Apple Pencil expands the power of iPad Pro and opens up new creative possibilities. It’s sensitive to pressure and tilt so you can easily vary line weight, create subtle shading, and produce a wide range of artistic effects — just like with a conventional pencil, but with pixel-perfect precision.

The versatile Apple Pencil is the best tool to reach for when you need pixel‑perfect precision. Use it to jot down notes, draft a schematic, or paint a watercolor. Or sign a lease or mark up an email. Whatever you need to do, Apple Pencil is easy to use but impossible to put down.

12 hours of battery life.

You supply the creative charge.

Under the magnetic cap of Apple Pencil is a Lightning connector that lets you plug into iPad Pro. In a pinch, 15 seconds of charging gives you 30 minutes of use.1 And a full charge gives you 12 hours of scribbling, sketching, annotating, and editing.2
