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.
