On April 20, Apple will hold a spring presentation, during which they will present an updated Apple Pencil stylus of the 3rd generation. And a few days before the announcement, he showed up on a Twitter video.
What was shown?
The author of the account claims to have received information from the Apple supply chain. And indeed, the stylus shown in the video is consistent with previous leaks. First of all, it has a glossy finish, like the first generation of the pen. By the way, Apple still sells the first-generation Apple Pencil for the iPad mini and the 9.7-inch entry-level iPad.
Along with the 2018 iPad Pro, the second-generation Apple Pencil debuted with a matte design and the ability to magnetically attach to the side of the iPad Pro for pairing and charging. The Apple Pencil 3 seems to have a flat edge too, allowing you to magnetically attach it to the iPad Air and iPad Pro for charging.

Thus, the new stylus combines elements of the two previous models. There may also be internal changes, such as new features, gestures, or higher precision. In any case, we will know the final characteristics the day after tomorrow.
