What’s in the Box

Apple Pencil, Lightning adapter and extra tip

  • Overview

    Apple Pencil expands the power of iPad Pro and opens up new creative possibilities. It’s sensitive to pressure and tilt so you can easily vary line weight, create subtle shading, and produce a wide range of artistic effects — just like with a conventional pencil, but with pixel-perfect precision.

      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.

      It's sketchy...but don't DARE drop it.

      I love the way the pencil works as a drawing tool and it's as good if not better than any Wacom product (5 stars for that). When you bear down it can get confus I love the way the pencil works as a drawing tool and it's as good if not better than any Wacom product (5 stars for that). When you bear down it can get confused and flash it's edge shading tool. I got mine in 3 weeks. The cylindrical industrial design promotes breakage as every other #2 pencil in the world is faceted so as not to roll off a desk. No eraser as on Wacom and 53. Lots of changing tools. Mine fell from my pants pocket to the ground (3 feet) and the tip bent and it would not draw properly. I changed the tip and now it works better, but still has sensing issues. Dropping a computer is a rarity, but dropping a pencil is pretty commonplace. Seems too precious for long term everyday use. How can you reinvent a 99 cent pencil into a $99. pencil and have it be this fragile? (2 star deduction.) It falls nose down with all the electronics inside so I was toast. It's also about an inch longer than the average pen so it seems awkward in a shirt pocket, thus flipping out of my side pant pocket. Be careful not to lose the chicklet sized adapter that allows it it be charged by cord. No means of attaching it to the case. Samsung buried theirs in the device. When it works I love it and the software can only get better. Great pencil, just don't drop it..

      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.

      Battery fails

      Purchased when it first came out and worked ok but very few apps to use it with so stopped using it. With ios11 apple stated there are more uses for the pen Purchased when it first came out and worked ok but very few apps to use it with so stopped using it. With ios11 apple stated there are more uses for the pen so I went to use it again and it will not charge because it hasn’t been used. The small battery dies if it’s not in constant use. This is not stated in the enclosed documentation with the pen. If you don’t use it weekly it will become an expensive ornament. Apple support was the worst I’ve ever experienced.

      Perfect but fragile drawing tool

      I purchased the Apple Pencil exactly three weeks ago. Today I tried to use it only to find out it completely died. I tried everything, but it wouldn’t show up I purchased the Apple Pencil exactly three weeks ago. Today I tried to use it only to find out it completely died. I tried everything, but it wouldn’t show up under the Bluetooth section, and it won’t pair with the iPad. It just really disappointing, it works great while it’s still functioning. I’d expect more durability and lifespan for such price.

      APPLE PENCIL stopped working just over a year

      This stylus is one of the best for iPAD pro. However, just over a year of purchase this PENCIL stopped working and will NOT pair with my iPAD Pro. I had NOT dro This stylus is one of the best for iPAD pro. However, just over a year of purchase this PENCIL stopped working and will NOT pair with my iPAD Pro. I had NOT dropped the PENCIL or abused it. When I took this to an authorised APPLE customer care they tested it for 5 mins and mentioned that this PENCIL cannot be repaired and has to be replaced. This, to me, is unacceptable. I thought I paid for a premium product that will last for sometime but did NOT expect the product to stop working and that too just over a year (i.e. warranty period).
