Check if your Apple Pencil is turned on
If your Apple Pencil won’t charge, the first thing you should do is check to see if it’s turned on. To do this, simply unscrew the cap at the top of the pencil and look for a small switch. If the switch is in the “on” position, then your pencil is turned on and you can proceed to the next troubleshooting step. If the switch is in the “off” position, simply flip it to the “on” position and try charging your pencil again.
Check if the tip of your Apple Pencil is retracted
If the tip of your Apple Pencil isn’t retracted, the pen won’t charge. To check, unscrew the cap and look at the tip. If it’s extended, twist it clockwise until it clicks back into place.
Check if there’s anything blocking the Lightning connector
If your Apple Pencil won’t charge, the first thing you should do is check if there’s anything blocking the Lightning connector. If there is, then simply remove it and try charging again.
If that doesn’t work, then try resetting your Apple Pencil. To do this, simply remove the cap on the back of the pencil, and then insert and remove the Lightning connector from the pencil three times in quick succession. After that, try charging your Apple Pencil again.
If you’re still having trouble, then you may need contact apple support for further assistance.
Check your Apple Pencil’s batteries
Is your Apple Pencil not charging? There are a few things you can try to get it working again.
First, check the batteries. If they’re old, try replacing them. Apple Pencil uses standard AAAA batteries, so you should be able find replacements at any store that sells batteries.
If the batteries are new or you just replaced them, then there might be an issue with the charging port. Make sure that the port is clean and free of any debris. If it looks dirty, you can try cleaning it with a dry cotton swab.
If the charging port is clean and clear, then the issue may be with the Apple Pencil itself. Try resetting it by removing the battery cap and holding down the button for three seconds. For more information on resetting your Apple Pencil, see this support article from Apple.
If none of these solutions work, then you may need contact apple support for further assistance.
