Drawing, note-taking, and other tasks are often much easier with a stylus, making the Apple Pencil a welcome tool for iPad owners. It’s a precision tool with a pressure-sensitive tip that lets you write directly on the iPad’s display, without delay. And although it comes with a hefty price tag, you can find Apple Pencil deals if you shop.

Right now Amazon has a sale on First generation Apple Pencil at $29, bringing the price up to $70 for a limited time.

Apple Pencil can make many tasks much easier. For example, when your Apple Pencil is connected to your iPad, your device will only recognize the tip of your Apple Pencil. With features like palm rejection, you can write or draw without the distraction of your hand touching the screen. It also responds to pressure and tilt, which is great for artists dealing with things like shading on an image.

And marking up documents is also easy with Apple Pencil. Whether you need to highlight or underline something or need to sign something, this tool comes in handy. Plus, pairing is easy. Simply remove the cap and plug the accessory into the Lightning connector on your iPad. Once paired, it stays connected until you restart your device or pair the Pencil with another iPad. And charging the device is easy – just plug it into the Lightning port on your iPad. Fully charges in about 15 minutes.

The most important thing to do before making your purchase is to check compatibility because this nifty device won’t work on all iPads. This Apple Pencil is compatible with the following devices: iPad Pro 12.9-inch (1st and 2nd generation), iPad Pro 10.5-inch, iPad Pro 9.7-inch, iPad (6th, 7 8th, 9th generation), iPad Air (3rd generation) and iPad mini (5th generation). If you don’t have one of these models, you might want to check Apple Pencil 2which is largely compatible with newer iPads.
