Now, I know why some of you guys that have other iPads besides the iPad pro would like to have the pencil; especially pencil support for the Air 3. For Microsoft office iOS apps, mouse support is something that's truly needed but the Apple pencil can do anything that a mouse can do for the most part. This was one of my complaints when I had an iPad Air 2 and when I would be using Microsoft office apps. With the Apple pencil on my iPad pro, my issues have been solved. If you want something close to true mouse support, get the Apple pencil and have an iPad pro. The Apple pencil is perfectly accurate at pointing to different text and highlighting items etc.
