Today I spent most of the day visiting with Robin (my daughter) and she gave me an Apple Pencil to use with the iPad Pro . It looks like a white plastic pencil, and enables you to draw and write notes on the iPad easier, and is responsive to the lightness/hardness of how hard you touch it on the screen. I have been charging it up and reading a little bit more about how to use it and which apps it will work with; but so far I do not have any actual "hands-on experience" with the pencil. I know that many of us have ipads; but I have not seen any threads about the Apple Pencil , and thought I would start one. Here is a video that shows what it does and also some of the apps that it works with. I have the Procreate app to draw with ; but I have to practice using it more than I have done.
