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.

      REALLY. Still no replacement tips!

      Yes this is the best stylus ever made, no doubt about it. But having no ability to replace a seven cents piece of plastic at the end of the stylus is more than Yes this is the best stylus ever made, no doubt about it. But having no ability to replace a seven cents piece of plastic at the end of the stylus is more than just a little frustrating. I love my new iPad Pro, but for me without the pencil it is not one stitch more useful than my three-year-old iPad. I bought the pencil, which wasn't easy as everyone will remember, but now having lost one tip, and gone through the other, I have $1400 worth of technology that is next to useless because I cannot buy a new tip, which would likely be seven cents worth of material, which I would still happily buy for Apples hugh markup... $10????... If replacement TIPS WERE ONLY AVAILABLE... This so atypical for Apple.... it just makes me sick with frustration! Please Apple..MARKET REPLACEMENT PARTS FOR THIS OR ALLOW OTHERS TO DO IT!!! I have spent too much time and money on your products to be treated so poorly.

      It's sketchy...but don't DARE drop it.

      I love the way the pencil works as a drawing tool and it's as good if not better than any Wacom product (5 stars for that). When you bear down it can get confus I love the way the pencil works as a drawing tool and it's as good if not better than any Wacom product (5 stars for that). When you bear down it can get confused and flash it's edge shading tool. I got mine in 3 weeks. The cylindrical industrial design promotes breakage as every other #2 pencil in the world is faceted so as not to roll off a desk. No eraser as on Wacom and 53. Lots of changing tools. Mine fell from my pants pocket to the ground (3 feet) and the tip bent and it would not draw properly. I changed the tip and now it works better, but still has sensing issues. Dropping a computer is a rarity, but dropping a pencil is pretty commonplace. Seems too precious for long term everyday use. How can you reinvent a 99 cent pencil into a $99. pencil and have it be this fragile? (2 star deduction.) It falls nose down with all the electronics inside so I was toast. It's also about an inch longer than the average pen so it seems awkward in a shirt pocket, thus flipping out of my side pant pocket. Be careful not to lose the chicklet sized adapter that allows it it be charged by cord. No means of attaching it to the case. Samsung buried theirs in the device. When it works I love it and the software can only get better. Great pencil, just don't drop it..

      Could be much better

The execution, not so much. For it's precision, I like the small diameter tip on the pencil. However, it would be nice if an alternate tip with a slightly softer material was available. The tap-tap-tap on my iPad Pro screen becomes very loud at night when you are next to your sleeping spouse. For me, the body is too hard and slick to provide a comfortable secure grip, especially when combined with the natural oils exuded from your skin over time. A slightly larger diameter or a semi-hexagonal shape would be more useful, and/or the addition of a removable textured silicone sleeve for those with a weaker grip. Just because you can cram the electronics into a small tube the size of a #2 pencil doesn't mean you should do so. The round body and too-weak magnetic attraction of the single metal ring located near the cap prevents secure temporary storage on the Smart Cover - a very convenient resting space since no other means of docking/storage on the iPad is provided. If the body had squared-off sides, and/or there was a 2nd magnetic ring near the stylus tip the adhesion to the Smart Cover would be much more secure. With the variety of small parts that come with the pencil a small pocket-sized storage case for the adapter, the spare stylus tip, and the pencil cap (when charging) would have been a nice addition to the package.

      Love it but can use some improvements

      Love it! Performancewise - it does the job (that’s my 3 stars) but please make it worth the price. iPad Pro users will always buy the Apple Pencil, so you guy Love it! Performancewise - it does the job (that’s my 3 stars) but please make it worth the price. iPad Pro users will always buy the Apple Pencil, so you guys dont need to worry about losing buyers, but please think of your customers as well. Again I really love it - and here are my BUTS ———Once you misplace it and it’s battery dies...sigh I can’t find mine since the battery is dead. And I am so angry because right now, I can’t afford to get one. Need to design it in such a way that once it’s not being used, like the iPhone, iPads, and MACBOOKS, power off so batt doesn’t die and put a beep sound and add it to the list of devices that could be found using the Find My app.. For $99, throw in more accessories to it, like a grips in different colors (or better yet, design a textured one for a better grip). Also throw in different color tips and lightning adaptors and the Belkin case with it. Also add more colors and not just white. Rose, grey, gold? Design is cool, sleek, but not practical - it is slippery, will slide on an incline, cap is easily dislodged. Why not a cap that screws on and off and is magnetic at the same time? Also add a clip to it, different colors too, just so that it can be clipped on breast pockets. Hopefully, at least some of these wishes of mine will come true.

Considering the premium price for this product you would think it would last longer. Did everything right....kept it charged....never dropped.....never wet. Tried all recommendations. The monthly cost for me over 1 1/2 years $7-$8 a month.....way to much. Contacted Apple support and replacement cost would be $120.....new they are $129....can’t be repaired. Poor product....no support..... Don’t buy it.

Four months later and I am s I was hesitant to get the pencil based off the reviews. Well, I went ahead and bought it cause why not! lets live life on the edge. Four months later and I am still beyond happy with my purchase. I use it for my business, my son uses it to color, I use it to journal. I even got one of my clients to buy one and she loves it also. If you want it, buy it. don't second guess it. It is worth it.
