Hi all,

What are all of the iPads that are compatible with the Apple Pencil?

Also, what're all of the iPad models that are compatible with nicer tablet keyboards?

The reason I ask is I don't want to spend a huge sum on an iPad, but I want to purchase one that's compatible with both the Apple Pencil and keyboards, decent screen size & decent storage.

Please let me know.

According to WikiPedia, the Apple Pencil is compatible with:
... the first and second generation iPad Pro models, the sixth-generation iPad released in 2018, and the 2019 releases of iPad Mini, iPad Air, and iPad.
Plus everything later, I expect.

Apparently all iPads are compatible with Bluetooth keyboards.
