What’s in the Box

Apple Pencil, Lightning adapter and extra tip

  • Overview

    Apple Pencil expands the power of iPad Pro and iPad (6th generation) 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.

      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.

It's out of warranty now and I'm upset that I would have to pay full price to fix something that is Apple's defect. You're better off buying a non-apple stylus

      Niche product over priced Bad design

      I normally believe that Apple makes some of the best designed products. The Apple Pencil however in my opinion has taken over the lead from the Apple keyboard. I normally believe that Apple makes some of the best designed products. The Apple Pencil however in my opinion has taken over the lead from the Apple keyboard. The pencils Cap be lost very easily. There is no doubt that you will have close calls with the Cap knocked off and you have to go looking for it. In order to stop the pencil from draining battery you have to turn off the Bluetooth on your iPad which causes you to not have access to other Bluetooth devices. If you listen to your headphones the Apple Pencil will link up and start draining your battery. The most egregious design flaw is the charger. It is a rectangular piece of plastic that costs approximately $10 (thats is a super markup) is used to make the pencil draw a charge from a cable. If you’re feeling brave you can take the cap off and stick the pencil into the iPad’s charging port at the botoom. This creates a very dangerous situation as any vertical movement can cause either the charging ports to get damaged on the pencils outlet to be damaged. Here is what I recommend Go to the Apple Store and holding Apple Pencil ask the store clerk to show you how the Apple Pencil is charged on the iPad. Take note of the fact there is no magnetic mount. Too big for your pocket. Using other accessories with the Apple Pencil and Bluetooth is not going to be a good idea as you start having battery drain. If you don’t charge the Apple Pencil, runs out of battery the battery might get damaged and you will be out of luck and will have a $100 probably cost $15 to manufacture. Replacement 70 to 100 bucks. The lesson I have learned for the day is that just because a company makes one high-quality product does not imply that the rest of the products match that scale.

      Love it.

      I use it for school note taking and sketching. No problems and I have had it for about 8 months.There are sleeves and accessories for it on amazon so there real I use it for school note taking and sketching. No problems and I have had it for about 8 months.There are sleeves and accessories for it on amazon so there really was no unsolvable problem such as charging, cases, sleeves, etc. Precision is amazing and there is a wide variety of apps specifically designed to be used with it. The nibs start to wear in about 3 months of constant use if you're not a barbarian. Replaced my school notebooks and pens. Absolutely love how convenient it is. I just keep it in a small pencil pouch I got from a Tokyo Discount next to my house.
