How to check the battery level of the Apple Pencil

Unlike the Microsoft Surface pen that depends on an AAAA battery that can be replaced by the user, the Apple Pencil has a non-replaceable and rechargeable 0.329 Wh Li-ion battery, which maintains the tendency of Apple not to have access to the hardware of the devices.

Although you have only one fifth of an iPhone 6s battery, you can win 30 minutes in the runtime value with only 15 seconds of fast loading through the Lightning port of the iPad Pro. The standard duration with full charge of your Apple Pencil is approximately 12 hours.

However, the accessory itself lacks a battery status indicator that will support the user with the instantaneous visibility of their status. In this tutorial, you will learn how to easily check the battery status of your Apple Pencil directly on your iPad Pro.

To check the battery status of your Apple Pencil, you will need to enable a new battery widget for iOS 9 on your iPhone or iPad Pro:

  1. Access the Notification Center sliding down from the top of the screen of your iPad Pro.
  2. Switch to the Today tab, scroll to the bottom and press the Edit button.
  3. You should now see a list of widgets available on your device. Click on the plus sign next to “Batteries” to activate the widget. You can optionally reorder the widgets on this screen, if you wish.
  4. Click on Fact to end.

Now you can easily see how much battery your Apple Pencil has, right in the notification center. Simply swipe down from the top of the screen and take a look at the widgets of your iPad Pro and your Apple Pencil.
