Taiwanese publication Economic Daily News says Apple’s 2018 second-generation iPhone X and larger iPhone X Plus models will both be compatible with the Apple Pencil.
The report, citing “industry insiders,” claims that Apple Pencil support will be limited to those OLED models, meaning that Apple’s upcoming lower-cost 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD will not work with the drawing tool. Taiwanese research firm TrendForce shared the same prediction earlier this week.
The EDN report is the second one this week that indicates Apple Pencil for the new iPhone. TrendForce offered the same prediction earlier this week.
The report, citing the ever-popular “industry insiders” as their source, claims the Apple Pencil support will be limited to the OLED display iPhone models.
If the rumors pan out, the new models will be the first iPhones to support a stylus in the 11 year history of the device.
The Apple Pencil debuted in November 2015, alongside the original 12.9-inch iPad Pro. In addition to the iPad Pro lineup, the Apple Pencil is compatible with the Cupertino firm’s new sixth-generation 9.7-inch iPad.
