The next-gen Apple Pencil could have a secret rotating feature

It's been almost four years since the launch of Apple Pencil 2, and the rumours keep coming for its long-awaited follow-up. While we still await a firm release date and official details for the next-gen Apple Pencil, it's not stopped leaks, rumours and speculation over what Apple is planning for its next pen stylus.

The next Apple Pencil matters because this stylus changed how a majority of artists work, and for many it helped transition from traditional to digital art. The introduction of Apple Pencil for iPad Pro enabled high-end tech usually reserved for Wacom users to come into the mainstream. The big question now is which to get, but the Apple Pencil vs Apple Pencil 2 debate could be superseded by Apple Pencil 3.
