You don’t need a stylus with an iPad unless you’re an artist. This may be what you’re thinking. And you’d be right. However, once you start using one, you can see how much it can benefit you. This is especially true with an Apple Pencil (2nd generation). It does more than draw, especially with the “Scribble” feature that was instituted in iPadOS 14.
The Apple Pencil 2 is compatible with iPad Pro 11-inch (1st, 2nd, and 3rd gen), iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd, 4th, and 5th gen), iPad Air (4th gen), and iPad Mini (6th gen). While it helps you sketch, doodle, and paint, it can also take notes and help you tap items on the screen.
Scribble works particularly well with the Apple Pencil. It allows you to handwrite on the screen in any app – not just handwriting apps. In any typing field, you can “scribble” the text with your Apple Pencil 2, and it will recognize the text.
In addition, the Apple Pencil (2nd generation) has no noticeable lag, perfect precision, and sensitivity in the way it is tilted and the pressure that is applied. It’s like having several design implements in one. You can change tools within it with a double-tap.
Charging couldn’t be simpler, and it’s what separates it from the 1st gen Apple Pencil. It simply charges on top of the compatible iPad Air, iPad Pro, or iPad Mini. There’s a flat edge to the stylus, and when it’s put on top of the iPad, it magnetically attaches and starts charging. No separate charger or cord is needed.
