The new Apple Pencil is designed to be an even more comfortable, natural tool to use. The seamless design – no connectors or moving parts – makes it easy to store.
Magically pair. Wirelessly charge.
The new Apple Pencil starts charging when you place the flat part on the right side of your iPad Pro. It also pairs automatically with your device. And you can charge your iPad Pro and Apple Pencil at the same time. Magic, right? It’s actually magnets, but we’ll take it.
Flat surface for pairing and charging.
Tap to unlock new capabilities. The new Apple Pencil lets you change brush sizes or modes with a double-tap right where your finger rests. And you can customize your taps to easily switch between the tools you use most.
High tech for high art. And everything else.
Apple Pencil is the perfect tool for whenever inspiration strikes. Use it to jot down notes, paint a watercolor or design a building onsite. You can mark up directly in certain apps, and there are all kinds of apps in the App Store that let you do even more with Apple Pencil. Whatever you need to do, Apple Pencil is easy to use but impossible to put down.
Mark up email, screenshots, and more.
You can write and sketch on email messages, and even draw directly in apps like Keynote. Take a screenshot by simultaneously pressing then releasing the side button and the volume-up button, then mark up the shot you just took.
Advanced technology for maximum fluidity.
Apple Pencil is packed with technology designed to make using it completely intuitive. With imperceptible lag and pixel-perfect precision, it feels like a familiar writing and drawing tool you’ve always used.
Highly responsive. Perfectly precise.
Apple Pencil is the best tool to reach for when you need pixel perfect precision. Draw anything down to a single pixel, from a technical illustration to a fine portrait – with wispy hair lines and all. Press harder for thicker lines, lighter for thinner ones. Create shading simply by tilting your Apple Pencil. All with virtually no lag between what you write and what you see.
Use it effortlessly
Tap your iPad Pro display with Apple Pencil to wake up your device and open the Notes app. You can even rest your palm on the display and it won’t register as a mark, so you can use it just like a pad of paper.
