How do I turn on my Apple Pencil 1?

Answered by Frank Schwing

To turn on your Apple Pencil (1st generation), follow these steps:

1. Remove the cap: Start by removing the cap from the top of your Apple Pencil. This will reveal the Lightning connector, which is used for charging and pairing.

2. Plug into Lightning connector: Next, plug the Lightning connector of your Apple Pencil into the Lightning port on your iPad. The Lightning port is the small rectangular connector located on the bottom edge of your iPad.

3. Pairing process: Once you have connected your Apple Pencil to your iPad, the Pair button will appear on the screen. This usually happens automatically, but if it doesn’t, you can manually initiate the pairing process by tapping the Pair button.

4. Tap the Pair button: Tap the Pair button when it appears on your iPad’s screen. This will initiate the pairing process between your Apple Pencil and your iPad.

5. Pairing complete: Once the pairing process is complete, your Apple Pencil will be ready to use. You can start using it for various tasks such as drawing, writing, or navigating your iPad’s interface.

It’s important to note that once you have paired your Apple Pencil with your iPad, it will stay paired until you restart your iPad, turn on Airplane Mode, or pair it with another iPad. This means that you don’t have to go through the pairing process every time you want to use your Apple Pencil.

I hope this helps! If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.
