Tim Cook all but confirmed new Apple Pencil is on the way

Tim Cook all but confirmed new Apple Pencil is on the way

Apple is seemingly set to unveil Apple Pencil 3 at a May 7 event dubbed 'Let Loose'.

Tim Cook's tech giant has been rumoured to be working on a new pencil for the iPad, and now it looks as they it will be showcased during the digital event at 3pm.

The CEO teased on X: "Pencil us in for May 7! #AppleEvent."

As well as a new Pencil, a new OLED iPad Pro series, a 12.9-inch iPad Air, and a new Magic Keyboard are said to be part of the new product lineup.

Meanwhile, Apple recently tightened iMessage's security to prevent future quantum computing hacking.

The PQ3 protocol is a brand new defence algorithm built by the tech giant to keep sensitive and critical data protected.

Apple wrote in a blog post: “More than simply replacing an existing algorithm with a new one, we rebuilt the iMessage cryptographic protocol from the ground up.

“It will fully replace the existing protocol within all supported conversations this year.”

It works by generating encryption keys for an iMessage text, which is sent to Apple's servers, where a fresh key is made so that locks hackers out.

This is Apple's response to what is being dubbed "Q-Day", "The day quantum computers can render all current encryption methods meaningless", as per PC Mag's definition.
