We have received many inquiries regarding the iPen 2’s compatibility with the new iPad Air 2; therefore, we would like to keep you all up to date on our production plans and progress related to the Air 2.
We are definitely planning on making the iPen 2 compatible with the iPad Air 2 in the near future; however, because we are still in the process of developing and testing the necessary parts, the iPen 2 will not be fully compatible with the iPad Air 2 by the end of this year.
The necessary part in question is the plastic receiver case, which differs depending on the iPad model being used. As shown in the photo below, the current receiver case built for the first iPad Air does not fit the iPad Air 2 because the Air 2 is 18% thinner than the first iPad Air. For those waiting for the iPad Air 2 receiver to be released, the receiver case for the first iPad Air can be used as a temporary solution while you wait, but again, it will not fit perfectly and may affect the performance of the iPen 2.
Furthermore, there is no need to worry about having to buy a new receiver or a new iPen 2 stylus when we have completed the iPad Air 2 receiver. We will sell the receiver case alone for those who wish to purchase it separately.
We will be sure to notify everyone once we have finalized the release schedule for the Air 2 receiver.
If you have any other Air 2-related questions, please feel free to send us an e-mail and we will gladly answer any questions you might have.
[UPDATE] For all of our customers who wish to hold their iPen 2 order until the iPad Air 2 receiver is released, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
