What’s in the Box

Apple Pencil, Lightning adapter and extra tip

  • Overview

    Apple Pencil expands the power of iPad Pro and iPad (6th generation) 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 a conventional pencil, but with pixel-perfect precision.

      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

      Disappointing

      Very disappointed as I have had two of these fail within a year of their life. The fault being that they suddenly refused to charge, and that was it. Apple repl Very disappointed as I have had two of these fail within a year of their life. The fault being that they suddenly refused to charge, and that was it. Apple replaced the first but it happened again on the second. If you look on the internet you will find many reports of the none chargeable pencil. Which is a shame because it worked very well up to that point but then nothing would, or could, charge it. At £89 it should be faultless. As I said, very disappointing.

      I love this - BUT the cap is rubbish

      The Apple Pencil has changed my life. I use it every day with my 12.9" iPad Pro. It is very responsive and works like you are writing on paper. All my work note The Apple Pencil has changed my life. I use it every day with my 12.9" iPad Pro. It is very responsive and works like you are writing on paper. All my work notes are done effortlessly. The thing that is so so wrong is the cap. Well, I have lost it anyway. I bought replacements which also have got lost. I now have a thing I found on Amazon which is a cap which is attached to a band around the pencil. Does the trick but does not look great but at least protects the connector. Apple - the device is amazing but the cap is a poor design. (Hence one star lost) I am a loyal Apple customer with a MacBook Pro, iPad Pro 12.9" and iPad Pro 9.7" so I am being constructive. And, if you want to send me a new cap for free I would be very happy!

      Perfect Pencil

      I have been thinking of buying the pencil to complement my IPad Pro for a while now. I am so glad that I finally took the decision to go for it. It is easy to I have been thinking of buying the pencil to complement my IPad Pro for a while now. I am so glad that I finally took the decision to go for it. It is easy to connect, charge and use. Yes it would be handy to have a case included especially for the price but that hasn’t stopped me giving this product a deserving 5*.
