Apple has unveiled a new 9.7-inch iPad with Apple Pencil support at its education event. Prior to today, Apple Pencil support has been limited to Pro models of the iPad.
Apple previously offered a 9.7-inch version of the original iPad Pro which worked with Apple Pencil, but it was replaced a year and a half later with the 10.5-inch model. The new education-focused model brings support without the Pro label (and price).
Apple is also releasing new versions of its iWork suite with new Pencil features including a smart annotation feature in beta, and Pages will now support iBooks creation.
