Apple Scrapped Plans for New Apple Pencil With iPhone Support at the Last Minute [Rumor]

Apple allegedly planned to introduce a new cheaper Apple Pencil last September but cancelled the device last minute, according to a rumor on Weibo. The stylus was purportedly codenamed 'Maker'.

Twitter user @duanrui1205 translates...

At the Apple Event in September, Apple was originally going to release a new Apple Pencil code-named Maker, priced at about $49, with no pressure sensing and no battery needed, using a chip to power the stylus from the screen, similar to the Samsung S- Pen.

The report claims the pencil featured support for the iPhone and was cancelled so late into production that one million units were already made.

The new Apple Pencil even supported the iPhone, but the project was terminated closer to launch. It is said that more than one million levels had been stocked at that time, and now they should all be scrapped.

We've been unable to verify this report; however, if one million units were really produced we're bound to see one leak out eventually.

The current generation Apple Pencil 2 regularly costs $129 and was on sale for $89 today; however, that sale appears to be over already. We'll let you know if the discount returns for Black Friday.
