If you use one of the handwriting apps (I use the MyScript keyboard) then it's easy to add comments / make corrections. You have to be prepared to do more erasing / correcting with the handwriting recognition, but it's a smooth enough process.
Switching between pencil (held in one hand) and typing (two handed on an external keyboard is just as disruptive as using a mouse is on a laptop (which I avoid if I can as well...), so I tend to use either one or the other, not both. And I wouldn't want to use the Pencil for more than a couple of sentences by choice because it's obviously slower than typing — but it's perfectly feasible to do so and some people like writing with a pen anyway...

The OP uses the term ”interact” which could be much more than only selecting text, which is by the way very easy with the arrows and the select-text-icon in the extended built-in keyboard in iOS Scrivener.
I suspect that some of it is due to touch based text selection being clumsier and slower than mouse based selection, at least for me. I'm curious as to whether stylus based selection, particularly via the fast precise Apple Pencil (requires iPad Pro I think), may improve on this.
To be clear, in this case I'm interested in its use for interacting with text, as opposed to handwriting recognition or markup (drawing/scribbling notes atop text) or use with graphic art programs (paint, photomanipulation, etc.).
