At the prices they want us to pay...they should include it...or do a touch screen Mac...either way.

I wonder if they have addressed the issues with the Smart Keyboard? I have been researching a good iPad Keyboard and the reviews for the keyboard after a year are not pretty.

The original Apple Pencil was $99. At $129, is this new pencil really 30% faster, etc?

I like the new features, but it seems like Apple greedily takes any chance it can to raise prices.

Will the new pencil work with the old ipad pro?
No. And if you have the old one, it won't work with the new iPad Pro, either.

The Folio is pretty much a must have anyway, with the camera bump.
I just hope the case makes it flush.
