what would you do with the pencil when not using it, as its an add on it wont have a special slot like the note series of handsets. you would either loose it or think, nah cant be bothered with it today. expensive waste of time.

Doubt it. Screen is still too small to use for pencil use. Apple already has ipad and ipad mini for that

could this mean the iPhone 11 will come with ProMotion?

If this is true, i suppose it will support the 1st gen pencil which means the upcoming iphones will still have lightning? I personally want an iphone that will support a pencil but if this means sticking with lightning then no thanks

This same analyst said the same thing last year. And the year before that. I love my Citibank Card but damn, their analysts are so way off even while predicting other market trends that it’s kinda embarrassing. Just take this “prediction” with a huuuuuge bag of salt to go along.

iPhone XS "sequel", iPhone XS Max "successor", and iPhone XR "descendant", nice touch.

I think it's going to be pretty interesting, I used Apple Pencil on iPad for drawing in Procreate and truly, it's a great experience. I always wondered how it feels to write on the iPhone since, well, the size doesn't show any signs of decreasing, and probably good for taking (small) written notes virtually anywhere.

Or maybe for drawing, that works too. I'll be glad if Apple actually does this, doubling as a move to empty Apple Pencil 1st gen's inventory, too.

And to chalk one up for Citi Analysts, so it's not always Kuo's analyses that makes the news.

I have seen reviews of Apple pencil and it seems a worthy purchase honestly it made Spen look like a gimmick

who needs a pencil if the screen isn't big enough like an iPad mini. Maybe Apple 11 with the fold screen feature will need to use a pencil.

'Who wants a stylus?' I know that artists will want a stylus to work with phones, for on the go projects etc. I welcome this support if implemented!
