    The new Apple Pencil delivers pixel-perfect precision and industry-leading low latency, making it great for drawing, sketching, coloring, taking notes, marking up email, and more. And it’s as easy and natural to use as a pencil.

    The new Apple Pencil also features an intuitive touch surface that supports double-tapping. So now you can change tools without setting it down.

    Made specifically for the 11-inch iPad Pro and 12.9-inch iPad Pro (3rd generation), it features a flat edge that attaches magnetically for automatic charging and pairing.

      The verdict is still out

      I will preface this by saying my opinion may change once I can get some questions answered! My first impression is that I love the Apple Pencil 2, easy to pair I will preface this by saying my opinion may change once I can get some questions answered! My first impression is that I love the Apple Pencil 2, easy to pair, goes into low power mode when not in use. It is the best stylus I have ever used for creating artwork digitally (I actually like it more than my Wacom tablet!). I do have some questions I need to get answered before I can give it the 5 stars I want to give it. Can this device be be charged any other way besides sticking it to the iPad? OR has anyone made an iPad case/cover that will actually protect the edges, the most vulnerable part of the iPad while allowing for the Pencil to charge? The Apple Smart Folio seems to expose the edges of the iPad which is great for charging the pencil, but one accidental drop and I fear that the lovely screen will crack. I would really prefer a TPR back cover case that protects the edges but would have a section that would allow for the pencil to charge. I certainly do not want a case that has to be removed to charge the pencil. The only other change I would have liked is to have the pencil flat on 6 sides like a typical pencil.

      This is the BEST stylus I have ever used. I came to the event in October 2018 and got my hands on it. Thanks

      While I liked the new functionality of the pencil and was excited to have it attach magnetically, it didn’t stay attached when I carried my iPad in my brand new While I liked the new functionality of the pencil and was excited to have it attach magnetically, it didn’t stay attached when I carried my iPad in my brand new case (also purchased from apple). I owned this pencil a day and am now am buying another one, with an aftermarket case to keep from losing the pencil. I use my iPad exclusively for note taking at work...2 weeks of lost productivity and paper notepads I can’t search or organize. Great idea, but make a case that secures the pencil, or don’t make it seem the pencil is secure when attached.

      Utterly Disappointed

It worked splendidly for about a month, then just out of the blue, drops connection as soon as I remove it from the dock. I have literally done everything that I can to get it to work, from reinstalling the IPAD software to forgetting and reconnecting the pencil. I am extremely disappointed in Apple. As a teacher, I have always sworn by Apple and in particular the IPAD. I have owned an IPad since their initial release, and each iteration, the quality becomes less and less. The Pencil, to me, is what set the IPad pro apart from it's competition. Maybe there is something to this decline in Apple sales after all. Sincerely, A Very disappointed Apple Certified Teacher.
