Apple Pencil Gets Huge Discount This Weekend
Unleash your creative side with this great deal on Apple Pencils.
Apple's iPads are incredible platforms for creating digital art, especially if you're using the Apple Pencil. This high-tech stylus doesn't just look like a pencil, but operates and feels close to one as well. They're usually a pricy extra, but you can grab one at a steep discount through the holiday weekend at major retailers, including , , and .
Both generations of the Apple Pencil are on sale. The second-generation model is on sale for $89, down from its $130 retail price, which matches the best deal we saw during Black Friday last year. This edition of the Apple Pencil has a more modern shape and feel than its predecessor. The flat side design allows it to magnetically attach to your iPad, it recharges relatively quickly, and it has a very strong battery life.
The first-gen Apple Pencil, which has a rounder design, is available for $79, down from its usual price of $100. It's still a great tool for creating art on your iPad or using it to take notes. It's worth noting that this Apple Pencil works with a limited number of iPad devices, on the Apple site before making a purchase.
As for which programs work best with the iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil, there's a wide number of apps to choose from. Adobe's Fresco is a powerful suite of illustration tools that offers a free and limited version that you can try out, but the go-to app for most artists is Procreate. Available for a once-off fee, this program features a very robust collection of sketching, drawing, and painting tools alongside more technical features and an intuitive user interface.
