The latest iPad 10 is only compatible first generation Apple Pencil. Thus, a few Apple Stores have stopped selling Apple Pencil (1st generation) until the stock of USB-C adapters improves.

Launched in 2015, the Apple Pencil (1st generation) is compatible with the new iPad 10 but it features a Lightning port. Therefore, to charge it with the new entry-level tablet, users need a USB-C Adapter.

Apple is selling Apple Pencil (1st generation) with the USB-C Adapter in the box for new users, and also selling USB-C Adapter separately for users who already own the digital pencil.

Previously, it was reported that the $9 USB-C adapter was facing up to a one-month delay in shipping within 5 days of launch. And it is likely that its stock has not improved.
