Apple makes some of our favorite tablets for creatives and, if you want to unlock their full potential, you’ll want to pair them with an Apple Pencil. Apple’s sleek and advanced styluses are designed specifically for the iPad, and offer seamless connectivity and pin-point precision. Right now, you’ve got a rare chance to snag one at a discount.
Amazon is currently offering $20 off the first-gen model and $40 off the second-gen model, dropping prices down to $79 and $89 respectively. These are some of the best Apple Pencil deals we’ve seen, with close to all-time low pricing for both models. There’s no set expiration for these deals, so be sure to get your order in soon if you don’t want to miss out on the savings.
If you have an entry-level iPad or an older iPad Pro, you’ll probably need the first-gen Apple pencil, which is compatible with these Apple tablets (you can see the full list of compatible models here). Originally released in 2015, the original Apple Pencil still boasts some impressive tech, including sensitivity to pressure and tilt, extreme precision and almost nonexistent lag. This deal also comes with the USB-C adapter, which is required to pair to select iPad models.
The second-gen Apple Pencil is designed for the latest iPads (you can see the full list of compatible models here), and makes some slight improvements on its predecessor. This model magnetically attaches to the iPad for convenient wireless charging. This second-gen model also supports the new “hover” feature found on the latest iPad Pros, which tracks the pencil tip at close range, before you make contact with the screen. This is just $4 more than its all-time low price.
