Dubious rumor claims Apple scrapped a $49 Apple Pencil for iPhone

A purported leak on Chinese social media site Weibo says Apple made a million of a new Apple Pencil, that could work with the iPhone — and scrapped all of them.

The Apple Pencil line up currently consists of $99 first generation edition, and the $129 second generation model. This new rumor, relayed from Weibo by regular leaker DuanRui, says that Apple came close to making a third model that would have cost $49.

At the Apple Event in September, Apple was originally going to release a new Apple Pencil code-named Maker, priced at about $49, with no pressure sensing and no battery needed, using a chip to power the stylus from the screen, similar to the Samsung S- Pen.1/2
