Why does my Apple Pencil Keep Disconnecting? Apple Pencils are some of the best stylus pens available in the market today. You can use it for many different professional functions such as drawing or writing with ease.

However, sometimes you may notice it can keep disconnecting when using. The final solution if the many troubleshooting does not work is finding a replacement.

Reasons Why Apple Pencil Keep Disconnecting?

There are a number of reasons why your Apple Pencil can start disconnecting. The most common problems include:

Low charge

If your Apple Pencil is not well-charged, it will keep disconnecting. To know how much charge is available on your pencil, just stick the charging end into your iPad Pro for Apple Pencil 1 and it will display the available charge in the top right corner.

For Apple Pencil 2, you will have to connect the Pencil to the side of your iPad on the magnetic area. The amount of charge available is displayed.

Bluetooth Connection problems

Your Apple Pencil communicates with the iPad through Bluetooth. If the iPad has faulty Bluetooth or is turned off, it will not communicate with the pencil.

The proximity between the iPad and Apple Pencil is also an important requirement. Unnecessary physical barriers will hinder seamless connectivity.

Pairing issues

If your iPad and Pencil are not paired or have been improperly paired, you will have issues. You can solve this by unpairing and pairing it back again.

To unpair, go to Settings>Bluetooth> i then forget the device. Wait a little while and reconnect your Apple Pencil and iPad.

Restart Tablet

Another refresh option involves restarting the iPad and pencil. This will refresh both the pencil and tablet systems and can get rid of configuration issues.

Pencil Nib not properly set

Another common problem is when you do not have the nib properly connected. Pencil nibs are the tip of the pencil that you use to draw or write. 

Wrongly connected Nibs will result in regular lags and disconnecting. Check to make sure it is fixed properly.
