• Excellent for drawing or writing
• Excellent for reworking photos and doing graphic arts
• When used as a touch control it is very precise when using the tip. I even like using it to read with and highlighting text in a book.
• It comes with a spare tip that can be replaced.
• It comes with a lightning adapter that lets you use a lighting cable to charge the pencil.
• It charges quickly
• You can vary the pressure or the slope of the pencil tip to adjust the darkness or the width of a stoke of a bush while coloring a drawing for example.
• You can see the charge level of the pencil by pulling down on the daily window shade at the top of the screen and touching widgets. The charge level of your iPad and the pencil will be displayed.
• There is no way to attach the pencil to the iPad Pro or to the Apple Smart Keyboard. A simple magnet or other mounting technique would have been greatly appreciated.
• The cap covering the Lightning plug on the pencil is in no way attached to the pencil which makes it very easy to lose since you have to frequently remove the cap to charge the pencil. The cap does have a small built in magnet so that when it is installed on the pencil it remains in place, but once removed to charge the pencil its lifetime is limited to human error of losing it.
• The charging connector supplied for the pencil is vey small and it also has no method of connecting it to a key ring or any other object. It is the size of a small medical pill and potentially easily lost.
• The pencil does not even have a pocket clip on it like an inexpensive pen or a mechanical pencil. For $99 don't you think that would have been a nice touch?
• Plugging the pencil into the side of the iPad Pro to charge it just seems like an accident waiting to happen. I wonder how many people will either break the pencil or their iPad Pro charging port while doing this?
Overall I would still purchase the pencil as it is a creative tool that is unmatched so far by other techniques to draw, color, paint or work on a tablet. You can draw lines so thin and small they are barely visible to painting with a brush with hundreds of painting special effects. The sensitivity of the screen to the touch of the pencil is amazing and it allows very precise control of your apps and artwork. The pencil connects to your iPad using Bluetooth and when you plug the pencil into your tablet's lightning port it ask you to pair it which occurs instantly.
It is a 5 star tool for use with your iPad Pro but it will not work with your iPhones or other iPads. The cons in my humble opinion drops it to a 4 star item. Ease of use includes carrying the pencil and storing it and Apple has really missed the boat in that regard.
Please be aware that the pencil is available for $99 from Apple so don't pay a premium price over that for the device. Mine came from Apple and I ordered it the day I ordered my iPad Pro. I had to wait 4 weeks to get it which frustrated me with Apple’s launch of the product without having the accessories available. I have added a drawing that I created using an app named Procreate.
The pencil can sense if you're holding it straight or at a slant and the strokes become thicker the more you slant it. It works fabulously in the Notes app and fairly well in other apps, I am sure the other apps will offer updates for iPad Pro soon. Procreate is one of the art apps that offers full support for the Apple pencil and it is amazing. It is however a complex app to use as it has mind-boggling features for advanced drawing and painting. Luckily, it comes with a full featured book to explain how it works. Some apps like Sketches are easier. See sample pic sketched in 10-12 min (Sketches App).
The pencil can also sense light and heavy strokes and it makes marks accordingly. I tried it in the color pencil mode in the Notes app and it is fabulous. It can make really light strokes and dark strokes based on the pressure. See pictures for more details.
It only works on the iPad Pro (not on any other iOS devices) and you have to turn on Bluetooth to use the Pencil. It's available at Apple for $99 so don't buy for an exorbitant price.
I've read that Steve Jobs did not like the idea of a stylus. He can rest easy as this is not a stylus of yore, instead it's the perfect productivity tool to unlock your creativity. I have used every kind of stylus before, and have been frustrated by how little I could do as an art novice. This one feels like a real pencil to me. I was writing some notes on paper today with a real pencil and wished I had my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, so that I could do more while taking notes. I used to get finger fatigue after working for some time on the iPad and a stylus wasn't better than my finger. Until now.
