Connect Apple Pencil To iPad

Apple’s iPad models are great for students and artists. With the help of Apple’s stylus Apple Pencil, users can get more from the device. Last week, I also bought an iPad Pro for my niece, but I got stuck trying to pair Apple Pencil 2 with iPad Pro. 

As I have never used an iPad before, I was unfamiliar with pairing Apple Pencil with an iPad. Hence, I had to ask one of Apple geeks about the pairing process. And then, I found that it was so easy peasy. It depends on which iPad model you are using. Connecting Apple Pencil with iPad Pro is like charging Apple Pencil with an iPad. Let me show you the full process in this post.
