‘Apple Pencil Pro’ Referenced in Code on Apple’s Website in Japan


A reference to an unreleased “Apple Pencil Pro” has been spotted in the source code for Apple’s homepage in Japan. We have independently confirmed that the code exists, but it would be unsurprising if Apple removes it after it was discovered.

This finding suggests that an Apple Pencil Pro could be announced at the Apple Event tomorrow. However, given the code does not appear on Apple’s homepage in the U.S. or other countries, there is a chance that the Japanese website made a translation error.

A computer translation of the source code:

Folded green, yellow, orange and blue paper forms the Apple logo. Inside the logo, you can see the creator’s hand holding the Apple Pencil Pro and drawing.

Regardless of whether the Apple Pencil Pro name is used, a new Apple Pencil is expected to be announced at the Apple Event. Rumored features include a new “squeeze” gesture and haptic feedback, while Vision Pro support is also a possibility by visionOS 2.

It is likely that the Apple Pencil Pro would replace the second-generation Apple Pencil, released in 2018. Other models available include the Apple Pencil with USB-C, and the original Apple Pencil from 2015, which is expected to be discontinued once Apple stops selling the ninth-generation iPad with a Lightning connector.

Other products expected to be announced at the Apple Event include two new iPad Pro models with Apple’s next-generation M4 chip, a larger 12.9-inch iPad Air to go along with an updated 10.9-inch model, and a redesigned Magic Keyboard for iPads.Tag: Apple PencilRelated Forum: iPad Accessories
