Apple will get a whole lot of patents awarded, and whereas many won’t ever see actual use, a latest award could also be one which hits the cabinets.
Patent #9,400,570 describes new capabilities for the Apple Pencil. The pencil first appeared for the iPad Professional with know-how to make writing and drawing on the glass touchscreen extra like working with pencil and paper.
The brand new patent reveals these options to be augmented, enabling the Pencil to work with out touching the touchscreen, so it may work with iPads and Macs.
The brand new know-how will allow utilizing the Pencil as a joystick and controller for manipulating objects on the display. This is able to make the Apple Pencil significantly helpful for modeling.
