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 feels just like writing with a real pen and paper. It makes studying so much easier for me. However, after not even a year of having it, it broke and I had to get replaced. Now, it is currently not working again and I am probably going to have to replace it AGAIN. Clearly there are a lot of things that need to be fixed with the quality and durability of this product. For a more expensive stylus I expect and demand better. I hope they can make it with a longer lifespan because it truly does work amazing when it works.

      Regret this purchase

      I purchased my first iPad this year (iPad 2018) which is one my most prized and life-changing devices I’ve purchased. I also decided to purchase the pencil alon I purchased my first iPad this year (iPad 2018) which is one my most prized and life-changing devices I’ve purchased. I also decided to purchase the pencil along with it because I felt it was practical and a eco-friend. I’m a student who became increasingly conscious of how much paper I waste as scrap to draw diagrams or solve problems. I also LOVE using it while I paint my nails or am eating finger foods. The lag is microscopically small so it’s wonderful to write with but I’m not reviewing it for its functionality. There are just far too many small details that make owning one such an annoyance that I honestly regret the purchase, even if it made iPad use easier. It’s literally just its physical design. I hate it. I haven’t been able to toss that box it came in because all the required/spare parts are loose; the charging bit (female-female) and an extra tip for the pencil itself when the original wears out, are unsecured. Not even a little pouch or clear baggy. They are very small and misplacing them is inevitable. Second, charging is such a pain because you have to remove the top (which begins to lose its magentism it seems; it comes off much easier now than it did several months ago), place the original top in a secure location while it charges since there is no storage pouch, and wait for it to charge for who-knows-how-long because there is NO way to tell. You also can NOT use it while it’s charging. I was surprised to find it’s unusable while connecting to an Apple adapter! Lastly, I have no where to store this $100 device anywhere. There is no stand-alone pencil holder for this. I either have to put it back in its packaging box or keep an eye on it. Believe me, you WILL get tired of this. I don’t want people to underestimate how cumbersome it is OUTSIDE of its functionality. The design isn’t sensible at all. Not an even a cord in which one end connects to the cap and the other to the body of the pencil itself? What about a cap that’s hinged to the pencil? Or having the charging slot within the actual device, like all other devices? I mean really who designed this? This is what Apple employees believed was worth $100, before taxes? How embarrassing. And disappointing. I don’t know if they knew about these obvious deficiencies and let them be, to continue having people purchase their next pencils, one slightly better than the other. Not even interested in the improved version or 2nd Apple Pencil model at this point.

      Amazing Product

The cap sticks to the magnets on the edges of your iPad (the black glass) 2. I have never lost the adapter but you can charge on your iPad which pairs it too. 3. It may look silly when connected like that but I just put it in for 4 minutes and it finishes 100% charged 4. It is not apple’s fault newer generations of Apple Pencil can’t work on older iPads I was upset too until I realized that a second generation Apple Pencil could not charge on a older iPad because of wireless charging besides the first one is basically the same thing as the other one. I like this product a lot so hopefully these tips help.
