Why is my Apple Pencil no longer working after applying the Paperlike?Updated 10 months ago

A low battery is the primary factor that can cause a paired Apple Pencil to stop working. If the charge level drops below 2%, the pencil will stop functioning, and it is necessary to charge it as soon as possible.

Charging didn't help?

During the application process, you had to turn off your iPad. This interrupts the connection between the two devices.

All you have to do now, is connecting them again:
