There's really nothing you don't like about the Apple Pencil. Okay, maybe it's a little pricey, but if you're someone who creates a lot of digital art, Apple Pencil's low latency and palm rejection features are pretty impressive, but as is the case with most pens, it's not quite the same as applying pen (or pencil) to actual paper.

However, Apple seems to be studying the idea of ​​simulating the feel of writing on paper. According to Apple World Today, they discovered a patent for the Apple Pencil that suggests that Apple is investigating a potential future Apple Pencil that could give feedback that users feel like they're typing on a textured surface. like a piece of paper.

According to the description of the patent, “haptic feedback can be used to render texture sensations and to simulate drawing on a textured surface with the stylus. Therefore, the same tip that is used to provide input can receive haptic feedback during use. The user can still use the tip for input, even if haptic feedback is also applied to the tip. "

There are currently screen protectors for the iPad designed to simulate the feel of paper. The problem with such screen protectors, however, is that they have a matte surface that affects the colors of the display. There are also some who have expressed concerns that a rougher surface could wear the tip of the Apple Pencil faster.

Since it is a patent, it is unfortunately not possible to say whether Apple has plans to actually implement it. So don't get your hopes up yet.
