How to pair the Apple Pencil to the iPad Pro and how to check its battery life

I had purchased an Apple Pencil along with an iPad pro for Thanksgiving this year (read my iPad Pro review here).

iPad Pro Hands On Review (9.7")

My first iPad was ther 2012 iPad Mini. I used it mainly for taking notes, browsing, playing some games, etc. I loved my Mini as it had the perfect form factor, big enough to be differentiated from my iPhone but small (and light) enough to use in one hand. After that for a couple of years I did not buy an iPad frankly because other than for taking notes, I did not have a pressing need for one. And even for that I had a lot of trouble using third partly stylii with my iPad Mini due to issues like too much lag, poor quality and reliability of the stylii. Another reason was that my iPhone was getting bigger and better and was approaching my iPad Mini in size and capability, voiding my need for an iPad. So when I got a good deal for thanksgiving this year why did I buy an iPad Pro? One reason (mainly), the Apple Pencil. After a few weeks of using the iPad, here is my review in a list of likes and dislikes.
