Pencil trouble

I’m having a problem with Apple Pencil. It lags and then I have to stop itself to clean up the rest of the way they meet the writing. It says to hold it down for .1 seconds. And to free back a notice telling me to try to use it again. It makes a mess of the entry. I can get very little entered.

Can you help?

Can you explain more about what iPad and Pencil versions you are using?
It might help to open Settings, and “forget” the pencil in the Bluetooth settings, then re-pair the pencil with the iPad.


I’m using the new iPad Air3 which uses the Apple Pencil 1.


It was already unconnected so I connected it. If it lags, I’ll try disconnecting it and re-pairing it.

Thank you
