Apple Pencil Review
Apple introduced the Pencil to give you even greater precision, expanding on the versatility of Multi-Touch. The Pencil can be used for numerous effects, giving you more creative freedom with your Apple device’s. The latency between the time you begin drawing and the time it appears on the screen has been reduced to a incredibly minimal level, giving Apple’s pencil an edge against other creative tools. Beyond lightning-fast, millisecond responsiveness, the Pencil can tell whether you’re using your finger or the Pencil due to the subsystem scanning the signal at 240 times per second, giving it twice the data points.
The Pencil also features two tilt sensors in the tip which can calculate the exact orientation and angle of your hand. As your naturally draw or write, the relative positions 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. Better yet, the new iPad Pro is designed with palm rejection technology, so you can rest your hand on the iPad screen, without worry, while you use the Apple Pencil.
The Apple Pencil features a slip-off magnetic cap that reveals a Lightning connector, this connector can be plugged into your iPad Pro to charge. The connector features a slightly elongated design so that charging is even possible when your iPad is inside a case. A full charge offers 12 hours of scribbling, sketching, annotating and editing.
The Apple Pencil is available for £79.00 and is a great light-weight accessory for those interested in artistry, it also works well with a variety of applications, particularly Adobe Sketch and Abode Draw.
