Update: 9to5Mac is now reporting that Apple is preparing for a November 11 launch for the iPad Pro, both in retail stores and online.

Original story: According to a new report, Apple has asked its AppleCare staff to complete its mandatory iPad Pro training prior to November 6, showing that a early-November release may be on track. In addition, new details have surfaced about how you will charge your Apple Pencil, as it appears Apple will be including a Lightning adapter in the box.

When it was originally announced, Apple showed the Pencil charging through the iPad Pro, and that raised some concerns from perspective users. From 9to5Mac

Some users have wondered if this would open up the tip of the stylus's Lightning connector to bends and breaks, and Apple's solution will be an adapter that comes with the stylus.The adapter (pictured above) will allow users to charge the accessory with a standard USB Lightning cable. This means that users will be able to charge the Apple Pencil via a wall adapter, computer's USB port, or any other power source that can be used to charge up an iPhone or iPad.

It wouldn't be overly surprising to see Apple offer a USB to female Lightning cable to charge the Apple Pencil without having to carry around the small adapter. As always, nothing is official until we hear it directly from Apple.
