How to Use Your Pencil

Pencil is great for sketching, drawing, and taking notes on your iPad or iPhone. Here’s how to get started.

With the introduction of the new iPad Pro and the second-generation Apple Pencil, there are now three different ways that you can use Apple’s stylus with your iOS device. The new Pencil 2 attaches magnetically to the side of your iPad Pro and charges wirelessly, while the original Pencil attaches to the charging port on the bottom of your iPad and charges via Lightning cable.

The newer model also features some significant improvements over its predecessor in terms of responsiveness and function, making it the best choice for artists and other creative professionals who want the most precise and accurate stylus experience possible. However, if you’re just looking for a good general-purpose stylus for taking notes or doodling in apps like Paper by FiftyThree, the original Pencil is still a great option.

Here’s everything you need to know about using Apple Pencil with your iPad or iPhone.

How to connect and set up your Apple Pencil
Whether you have the original Apple Pencil or the new model, connecting it to your iPad is a pretty straightforward process:

1. Turn on your iPad Pro and launch settings app
2. Tap Bluetooth and make sure that it’s turned on.
3. Uncap your Apple Pencil and plug it into the Lightning connector on your iPad Pro Regnskab . When you see the Pair button, tap it. If you don’t see the Pair button, wait 20 seconds or so and then try again — sometimes it takes a moment for everything to initialize properly.
4. Once it’s been paired, uncap your Apple Pencil and hold it close to the screen of your iPad Pro . A circle with a dot in the center should appear onscreen; touch that with the tip of your pencil Regnskab to complete calibration (if it doesn’t appear after a few seconds, move your pencil closer to or farther away from the edge of the screen until it does).


Once you know how to properly connect your Apple Pencil to your iPhone, the process is relatively simple. First, make sure that your Apple Pencil is properly charged. Next, unlock your iPhone and open the Notes app. Once the app is open, tap the “+” icon in top right corner of the screen. A new note will appear on the screen. At the bottom of the new note, you will see a tab that says “Drawing.” Tap on this tab and then select “Apple Pencil.” Your Apple Pencil should now be connected to your iPhone.
