Apple’s New Patents: New Patent Suggests Apple Maybe Planning To Bring Apple Pencil To One Of Its Future iPhones

Samsung just announced the Galaxy Note 8 yesterday, and it comes with a new and enhanced version of S Pen stylus. Now, it looks like Apple the Cupertino tech giant might be planning to bring the Apple Pencil to one of its future iPhones.

According to Patently Apple, The site noted that two new patent applications from Apple about Apple Pencil that actually working with a iPhone have surfaced. Obviously, for the first time, Apple’s parents listed the ‘iPhone’ as a target product for Apple Pencil.

In patent application 20170242499 titled “Noise Correction for a Stylus Touch Device,” Apple notes that the patent figure 1 shows a touch screen such as an iPhone and iPad. Although an iPhone screen maybe small for drawing, but iOS 11 allow users to use the Pencil to markup webpages, emails, screenshots and more – as well as taken handwritten notes.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of the Apple Pencil works on an iPhone before. Last year, Apple CEO Tim Cook commented that he had already tried using a Pencil on an iPad and iPhone, saying that “it’s really unbelievable.”

If you’ve ever seen what can be created with that pencil on an iPad or an iPhone, it’s really unbelievable.
It’s worth to nothing that although Apple patents a lot of things, but most of them don’t end up becoming actual consumer-ready products. However, with these pair of new patents, it’s more likely that the tech giant wants to officially bring the Apple Pencil to one of its future iPhones.
