Connecting an Old Apple Pencil with iPad pro 2020
Most of the people throughout the internet say that this is not possible to connect an old Apple pencil to a newer version of the Apple iPad. The reason is that both of the devices obey different mechanisms and as compared to the Apple pencil 2, Apple pencil one does not have a magnetic mechanism.
Apple Pencil can only be used with Apple compatible devices of old generations which get connected by joining the lightning port from the iPad to Apple pencil.
Itself Apple is very responsible for agreeing in compatibility of the Apple pencil and has also mentioned it on their website.
