    Feels like actual writing/drawing.

    I wouldn't say this feels like writing with a pen or pencil on paper. It is a little too slick as you move across the screen so you notice a lack of resistance and pull, for lack of a better explanation. It still has a response and accuracy that make it feel like an actual writing utensil and you will feel like you are drawing onto paper. The plethora of apps that are catered to this along with it's accuracy, ease of use, and magnetic charging make it a must have.

    Thoughtful design

    I love the design of this. It feels more like a normal pencil, and as a newcomer to digital drawing I appreciate how that feels. I did end up getting a matte protector (no need for something specifically marketed as "paper-like") and it feels so natural to draw. I'm not sure how much of the experience is the digitizer vs the stylus, but it's very precise. The magnetic charging is just very convenient.

    waited to get the 2nd gen when it finally came I took it home to see it didn't work. took it back and the geek squad girl had no idea what to do with it either then sent me for a replacement. after the guy tried reaching them several times with no answer, he went back to get one. after like 15 minutes he returns and they have none in stock. so I just said forget it I wont even try again. 1st apple product that appears to be worse than their cables

    2nd gen. Apple pencil

    The pencil work great but it must be attached to the iPad to charge and this is kind-of a pain. The pencil tends to get bumped off and I have noticed the iPad discharges much more quickly when it is connected all the time. I wish Apple would provide a solution to charge the pen at my desk and address the rapid discharge issue when the pen is always connected. Pen works great but I do not like the mandatory single way to keep it charged.

    If you've to pick an accessory to go with iPad Pro

    If you've to pick an accessory to go with iPad Pro, get this and skip the keyboard. There are much cheaper blue tooth keyboards around, but the Apple Pencil is a must. It works so well with the new iPad Pro and the magnetic charger is like a giant "Duh!" Why didn't they think of it sooner? I owe the first gen iPad Pro and Pencil, and this time, the improvements are incredible. Though what you see is subtle, but the experience the improvements made are enriching.

    So much better than the 1st Gen

    I had the first generation pencil and keeping it charged was a total nightmare. I bought the new iPad so I had to buy the new pencil. I wasn’t expecting it to be any better. In as far as performance/use, I really don’t see too much difference. I bought a case for my iPad that holds the pencil in place, so it is always charged. I never even have to think about it anymore! Totally recommend it if not only for this reason.

    This new Apple pencil 2 is stellar! So much better than the last version. Uses USB C charging nowadays and the Apple Pencil 2 uses a magnet to keep it attached to the iPad pro. Double tap the end to switch between writing and erasing. Look in Apple Pencil settings for other features to use when double tapping.

    This has worked wonders with my new iPad Pro. I used it both for drawing and note taking on various apps. The charging is super fast and I have yet to find any concern with lag in the connection. I would highly recommend this for any iPad owners looking for a stylus. I have used three other brands and while some were better than others none compare to the reliability this product offered.

    When I bought my new Ipad Pro 12.9, I also bought the pen to go along with it. I didn't know if I would draw much with it but I found myself using it all the time just to navigate the Ipad. Now I barely touch the screen anymore. With the pen being able to be attached to the side of the Ipad when not in use and it also charges while it's attached, it just make it super convenient to use. Can't imagine not having it now.

    This pencil is a joy to hold and a joy to use. Any artist looking to maximize their use of an iPad Pro must have the product, it’s extremely precise and little no lag with the newest Pro models. The ability to wirelessly charge off the side of the tablet is also a welcome and useful addition, eliminating the cumbersome way of the last generation of pencil. Overall extremely pleased with my purchase.

    The pencil response is so much faster and the feel is much nicer than the last pencil. I like that you can charge it on the iPad but it can get in the way and there is no spot for it on most cases without making it extremely bulky. I like the double click response for switching between pen and eraser, however, it switches on it’s own sometimes which is extremely annoying. All in all, it’s a good product and I definitely recommend it.

    Should have come with the Ipad Pro

    Aside from the price, the Apple Pencil 2 is a great accesory for the Ipad Pro. Note taking is a breeze with no perceivable lag. The pencil definately makes the whole experience with the Ipad Pro much more enjoyable for me. One complaint I have is not being able to go to Home screeen or seeing all open apps using the pencil when in an app. You probably can get away with a cheaper stylus if you arent using it for drawing and artwork.

    The Pencil Works Great for Drawing, but...

    Apple does not seem to integrate handwriting recognition out of the box. There is Good Notes in the App Store, but nothing out of the box as far as I can tell. As mentioned, it works great for drawing. The interface is sleek enough to translate pressure and positioning into the desired on-screen effect. The potential is there, but the lack of handwriting recognition out of the box is a drag.

    The Apple Pencil is wonderful and a must have with the larger display iPads. Accurate and responses to the screen just as if it were pen and paper. Downside though it came with only the one tip unlike the Pen. With two. Also easy to loose or miss place if not very hard to see and feel when looking for it. Loose pens and pencils often be prepared to go broke or a product replacement warranty.

    I returned my new iPad and this pencil for a few reasons. The pencil will only charge on the the edge of the iPad which I understand yes, but the case on the iPad has to be pulled partially off in order to charge the pencil . Its a pain in the butt to say the least . The iPad got returned due to two different glass screen protectors made half my screen unresponsive. I like my iPad 10.5” and apple pancil way better, much easier to charge the pencil .

    This is a great pencil. It doesn’t lag and it feels almost like the real thing. The only two reasons I didn’t 5-star is because I’d prefer the eraser to be at the end rather than double-tapping and because the magnetic charging really limits the cases you can use with it. Seems like you sacrifice protection over a cool magnetic holder for the pencil and there is no other way to charge it.

    Great accessory for NEW iPad Pro

    Although I am disappointed in apple for not allowing you to use the old Apple Pencil with the new 2018 iPad Pro, I am not disappointed in this pencil. Using this pencil in the notability app, really makes a difference in my meetings. Furthermore, using it to drawl is convenient, and enjoyable. I purchased a very inexpensive silicone sleeve for the pencil...Which keeps it protected and the soft silicone is comfortable when using it.

    This apple pencil is a great tool. I am trying to go paper less and this pencil is moving me closer to my goal. It works well and it will be even better when Apple releases iPad OS later in 2019. If your iPad supports the Apple pencil, you would be crazy not to own the pencil. It will make you more productive at work, in school, and in your personal affairs.

    Great Stylus For Ipad Pro

    Posted
    Anni
    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    Pro: Works great with the Ipad Pro Easy to grip, and easy to charge. Changing from pen to eraser is a breeze and the pressure sensing is great. Cons: Currently no 'return to homescreen' option. Falls off magnetic charging dock sometimes. It's pricey for a stylus. Recomend for artist or those that write on tablets quite often. If not in that category, you don't need it; you'll most likely never use it.

    The pencil works seamlessly. It is very fluid and comfortable to hold. I love the ability to just place it on the side of my iPad Pro to charge, connect and see how much battery is remaining. It charges up really fast to a full charge. The use of the customization of features is as simple as double tapping on the pencil itself to bring up what you would like to do. Great product but the price could be a bit lower.
