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

      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.

      Nice improvement. Body is wearing thru.

      I had the previous gen iPad pro and pencil. And this one is so much better with the magnetic mounting and wireless for charging and pairing. Have not had any is I had the previous gen iPad pro and pencil. And this one is so much better with the magnetic mounting and wireless for charging and pairing. Have not had any issues with pencil becoming detached - stays in place for me. Sometimes I have to reattach to pair even though I just removed it. One issue that I will bring to Appke store is the plastic body is wearing thru where the magnets are located and exposing the magnets. The exposed metal has not scratched the iPad body but I'm worried it will probably get worse.
