In summary, the Apple Pen II uses a magnetic clip to attach to the iPad Pro and is charged through inductive charging. It connects to the iPad via bluetooth and its tip is conductive like a finger. The iPad has a sensing grid beneath the display, allowing the pen to determine its location.

I think the magnetic clip attaches the pencil 2 to the iPad. It uses inductive charging since there is no lightning port on the new iPads and the pencil 2.

Communcationwise, it uses bluetooth to connect to the ipad. The tip is conductive like your finger. I’m not sure exactly, how it figures out location but there must be a sensing grid beneath the display of the iPad something the iPhone doesn’t have.
