The S-Pen by Samsung has been there for a long time now for the Galaxy Note Phablets, but it was just 2 years since the Stylus of Samsung works for tablets such as Galaxy Note and others. For the 1st time now, the iPad Pro has been introduced by Apple with Stylus support, that is the Apple Pencil. This accessory priced at $99 has seen some nifty features and for knowing the exact details, we have the teardown of the pencil by iFixit.
The Apple Pencil has been broken down by the iFixit guys into pieces and details have been uncovered as to what would the iPad Pro Stylus that is priced $99 include. It is found that there is 1 logic board weighing 1 gram and on that board, there is the ARM processor, having Bluetooth Keen Radio. It also has a tube-molded battery that has compatibility with 3.82 volts and 0.329 volts. This is not even 5 percent of the battery of iPhone 6S, but it can definitely provide around 12 hours of usage and complete charge for Apple Pencil.
And now let’s talk about the repair-ability score of iFixit. Generally, with all tear downs, a repair ability score is given by the team of iFixit to let you how easy repairing the gadget is. For Apple Pencil, the score is 1/10 and repairing Apple Pencil is just impossible. So it means indirectly that if any problem is faced with the Apple Pencil, a new one has to be purchased for $99.
