Unleash your creativity with the 1st gen Apple Pencil. This stylus connects to your iPad Pro or 6th Gen iPad 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.
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.
