But are we calling it the Apple Pen or Apple Stylus?
Apple has previously tested multiple prototypes for a stylus intended to work with the iPad, a former Apple engineer who requested to remain anonymous told Business Insider.
At least three different stylus prototypes were present at Apple about four years ago, this person said. Details on these test models were scarce, but this person described the prototypes as "different approaches to the stylus."
Emphasis mine. When it comes to Apple accessories, I hear "different approaches," and I think earbuds that fall out of your ears, TV remotes with no buttons, and wireless keyboards sans numerical keypads.
