Check if the Apple Pencil is turned on
The Apple Pencil has an internal battery that charges quickly and easily with the iPad Pro. You can check the battery level at any time by opening the Notifications panel on your iPad Pro and looking for the battery widget. If the widget isn’t there, you can add it in Settings > Notifications.
When you connect the Apple Pencil to your iPad Pro, a notification appears that shows the current charge level and where find more information about Apple Pencil.
You can also see the charge level of your Apple Pencil when you look at the Today view on your iPad Pro. Just swipe down from the top of the screen to open Notification Center, then swipe left until you see Today.
If you’re using an Apple Pencil (1st generation), make sure that it’s turned on. To turn it on, unscrew the cap and remove it from the tip of your pencil, then insert a fresh AAAA battery with the positive end pointing up. Replace the cap, screw it on tightly, then wait a few seconds for your Apple Pencil to turn on.
Check if the Apple Pencil is properly connected to the iPad
There are two ways to charge your Apple Pencil: through the iPad’s Lightning connector or with the included adapter. If you’re having trouble charging your Apple Pencil, follow these steps.
First, check to see if the Apple Pencil is properly connected to the iPad. If it’s not, unplug it and plug it back in. Make sure you connect it to the side of the iPad with the Smart Connector, not the Lightning connector.
If that doesn’t work, try charging your Apple Pencil with the included adapter. Connect one end of the adapter to the Apple Pencil and plug the other end into a power outlet. You should see a green lightning bolt appears next to the battery icon on the iPad’s status bar.

Check if there is any debris or damage on the Lightning connector
If your Apple Pencil won’t charge, the first thing you should do is check the Lightning connector for any debris or damage. If the connector is clean and there is no damage, make sure that the pencil is properly inserted into the Lightning connector.
If your Apple Pencil still won’t charge, try restarting your iPad. If that doesn’t work, try resetting your Apple Pencil.
Check if there is any debris or damage on the Apple Pencil tip
If there is any debris or damage on the Apple Pencil tip, the Apple Pencil may not charge. Try cleaning the Apple Pencil tip with a dry, soft cloth. If you can’t remove the debris or if the tip is damaged, take your Apple Pencil to an Apple Retail Store or Authorized Service Provider for further assistance.
Try a different Lightning cable
If you’re having trouble charging your Apple Pencil, try these steps.
First, make sure that you’re using a genuine Apple Pencil charger and an officially licensed Lightning cable. You can use the Apple Pencil charger that came with your pencil, or a compatible charger from another Apple device, like an iPad Pro.
If you’re not sure if the cable you’re using is an official Apple cable, you can check the packaging for the “Designed by Apple in California” text. If you don’t have the original packaging, you can look for this text on the cable itself:
The second thing to check is the Lightning connector at the end of your Apple Pencil. Make sure that there’s no debris or buildup blocking the connector. If there is, you can use a soft, dry cloth to gently clean it off.

Try a different USB adapter
If you’re using a USB adapter that came with a different device, try using the adapter that came with your Apple Pencil. If you don’t have that adapter, use another Apple USB power adapter that’s rated 2.4 amps or higher and made for use in your country or region. You can also try plugging your Lightning to USB Cable into a USB 2 hub. Then plug the hub into one of your computer’s USB ports.
