Could The New iPhone Support The Apple Pencil?

Tim Cook on the Apple Pencil in an interview with NDTV:

NDTV: Has that voice never come to you? For example when you launched the pencil and you know what Steve said,’ if you see a stylus they blew it’, when you launched that pencil?

Tim Cook: Well we launched a pencil not a stylus, first of all, and there’s a big difference and the things that people are doing with this pencil, I think that Steve would have loved. He loved to help people create. And if you’ve ever seen what can be created on an iPhone or an iPad with that pencil is really unbelievable. You should really show some of these to your audience.

My hunch is this is an error on Tim’s part, but I’d love to see Apple add Pencil support with the next iPhone.
