Everything about the Apple Pencil
The Apple Pencil has two generations. They look a little different, but they’re both used as a stylus. They are more accurate than a typical stylus and come with pressure and tilt sensors to reproduce your handwriting or draw complex shapes.
Apple Pencil has excellent application support. With iPADOS 14 and later, you can handwrite in any text field and convert the handwritten content to text, so you can switch between note-writing, messaging, and drawing without a keyboard.

Apple Pencil 1
