For all the questions regarding why the Apple Pencil 1 vs. Apple Pencil 2 support for these new iPads, it's all about the cost!
These iPads were released to meet certain price points. To use the new Apple Pencil 2 would require the new "ProMotion" technology displays use in the iPad Pros, that have the higher refresh rate. That would drive cost up. The Apple Pencil 2 is also more expensive than the Apple Pencil 1.
I'm not trying to justify the difference/cost - just explaining why the Apple Pencil 1 is still used for the new devices.

Check this out: https://support.google.com/fi/answer/6330195?hl=enBest part? No monthly charge for a data-only SIM. You can have up to 9, and you only pay for data. I keep a data SIM in two different iPads, one of which never leaves my house. But it's there just in case.
I do not know if the report is correct, but Apple has a long history of proprietary connectors used to lock customers in.

I think Google is up to around $9B, Apple at $15B, Qualcomm at close to $1.5B and counting, Amazon's is still be computed, and I think Facebook is coming up too. Microsoft paid their dues a few years earlier but now back under another EU investigation as of a couple days ago.
