Product Expert styli

With the Apple Pencil (2nd generation), you no longer have to mess around with cables and connectors. This stylus is fully wireless. Connect the stylus to your iPad Pro or iPad Air (2020) via magnetism on the side of your tablet, and get started with writing or drawing immediately. This is also the place where you can wirelessly charge your pencil. Thanks to the pressure-sensitivity, you can create shadows by holding the pencil tilted and you can vary the thickness of your lines by simply pressing down harder or softer. When you tap the stylus twice, you switch tools in programs such a Adobe Photoshop CC. Set up these tools yourself, so you have your favorite aids within reach and you can stay in your workflow.

    Suitable for:
  • iPad Pro 12.9 inches (2018/2020)
  • iPad Pro 11 inches (2018/2020)
  • iPad Air (2020)

Note: this stylus isn't suitable for the iPad Pro (2017), iPad (2018/2019/2020), iPad Air (2019), and iPad Mini.

"For drawing on the ipad pro you need this pencil"

Ema Tudose | 25 January 2019 | In the generation: 2nd generation

  • 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.

  • Pros:
    Works perfectly with my ipad pro
  • Con:
    It would be nice to have a second spare tip

It works perfectly, pairing super easy.
The only thing to improve would be adding a second spare tip, to change when consumed.

  • 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.
