Do you really need to pay $150 plus for an Apple Pencil? This depends mainly on the intended usage. Watch my review of this affordable and excellent alternative at only $35. You may change your mind and get this Stylus Pen instead of Apple’s!
It is very well made, has a magnetic side to attach to your iPad and has a plastic tip, so it will not scratch your iPad.
Also, it has the most coveted feature for a stylus which is the Palm rejection technology and it really works well.
It is compatible with all iPads 2018 and above and comes in a stylish box suitable for a gift.
