In a stealthy move, Apple has just unleashed the first-ever firmware update for its recently launched USB-C Apple Pencil, hitting the tech scene with a version number that reads 10M5164. This unexpected development follows the Pencil’s debut just last week, leaving users intrigued about what this covert firmware drop might bring to the table.
Unlike many Apple updates, this one comes shrouded in mystery. Apple has yet to spill the beans on the contents of this enigmatic firmware, leaving users in suspense about potential features, fixes, or upgrades that might be hidden within the digital depths.
Distinguishing itself from its predecessor, the USB-C Apple Pencil shares an uncanny resemblance with the Apple Pencil 2 in design. However, it stands shorter and packs a discreet USB-C port, cleverly tucked away for charging and pairing purposes. While it lacks the wireless charging prowess found in its pricier counterparts, this nifty stylus has a trick up its sleeve – a hidden USB-C port that sets it apart in the charging game.
Curiously, Apple has maintained its tradition of secrecy by not providing release notes for Apple Pencil software releases, leaving users to embark on a voyage of discovery as they explore the possibilities that the 10M5164 firmware holds.
