    Bought this for a Christmas present but found out it was not backwards compatible with older gen iPad - seems odd but returning was no hassle except the time wasted

    Doesn't work with my iPad, which would have been REALLY useful info when I purchased this item with a new 6th gen iPad. Now I'm returning it. Come on Best Buy, help me out! I bought this and the iPad together, at the same time. None of your staff said "btw, those two items won't work together".

    Purchased only to find out it did not work with my iPad Pro 10.5". You would think it would work for all iPads but I guess not...

    Had to return this because it only works with the newest generation iPad. I should have read the reviews on it prior to purchasing.

    My own fault I didn't realize it wasn't backwards compatible with the earlier pros, so I had to return it. Now I've upgraded to the the 11 and need to buy it again.

    Its too expensive, for what it does, but it's kinda of your only option if you want a pencil thats meant to work with ipad pro. It doesnt come close to the surface pen,

    I like the fact that there's no cap to lose anymore. Dislike that I had to buy a new pencil because the new iPad isn't compatible with the first generation pencil.

    Compared to the earlier Apple Pencil the new version is light and feels more like you are using a regular pencil. The magnetic charging is easier and you are less likely to forget it since it is attached to your iPad. The only dowside is it is not compatible with older iPads.

    This "stylus" is incredibly easy to use with the 2018 iPad Pro models, is incredibly accurate, and the storage/charging function of attaching to the side of the iPad is superb. The size, weight, and texture of the pencil body are great, as well. The rating is only five stars because the new Apple Pencil is not compatible with older iPad Pro models.

    Not just a pencil

    The apple pen attaches to the IPAD with a snap. The magnet is strong. The pen has only one drawback in that it is not backwards compatible.

    I bought this for my Ipad Pro 12.9 inch that I bought in July. I had no idea that it would not work with anything except the newest ipad that was just released a month ago. I feel like that should have been made clear to me. I returned it and found the original apple pencil elsewhere.

    this new iteration works just as intended. The best part about it, by far, is the new charging method. It is so much better than the former plug in method. The pencil is not backwards compatible though, but that should not surprise anyone who knows apple.

    No latency, smooth writing. Also it feels really good in your hand as you use it. And the double tap feature that switches between tools is far more useful than I thought it would be! Only downsides are the price, and the fact that it won't work with any other devices, so my iPhone and my girlfriend's older iPad are useless with it.

    The new Apple Pencil is a huge upgrade over the first generation. It is much more balanced in my hand and the ability to tap the pencil and change between writing and erasing is very convenient. Due to its lighter weight and smaller size than the previous generation, writing feels much more natural. I do not have small hands (unlike some executives). The main downside is that it is not backwards compatible with older iPad pros.

    compared to 1st generation, it fixed a major problem the stupid charging mechanics. built in touch and snap on wireless charging are great. tho it does require an 1000 dollar charger, your iPad Pro. it does not work with any other qi charger. also the price, need I say more?

    The Apple Pencil is great! It has immediate response, no lag. It's easy to charge. My only complaint is that I feel like it might drain my iPad Pro a bit faster than I expected. One warning, the Apple Pencil second generation is only compatible with the IPad Pro 11 inch and 12.9 inch. My husband was never told this when he originally purchased the two and we had to return the IPad Pro 10.5 inch.

    White Pencil

    The pencil is white as pictured and about 8" long as expected. It is made by Apple so it works well with the Apple products it was designed to work with. It probably won't work with devices it was not designed to work with. If you want a black or purple pencil this is not for you. If you're looking for a pencil to work with Android devices this is not for you. If you need a hammer to drive nails this is not for you. It could be used to stir creamer in your coffee but do this at your own risk. I do recommend this if this is the product you're looking for.
