iPhone 8 Rumors And Specs: Apple Pencil, Dual Sim And Other Features Shows Up in Patents
The Apple Pencil may finally be used on iPhones.
Patently Apple spotted a patent describing an Apple Pencil that will work on an iPhone. The Apple Pencil was released on Nov. 11, 2015 but only worked on iPad Pro tablets.
The patent seems to confirm what Apple CEO Tim Cook said during an interview back in Sept. that hinted on the possible iPhone support for the Pencil.
"If you've ever seen what can be created with that pencil on an iPad or an iPhone, it's really unbelievable."
According to 9to5Mac, Apple is also working on adding more uses or widening the range of the Apple Pencil. Some of the patents were concerned with the Apple Pencil being used on apps such as Messages, Mail and Safari.
A patent involving Apple devices having dual sim capabilities seem to confirm rumors that the giant tech company is planning on penetrating China and its huge market. A report by Phone Arena mentions that the rumor has been around since before iPhone 7 was launched.
The patent in question describes a device with two separate antennas for two different sims. This technology is not new.
The iPhone 8 is expected to be a game changer as its release coincides with the smartphone line's 10th year anniversary. A number of rumors have already been floated regarding its features such as the Touch ID sensor, all-glass front, wireless charging, 3D lens camera, and curved screen. The patent saying that the Apple Pencil will now work on the iPhone is another bit of good news.
However, as with all previous patents of the company, it does not necessarily mean that a certain technology will find its way in a physical marketed device. Fans of Apple may need to wait til the iPhone 8's release before knowing if there will be a dual sim version and if the Apple Pencil will really work on the device.
