The Apple Pencil is great for drawing, taking notes, and doing other editing tasks on the iPad. Here is how to get yours connected.
First Generation Apple Pencil
- Remove the cap on your Apple Pencil to reveal the lightning connector.
- Plug the Apple Pencil into the bottom of your iPad via the lightning port.
- Once it is plugged in there should be a dialog box; click the button that says “Pair.”
*Note turning on Airplane mode, Restarting your iPad, or pairing your Apple Pencil with another device can all cause your Apple Pencil and iPad to become unpaired. Follow steps 1-3 again to repair.
