When using iPad Pro, there may be moments when you want even greater precision. So we painstakingly designed Apple Pencil to expand on the versatility of Multi-Touch. And while the technology inside is unlike anything we’ve ever engineered, picking up Apple Pencil for the first time feels instantly familiar. It lets you make any number of effects, right down to a single pixel, giving you more creative freedom than ever before.
After talking a good amount of smack over the years about styluses, today Apple revealed the Apple Pencil, an input device that allows iPad Pro users insanely pixel-precise input with almost no latency. The device is able to sense both pressure and tilt, enabling creatives a lot of freedom when it comes to content creation.
You may never have seen Apple Pencil before, but you already know how to use it. From the first moment, it does what you expect. And then far more. Whether you’re sketching in the park, painting a watercolor portrait, or drafting a blueprint, Apple Pencil gives you a variety of tools in a single instrument. You hold it, but it doesn’t hold you back.
Slip off the magnetic cap of Apple Pencil to reveal a Lightning connector that lets you charge Apple Pencil simply by plugging it into iPad Pro. The connector features a slightly elongated design, so that charging is possible even when iPad Pro is inside its Silicone Case. In a rush? Just 15 seconds provides enough charge for half an hour of use. And a full charge gets you 12 hour’s worth of scribbling, sketching, annotating, and editing.*
