You will find below a list of compatible devices on iOS devices.

Note that all compatible devices have an active digitizer touchscreen and an associated active pen. 

Capacitive pens are NOT compatible with Nebo. Make sure your pen is not a capacitive one.

How to identify your iPad model and see if it supports an active pen (Apple Article):

Note: Since the release of Nebo 2.3 a keyboard feature is available which enables typing on all iPad models using a virtual or physical keyboard (like the Smart Keyboard Folio or Bluetooth keyboards). The keyboard remains available on all subsequent updates. On iPad models without Apple Pencil like pens, previous versions of Nebo offer a Read-only experience.

Nebo is an application powered by Interactive Ink, MyScript’s handwriting recognition technology. Interactive ink lets you handwrite and edit text, diagrams, and equations on a touchscreen and converts them into digital content.
