    Default Apple Pencil connect question.

    After the pencil is sleeping does it have to plugged into the iPad again to be connected?

    It seems like the only way to me.

    I've noticed this if I haven't used it in several hours. Otherwise it seems already connected.

    Yes, after not using it for several hours it will no longer work. Have to plug it into the *** of the Pro to get going again.

    I wonder if that's a setting somewhere. Reason I say that is, I just opened my iPad and Pencil today (12:30pm) after not using it since last night (9pm-ish) and the Pencil worked without me plugging it in to the iPad.

    Mine usually works. It depends on how much charge I left it with. But no connection problems ever, just sometimes I have to charge it a little before using it.

    Notice this as well. Only difference is at times I am able to go few days with it staying connected, other times it might just be five or so hours apart. Either way a quick plug in has me working again.
