    Best stylist ever

    • Written by Sylvester R from New York

    From the easy magnetic connection process to the extremely low latency to the pressure sensor to the double tap feature to the genius everything else this is the absolute best stylist I have ever encountered.

    If there was an alternative, i would bury this thing

    • Written by Leslie Z from Toronto

    No extra tips/nibs in the box
    $25CAD for 4 extra's?
    No connectivity when writing
    Difficulty pairing
    its such a disappointing shame this is the only option we get.

    Just the tip

    • Written by Joanna K from Canley Vale

    Love the pen. I use it to illustrate a few hours a day - fucntioning well so far.
    Was just waiting for the moment i'd lose the pen tip as per previous reviews. Tried my best to be careful and check every now and then the tip was screwed on securely.

    My iPad slid off the bed with the pen attached the other day, and thats where I lost the nib. Couldn't find where the darned thing skittered off to. Oh well - hopefully pen will continue to function fine once after the replacement nibs arrive. Not sure of any other damage to the pen after its' fall

    Best sketching stylus on the market

    • Written by Woolf N from Arlington

    I've used intuos and cintiq tablets (and still do) but when it comes to sketching down ideas, the apple pencil is absolutely the best. For final designs and vectoring I still go to my cintiq, but everything up until that point is on my iPad. This stylus has legitimately cut down on the turnaround time for my professional design projects.

    Magnet is weak

    • Written by TIM A from Edmond

    This pen worked great, and was completely happy with it. However, the magnet is somewhat on the weak side, as it fell off down the subway tracks. So be careful.

    Made a great product even better

    • Written by John M from North York

    I had the original Apple Pencil with my 10.5 iPad Pro. The new 2nd gen pencil has all the great features of the original and made it even better. The new charging method is a great improvement over the original. I love how the 2nd gen pencil magnetically attaches to the top of the 11” iPad Pro. It is easy to reach for and use at anytime. The double tap feature is incredibly helpful when writing notes. I highly recommend this accessory for anyone who has a 2018 iPad Pro.

    I am really loving the 2nd gen Apple Pencil

    • Written by CANDACE L. S from Sterling

    I found the original Apple Pencil unwieldy to use, to keep charged, and to keep track of. This second generation product works so much better for me that I find myself using it daily, and not just with drawing apps. It’s easy to charge and my Otterbox case keeps it right next to my iPad Pro where it’s easy to grab, fully charged. It’s a much better tool for sketching, drawing and painting.

    Awful and NOT Durable

    • Written by Sherry G from Pembroke

    We purchased an apple pencil on Sept 6, 2019. The first one sent was lost by UPS apparently. A new one was sent on Sept 23 and finally arrived on Sept. 27. We had it for less than two weeks and one bump and it broke. We took it to the Apple store and were told to buy a new one - no warranty or compensation by Apple. Not worth the money and does not hold up to regular use.

    Scratched my iPad Pro

    • Written by Sandra A from Hesperia

    Loved the pencil until I saw the damage it caused my iPad Pro (side where it charges/attaches). Apple refused to exchange the damaged pencil stating it was “cosmetic”. If you buy the pencil I would recommend buying a silicone cover for it to prevent it from scratching the side of your iPad where it attaches (magnetically). I’m extremely disappointed as they refused to replace the pencil, ive ordered the silicone case so it doesn’t continue to wreck my new iPad Pro. I have many Apple products and the first issue I have they weren’t willing to help, extremely disappointed.

    Great Tool! Not as bad as people say!

    • Written by Eddie A from Las Vegas

    Okay, I’ve had the Apple Pencil for about a month now. I almost didn’t buy it because I read negative reviews about its durability and the magnet. People are clearly careless. You need to learn how to attach the pencil to the iPad. It is easy to use. I love taking notes on it and using it to learn Japanese writing. Don’t lose it. If you attach it right it will not fall. People are too careless and irresponsible, imho.

    Fragmenting the portfolio

    • Written by Peter C from Heath and Reach

    This pencil is great! I love the new features and everything. But it's only compatible with the 2018 iPad Pro model and cant be used for the others... while these tablets also not compatible with your previous pencil. Great? (PS the new apple pencil flat surface makes a better grip, hold and overall use feeling. Add another surface at the end of the pencil eraser as default. It would skyrocket UX. Make it compatible with all of your tablets capable to use a pencil. Even if some function only available on the Pro I don't have that stupid feeling pro only good with the 2nd pen)

    Not compelled

    • Written by Jeremy Q from Brixton

    There is physical friction between pen and paper that a plastic nib against glass does not currently replicate.
    Like the difference you may see with your handwriting between using a nib and a ballpoint, my sketches and writing look better with a pencil on paper.
    I don’t use this product as much as I thought I would do. So far I have not found any software so compelling that it overcomes the deficiencies of the device.

    Constantly causes accidental double tap

    • Written by Dat N from Mesa

    The main differentiator with this pencil is supposed to be the double tap function, but it is not delivering. It actually causes more frustration when I turn the double tap function on, because it constantly register false double tapping which causes me to accidentally erase or undo my work. Please fix this. Very inconvenient to use and disappointing user experience.

    Love it but scratched glass

    • Written by Victoria B from Weston

    I would be leaving a similar review in the iPad Pro 11 page if I could (I can’t find the review page for it). However, either the pencil scratched the ipad’s glass or my fingernail scratched the glass.......regardless of which actually caused the scratch, the glass is THIN AND POOR QUALITY if it can be that easily scratched!!!! I’m so mad. My iPad is always kept in its safe case that closes so no outside forces touch the glass. Ridiculous that each year th products become weaker and weaker.
    If it wasn’t for the flimsy glass that I would be giving the pencil a 4 star review. But, as is, you cannot even touch the iPad screen without fearing it will scratch.

    Too easy to lose and no way to track

    • Written by Jill H from Toronto

    I’m about to buy my 3rd pencil this year because they keep falling off of the iPad magnet. I’m an artist and i love the pencil itself but am so mad that there’s no way to track the thing. At a bare minimum, let me see when it was last connected to my iPad. This would be so helpfull and I’m sure it shouldn’t be hard to implement?

    The 1st Pencil was great,the 2nd is even better!

    • Written by Luca Lorenzo B from milano

    I upgraded my old 1st gen Pencil when I bought the 3rd gen iPad Pro, and I really am a happy customer.
    under iPadOS the lag is actually reduced to zero and it feels 90% like a real pencil. just perfect to sketch with.
    the only thing I complain about is that you can’t swipe back to the home screen with it, and still have to use ur finger.

    Ugh. So frustrating

    • Written by Elisa M from Fresno

    Love the feel. But that’s it. Falls off the magnet with light touch. Tip unrecognizable and now doesn’t works. Sooo not an apple thing to do. Fix it. Might as well come with extra tips if you’re going to compromise on quality.

    People do not understand. Amazing product

    • Written by andrew B from Porter Ranch

    Ok so i don’t know if people know that the magnet is suppose to go into the iPad Pro. Not the fridge as I have seen some 1 star reviews say. This is an amazing product. Works way better. Goes so perfectly with my iPad Pro. You should get the iPad Pro that had a magnet inside of the iPad. Not stick it onto your wall or fridge (some walls have magnets in them). It is also has a great build and is very strong. 100/100 would recommend this.
