Patent to allow Apple Pencil to work with a Mac trackpad now granted — via 9to5Mac

A patent application geared to allowing the Apple Pencil to work with Mac trackpads has today been granted.

 

Although the patent was originally filed back in 2014, it was only published in May of this year. As we mentioned then, the version of the Apple Pencil described in the patent is significantly more sophisticated than the current model, having the additional ability to work as both an air mouse and joystick.

Our usual patent disclaimer of course applies, so there’s no guarantee that it will ever be released, but this one would seem more likely than most.
