Apple said in the patent application:

Touch sensors can be used to detect user clicks, double-clicks, triple-clicks, or other percussion gestures. For example, when the user puts the finger in the grip area, the stylus can detect the electrostatic capacitance generated in the touch sensor. the user can then lift the finger, while the stylus can detect changes in the electrostatic capacitance or capacitance generated in the touch sensor. ..

Input sequence within the span the stylus can interpret a period of time as a user's tap gesture... One or more taps can be interpreted as user input to change the characteristics of the marker (e.g. color, size, width, thickness, shape, etc.) by further examples, one or more taps can be interpreted as user input for performing functions on an external device, e.g Copy function, paste function, undo function and / or redo function.

The stylus can use a capacitive sensor to prevent accidental tapping and can also read "rolling gestures.". This will refer to the rolling movement of the user's fingers or the stylus shell on the circumference of the stylus. In addition, the patent also states that Apple pencil will be equipped with fingerprint sensor, which can be used to verify Apple pay, can be purchased in the app store, or can directly open the development bank or financial application through pencil.
