Apple Pencil 3 ?
That's how I see this.
Then I got series 2 of both Pencil and Keyboard, it was a nice deal, the pencil is fantastic, and the battery is still strong after 3 years of use. The keyboard is another story, it really is an overpriced, underfeatured battery hog that does nothing to protect the ipad, I had to return it.
I hope the 3rd iteration comes with better battery management, more protection and an extra fold for better angles.
