Would you care if iPhones supported Apple's Pencil?
Reports are flying left and right that Apple's new 2018 crop, or at least the largest one of it, will include support for the Apple Pencil stylus that can now predominantly be found chillaxing on top of an iPad Pro. Granted, the largest iPhone XS Plus is expected to sport a giant 6.46" display, which would make it the iPhone with the largest screen ever. 

If it will be about the size of the stylus-laden Note 9, there might be some sense to include a stylus support for those who want it. Still, if the Note line taught us anything it's that its S-Pen usage is quite the niche undertaking, and not even Note users whip the integrated S-Pen out on a regular basis, let alone if it were some separate thingy.

It remains to be seen how the new connected S-Pen fares on the Note 9, but we'd wager to guess it will see only slightly more usage than the one on the Note 8. Granted, Apple may have thought of other applications for a phone stylus, but given how far ahead Samsung is in that regard, we'd be surprised if it seriously considers sophisticated stylus abilities for its upcoming handsets. Thus, we wanted to ask you whether you would even care about Apple Pencil support on iPhones?

Depends on what Apple does with it
