According to an updated support document, charging the second-generation Apple Pencil, which arrived late past year, with a third-generation iPad Pro might result in signal interference that stops key fobs from unlocking cars. Apple says the iPad Pro will make you rethink what an iPad and a computer are capable of.

AppleInsider speculates that the key fobs in question are 'smart keys.' These transponders unlock auto doors when owners approach-they don't even have to be removed from a pocket-but the signals they generate are more susceptible to electromagnetic interference.

If you're charging your Apple Pencil (2nd generation) with your iPad Pro and your car's keyless entry device (key fob) is nearby, signal interference might prevent you from unlocking your vehicle with your key fob. If this happens, you can simply move your iPad Pro away from the key fob or remove your Apple Pencil from your iPad Pro and store it separately.

If you act fast, you can take home the new 11-inch iPad Pro with 64GB internal storage at a $124 discount, bringing its price down to $674.99 - its lowest to date. But that's exactly what we have today with Apple's latest crop of iPad Pro devices dropping in price at Amazon with up to $199 in savings to be had. "When Apple Pencil is finished charging, any resulting signal interference will cease", states the page. The new iPad mini and iPad Air come in 64GB and 256GB storage variants. It is also available in silver or space gray and WiFi or WiFi and cellular.
