Write Text With Your Apple Pencil Using Scribble On iPadOS 14

With iPadOS 14 you can use an Apple Pencil to write anywhere you type. The writing will be converted to text in most cases so you can use your Apple Pencil as an alternative to the keyboard.

    I have a first generation iPad Pro and a first generation Apple pencil. Do they work together?
    How do I get the keyboard?

    Alex: It should, yes. Try it. The current keyboards are meant for newer iPads. But you can get any Bluetooth keyboard and it should work. Some third-parties made them for the iPad Pro 1st gen sizes.

    I have iPadOS 14 and an Apple Pencil. When I go into mail, new message I don’t see the bar at the bottom of the page. I am not getting into the scribble mode.

    yes. I tried writing with the pencil. I could get the call up the drawing pallet, but not the scribble pallet you showed.

    Sorry. Actually, I had not updated to iOS 14.0.1. I thought I had the latest, but didn’t.
