Apple Pencil (1st Generation)
Apple Pencil expands the power of iPad mini, iPad Air and iPad, 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 a conventional pencil, but with pixel-perfect precision.
