Apple to Restore UI Navigation With Pencil in Next iOS 9.3 Beta

That didn’t take long. Apple, in a statement to iMore and a few other publications:

Apple Pencil has been a huge hit with iPad Pro users, who love it for drawing, annotating and taking notes,” an Apple spokesperson told iMore. “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.

One thing I take away from the vocal reaction to this: the Apple Pencil and iPad Pro have passionate users.
