Amazon Prime members can pick up an Apple Pencil at its lowest ever price on the site as part of Amazon’s Cyber Monday promotions. The Apple official stylus drawing accessory is currently on sale at $84.99 shipped for Amazon shoppers with a Prime membership. Also at Target. At $84.99, that’s a $14 saving on its regular price. Apple Pencil works in concert with the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and 12.9-inch iPad Pro to offer the best available tablet drawing experience. Amazon customers love it, where it is a #1 best seller.
The Apple Pencil includes a variety of sensors and works in collaboration with the iPad Pro display to offer a realistic drawing experience.
The drawing stylus responds to pressure and tilt to recreate the inkwork of painting brushes, pens and more. The pinpoint edge provides more fidelity than what a finger can provide, making it an essential tool for artists who want to dabble in digital painting and drawing on their iPad.
Apple Pencil is also a great accessory for note-taking. With apps like Notability, Apple Pencil allows the user to make precise handwritten notes straight onto the screen.
The Pencil works in collaboration with the iOS software allowing users to rest their hand and fingers on the display whilst drawing and sketching with the Pencil tip. The iPad Pro uses advanced palm-rejection and other algorithms to ignore errant input.
Apple Pencil includes a built-in Lighting port in the cap to charge from an iPad directly on-the-go; 15-seconds of charging unlocks half-an-hour of active drawing time. The box also comes with a Lightning adapter if you prefer to charge with a cable.
At just $84.99, this is the lowest price we’ve seen for the Apple Pencil as a standalone item — albeit only available to Prime members.
