Apple Pencil (1st generation) expands the capabilities of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (1st and 2nd generation), the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and the 6th generation iPad. It is responsive to pressure and tilt, so you can control line thickness, stroke, and create many other pixel-precise artistic effects like a pencil.
Lightning responsiveness is the hallmark of Apple Pencil. There is practically no waiting time between the moment you start drawing and when the stroke appears on the screen.
The sleek design of the Apple Pencil houses a sophisticated array of sensors that measure the applied force with maximum precision. In particular, how hard the tip of the Apple Pencil is pressing against the display. The more effort, the thicker the line. The variety of artistic effects is almost endless. As well as your possibilities.
Two sensors built into the tip of Apple Pencil calculate the exact direction and angle of your hand. When you write or draw, their relative position is determined by the Multi-Touch display. This allows you to achieve a shading effect by simply tilting the Apple Pencil, as if you were holding a charcoal or a regular pencil.
