Apple Pencil will not select a bar in a clustered bar chart on an iPad

We have a visualization with a clustered bar chart. We are viewing on an iPad using an Apple Pencil for navigation. The Apple Pencil will put the clustered bar chart in focus and scroll the chart up and down, but when attempting to select and filter on one of the bars with the Apple Pencil, it will not recognize the "click". We tried multiple times and reverted to touching the bar with a finger and were successful in selecting the desired bar (with a finger touch) and therein filtering the other visuals. Has anyone experienced the same issue? Any suggestions?

As a side note, the Apple Pencil works well navigating other visuals that we have in the model.

Thank you for the feedback. We have elected to use a different stylus that works effectively. We will look forward to have this issue addressed in a future update for Power BI on an iPad. Thanks again.

A similar phenomenon happens on the scatter plot.  Apple Pencil doesn’t register a click.  Looking forward to future updates on the iOS mobile app!
