Hello santamaker.

Welcome to Apple Support Communities.

If I'm understanding correctly, you are having some trouble pairing your Apple Pencil with the iPad Pro. I will be glad to help you get this paired.

Check out the steps below to see if it helps, from our article: Use Apple Pencil with iPad Pro

If your Apple Pencil won't pair with your iPad Pro

  1. Restart your iPad Pro, then try to pair again.
  2. Go to Settings > Bluetooth and make sure that Bluetooth is turned on.
  3. On the same screen, look under My Devices for your Apple Pencil. If you see it, tap User uploaded file. Then tap Forget this Device.

  4. Plug your Apple Pencil into your iPad Pro and tap the Pair button when it appears after a few seconds.
  5. If you don't see the Pair button, wait for one minute while your Apple Pencil charges. Then unplug your Apple Pencil, plug it back in, and wait until you see the Pair button.
  6. If you still don’t see the Pair button, contact Apple Support.
