What’s in the Box

Apple Pencil, Lightning adapter and extra tip

  • Overview

    Apple Pencil expands the power of iPad mini, iPad Air, 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..

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.

      Fragile, plastic junk. ZERO support from Apple

Straightened it o Purchased the Apple Pencil 2 for my iPad Pro and had it for a whopping 1 week. Pencil fell on short pile carpet and the tip was skewed a bit. Straightened it out, literally a tiny bit and the thing wasn’t working. Do a little research and find they sell replacement tips follow the instructions to remove the tip and a tiny piece of metal falls out. Turns out that piece is the actual working part of the tip... It is about 2mm in diameter and plastic at the base. There is a .5mm metal filament in the center. This thing breaks easier than a real pencil lead. Apple store says “Genius Bar to see if it can be repaired”. If it’s broken, tough luck, buy new... Abandoned the pencil at the store as trash which this is... Do not be stupid and pay $120 for a “pencil” unless you want to be included in the eventual class action lawsuits for defective products and claim your $5 credit voucher at an Apple retailer... LOL... What a joke...

      A Waste

He has a master's in fine art, and he's retiring soon so I thought he might enjoy taking a stab at digital art since he already had an iPad Pro. He used it several times last year after he got it, but shortly after that his work got very busy and we had some family matters that took a lot of his time. Long story short, when he went to start using it again this summer (just over a year after purchasing it for him) he found that it wouldn't pair for more than a split second. On.. off.. on.. off. So we took it in to the local apple store, and they said they could replace it for 80 dollars, or else he could buy a new one. No. Other. Choice. That's deplorable. Three reasons: Number 1: Who makes a product with a one year lifespan? Maybe Belkin. Not Apple... I thought. Number 2: I thought Apple was supposed to be on the cutting edge of technology? Is this really the cutting edge? The device is great, but tell me you knew this would only last about a year... If not, what happened? If so, you really need to say so up front. Number 3: Customer service used to be impeccable with Apple. Now you're saying even though it lasted a year you're only willing to discount a replacement by 20% for a battery replacement? Again, you should make this known before you sell this thing. Everyone interested in this product needs to know this has roughly a year lifespan before they purchase... Sorry. I'm frustrated. But I really never expected this kind of disappointing product to come from a company I've respected for so long. Sad, Apple. Sad.

I bought the pencil May of last year and it worked perfectly fine until now. I have tried everything to get it to work again and that did nothing. Of course....it's barely past the 1 year warranty mark so it can't be replaced now which is frustrating. I was told that it would be the same cost to fix it as it did when I bought it! Ridiculous!
