Earlier this week the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office published two Apple Pencil Registered Trademarks (RTMs). One is for a figurative version of the trademark while the other represents text-only. We covered Apple's filing of the Apple Pencil figurative trademark last September 2015. Apple announced the iPad Pro along with the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard accessories on September 9, 2015 and was available to order online on November 9, 2015.
When Apple launched the iPad Pro with Apple Pencil they noted that "Apple Pencil for iPad Pro is a precision input device which makes drawing and sketching feel remarkably fluid and natural. The touch subsystem of the Multi-Touch display in iPad Pro has been redesigned to work with Apple Pencil to dramatically reduce latency and deliver incredible accuracy for activities like fine art illustration and detailed 3D design. Advanced sensors in Apple Pencil measure both pressure and tilt for a fast and fluid drawing experience."
