Unleash your creativity with the Apple Pencil. This stylus connects to your iPad Pro via Bluetooth, giving you the ability to draw, paint, write, and draft with single-pixel accuracy. When in use, the Pencil and iPad Pro work together to determine the Pencil's position on the screen, the force at which it's pressed into the display, and the angle at which it is held. This lets you alter the thickness and shading of the mark you're making in a fluid, natural manner.
Apple Pencil (1st generation)
If you have an Apple Pencil (1st generation), you can use it with these iPad models:
- iPad Air (3rd generation)
- iPad mini (5th generation)
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch (1st or 2nd generation)
- iPad Pro 10.5-inch
- iPad Pro 9.7-inch
- iPad (6th generation)
- iPad (7th generation)
The Pencil can be used in a number of apps, including the Mail and Notes apps and a variety of third-party apps. It's designed for low latency and high precision, with the iPad Pro scanning its signal twice as often as when you use your finger. The iPad Pro can differentiate between fingers and Pencil, and both can be used simultaneously. The system also detects when you rest your hand on the display and ignores those inputs.
The battery lasts for up to 12 hours and is charged by removing the cap and inserting the Lightning connector into the Lightning port on your iPad Pro. A Pencil with a depleted battery can gain up to 30 minutes of usage time with a 15 second charge.
