How can we improve OneNote for iPad & iPhone?

Please support pressure sensitivity and "Pencil" for Apple Pencil

It's obvious that Apple Pencil is pressure sensitive. When I'm writing with Surface Pen, the things written look natural, but on iPad, it doesn't. This makes me want to give up using OneNote cause the inequality of the experience across the platforms.

Also, there are only pen and highlighter in the iOS version, but the Windows version has an additional pencil option. Things written in pencil are displayed as pen on iOS.

    The apple pencil registers contact before the pencil touches the screen. This causes leading and trailing lines each time the pencil is placed on the screen and picked up. The notes app, when in the "pencil" mode, appears to disregard this leading and trailing touch. It appears that the issue identified may be with the leading and trailing pressure sensitivity.

    When I test it, it does support pressure sensitivity using Apple Pencil 2, it's just..... not very sensitive.
    i.e. you have to write super hard to get some significant increase in thickness.

    If there is a settings to adjust sensitivity multiplier, that will be nice.
