Apple launched the huge iPad Pro, which would have been hard to use without a stylus. To facilitate users, Apple also launched a stylus called Apple Pencil, which is not an ordinary stylus; it is smart and useful. Apple Pencil uses the non-removable battery, and also it does not have any indicator to check the battery levels.
Apple Pencil boasts a fascinating battery life, charge it for 15 seconds via iPad Pro’s lightning port, and you can have a run time of 30 minutes. As said earlier, there isn’t any battery indicator; that means you’ll know when you are out of battery only when your stylus stops working.
Well, there’s a way to check your Apple Pencil’s battery using iOS 9 on your iPad Pro. Just check the guide below for details.
How to Check Battery Level of Apple Pencil
Step #1. Swipe down from the home screen to access the Notification Center on your iPad Pro.
Step #2. Now tap on “Today” and scroll down a little and tap on “Edit.”
Step #3. From the list of available widgets, select “Batteries” by tapping on plus sign next to it. You can also reorder the widget as per your comfort.
Now you’ll be able to see how much battery your Apple Pencil has; just swipe down from home screen on iPad Pro, and you can have battery levels of both: iPad Pro and Apple Pencil.
This feature is not limited to Apple Pencil; you can also check battery levels of Apple Watch and other accessories that are paired with your iPad Pro using Bluetooth.
