Apple had planned to provide Apple Pencil for the iPhone 14 series

Apple officially released the iPhone 14 series at the “Far Out” event on September 7, 2022. Four models of iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max are provided. The 5.4-inch mini model is replaced by the iPhone 14 Plus. The new lineup consists of two 6.1-inch and two 6.7-inch models.

Apple only made improvements step by step on the new models, and the relatively low-positioned iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus had fewer changes. In the eyes of many consumers, the lack of sufficient appeal is also one of the reasons for its sluggish sales. According to Wccftech reports, Apple had wanted to make more changes to the iPhone 14 series and planned to launch a new Apple Pencil priced at $49, code-named “Maker”, with an initial output of 1 million.

For unknown reasons, Apple canceled the plan at the last minute. This accessory did not meet consumers, and all products that had been produced were scrapped. In order to reduce costs, the Apple Pencil used in the iPhone series is not equipped with some sensors like the iPad series, such as pressure sensing technology or rechargeable batteries. It is rumored that this Apple Pencil is equipped with a chip that can be powered by the iPhone series and iPad series screens. The mechanism is similar to the S-Pen provided by Samsung on the Galaxy series products.

Apple originally planned to price the Apple Pencil at $49, which is cheaper than the first and second-generation Apple Pencil ($99/$129). It’s not a bad idea to make a product more attractive by introducing some extra productivity.
