      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.

      Beware the Tip of This Stylus

      I fell in love with this stylus (my first) when I got my new iPad Pro. Couldn’t believe how well it performed. Then, after a few weeks, it died. Called support I fell in love with this stylus (my first) when I got my new iPad Pro. Couldn’t believe how well it performed. Then, after a few weeks, it died. Called support which couldn't help with any trouble shooting I hadn’t already thought of and told me to take it to the store. Kept the stylus attached to the iPad while I continued to use the iPad with my fingers and, several days later, saw that the tip of the stylus was Gone! Days after that I found a funny little part in my house and suddenly put two and two together. It was the tip of the stylus which had fallen off. Reattached it and screwed it tightly. Voila! Performance again. Never had to take it to the store. It seems that the action of repeated use loosens the tip of the stylus which then won’t work. So, keep it screwed tight. Not as advertised by Apple as a one piece seamless product, so Beware.

      Works Great! Until....

      I really enjoyed using my Apple Pencil. It was easy to use and really loved how easy i was to charge. And then... I lost it. I can’t find it, and there’s no I really enjoyed using my Apple Pencil. It was easy to use and really loved how easy i was to charge. And then... I lost it. I can’t find it, and there’s no location or tracking mechanism built into the pencil. At the cost, it should come with some built in locating software. Really want to buy another one but I’m afraid I’ll lose it again :(

      Pencil is not worth the purchase

      I purchased the pencil approximately 14 days ago., The tip of the pencil looked like it is melting away. You can now see the metal in the tip. I took the pen I purchased the pencil approximately 14 days ago., The tip of the pencil looked like it is melting away. You can now see the metal in the tip. I took the pencil to apple store and they could not repair or replace the tip. Because I did not purchase it from an apple directly, their is nothing they can do, I am basically out of money and a pencil unless I purchase another one. I do not draw nor do I use notepad, so the pencil is basically useless anyway. Totally disappointing. Thought the manufacture warranty would cover any defects but not in this case according to the Apple store in my home town,
