The Apple Pencil (2nd Generation) offers accuracy, low latency, and a flat, magnetic edge that enables it to clip on to the side of your iPad Pro. It is only compatible with their 11″ iPad Pro (1st and 2nd Gen), 12.9″ iPad Pro (3rd and 4th Gen), and the iPad Air (4th Gen). Once connected, it begins to charge and immediately establishes a Bluetooth connection with your device. Additionally, users can switch between tools, brush sizes, or modes by just double-tapping where their finger is resting. Taps can be configured to transition between the tools that are used the most often if there are those that are used more frequently than others.

You can use the Apple Pencil anytime inspiration strikes. Use it to make notes, sketches, watercolour paintings, or construction designs while you’re there. You may easily draw on and annotate certain activities and applications, including Keynote, emails, and screenshots. When drawing, use a firmer, lighter touch for larger lines, and a tilting motion for shading. You can use your iPad just like a pad of paper since you can rest your hand on the screen without it registering as a mark.
