The new Pencil from Apple is cheaper than ever.
If you want to draw or take notes on your iPad, now is a good time to get an Apple Pencil.
Amazon is once again selling the second-generation Pencil for $89, which is $40 less than the previous record. That makes it an easy choice if you have a tablet that works with it (more on that in a moment) and want a high-end stylus, even if you’re thinking about cheaper third-party options.
With low lag, double-tap tool controls, and low lag, the second-generation Pencil gives you the most creative freedom you can get from an iPad pen. And, most importantly, it is one of the easiest choices. You’ll need an iPad Air, iPad mini, or iPad Pro that’s not too old, but the magnetic charger on the side of these tablets makes it easy to store your stylus while it’s charging. You don’t have to worry about cords or buy a case with a place for a pen.
Don’t worry if you have the latest base iPad or an older model that doesn’t work with the second-generation Apple Pencil. Amazon is also selling the first-generation Pencil for $79, which is $20 less than it has ever been. It’s not as easy to charge (the new iPad comes with a USB-C adapter) and doesn’t have tap control, but it’s still one of the best ways to draw and write on tablets that support it.
