This is why the new iPad doesn’t support Apple Pencil 2

iFixit disassembled the recently released 10th generation iPad and showed in a video why the device does not support the 2nd generation Apple Pencil.

Under the screen of the new Apple tablet is a dual-cell 7606 mAh battery, a motherboard with an A14 Bionic chip, and other components.

The teardown also reveals that the components for the 10th generation iPad’s horizontal front-facing camera take up space where the 2nd generation Apple Pencil’s wireless charging coil should be. As a result, the device is only compatible with the 1st generation Apple Pencil.

iFixit also confirmed that the new iPad has special tabs under the battery, like the iPad Air 5 and iPad mini 6, making battery replacement easier. By comparison, older tablets have batteries glued to the body.

In addition, the USB-C port on the iPad 10 is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to repair.

Now it remains to wait for the assessment of the overall maintainability of the tablet from iFixit.
