Apple's 2nd-gen Pencil could stop you from unlocking your auto

AppleInsider speculates that the key fobs in question are 'smart keys.' These transponders unlock vehicle doors when owners approach-they don't even have to be removed from a pocket-but the signals they generate are more susceptible to electromagnetic interference. There's nearly 99.9% chance that you won't be carrying an iPad attached to the Pencil while unlocking your device, but it sure has been confirmed in the Apple Pencil support document, which recently got updated.

The 11-inch iPad Pro is available in silver and space gray with either WiFi and cellular or just Wifi capabilities.

The iPad Pro is also compatible with Apple Pencil, making it a great tool for drawing and designing. However, it also says that you won't face any difficulties if the Pencil is charged.

Apple recently updated its Apple Pencil support document to include a note for a freaky interference that can be caused by a key fob to your new iPad Pro and 2nd gen Apple Pencil.

If you're charging your Apple Pencil (2nd generation) with your iPad Pro and your car's keyless entry device (key fob) is nearby, signal interference might prevent you from unlocking your auto with your key fob. When Apple Pencil is finished charging, any resulting signal interference will cease. Select cellular iPad Pro devices are discounted, like $30 off the 64GB model and $39 off the 256GB version. The good news is the iPads are available in both Silver and Space Gray, so make sure to check the other color option if one is no longer available.
