TechMatte Apple Pencil Charging Adapter

(Do make sure that your case is blank sooner than you attempt to adhere the loop to it, on the other hand.)
On the other hand, if you do not want to stay one thing completely onto your case, you'll be able to check out the Quill Apple Pencil Case: It is a magnetic leather-based sleeve to your Apple Pencil that holds each your cap and Pencil securely in position for your iPad Professional by means of the ability of magnets.
