      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.

      I purchase the 2nd gen pencil for my iPad Pro, I really liked it until it detached from my iPad and now I can’t find it. The magnet is not strong enough

      Works Flawlessly with iPad Pro, With One Minor Problem

      This product works great with my iPad Pro. It is just like using a regular pencil, but it is more intuitive and more fun to use. I also love that you can charge This product works great with my iPad Pro. It is just like using a regular pencil, but it is more intuitive and more fun to use. I also love that you can charge, store, and pair it by clicking it to the top of your iPad. It really is a genius product. The only thing I can say otherwise about the product is that it seems to make brown marks on the magnet part of it where you store it, when it’s stored. I don’t know if that is the magnet coming out of its shell, or what it is, but there are some brown marks.

      5-star hardware, 3-star firmware

      Beautifully weighted, tactile and precise. The matte finish provides better grip than the v1. Firmware loses one star for not offering gestures beyond the do Beautifully weighted, tactile and precise. The matte finish provides better grip than the v1. Firmware loses one star for not offering gestures beyond the double tap, and loses another for registering phantom double-taps and switching to the eraser randomly. Both these issues can be resolved with firmware / software updates so I hope these come in an update soon. Overall, the combination of iPad, pencil, Paperlike screen protector and Notability is still the ultimate digital notebook in my opinion.
