Save up to $40 on Apple Pencil (2nd generation) at Best Buy

There is a huge world of stylus-compatible devices and tablets besides the iPad. Still, Apple’s tablets are the first choice for many artists and educators because of their ease of use (better than Surface tablets) and deep tablet-centric software library (better than Samsung tablets). Capacitive styluses have enabled artists to use the iPad since the first model was released in 2010. Apple’s launch of the Pencil in 2015 led the company to simple configuration and tight integration with its operating system. Apple listened to complaints about its original stylus and provided a second-generation unit that resolves virtually all of them.

The first-generation Pencil was a perfect cylinder that could be easily rolled, made of a shiny material that could be a bit greasy. The second-generation model has a flat side and is pleasantly dry and smooth to the touch. The original Pencil was a bit too long at 6.92 inches; the new one, at 6.52 inches, is more balanced in hand. Apple Pencil 2 is the best stylus available for the iPad and is significantly improved over the original. Magnetic charging, touch controls, and a clean design make it a compelling choice for designers, and iOS changes make it even better.

But the high price and limited compatibility mean it is not for everyone. Although the Apple Pencil 2 has a somewhat no-frills design, it is a vast improvement over the original. The matte plastic design is more accessible to grip than its glossy predecessor and a bit shorter. Overall, it feels like a pencil in hand, which, we hazard a guess based on the name, is exactly what Apple wanted to achieve. Given the array of new features available for the Apple Pencil in iPadOS 14, we thought it was time to revisit the Apple Pencil, mainly because these new features mean that anyone could take advantage of the device.

Design is an essential aspect of the Apple Pencil, but perhaps one of the best aspects is that, like a fine wine, it improves with age. This has proven true with iPadOS 14, with which Apple introduced many features that make the Pencil a tool for everyone, not just graphic designers. We will focus more on the hardware than the software, so we will not go over the new features in depth. The main part is Scribble, which allows users to write and automatically transform text using Apple’s recognition technology.
