According toΒ Patently Apple, the U.S tech giant has filed a new patent. This patent reveals a slot at the hinge of the iPad Magic Keyboard for holding the Apple Pencil. In the current scenario, the Apple Pencil can only be attached to the top of the iPad magnetically. This puts it at risk of falling off since the magnetic force isn’t strong.

But with the new patent, the iPad Pro-Magic Keyboard will have a slot in which the Pencil can easily slide in. The patent is called ‘Accessories for a portable electronic device.’ Though it doesn’t say much in its description, it has included photos of how the Pencil slides into the hinge. As of now, the Magic Keyboard uses a USB-Type C port. This means that the Pencil would only be able to slide down from one side of the keyboard.

Here is a summarized version of the patent filing:

The accessory device can be arranged between a closed configuration and a configuration of a stand that supports the portable electronic device at a viewing angle.
