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

      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

      2nd pencil

      First pencil worked as a charm , then after three weeks it stopped charging , tried everything to make it charge but to no avail. Watched it trickle down to 0% First pencil worked as a charm , then after three weeks it stopped charging , tried everything to make it charge but to no avail. Watched it trickle down to 0% . Replaced it threw the retailer for a new pencil , now after one week I have the same issue !!! Really !!! Apple for sure is getting cheaper and cheaper but charging premium prices !! Time to get the third pencil I think and debating of moving away from Apple products , I don’t mind paying premium prices for reliable products but not for something unreliable like that !

      Too fragile for $129

After removing remnants and replacing the nib, the pencil would charge and connect but not work. Add $10 or $20 and make it out of aluminum or something...or was it being so fragile and irreparable the plan to begin with?

      Not worth the money

      Magnet definitely not strong enough. Pencil fell off within first week of owning it and there is no way to track it. Extremely disappointed! Way too expensive t Magnet definitely not strong enough. Pencil fell off within first week of owning it and there is no way to track it. Extremely disappointed! Way too expensive to be able to lose so easily with no tracking!
