The Apple Pencil can be used whenever inspiration strikes. Use it to jot down notes, sketch, paint a watercolor, or design a building onsite. Certain apps and tasks, such as Keynote, emails, and screenshots, can be directly drawn in and marked up. When in use, press harder for thicker lines, lighter for thinner ones, and tilt for shading. You can even rest your palm on your iPad’s display and it won’t register it as a mark, so you can use it just like a pad of paper.
