Top Positive Reviews

  • Pros: – battery backup is great (try to charge it using the connector as much as you can and not through ipad) – built quality is decent – writing experience is worth the money cons: – its a bit heavy when compared to a normal pencil – need to purchase 3rd party apps like notability to truly enjoy the experience; apple notes is just ok (apple team must look into this) – need to take a little extra care
  • Its flawless and beautiful with excellent built quality, a marvellous combination of arts & engineering.
  • Great hardware software integration- apple does it again and again and that’s one reason why people love their products and why they demand a huge amount for their products cons- 1.
  • Because it need good force to plug into the ipad for conecting… other wise a super product from apple… and it little bit costlier.
  • And with dedicated note taking apps like goodnotes, and drawing apps like procreate; this is a worthwhile, no…a must have essential, for anyone who draws, sketches and takes notes digitally.
  • Well the apple pencil is kind of like a much needed thing for me nowadays and this is amazing for artists, or just anyone who’d like to take notes etc.
  • Also the zugu case is the best you can buy for your precious ipad!
  • I haven’t used it to write so far, but i’m sure it’ll make an excellent note-taking companion.
  • I hope these are useful and you would consider reading the pros and cons before getting it for a better knowledge.
  • Event- great indian festival october 2019.
  • Even i dropped it a couple of time and it is smiling me flat….. best pencil..
  • In my 1 month usage i am satisfied with this product as i only use my ipad 2018 6th gen with pencil to take down my notes which works perfectly.
  • These are the ideal uses of apple pencil of you can come up with some other use its really appreciated.
  • It’s well balanced and feel natural in your hand.
  • It’s better to get an instrument that gives you pleasure than one with compromises and a not as fulfilling user experience.

Top Negative Reviews

  • That’s the worst thing that can happen to your apple pencil it would horribly ugly lightning adapter- the lightning adapter is another small part, you need to connect it to your lightning cable.
  • Basically the apple pencil 2nd gen sticks magnetically to the side of ipad and charges and no more small parts, but apple has reserved that 2nd gen only for its ipad pro series, and other ipad models have to stick with apple pencil 1st gen, it’s like apple will punish you for being poor.
  • I agree that this design contains a lot of stupid coz we have to plug the pencil into the charger port of the ipad itself…which looks weird as the pencil sticks out and doesnt look ideal in public, and also, it acts as a weak point coz when the pencil is sticking out so much further from the ipad and u accidentally hit the pencil with some force, there are many chances u are prone to break it.
  • Now whenever i see my dead apple pencil i curse apple for designing such a world class product with such a third class quality.
  • Battery is pathetic, if you don’t use apple pencil for couple of months the battey will die and you can’t do anything to make it working again.
  • Apple politics- the worst con, there’s an apple pencil 2nd generation that overcomes a lot of problems in 1st generation.
  • Thought it to be bit costly, but after using it have no complaints.
  • There are many products many pens in the market.. i also did much research,, ultimately bought this beauty.. donot waste your money on other pens.. because you willl not get that satisfaction as this one.
  • Ultimately if you love sketching and artwork.. you will end up buying this product but wasting some money on finding alternatives… features are just awesome.. the pressure sensitivity .. the angle brush slides are just awesome…. the logitech crayon being so expensive in india also does not provide all the features.. little expensive but go for it!!!!!
  • If you forgot to charge for one or two week the apple pencil will be completely dead.
  • Battery dead after 2 weeks of purchase
  • Other alternative are seriously not recommendable from myside as it was buy bad experience.
  • Worst design choice by apple.
  • No problems there at all.
  • The back cap of the pencil must be kept somewhere safe where there are lesser chances to lose it, and you prolly wouldn’t want to lose it coz the pencil just looks ugly without it.
