What’s in the Box

Apple Pencil, Lightning adapter and extra tip

  • Overview

    Apple Pencil expands the power of iPad Pro and opens up new creative possibilities. It’s sensitive to pressure and tilt so you can easily vary line weight, create subtle shading, and produce a wide range of artistic effects — just like with a conventional pencil, but with pixel-perfect precision.

The Adobe apps work best, particularly Adobe Sketch and Adobe Draw. Life is beautiful!

      End cap is easily lost

      A great product but the idea of the magnetically detachable cap over the charging port is a bad one as this tiny item is easily lost destroying the feel and aes A great product but the idea of the magnetically detachable cap over the charging port is a bad one as this tiny item is easily lost destroying the feel and aesthetics of the pencil. So mine is lost within a month, it would be more sensible to ship a second cap with the pen than a second nib as at least the nib is hard to lose.

      Brilliant

      I got this pencil for a Christmas present and I didn't really no what to think of it but the minute I got my hands on I fell in love with it. When you are draw I got this pencil for a Christmas present and I didn't really no what to think of it but the minute I got my hands on I fell in love with it. When you are drawing there is virtually no lag and is very responsive and has a nice feel and weight to it also there are lots of apps to choose from which support the pencil

      Pairing

      The one downside of this pencil is that it has to be paired to the iPad each time you switch the iPad on WHY ? You don’t have to pair bluetooth devices su The one downside of this pencil is that it has to be paired to the iPad each time you switch the iPad on WHY ? You don’t have to pair bluetooth devices such as trackpads and mice each time you switch an iMac on. This may seem a trivial complaint but plugging the pencil into the iPad lightning connector is a difficult task if you have arthritic fingers !

      Underwhelmed

      I love the new iPad Pro and am enjoying the pencil. However I do find that the pencil discharges quickly if left within a short distance of the iPad overnight. I love the new iPad Pro and am enjoying the pencil. However I do find that the pencil discharges quickly if left within a short distance of the iPad overnight. The alternative is to unpair it each time or put the two items a distance apart. This was an expensive item, which is fine if it is great, but design seems incomplete. I would like to be able to just pick it up and use it, but design omissions get in the way of that.

      Battery fails

      Purchased when it first came out and worked ok but very few apps to use it with so stopped using it. With ios11 apple stated there are more uses for the pen Purchased when it first came out and worked ok but very few apps to use it with so stopped using it. With ios11 apple stated there are more uses for the pen so I went to use it again and it will not charge because it hasn’t been used. The small battery dies if it’s not in constant use. This is not stated in the enclosed documentation with the pen. If you don’t use it weekly it will become an expensive ornament. Apple support was the worst I’ve ever experienced.
