We’ll guide you through how to connect your Apple Pencil to your iPad 10th generation.

It’s important to note that the Apple Pencil 2nd generation does not work with the iPad 10th generation because the iPad 10 doesn’t have a bar at the top which you can go and connect it to.

But at the moment, the Apple Pencil 1st generation and also the Apple Pencil USB-C does work with it, and newer versions may also, but you should go and check if it’s compatible online.

So if you’ve got the USB-C version of the Apple Pencil, all you need to do is pull the end out like this, and that’s going to reveal a USB-C plug. You just need to grab your USB-C to USB-C cable which you use to charge your iPad and then plug it in. It’s pretty simple.

But if you’ve got the 1st generation Apple Pencil like me, which has the lightning end, then this means you’re going to need an adapter. The adapter came in the box and it looks like this.

As you can see, one end has the lightning connector, so take off the cap and plug the lightning end into the Apple Pencil. Then, plug the USB-C end into the adapter, and connect the other end of the adapter to your iPad. Simply plug it in just like that.

When you plug it in, a pop-up will appear on your iPad asking if you want to pair it. Press “pair” to complete the connection. And that’s it! You have now successfully connected your Apple Pencil to your iPad.

There are some settings you can check out as well. Click on “Settings,” scroll down until you see “Apple Pencil” on the left, and tap on it. You can see its battery level and explore other settings, such as drawing with the Apple Pencil, using scribble, and pencil gestures.

Now, let’s go to the Notes app to demonstrate the Apple Pencil working. Click here, and you can choose different settings at the bottom. For example, I’ll click on this icon, and then unplug my Apple Pencil. Now, you can start drawing.
