Apple Pencil (2nd Generation)

  • Overview

    The new Apple Pencil delivers pixel-perfect precision and industry-leading low latency, making it great for drawing, sketching, colouring, taking notes, marking up emails and more. And it’s as easy and natural to use as a pencil.

    The new Apple Pencil also features an intuitive touch surface that supports double-tapping. So now you can change tools without setting it down.

      The verdict is still out

      I will preface this by saying my opinion may change once I can get some questions answered! My first impression is that I love the Apple Pencil 2, easy to pair I will preface this by saying my opinion may change once I can get some questions answered! My first impression is that I love the Apple Pencil 2, easy to pair, goes into low power mode when not in use. It is the best stylus I have ever used for creating artwork digitally (I actually like it more than my Wacom tablet!). I do have some questions I need to get answered before I can give it the 5 stars I want to give it. Can this device be be charged any other way besides sticking it to the iPad? OR has anyone made an iPad case/cover that will actually protect the edges, the most vulnerable part of the iPad while allowing for the Pencil to charge? The Apple Smart Folio seems to expose the edges of the iPad which is great for charging the pencil, but one accidental drop and I fear that the lovely screen will crack. I would really prefer a TPR back cover case that protects the edges but would have a section that would allow for the pencil to charge. I certainly do not want a case that has to be removed to charge the pencil. The only other change I would have liked is to have the pencil flat on 6 sides like a typical pencil.

      This is the BEST stylus I have ever used. I came to the event in October 2018 and got my hands on it. Thanks

      Good but big flaws

      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 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

      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% 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!

      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 + Cellula 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.
