    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.
