If you’re a regular user of any of Apple’s best iPads you’re likely to find some companions in tools like the Apple Pencil. And there’s a great way to save on a new Apple Pencil right now, as Amazon has started releasing some of its Black Friday deals. These include both the original Apple Pencil and the Apple Pencil 2, each of which is seeing quite significant discounts. As for popular Apple products, their prices don’t often see such a big drop. You’ll get free shipping on the purchase of any of these Apple Pencils from Amazon, but act quickly, because there’s no telling when the Black Friday deal will end or when inventory will run out.
Apple Pencil (1st generation) – $79, was $99
Whether you use an older iPad model or a recently released one, the original Apple Pencil should get the job done. It has been around for some time, but its technology and features can generally meet the demands of the current model iPad. The original Apple Pencil offers pixel-perfect precision, tilt and pressure sensitivity and imperceptible lag. It tackles tasks like painting, sketching, doodling and taking notes with ease. It makes creating digital art feel like working with paper or canvas, and when it comes to using it as an iPad stylus it can usually be an upgrade to having it at your finger.
Apple Pencil (2nd generation) – $89, was $129
The Apple Pencil 2 is designed to capitalize on new iterations of Apple’s iPad lineup. It makes a great pairing with the larger form factor of the Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch, but it could also be put to good use with something like the Apple iPad Mini. It offers the same pixel-perfect precision, tilt pressure sensitivity, and imperceptible lag that you’ll find in the original Apple Pencil, but it adds some new capabilities to the mix. It has a flat edge that magnetically attaches to the iPad, and it is also capable of charging in this position. The Apple Pencil 2 is not backward compatible with all iPad models, so be sure to research compatibility with your iPad before purchasing.
