The Apple Pencil could soon be used with the iPhone

The US Patent and Trademark Office has recently granted a new patent to Apple for a future Apple Pencil that could be used with an iPhone .
As you know, currently the Apple Pencil only supports the two existing iPad Pro models, since the Apple stylus requires a screen with a special system, which the screen the current iPhones does not have.
The patent, entitled "Devices and methods for manipulating user interfaces with a stylus", describes a future Apple Pencil that would support a variety of electronic devices with a touch screen and One or more sensors capable of detecting signals from a stylus.
At some points in the patent describes the use of a stylus with devices such as the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, taking advantage of the technology of mutual detection projected currently used by Apple mobile devices.
According to the patent, the future Apple Pencil could be used with other applications such as word processors, spreadsheets, games, internet browsing, image editing, email, etc. It is even possible that the Apple Pencil can be used with other devices, such as Macs with touch trackpads.
In the patent there are several references to the iPhone, and in fact, one of the drawings clearly illustrates a stylus used with a device similar to an iPhone.
Apple filed the patent in September 2015, credited to Apple engineers Jeffrey Traer Bernstein, Linda L. Dong, Mark K. Hauenstein and Julian Missig, who appear as the inventors of technology.
Of course, and as we always say in these cases, the fact that Apple has patented something does not necessarily mean that the patented technology will be used in a product but this time it may do so.
Recall that in September last year Tim Cook dropped in an interview that the Apple Pencil could be compatible with the iPhone, something that at the time led to think that perhaps the iPhone 7 would be compatible with the stylus Apple , which ultimately Was this way: it is possible that Cook referred to a future generation of the smartphone ... perhaps the iPhone 8?
