Things to Consider When Buying an Apple Pencil

The current pencil has been touted as providing a more responsive drawing experience when compared to other similar products like those from Wacom which have dominated this market for many years now.

The new design of the product boasts an all-aluminum body that’s both thinner than its predecessor, whilst also being lighter – despite its longer length. It uses a proprietary auto-calibration system which is supposed to make the device easier to set up and maintain, whilst also providing a more accurate tracking experience. Apple pencil second generation has been designed to provide considerable flexibility, allowing users to choose between several different tips. Some of the tips you can use include ‘hard’, ‘medium’, and ‘soft. Each tip provides a different level of sensitivity to the pencil, allowing users to achieve greater control over how the device responds to their input.

The ‘soft’ tip will likely be the one most commonly used by users, being a ‘medium-soft’ blend of nylon and silicone. The trouble with many current styluses is that they don’t feel like you’re drawing on real paper; this is why Apple has decided to include the new, softer ‘soft’ tip. This will allow for far greater levels of fidelity than those seen in most current products.

The tips feature a unique shape that’s intended to provide both greater comfort and accuracy. The new design includes a tapered conical point with a relatively flat area just before it – these changes are intended to make it easier for artists to judge distance as they draw while also improving accuracy as they work at different angles on the surface of the screen.

The device also supports a Lightning to USB-C cable, which is a much larger and more powerful version of the standard Lightning cable that comes with iPhones, iPads, and iPods. This gives the Apple pencil second-generation far greater battery life than its predecessor, with Apple’s specification sheet on the product listing a battery life of ‘about 12 hours.

The new device is also designed to be compatible with the entire Apple iPad range and the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, all iPad Pro models, the iPad Air 2, and later as well as iPad mini 4. It also has compatibility with all Mac computers running macOS Sierra 10.12.1. The portability of this product is possible because it includes a built-in Lightning connector so you can just take it with you on your phone or tablet wherever you go

The success of this product remains to be seen; however, some industry insiders have already said that ‘Apple pencil second generation will become a standard for artists on mobile devices. A key question will be how Apple’s stylus fares against the competition in this new, emerging market.

Apple pencil is the first of its kind of stylus. It has many improvements in comparison to previous generation styluses that were used by iPad, iPhone, and iPod users. The Apple pencil second generation has usability improvements as well such as improved palm rejection, which ensures that artists can draw without accidentally striking the side of the screen with their palm while they work, as well as other improvements that result in a vastly superior experience for artists when using this unique product.
