    Kind of sad that the Apple Pencil 2 is more expensive and they didn’t put an extra tip in. Honestly since they didn’t need to include the charging adapter.
    , I was hoping they would include 2 tips...

    I noticed that as well. Honestly though I've had my first Pencil for 2 years and haven't had to even consider using the spare. I'd be curious to hear if others had to though

    I have 12 of them rattling around in my desk drawer. Never needed to use one.

    Agreed. Like many I don't like the feel of the tip on smooth glass so I use a matte screen protector to give it a little 'tooth'. Maybe a tip with a little more tug to it that we could swap out would have been a nice addition.

    If there was a market for different tips I’m guessing someone would have kickstarter’d it by now?

    I saw a review where they visited a professional cartoonist from some big paper or magazine and she uses hers every day and said it felt like the new one had more pull and felt more like a real pencil than before. This makes me wonder if the tips will wear faster now due to an increase in friction. I’m a light Pencil user (honestly mostly because it dies all the time attached to the side of my iPad because it tries to auto connect sensing the display) but mine has been fine for the past year and a half. I can definitely see myself becoming a more moderate user of the new one combined with moving up in size to 12.9”.

    I am a veterinary student, and write a
    considerable amount. I’ve gone through 3 tips in 2 years.

    I believe this is the review you are talking about. Skip to 5:37.

    I’ve used 3 in the last 18 months. Oh well. Another reason for me to stay with 2017 10.5 and original pencil.

    I'm going to guess that the vast majority of tips were thrown out with the packaging - few people outside of the Apple forums seem to have any idea one was included since it was a tiny white object held in a chunk of white plastic in the box.

    I've not gone through a single tip yet despite fairly heavy use over the past couple of years.
