Apple's awesome new iPad concept looks perfect for creatives

There's a reason why so many third party iPad cases include a designated pouch or slot for the Apple Pencil. While it's nice that the stylus magnetically snaps to the side of the device for charging, it's hardly a super-snug connection – as anyone whose pulled an iPad from their bag with the Pencil missing will attest.

But if a new patent filing is anything to go by, it seems Apple is aware of the issue. The company has filed a design for an updated Magic Keyboard complete with new viewing angles for the iPad and, finally, a retainer for the Apple Pencil. (Don't fancy waiting?
