Check if your apple pencil is turned on
If your apple pencil is not charging, the first thing you should do is check if it is turned on. To do this, unscrew the cap at the top of the apple pencil, and look for the tiny button next to the charging port. If this button is depressed, then your apple pencil is turned on.
Check if the apple pencil is properly inserted into the charging port
When your Apple Pencil won’t charge, the first thing you should do is make sure that it’s properly inserted into the charging port. If the pencil isn’t all the way in, it won’t charge. If you’re not sure if it’s properly inserted, remove it and re-insert it to double check.
Check if you are using the right charger for your apple pencil
When you use the Apple Pencil, make sure that you are using the right charger for your apple pencil. If you are not using the right charger, it may not charge properly or at all. The Apple Pencil comes with a lightning connector and ausb-c connector. You can use either one to charge your pencil, but you need to make sure that you are using the correct charger for your apple pencil.
Check the condition of the charging port
First, make sure that the charging port on your Apple Pencil is clear of any debris. If you see lint or other particles in the port, use a small, stiff brush to clean it out.
If that doesn’t work, try resetting your Apple Pencil. To do this, remove the cap and plug the Lightning connector into your iPad for 15 seconds, then unplug it and replug it into the iPad.
Check the condition of the apple pencil tip
If the apple pencil tip is frayed, damaged, or otherwise not in good condition, it may not make contact with the iPad Pro screen correctly and may not charge. To check the condition of the tip, remove it from the apple pencil and inspect it. If necessary, lightly sand the tip with fine-grit sandpaper until it is smooth.
