      REALLY. Still no replacement tips!

      Yes this is the best stylus ever made, no doubt about it. But having no ability to replace a seven cents piece of plastic at the end of the stylus is more than Yes this is the best stylus ever made, no doubt about it. But having no ability to replace a seven cents piece of plastic at the end of the stylus is more than just a little frustrating. I love my new iPad Pro, but for me without the pencil it is not one stitch more useful than my three-year-old iPad. I bought the pencil, which wasn't easy as everyone will remember, but now having lost one tip, and gone through the other, I have $1400 worth of technology that is next to useless because I cannot buy a new tip, which would likely be seven cents worth of material, which I would still happily buy for Apples hugh markup... $10????... If replacement TIPS WERE ONLY AVAILABLE... This so atypical for Apple.... it just makes me sick with frustration! Please Apple..MARKET REPLACEMENT PARTS FOR THIS OR ALLOW OTHERS TO DO IT!!! I have spent too much time and money on your products to be treated so poorly.

      Could be much better

The execution, not so much. For it's precision, I like the small diameter tip on the pencil. However, it would be nice if an alternate tip with a slightly softer material was available. The tap-tap-tap on my iPad Pro screen becomes very loud at night when you are next to your sleeping spouse. For me, the body is too hard and slick to provide a comfortable secure grip, especially when combined with the natural oils exuded from your skin over time. A slightly larger diameter or a semi-hexagonal shape would be more useful, and/or the addition of a removable textured silicone sleeve for those with a weaker grip. Just because you can cram the electronics into a small tube the size of a #2 pencil doesn't mean you should do so. The round body and too-weak magnetic attraction of the single metal ring located near the cap prevents secure temporary storage on the Smart Cover - a very convenient resting space since no other means of docking/storage on the iPad is provided. If the body had squared-off sides, and/or there was a 2nd magnetic ring near the stylus tip the adhesion to the Smart Cover would be much more secure. With the variety of small parts that come with the pencil a small pocket-sized storage case for the adapter, the spare stylus tip, and the pencil cap (when charging) would have been a nice addition to the package.

      Awesome for drawing!

      If you plan on using the iPad Pro for drawing then you must get the pencil. It's amazing, well made and feels great in your hand. It's worth every penny. The Pr If you plan on using the iPad Pro for drawing then you must get the pencil. It's amazing, well made and feels great in your hand. It's worth every penny. The Pro and the pencil work beautifully together allowing you to do more then just draw. The Apple Pencil gives you the control and precision needed for detailed projects and most of the drawing apps have been updated to support the pro/pencil together. It's addicting and hard to put down!

      Works well enough but design is not friendly

      I have had the pencil just over two months in conjunction with a 9.7 iPad Pro and a survivor slim case. While the pencil works well enough I have some issues. I I have had the pencil just over two months in conjunction with a 9.7 iPad Pro and a survivor slim case. While the pencil works well enough I have some issues. I have lost the cap twice and the connector adapter once. Try being on the road working and you notice it fell off the pencil while on the case . It's gone and now the pencil is essentially useless. I have also lost the tip once , it screws on and it has not ratcheting lock on the thread so as you write it slowly loosens. Again on the road and the pen is kaput. It would be nice if I could also locate my pencil , in a way similar to a tile so when it falls off the holder I can locate it. As for now if you really need a stylus check to see if one of the cheaper ones will do. I say this as my pencil ( the second) is lost and I'm out another $129.00

      DO NOT BUY IT---worthless

      As nice as the feature of the pencil are, it is a poorly designed product and I promise you that you will lose it. it has no clip and the magnet is not strong As nice as the feature of the pencil are, it is a poorly designed product and I promise you that you will lose it. it has no clip and the magnet is not strong enough to keep it attached. there is nothing to stop it from rolling off your desk. and it is so long that it doesn't even fit properly in my suit jacket pocket, or in a pair of jeans. It is overpriced. You will Lose it, and apple care will not cover its loss. It is a joke, and another example of apple repeated ability to blow up every recent device they have invented.

I love this combo, and although it does take some time to get the feel for, I have no regrets on my purchase. It's nice to see that the replacement tips are now here. And I'm well aware that this is the 1st generation of this pencil and there will be an ongoing evolution of the product. Good job Apple.
