Introduction

If your Apple Pencil won’t connect to your iPad, make sure the Pencil is charged and near the device. If your Apple Pencil still won’t connect, try these steps:

1. Restart your iPad and Apple Pencil.
2. Make sure that Bluetooth is turned on.
3. Check for updates to your iPad and Apple Pencil.
4. Unpair and re-pair your Apple Pencil.

The Problem

There are a number of reasons why your Apple Pencil might not be connecting to your iPad. First, make sure that your Apple Pencil is charged. If it is, then you may need to restart your iPad. If that doesn’t work, try resetting your Apple Pencil. Finally, if none of those solutions work, you may need to have your iPad serviced.

The Solution

If your Apple Pencil won’t connect to your iPad, there might be a problem with the Bluetooth connection.

First, make sure that your Apple Pencil is charged. To charge your Apple Pencil, connect it to the Lightning connector on your iPad. You’ll see a green light on the connector if the charge is complete.

Next, check to see if Bluetooth is turned on. Go to Settings > Bluetooth, and make sure that Bluetooth is on.

Then, try connecting your Apple Pencil to your iPad again. Be sure to do this quickly after turning on Bluetooth—if you wait too long, your iPad might go to sleep before the connection is complete.

The Result

Apple Pencil won’t connect to your iPad? Here are a few reasons why and how to fix the problem so you can get back to using your Apple Pencil.

1. Check the Battery:
The first thing you should do if your Apple Pencil won’t connect is to check the battery. If the battery is dead, it won’t be able to connect to your iPad. To check the battery, unscrew the cap at the top of the Apple Pencil and look at the stem. If the stem is completely white, then the battery is charged and you can move on to the next step. If the stem is yellow or red, then the battery needs to be charged and you won’t be able to use your Apple Pencil until it’s charged.

2. Make Sure Bluetooth Is On:
Another reason why your Apple Pencil might not be connecting is because Bluetooth might be turned off on your iPad. To turn on Bluetooth, go to Settings -> Bluetooth and make sure that Bluetooth is switched to “On”.

3. Try Restarting Your iPad:
If your iPad is having trouble connecting to your Apple Pencil, try restarting your iPad. This can often fix minor connection issues. To restart your iPad, press and hold down the power button until “Slide to Power Off” appears on the screen. Then, slide the power off and wait a few seconds before pressing and holding down the power button again to turn your iPad back on.

4. Update Your Software:
If you’re still having trouble connecting your Apple Pencil after trying all of these things, make sure that you’re running the latest version of iOS on your iPad. To update iOS, go to Settings -> General -> Software Update and see if there’s an update available for download. If there is, update your software and try connecting your Apple Pencil again afterwards
