Using the iPad Pro Left-Handed

The iPad Pro introduces a new magnet that holds the new Apple Pencil to one of the sides of the tablet. In the portrait orientation, the Apple Pencil goes on the right side. However, if you're part of the 10% of the population who are left-handed, like myself, you'd obviously prefer it on the left side. But there's no magnet on the left side. Apple did design an interesting solution to this. They advertise the new iPad Pro to work in any orientation you prefer. This means, functions like Face ID will work no matter which orientation its in. And because of the even design all around, using the iPad Pro upside down won't look too different than normal portrait mode. Now, you can have the Apple Pencil attach to the left side of the iPad. You can even flip it so that the tip of the Pencil is pointed towards you. Whether fully intentional or not, Apple's new design choice made this iPad work for both dominant hands.
