Finding a good Apple Pencil deal isn't always easy. Certainly, you’re unlikely to see a cheap Apple Pencil on sale in the Apple Store. But there are savings to be had, if you know where to look.
Apple’s sophisticated digital stylus is perhaps the most amazing consumer stylus ever designed. It’s fantastic to use, with pressure and tilt sensitivity making it quick and easy to sketch ideas, create stunning images, take notes and more.
However, if you’re already part of the Apple ecosystem, you’ll know that nothing comes cheap. That includes the Apple Pencil, which only comes bundled with the new iPad: if you want one for your iPad Pro you'll need to buy it separately.
Fortunately, we can help. We’ve compared prices from all over the world to bring you the very best Apple Pencil deals and discounts available right now.

What is the Apple Pencil used for?
The Apple Pencil is a versatile digital stylus pen that lets you take notes, sketch ideas, create illustrations and paintings, edit spreadsheets, annotate or mark up documents and more.
It operates like a traditional pencil, letting you vary line weight, create realistic and subtle shading, and produce a wide range of artistic effects with impressive accuracy. Drawing feels natural, with no lag to ruin the illusion – and setup is incredibly easy. Just pop the cap off to reveal a Lightning connector, and plug it into your iPad Pro. (That's also how you charge it.)
The Apple Pencil works with a range of art and design iOS apps including Adobe Draw and Sketch, Procreate, Affinity Photo and more.
