 Look Apple’s first digital pen is totally round and has a silver band at the top.

The Apple Pencil 1 is weighted on one foot, so that it doesn’t roll off the table.

This often goes wrong in practice and it always rolls off the table, sadly.

I still see the Apple logo lying down if the digital pen comes to a halt.

When I pick up an Apple Pencil 1, because of its thickness, it’s more like a marker than a pencil.
Close to its predecessor is the Apple Pencil 2, but it’s certainly different.

It’s thinner and shorter, for instance, which gives me the impression of an actual pencil.

Furthermore, the Apple Pencil 2 is not absolutely round anymore; one side is smooth.

Not only does this mean stronger grip, but the digital pen also doesn’t roll as quickly off the surface.

The silver border has vanished and a subtle logo on the end of the pen has been replaced.
 Charging 

The Apple Pencil 1 is charged by removing the top cap and then inserting the Pencil 1 into the iPad Lightning port.

In addition to having to be careful not to lose the cap, I also have to watch out that by making a wrong move with the iPad or the Pencil while it is attached, I do not harm the Apple Pencil 1 Lightning connector.

 Apple has thought about charging the Apple Pencil 2 carefully.

On the right side of the new iPad Pro, I simply put the Apple Pencil 2 (2018).

Charging is performed wirelessly and now the Pencil 2 is also stored beautifully.

Even when I bring the iPad Pro in my backpack, the magnets on the right side of the iPad Pro keep the Apple Pencil 2 tightly in place.

Apple Pencil

This stylus from Apple will become your most trusted tool if you’re into graphic design or you like sketching and painting. In order to open a realm of innovative possibilities, it extends the usefulness of your iPad Pro.

This Apple Pencil reduces any lag when you build on your iPad Pro, featuring lightning-fast responsiveness.

This stylus easily calculates the exact orientation and angle of your hand with two tilt sensors built into the tip to produce beautiful shading effects.

To reliably calculate how firmly the tip of the Pencil is pressing down, its pressure sensors are carefully positioned.

After a full charge, the rechargeable battery lasts for up to 12 hours.

In 2015, along with the first iPad Pro, the first Apple Pencil was released. A pressure-sensitive stylus was not a popular tablet product at the time, but Samsung, renowned for its S Pen, was an early pioneer in stylus tablets.

For the most part, a specialty item used in drawing slates, such as those made by Wacom, was considered.

While not as customizable as the Wacom top of the line, the iPad Pro acquired respect as the tool of an artist.

The Apple Pencil often senses tilt in addition to strong pressure sensitivity, and most painting applications take advantage of this to adjust a brush stroke.

A very good way of making painting more expressive and closer to a real brush’s experience.
