
Here’s what an Apple spokesperson had to say to The Verge on the matter:
“Apple Pencil has been a huge hit with iPad Pro users, who love it for drawing, annotating and taking notes. We believe a finger will always be the primary way users navigate on an iPad, but we understand that some customers like to use Apple Pencil for this as well and we’ve been working on ways to better implement this while maintaining compatibility during this latest beta cycle. We will add this functionality back in the next beta of iOS 9.3.”
