  • The Apple pen works great with a many glass screen protectors although you want to avoid the thicker ones anything past 9H will render the apple pen less responsive and give it a gritty feel. Avoiding olephobic coatings is also reccomended. If your having difficulty using screen protectors try wi[ing the screen protector with oil removing wipes such as tea tree or glass cleaning wipes which will remove the oleophobic coating and make the apple pen more responsive and less gritty.

    Hope this helps.

  • Yes it will. I use a screen protector just to keep my iPad clean of scratches and the apple pencil still works. I guess depending on the quality of the screen protector you might feel abit weird using the apple pencil.
