Apple’s founder late Steve Job’s stance on stylus was pretty clear. In 2007, while introducing the iPhone at the Macworld convention, San Francisco, he made fun of other smartphones that carried a stylus along with it. Jobs had famously said, “Who wants a stylus? You have to get ’em, put ’em away, you lose ’em. Yuck! Nobody wants a stylus. So let’s not use a stylus.” Apple also agreed with Job’s view even after several years since the death of the father of Apple. However, it all changed when Apple itself went on to launch the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil.
Now, it appears that the Cupertino-based tech giant is planning to take it one step further. It seems like the Apple stylus will be launching along with an iPhone soon.
At least that is what analyst Jun Zhang from Rosenblatt has recently suggested. AppleInsider has recently received a note to investors by Zhang. In the note, Zhang has mentioned three iPhones that the company is expected to unveil this year. While the LCD iPhone is codenamed “Jaguar,” apparently “Porsche” stands for the 5.8-inch OLED handset and “Rolls-Royce” is the codename of the highly anticipated 6.5-inch OLED model.
The analyst has also added that along with featuring a large display, the “Rolls-Royce” or the 6.5-inch OLED model will also support the iPen. It is not clear yet as to whether or not the “iPen” will be a new iPhone accessory or the one that is already there in the market or will support the Apple Pencil.
Earlier we have heard rumors about an iPhone supporting the Apple Pencil. As we say always, take this information with a pinch of salt as nothing has been confirmed by the company yet.
