No.
£79??? I like apple stuff but what kind of technical sorcery does this pen possess to justify that price tag ? Honestly I am not being funny but need to know . I am off to google ........ Now I see looks cool if you need it.

So you buy a hideously expensive tablet then buy this on top? Seems a touch cheeky even for Apple surely it should come with the Pro

To quote Steve Jobs:
"Who wants a stylus? You have to get em', put em' away. You lose them. Yuck."

But it's the same thing I have built into my Note 4

£79 replacement finger...
Out of stock
Tried this out in a store the other day, works better than any of the other premium stylus' out there made for the iPads, but still have problems with palm interference. Maybe one of those drawing gloves are needed. Price is steep for what it is, and requires the iPad Pro.

I think his point at the time was other devices required the use of a stylus, whereas the idevice screen were far more sensitive and the OS is tuned to work with your fingers.

The Pencil is for graphic designers or creative types who want the higher definition lines that only a stylus can provide.

It's still too damn expensive however.
I do agree the price is expensive, however with these been OOS at apple and delayed till after christmas, anyone wanting one of these, its the best chance to get one
Plenty of people on this thread are stating that it isn't like the stylus you get free with Samsung or Microsoft but aren't telling people why? X)

Me thinks it's just exactly the same but it's not the same because it has an apple logo on it meaning they can rip off their hapless followers.

Btw, I own Microsoft, Apple and Samsung devices so not bias.
Idiotic sheep

Ordered. Now need to save up for the IPad.

From the Apple site:

Highly responsive. Virtually no lag.
The lightning-fast responsiveness of Apple Pencil separates it from other creative tools. That’s because its latency — the tiny delay between when you begin drawing and the time it appears on the screen — has been reduced to an almost imperceptible level.

iPad Pro knows whether you’re using your finger or Apple Pencil. When iPad Pro senses Apple Pencil, the subsystem scans its signal at an astounding 240 times per second, giving it twice the data points it normally collects with your finger. This data, combined with Apple-designed software, means that there are only milliseconds between the image you have in your mind and the one you see on the display.

Draw lines of any weight. Just apply pressure.
Within its slender case are intricate and accurate pressure sensors, capable of measuring a range of forces. The carefully positioned sensor determines precisely how hard the tip of Apple Pencil is being pressed down. Press harder to draw thicker lines. Or use a gentle touch for wispy hairlines. The variety of creative effects is virtually limitless. Which means you are as well.

Add shading with a tilt of the hand.
Two tilt sensors built within the tip of Apple Pencil calculate the exact orientation and angle of your hand. As you naturally write or draw, the relative positions of each of these sensors can be detected by the Multi-Touch display. So you can create shading effects simply by tilting Apple Pencil the way you would a charcoal or conventional pencil.

Sounds the same as the surface ones and any other stylus that has been around for years including a ps2 stylus and tablet I had on my pc around 15 years ago when I dabbled in desktop publishing.

May well be. I don't own either of them, just answering your earlier question.

The Microsoft surface Pen is around £45 though from Microsoft if someone needed one (and didn't get one with their tablet).

I thought Hot Deals was about telling someone about something that was cheaper/ in stock etc. This is voted cold because its expensive.Of course it's expensive but nearly missed deal as voted cold by nearly everyone and it's been oos everywhere. I love Apple,agree it's expensive but please don't vote cold just because of price. The op was only posting to tell us somewhere had it in stock. If us veggies voted cold on every meat deal,those deals would never get off the ground.Please don't shout at me.I'm a teenager:(
Way better deal here Apple Pencil X)

£79 replacement finger...



If this is something apple has designed after the finger, I wonder if they had the middle one was what apple had in mind, as that is what they are going for in terms of the price. Funnily enough apple fans will be far too happy to bend over for it. I should know, I have an ipad pro.
bought my quad core 2gb ram lenovo tablet for less that the cost of this pen!
For those who think it is just a ridiculously priced piece of plastic, it really isn't. I too was sceptical about the marketing guff, but after managing to get one recently it genuinely has a great usage. It is aimed at graphics designers without doubt, but it does complete the iPad pro, more so than the keyboard I think. Yes, I agree with others who think it should have been bundled, but it's an accessory. How many people have no interest in drawing and editing photos down to pixel level on their iPad. As with everything Apple, it's dear, but it works and has turned my pro into a full on graphics editor. I paid £400 for an intuos graphics tablet and couldn't get used to it as you can't see what's on your screen. A cintiq (next level up where you draw on screen) was well out of my reach. The iPad pro and the pencil mean I don't have to buy a cintiq and I can do photo editing on the train. I know everyone hates Apple on this site but if you genuinely take the time to try this stuff out rather than bleat about how Samsung is so much cheaper you might find yourself liking some of it! Oh, and as for why this is a deal if they have them. Apple don't (?!?!) and the only place to find them is eBay at around double the price, so heat from me! If I hadn't got one I'd be straight on it!
