Amazon is offering the first generation Apple Pencil for $79.88 shipped. Take note that shipments are currently delayed by two days. Today’s deal is $15 to $20 off what retailers like Walmart are charging and beats the lowest price we have tracked at Amazon by $10. Whether you need to handwrite notes or draw a digital masterpiece, Apple Pencil is a solid way to handle either of those tasks on an iPad. Compatibility spans latest 9.7-inch iPad along with all previous generation iPad Pros. If you run out of power while using Apple Pencil, it can simply be plugged into the Lightning connector along the bottom of an iPad for about 15 seconds to gain an incredible 30 minutes of usage time. If you’ve been on the fence about picking up an Apple Pencil, lock in today’s discount and take it for a spin.

While most love the Apple Pencil, many find the completely round form-factor to be inconvenient since it can roll away when set on even a slightly uneven table. To remedy this situation I recommend you pick up a Magnetic Sleeve for $12. Not only will it provide a ridge that will keep it from rolling away, it will also snap onto the front of your iPad, making it much easier to take with you.

Apple Pencil features:

  • The Apple Pencil expands the power of iPad Pro and iPad (6th generation) in productive new ways.
  • Easily write, mark up, and draw with pixel-perfect precision.
  • Nothing else feels more responsive and natural.
