In case you missed it, Apple has started transitioning away from the Lightning connector on its devices to USB-C as a response to the EU’s policy. So far, the new iPhone 15 series and AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) have tasted USB-C and now it’s the turn of the Apple Pencil. So, let’s get into the features and expected price in Nepal of the new Apple Pencil USB-C and more.
Apple Pencil USB-C Overview:
What it brings
Like every other Apple Pencil before it, this USB-C refresh also features incredible precision along with low latency and tilt sensitivity for a better scribbling experience.
But unlike the first-gen model, this guy can attach magnetically to a metal surface too. This means you can leave it at the top of iPads. Whereas it also supports “hover” gestures on M2 iPad Pros.

What it skips
Even though the Apple Pencil USB-C has some neat features, it skips pressure sensitivity. And unlike the second-gen model, you don’t get features like wireless charging, double-tap for changing between tools, and free engraving either.
USB-C and Compatibility
Okay — as the name implies — the most prominent upgrade here is the USB-C port itself. But the shift to USB-C means it’ll only work with iPads with a USB-C connection. The list goes like this:
- iPad 10.9 (2022)
- iPad Mini 6 (2021)
- iPad Air 4 (2020)
- iPad Air 5 (2022)
- iPad Pro 11 (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th generation)
- iPad Pro 12.9 (3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th generation)
Apple Pencil USB-C Price in Nepal and Availability
In the US, the Apple Pencil USB-C sells for USD 79. Or USD 69 if you are a student. As such, we expect the Apple Pencil USB-C price in Nepal to be NPR 15,500 when it launches here shortly.
