Apple Pencil (2nd Generation)

  • Overview

    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

      Very bad for writing / taking notes

      The new design looks nicer and the wireless charging is a step in the right direction, but the actual experience during everyday use is terrible. The reason The new design looks nicer and the wireless charging is a step in the right direction, but the actual experience during everyday use is terrible. The reason is that the surface finish is matte/brushed. This results in a surface that slids from your fingers while writing, making it uncomfortable to write with. That, together with the slightly reduced diameter makes is difficult to keep in place between your fingers. What I did with mine is wrap a few loops of tape around the pen in order to be able to write comfortably. It's ugly, but it barely affects the magnets or charging. It's a pity that this is the only option we have to write on the otherwise fantastic 2018 iPad Pro.

      Lazy design

      Pencil is cheaply made and the magnetic feature is not strong or stable! It is hard to hold and fits weird in my hand! I am a lefty and the tapping feature is h Pencil is cheaply made and the magnetic feature is not strong or stable! It is hard to hold and fits weird in my hand! I am a lefty and the tapping feature is hard to use when your finger is not just the right length! The extra tips are expensive too! It also doesn’t work like a stylus when tapping the screen with it! It is just so uncomfortable and finding cases that protect your iPad screen and edges and support the pencil is a nightmare! Oh and a big deal for me was writing to text! Not supported! It is a lot of money to spend not to be useful! Please Apple fix these issues! I hope the next software update Will fix some of these problems!
