Future Apple Pencil could detect the color and texture of any surface it touches


A future Apple Pencil could be capable of measuring the color and texture of any surface that it touches if a new patent is any indication.

The patent, which was published by the US Patent & Trademark Office at the very end of 2022 and spotted by Patently Apple (opens in new tab), allows for an Apple Pencil with built-in optical sensors that would be able to measure any surface that it comes into contact with, perhaps then allowing an iPad app to replicate it on-screen.
