Introduced alongside the original i Pad Pro, Apple Pencil combines pressure sensors in the tip with telemetry sensors and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery in the shaft to provide an experience that's both similar to but decidedly different from traditional digital stylus pens.There's no eraser on the back, which I don't miss because none of the pencils I used in art school or design work ever had erasers on the back.There are also no buttons on the Pencil, unlike some other stylus pens and real-world art tools like the airbrush.I kinda wish there was something there to click on, even though I'm not sure how I'd use it. You can charge the Pencil by plugging it right into the Lightning port on your i Pad, which a lot of internet hot-takers found silly but which anyone who's used one will tell you is a life-saver in practice: If the Pencil runs dry, without even needing to find a charger, you can top it up quickly and finish your work.i Pad 2018 (6th gen) is the linear successor of last year's i Pad 2017 (5th gen).It takes what was the best value in tablets, adds the Apple A10 Fusion chipset, faster LTE (if you go with the LTE model), a more coppery gold finish (if you go with the gold model), and support for the Apple Pencil, all while keeping the price the same.With Apple Pencil, is that enough for someone who wants to draw and write by hand but just couldn't justify the price of a Pro? See at Best Buy The 2018 i Pad (6th Generation) lacks the laminated, DCI-P3 wide color gamut, 120 Hz Pro Motion, color-matching True Tone display of the i Pad Pro.
(Just beating the original i Pads Pro and approaching the power in a Mac Book Air or even 2013 Mac Book Pro…) The second significant addition to the 2018 i Pad is Apple Pencil support.That's the same "thinness" and weight as the original i Pad Air, and 0.05 inches (1.4 mm) thicker and 0.07 pounds (9 grams) heavier than the i Pad Air 2 or 9.7-inch i Pad Pro. Same big, plastic window on the top back of the LTE version.It's also got the same two speaker system on the bottom. It's the design language that started with i Pod Touch, moved to i Pad mini and i Pad Air, and settled on i Pad Pro.To support the Pencil, i Pad 2018 has the same touch system as the 2016 9.7-inch i Pad Pro.Combined with the air gap of the non-laminated display, it's not a great an experience as the original Pros, much less the current versions.
I'm used to drawing with one hand and erasing with a gum or white eraser in the other, which is a behavior emulated by most art apps.
