"The Apple Pencil is a necessity to keep students organized."
In the generation: 1e generatie

By Kendall Mathew on 17 January 2020

  • Pros:
    Taking notes for school or work on your iPad helps you organize you notes
  • Pros:
    Feels like writing on paper
  • Pros:
    Charges in 15 minutes
  • Pros:
    10 seconds of charging can give you 30 minutes of writing
  • Con:
    Tips break over time
  • Con:
    Only works on IPad not on iPhone

The Apple Pencil charges in 15, but that doesn’t even matter because one charge last me the entire school day. I was the kind of person that would hardly, and when I would, I’d loose them, but now I have all my notes organized in iPad, which is already lighter than my note book. It feels natural to write with, it took me no time to get used to it, I began sketching the second I got it. When given printed hand outs in class I scan them on my iPhone and complete them on my iPad with the Apple Pencil, so I can save them with the rest of my notes.

"For drawing on the ipad pro you need this pencil"
In the generation: 2e generatie

By Ema Tudose on 25 January 2019

  • Pros:
    Magnetic fix
  • Pros:
    Accurate
  • Con:
    Sometimes gets loose from tablet and discharges (if in backpack for ex.)
  • Con:
    Price

Besides the getting loose from tablet sometimes and discharging, I have no complaints.
I basically only use the Ipad pro for drawing, so the pencil was a must.

"Easy to use but with some cons"
In the generation: 1e generatie

By Rados Lazarevic on 18 October 2019

  • Pros:
    Easy to set up
  • Pros:
    Precise
  • Pros:
    No nonsense
  • Con:
    Can't attach to iPad
  • Con:
    Completely round so it rolls off the table
  • Con:
    Detachable cap that you can lose
  • Con:
    Price!

Everyone knows what Apple Pencil does so there are no surprises. The main surprise actually was that it cannot be attached to the iPad, so I had to buy a self-adhesive pen holster. Keep that in mind.

The Apple Pencil is a necessity to keep students organized.

  • Pros:
    Regular Apple pen, very precise
  • Pros:
    Can use it for any app, even the ones without drawing capabilities
  • Con:
    No magnet, can’t attach it to the iPad!
  • Con:
    Round, rolls off
  • Con:
    Cap falls off, you can lose it

Bought the pen because I had a 2018 version of apple iPad. I took it for granted there is a way to attach the pen to the body of the iPad when not in use, but soon I realized I was wrong. I had to buy a pen loop for notepads to hold it together.

  • Pros:
    Strak design
  • Pros:
    Batterij gaat heel lang mee
  • Con:
    Geen andere kleuren beschikbaar

Geen installatie nodig... is zoals een balpen... ik moest me niet aanpassen om van pen en papier naar Apple notes over te stappen
Ook ideaal voor tekeningen en sketches.
