Unlike the Microsoft Surface Pen, which is powered by an AAAA battery, the Apple Pencil has a non-removable, rechargeable 0.329 Wh Li-ion battery. Despite the fact that the capacity of this small battery is twenty times less than the capacity of the battery iPhone 6s, it lasts long enough. Plus, just connect your Pencil to iPad Pro via Lightning for just 15 seconds for another 30 minutes of pencil work.
However, this (extremely handy and useful) accessory lacks a battery indicator so that you can quickly estimate how long the pencil can last. This tutorial will show you how to enable the battery indicator Apple Pencil in the Notification Center iPad Pro.
How to check the battery charge Apple Pencil
To do this, you need to enable the Battery widget that appeared in iOS 9.
Step 1: Enter the Action Center by swiping down from the top of the screen iPad Pro.
Step 2: Scroll down and click the Edit button.
Step 3: A list of all widgets available on your device will appear. Click the plus next to the Batteries widget to enable it. Also here you can reorder the display of widgets.
Step 4: Click Finish.
Now you can easily check the remaining battery power of your Pencil at any time in the Action Center. Just open Center and the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil charge indicators will be displayed in the Widgets tab.
In exactly the same way, you can teach the Notification Center to show the charge Apple Watch and other Bluetooth accessories paired with your device.
