    The 1st Pencil was great,the 2nd is even better!

    • Written by Luca Lorenzo B from milano

    I upgraded my old 1st gen Pencil when I bought the 3rd gen iPad Pro, and I really am a happy customer.
    under iPadOS the lag is actually reduced to zero and it feels 90% like a real pencil. just perfect to sketch with.
    the only thing I complain about is that you can’t swipe back to the home screen with it, and still have to use ur finger.

    Ugh. So frustrating

    • Written by Elisa M from Fresno

    Love the feel. But that’s it. Falls off the magnet with light touch. Tip unrecognizable and now doesn’t works. Sooo not an apple thing to do. Fix it. Might as well come with extra tips if you’re going to compromise on quality.

    People do not understand. Amazing product

    • Written by andrew B from Porter Ranch

    Ok so i don’t know if people know that the magnet is suppose to go into the iPad Pro. Not the fridge as I have seen some 1 star reviews say. This is an amazing product. Works way better. Goes so perfectly with my iPad Pro. You should get the iPad Pro that had a magnet inside of the iPad. Not stick it onto your wall or fridge (some walls have magnets in them). It is also has a great build and is very strong. 100/100 would recommend this.

    Do Not Recommend

    • Written by Kumiko N from Honolulu

    I got this pencil and it connected fine when I first tried it. Now skip to a couple of days later where I’ve been letting it sit on top of the iPad for a while without touching it. It won’t even connect anymore! It no longer showed on Bluetooth, and was just a terrible experience. And while I got it exchanged, it still wasn’t worth the trip to the Apple store. Getting a stylist on amazon for 1/10 the price would be better than this. First generation was a great experience though, and I was forced to upgrade when my school upgraded the iPad as well. Just do not recommend.

    I was very skeptical at first regarding the new apple pen. I am still not extremely happy with the magnet and as a result I had lost my pen. I was disheartened however, knew it was my fault. Well, I found my pen and I have to give Apple kudos. My pen was in my backyard, in the rain and wet, for two weeks. When i found it, not only does it work perfectly, it still had a 15% charge. I’m no longer skeptical.

    One drop and it was done.

    • Written by Curt C from Cincinnati

    I liked it at first, but just seemed to be a skinny stylus. I dropped it once and the tip flattened as a result- causing it to no longer work at all. I’ve only had it for about 10 days now. Wasn’t what I expected.

    Don’t do it.

    • Written by Teresa R from Citra

    I would give this 0 stars but it’s not an option. I had the first generation and loved it. I gave it to my daughter when I upgraded my iPad and had to get the second generation pencil as it’s the only option. It doesn’t consistently write. Sometimes it doesn’t write at all or it skips while writing. It’s very frustrating and it’s even more frustrating that I’m out of the return window. I would not waste my money on this if I were you.

    Annoying limitations

    • Written by Elizabeth C from Monticello

    On the iPad Pro 12.9 (3rd gen), it doesn’t work on the hidden taskbar (dock) at the bottom of the screen, to swipe up to see all open apps, or the control panel that you swipe down from the upper right side of the screen to access. I’m not sure why these features aren’t compatible with the pencil, but it’s annoying. I was hoping to not have to touch the screen, but this makes it impossible to not touch it since you have to touch to close out multiple apps or switch between them. I haven’t had any issues with the magnet or pairing.

    Magnet is terrible

    • Written by Gregory T from Washington

    It falls off incredibly easily, lending to it getting broken or lost. Fell off mine to an irretrievable location, and loss isn't covered by apple care. Huge disappointment.

    Premium price, but it’s a downgrade

    • Written by Brian N from Palo Alto

    The new apple pencil is absolutely cumbersome if you own other iPads that support Apple Pencil because Apple pencil 2 only can works with the latest iPad Pro ! Plus, for such a premium price, I expected Apple to include at least an additional tip, but guess what, no tip is included despite more expensive than previous generation and almost-the-same performance with the trouble tap feature.
    Ok, let’s talk about the issues I’m experiencing with this pencil. Within first week after purchasing it, the pressure sensitivity dropped significantly, and of course it wouldn’t be an issue as i can simply file a warranty claim, which i did. But it took Apple more than a week (around 10 days if i’m not mistaken) to just replace the stupid pencil, thus no work can be done for the ENTIRE week. Secondly, the new Apple Pencil is so fragile, I still remembered when I was testing the pressure sensitivity on my Apple Pencil, i heard a “crack” sound from the internal of it, no sure if something broke or what but the build quality is definitely awful for such a premium accessory. Not to mention you can’t even repair it, find it if misplaced. So just be extra careful if you are a new Apple Pencil user.

    2nd pencil

    • Written by Peter H from Yorktown

    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

    • Written by Michael H from Leesburg

    Fell from 3 feet onto floor and sheared the nib off damaging the threads it screwed into. 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

    • Written by Darcy D from Catlin

    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!

    Amazing until you lose it

    • Written by Jason B from Bloomington

    I had a blast with the pencil, and my daughter loved drawing with it. Unfortunately, I lost it somewhere in the house, and haven’t been able to find it for over a week because I’m sure the cat batted it around the floor into a corner or under something. There is no way to have it make a noise or search for it, so that $129 purchase is now gone only 2 weeks after I got it. Really disappointed that I can’t use it anymore.

    Overpriced trash

    • Written by Jacob C from Tacoma

    The magnets are trash like they used some cheap refrigerator magnets or something. Can barely support the pencil’s weight. And I bought directly from apple.com, so it’s not a chinese knockoff.

    Beware the Tip of This Stylus

    • Written by Deborah C from Reston

    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....

    • Written by Veronica L from Oxnard

    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

    • Written by Erice K from Grovetown

    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,

    Easy to Lose!

    • Written by Coty A from Jacksonville

    Falls off often, magnet is not strong! I kept it in a save place and still lost it. Also doesn't swipe up which is disappointing. Won't replace unless a better version happens soon.
