    The 1st Pencil was great,the 2nd is even better!

    • Written by Luca Lorenzo B from milano

    I upgraded my old 1st gen Pencil when I bought the 3rd gen iPad Pro, and I really am a happy customer.
    under iPadOS the lag is actually reduced to zero and it feels 90% like a real pencil. just perfect to sketch with.
    the only thing I complain about is that you can’t swipe back to the home screen with it, and still have to use ur finger.

    Ugh. So frustrating

    • Written by Elisa M from Fresno

    Love the feel. But that’s it. Falls off the magnet with light touch. Tip unrecognizable and now doesn’t works. Sooo not an apple thing to do. Fix it. Might as well come with extra tips if you’re going to compromise on quality.

    People do not understand. Amazing product

    • Written by andrew B from Porter Ranch

    Ok so i don’t know if people know that the magnet is suppose to go into the iPad Pro. Not the fridge as I have seen some 1 star reviews say. This is an amazing product. Works way better. Goes so perfectly with my iPad Pro. You should get the iPad Pro that had a magnet inside of the iPad. Not stick it onto your wall or fridge (some walls have magnets in them). It is also has a great build and is very strong. 100/100 would recommend this.

    Do Not Recommend

    • Written by Kumiko N from Honolulu

    I got this pencil and it connected fine when I first tried it. Now skip to a couple of days later where I’ve been letting it sit on top of the iPad for a while without touching it. It won’t even connect anymore! It no longer showed on Bluetooth, and was just a terrible experience. And while I got it exchanged, it still wasn’t worth the trip to the Apple store. Getting a stylist on amazon for 1/10 the price would be better than this. First generation was a great experience though, and I was forced to upgrade when my school upgraded the iPad as well. Just do not recommend.

    Wow

    • Written by Carly P from Riverside

    I was very skeptical at first regarding the new apple pen. I am still not extremely happy with the magnet and as a result I had lost my pen. I was disheartened however, knew it was my fault. Well, I found my pen and I have to give Apple kudos. My pen was in my backyard, in the rain and wet, for two weeks. When i found it, not only does it work perfectly, it still had a 15% charge. I’m no longer skeptical.

    One drop and it was done.

    • Written by Curt C from Cincinnati

    I liked it at first, but just seemed to be a skinny stylus. I dropped it once and the tip flattened as a result- causing it to no longer work at all. I’ve only had it for about 10 days now. Wasn’t what I expected.

    Don’t do it.

    • Written by Teresa R from Citra

    I would give this 0 stars but it’s not an option. I had the first generation and loved it. I gave it to my daughter when I upgraded my iPad and had to get the second generation pencil as it’s the only option. It doesn’t consistently write. Sometimes it doesn’t write at all or it skips while writing. It’s very frustrating and it’s even more frustrating that I’m out of the return window. I would not waste my money on this if I were you.

    Annoying limitations

    • Written by Elizabeth C from Monticello

    On the iPad Pro 12.9 (3rd gen), it doesn’t work on the hidden taskbar (dock) at the bottom of the screen, to swipe up to see all open apps, or the control panel that you swipe down from the upper right side of the screen to access. I’m not sure why these features aren’t compatible with the pencil, but it’s annoying. I was hoping to not have to touch the screen, but this makes it impossible to not touch it since you have to touch to close out multiple apps or switch between them. I haven’t had any issues with the magnet or pairing.

    Magnet is terrible

    • Written by Gregory T from Washington

    It falls off incredibly easily, lending to it getting broken or lost. Fell off mine to an irretrievable location, and loss isn't covered by apple care. Huge disappointment.

    Premium price, but it’s a downgrade

    • Written by Brian N from Palo Alto

    The new apple pencil is absolutely cumbersome if you own other iPads that support Apple Pencil because Apple pencil 2 only can works with the latest iPad Pro ! Plus, for such a premium price, I expected Apple to include at least an additional tip, but guess what, no tip is included despite more expensive than previous generation and almost-the-same performance with the trouble tap feature.
    Ok, let’s talk about the issues I’m experiencing with this pencil. Within first week after purchasing it, the pressure sensitivity dropped significantly, and of course it wouldn’t be an issue as i can simply file a warranty claim, which i did. But it took Apple more than a week (around 10 days if i’m not mistaken) to just replace the stupid pencil, thus no work can be done for the ENTIRE week. Secondly, the new Apple Pencil is so fragile, I still remembered when I was testing the pressure sensitivity on my Apple Pencil, i heard a “crack” sound from the internal of it, no sure if something broke or what but the build quality is definitely awful for such a premium accessory. Not to mention you can’t even repair it, find it if misplaced. So just be extra careful if you are a new Apple Pencil user.

    Where did it go!?

    • Written by Anna L from Oakville

    Prior to purchasing the Apple Pencil, I read several reviews to see what others had to say about their experience.

    To my surprise, most reviews mentioned that the Pencil was easy to lose, and the reviewers knocked off a couple of stars on the rating. I thought was funny, considering that losing the Pencil is the fault of the consumer, and has very little to do with the performance of the actual product.

    Personally, I am not the type of person to lose my belongings. Organization is very important in my daily routine, and the Apple Pencil was definitely making that easier as it enabled me to keep all my digital drawings and work notes on one iPad, rather than maintaining separate notebooks. HOWEVER, this evening, the Apple Pencil vanished. Where did it go? I have been searching my whole house for it with no luck. There is no way to track the Apple Pencil, which is a little irritating considering it is white and slim, and is very difficult to spot from far away. Not to mention, I have also purchased a case for the Pencil on Amazon to keep it safe from loss or damage, so I have no idea where it could have gone without me noticing.

    I understand the frustration of other consumers - even if you take good care of your belongings (like myself), PLEASE take EXTRA care of the Apple Pencil as it is oddly easy to lose. Otherwise, it performs quite well and I have not had any issues with it up until today.

    Good but big flaws

    • Written by Jesseca B from toronto

    The stylus is very intuitive and great to use with procreate app, but the magnet is so so weak. For something priced as such, it should be harder for the pencil to get knocked off the iPad. Or at least make it trackable! I noticed my Apple Pencil wasn’t attached to my iPad again and I thought it just fell inside my bag again, but it’s somewhere else out there and there’s no way for me to track it when I’m at home or work. I’m afraid i’ll have to waste another 200 on one, and now I’m reluctant to if it’s going to get lost again...

    2nd pencil

    • Written by Peter H from Yorktown

    First pencil worked as a charm , then after three weeks it stopped charging , tried everything to make it charge but to no avail. Watched it trickle down to 0% . Replaced it threw the retailer for a new pencil , now after one week I have the same issue !!! Really !!!
    Apple for sure is getting cheaper and cheaper but charging premium prices !!
    Time to get the third pencil I think and debating of moving away from Apple products , I don’t mind paying premium prices for reliable products but not for something unreliable like that !

    Great but I have NOT seen it in 3 months!

    • Written by David S from Lake Haven

    Works well easy to use and charge, the magnet is not strong and 4 weeks the $199.00 Pencil went into hiding in the house (the 12.9-inch iPad Pro Wi-Fi + Cellular 1TB Silver + Apple Pencil (2nd Generation) have NEVER been outside my home) It is NOT a huge place, our bedroom, my wifes' office and my office, Lounge, breakfast and kitchen. I did not use it in the dining room or 2 guest rooms and workroom but all were searched, why there is no "find me" tone or locator" app, I will never understand. If we ever find it again and a locator app becomes available I will give it the full 5 stars, BUT I WILL NOT BUY another to replace it, without some sort of " FIND ME " addition.

    Too fragile for $129

    • Written by Michael H from Leesburg

    Fell from 3 feet onto floor and sheared the nib off damaging the threads it screwed into. After removing remnants and replacing the nib, the pencil would charge and connect but not work. Add $10 or $20 and make it out of aluminum or something...or was it being so fragile and irreparable the plan to begin with?

    Not worth the money

    • Written by Darcy D from Catlin

    Magnet definitely not strong enough. Pencil fell off within first week of owning it and there is no way to track it. Extremely disappointed! Way too expensive to be able to lose so easily with no tracking!

    Amazing until you lose it

    • Written by Jason B from Bloomington

    I had a blast with the pencil, and my daughter loved drawing with it. Unfortunately, I lost it somewhere in the house, and haven’t been able to find it for over a week because I’m sure the cat batted it around the floor into a corner or under something. There is no way to have it make a noise or search for it, so that $129 purchase is now gone only 2 weeks after I got it. Really disappointed that I can’t use it anymore.

    Overpriced trash

    • Written by Jacob C from Tacoma

    The magnets are trash like they used some cheap refrigerator magnets or something. Can barely support the pencil’s weight. And I bought directly from apple.com, so it’s not a chinese knockoff.
