Alongside its range of new iPads, Apple revealed overhauled pencil today too. The Apple Pencil Pro has a new sensor in the barrel that picks up your squeeze. This action can do things like bring up tool palettes so you don’t have to touch them manually with your free hand. Apple says you can also use the gesture to activate shortcuts or other actions. What’s more, haptic feedback lets you know when a squeeze is accepted or when something you’ve moved has clicked into place. Apple also added a flip gesture “for precise control” of every tool you use, powered by a new gyroscope.

The new Apple Pencil works with Find My, so you’ll have extra help when you lose it. And as always, the new version still pairs, charges and stores magnetically on the iPad Pro. Apple says developers can make their own actions with the new gestures, so you can expect to see customizations based on the iPad apps you use. Apple Pencil Pro works with the new iPad Air in addition to the new iPad Pro, so you have multiple Pencil options for the more affordable iPad.

Apple Pencil Pro is $129 and is up for pre-order today. It will be shipped next week.
