    Very expensive stylus and not very durable.

    I've owned the Apple pencil for a little over a month. I purchased it when I purchased the new iPad Pro. When I first pulled it out of the box and paired it up with my iPad, I went to write with it in one of the apps, and it was barely making marks on the screen. Turned out that the tip needed to be tightened. It was disappointing that it didn't work out of the box, but once I got it working, I enjoyed writing with it. I left it attached to the iPad overnight to charge. The next day, I went to use it and it wasn't charged. I had to turn on the iPad before it would charge up again. Once I got it to a full charge, I then went into a couple of meetings and was taking notes with it. Around the 2 hour mark, the pencil runs out of charge. Sometimes less, sometimes a little more, depending on how intensely I'm using it and whether or not I can sneak it back on the iPad to pick up a little charge. Overall, I'm disappointed with the fact that I didn't have a charge at the start of the day and that I don't get enough charge to get through the day. My final issue with the pencil is around durability. I have my iPad in a UAG case that has a flap which wraps around the pencil when the cover is in place. This helps hold the pencil in addition to the magnetic attachment. A few days ago, I was running to the car and holding my iPad inside my jacket to shield it from the rain. The pencil was knocked free from the iPad on the sidewalk under the awning and landed on the tip. It was under the awning where it was dry, so it didn't get wet. Unfortunately, I have not been able to get it to work since this event. I know it hit the tip because there is the slightest rough spot on the tip that wasn't there before. When I attach the pencil to the iPad, the iPad recognizes that there is a pencil and asks to connect, but never successfully connects. It never displays the charge. It never shows up in the bluetooth devices. It never works in any of the apps that support the pencil. I've tried all the troubleshooting tips: try to repair, turning the iPad off/on, soft reset, etc. At this point, I'm starting to expect that it is permanently damaged. I would have hoped that for a stylus in the $100+ category, it could be a little more durable. I've only had this for 40 days.

    I purchased the new 11" iPad Pro and the new Apple Pencil 2. I was only able to get the pencil to connect via blue tooth to the iPad once out of 12 or more attempts. The Targus case I bought fit the iPad, but it did not have a cut out on the top of the frame so that the Pencil can be magnetically attached and charged. It requires taking the iPad out of the case every time connecting and charging is needed. You can't charge the pencil with a cord any longer like the previous pencil. The magnet was too weak to hold it on the iPad and it fell off most of the time. I see that Apple is now charging $799.00 for this tablet, and it raised the price of the 12.9" tablet to over a thousand dollars. I don't think that really helps the consumer. Also, this iPad uses the new USB-C cable and charger, so none of my other iPad products are compatible. Over all I was not happy with the combination of products and returned all of it to Best Buy for a refund after one day of Frustration.

    It need to be recharged every time you use it. The magnet to be attached to iPad is not strong as advertised: it was always detaching from the iPad.

    I expected a much better response for 2nd generation product, but it offered similar performance. The design and grip are better than 1st generation.

    too easy to lose and not worth the price Apple is charging. Works fine but this is a grossly overpriced product.
