You might be surprised by how versatile the second-gen Apple Pencil is: it’s great for writing, drawing, painting, or using as a stylus with your iPad. Its pressure sensitivity makes it a real alternative to using traditional pencil and paper, and it’s easy to keep up with. It attaches magnetically to the side of your iPad so you won’t lose it, and it charges while attached.
If you love your tablet but feel like it needs a bit of extra oomph, the Apple Pencil is it. And while there are always new iPads and other Apple products on their way in and out at what feels like too-regular intervals, buying an Apple Pencil now should hold you over at least until the next generation of iPads or longer.
