Apple's new 10.9-inch iPad comes with USB-C instead of Lightning, and that means users can't charge or pair that Apple Pencil without an adapter.
Instead, it is limited to the original, or first-generation Apple Pencil, which Apple continues to sell four years after introducing its successor. Apple is now making a change to the original Apple Pencil, but only in that new ones will be sold with a USB-C to Apple Pencil adapter.
"A new USB-C to Apple Pencil Adapter is required for pairing and charging and is included in the box with a new version of Apple Pencil (1st generation)," says Apple. "For existing owners of Apple Pencil (1st generation), the USB-C to Apple Pencil Adapter is sold separately."
The Apple Pencil first generation still costs $99. The USB-C to Apple Pencil adapter costs $9.
