If you own the Apple Pencil and use it together with apps like Procreate, you probably know that you can use the Apple Pencil to act as a color picker where you can select colors in images within the app and replicate said colors. However, what if you wanted a color that was not available in the app or if you can’t seem to replicate that particular shade?
There’s really nothing not to like about the Apple Pencil. Ok, maybe it is kind of expensive, but if you’re someone who creates a lot of digital art, the low-latency of the Apple Pencil and the palm rejection features are pretty awesome, but as is the case with most styluses, it isn’t quite the same compared to putting pen (or pencil) to actual paper.
One of the selling points of the iPad is the accompanying Apple Pencil accessory. With pressure-sensitivity support and palm rejection, it turns the iPad into a legitimate note-taking and drawing app. However, support for the Apple Pencil was lacking in a lot of native apps save for a handful such as notes.
The Apple Pencil is currently two-generations in, but it has so far only been offered in one color finish – white. However, a tweet by Mr White claims that Apple could actually be preparing a new color option for the Apple Pencil and that this time round, it might be launched in a brand new black finish.
Apple’s Magic Trackpad is an accessory that is highly-beloved by many Mac users, but it has not been updated in quite a while. We suppose it isn’t quite necessary, but it doesn’t mean that it cannot be improved upon. In fact, it seems that Apple could be toying with a rather interesting idea that will make the accessory a must-have for users.
As far as styluses are concerned, the Apple Pencil is pretty expensive. However, many have praised the stylus, especially when used together with the iPad Pro. The size and the response of the Apple Pencil makes it ideal for drawing as well as taking down notes, where it could be faster to write than type.
Ever since the Apple Pencil was introduced, there have been many wondering if support for the iPhone would be coming. We have heard rumors that it could come to 2018’s iPhones, but that clearly did not pan out, and more recently, we’ve heard that it could be coming to this year’s iPhones.
Ever since Apple introduced the Apple Pencil to the iPad, many have been wondering if there could ever be a time when the Apple Pencil could eventually support the iPhone. So far, the stylus has been an exclusive to the iPad lineup, but now according to a report from Business Insider, that could change with the 2019 iPhones.
The Apple Pencil stylus was initially only supported on the iPad Pro, but since last year, the company started to include support for its cheaper iPads. However the same couldn’t be said for cheaper third-party alternatives, like the Logitech Crayon stylus which only worked with the cheaper iPads and not the iPad Pro.
Apple recently launched some new iPad models. This included a 10.5-inch iPad Air and a 7.9-inch iPad mini. These are designed to be Apple’s new lower-end iPads, but despite that, they also came with support for the Apple Pencil which had more or less been an exclusive to the iPad Pro.
The first-gen Apple Pencil was a pretty straightforward device that allowed users to use it with the iPad Pro, Apple improved upon its functionality with the launch of the second-gen Apple Pencil that was announced alongside the newly-designed iPad Pro. Now thanks to a teardown of the device by the folks at iFixit, it seems that the device could potentially do more than advertised.
Wondering whether your old Apple Pencil will work with your brand new iPad Pro? You’re out of luck. You’ll have to purchase a new stylus for your new tablet. It will not be possible to use the first generation Apple Pencil with this generation of the iPad Pro.
When you think of Apple’s iPad Pro tablet, chances are you might also be thinking about the Apple Pencil, which is Apple’s take and reimagining of the stylus. While critics have panned the Apple Pencil as being a very expensive accessory, it is hard to deny how effective it is and how it does pretty much as advertised.
The Apple Pencil together with the iPad Pro have been lauded by creative professionals as being the perfect tool that allows them to draw and take notes on the go, thanks largely to the iPad Pro’s display which offers a fast refresh rate, and the Apple Pencil that has multiple pressure points and also a very low latency.
