iFixit: Apple Pencil is a little technology marvel

I remember Ken Shirriff’s article about the Apple iPhone charger teardown. On something so seemingly unimportant, Apple showed their capabilities. Design was important, but execution was critical.

Something similar has happened with the Apple Pencil. We can laugh about Apple admitting finally that the stylus can be useful on certain scenarios. What we can’t do is ignore what the company has accomplished withe the Pencil in terms of technology integration again.

Wonderful.
