Yesterday Patently Apple posted Apple’s utility patent application that related to the second generation Apple Pencil that introduced touch surfaces and deformation feedback. It also introduced a much smarter way of charging Apple pencil using magnets sitting beneath the surface of one side of Apple Pencil that provided a flat surface. The timing of Apple’s utility patent is interesting in that today the Hong Kong Patent Office granted Apple five design patents covering various parts of Apple Pencil such as the flat surface, distal tip and distal end.
