Like I said, the pens range from $60 to $250 (though this one is on the cheaper side), and the iPad lacks anything like this, which is what I've been saying. The iPad has nothing like this, so they made one.

if you bothered to take a look at some of the brands I mentioned instead of mindlessly thumbing my comments down then maybe you'd realise that none of those are new features - no innovation from apple at all.

Apple did a good job with the tilt feature, but the price they're offering allowed Wacom to beat them by simply releasing a new version of their existing stylus, for a cheaper price.

I haven't been thumbing you down... But as somebody who draws on the iPad on occasion, no, those features don't quite exist/they don't work as well as you think they do for the iPad. On other drawing devices, sure, but not for this specific product.

that's the thing - the apple 'pencil' is overpriced. if you want to draw, buy a cheap £5 bamboo stylus. if you want finer lines, buy a slightly more expensive stylus with a sharper point. apple aren't 'innovating' here.

I haven't got anything against apple. The new beats headphones are pretty nice - much better than the shitty old generation. The pencil is bullshit.

Well, I guess that's your opinion. They did innovate by making the pencil sense pressure, tilt, have your hand on the screen at the same time, etc... But it has a apple logo, so "that's not innovating". Like I said in the beginning, nobody will listen anyways, so don't worry about it. I'll take my red thumbs, and you'll get your green. I just always think people should be more open minded about things.

Those graphic tablets are different, since the surface is used as a replacement for the original screen. The ipad stylus uses the ipads touch screen, therefore doesn't need a replacement surface.

All you need to make a stylus (without apple's added features) is a little stick & some conductive thread for the touch screen.

But that's the thing. It's a DRAWING pen. You can make or buy a cheap pen, sure, but it won't be as precise as a pencil made specifically for drawing. Lot's of people draw on the iPad, so they created a product to appeal to that market, what's so wrong about that? Everyone always has such a blind hatred for Apple that when they make something, the internet boos it into existence. Why can't we just let them be? If you think their product is overpriced, don't buy it. They're not forcing you to, so how does it affect you? Because it exists, and that's wrong?
