If you're an artist or an engineer and you have an iPhone, I consider you do use your Apple Pencil just on your iPad Pro 'to avoid royal pain in the art....'If you're an artist or an engineer and you use an iPhone, not having a usable stylus is a royal pain in the art....
Hmmmm... I screen print tees & have commissioned many pieces from graphic artists.If you're an artist or an engineer and you use an iPhone, not having a usable stylus is a royal pain in the art.
Mmmm, not true at all. The alternates seems to be of 2 varieties, either a soft rubber tip or a soft rubber tip with a metal mesh over them. The size of said tip has been going down over the past few years. They are uber cheap but one does need to get replacement tips (also pretty cheap) as they do need occasional replacing. The smallest of tips is very good for very good precision work.Prior to when the Apple Pencil came out, styluses either had a fine hard tip and were battery powered to activate the capacitive display of the iPad, or had a wide, rubber finger-shaped tip that was not accurate.
Hmm na mate, I'd say you're in the .1% of people that want a Stylus to be the PRIMARY input device for a phone.No one's asking for a pencil to drive an app. We want a pencil because it's a superior input device compared to a finger, at some tasks.
I respectfully disagree.I believe he was referring to interacting with the phone OS with a stylus which is not accurate as some of those phones I believe permitted to be interacted with finger touch input. Steve Jobs was quite clear in his explanation and reasoning that no one wants to pull out a stylus and put it back in for storage and loose those things, yuk. That is a far deviation of an explanation as to your interpretation. I recommend you review that keynote again as to refresh your memory.

Ive been a Wacom fan until the Intuos 5. Seemed like I was paying for the same thing over and over until an OSX update broke the drivers.The Apple Pencil and iPad Pro are an astoundingly good toolset for an illustrator. Do I prefer drawing on my gigantic desktop Cintiq tablet? Yes.
Lol I hope I didn’t misunderstand this comment. It’s Apple’s marketing not mine, I quite frankly don’t care what it’s labeled, just saying the monikers are inline with the laptops with the exception of Mini.Also your line about the iPad Pro being a computer...
It does not matter what he said neither of us is Steve Jobs, it’s his actions and mannerisms that speaks for itself. It could be a little bit of both of our interpretations.I respectfully disagree.
With what he said, To me I think it's clear that no one wants to pull out a stylus to USE the device for the majority of its basic functions.
For example, no one wants to have to pull out a stylus and use it while texting someone in the middle of the street. Or pulling out a stylus to dial a number. Or pulling out a stylus in the middle of the dance floor to save a contact. Almost ALL devices up until Windows CE 6 around the HTC Doopod days required a stylus as the UI was designed for one. Another factory is the screen technology at the time required a single small point of pressure to be applied, which again a stylus works well for.
You're not likely to loose the stylus if you are using it survey a construction site or you're using it to draw. These are application specific examples and a stylus is fine. On the other hand, if a stylus was the primary input the UI required, you are very likely to have it pumped out of your hand when in the subway peak our rush, or in the street, or at a concert etc.
Again to my original point, people just don't get what his trying to say.
No, I understood what you we saying in that its Apple advertising it... That's what I find funny!Lol I hope I didn’t misunderstand this comment. It’s Apple’s marketing not mine, I quite frankly don’t care what it’s labeled, just saying the monikers are inline with the laptops with the exception of Mini.
Should just relabel the Mini as iPad and then Air and Pro.
Laptop should be labeled MacBook (ARM), Air and Pro.
Keep it clean and easy for the customer, Apple seems to have moved away from this mindset for product offerings. Some warranted at the time but now, sheesh.

You forget that Apple had the Newton that used a stylus, I remember a friend having a Palm V and I believe I used a stylus and finger input with that device. The stylus permitted an option for finer details like writing notes or drawing. You also forget that most phones like BB and CE based had physical keyboards and navigation buttons as well, no need for stylus.
For it’s time the stylus was provided for free, unlike the Apple pencil and input was via stylus, finger and keyboard with nav buttons.
Jobs was a master salesman he made stylus seem outdated and it was the right time as people were looking for a new market broad usable product. Touch screen was it. Nothing more or less, Apple could have easily had stylus support at the time and permit users to decide, but it was to force change and then reintroduce it later, brilliant marketing strategy.
That's one good thing about the Surface. Other than the Surface Pro 1 and 2 the pens can be used on any Surface (backwards and forwards compatible)I just wish the Pencil 2 still worked with the iPad, I have an iPad and an iPadPro and I just want to be able to use my AUD$200 Pencil on both. I don’t care that it can’t charge on the iPad.
Where did you hear this? This has not been my experience at all. I'm a very light pencil user and just paired it the other day for the first time in at least 2 months. The battery was still at 54% and I charged it to 100% and used it for a little while. This morning it's still at 94%. In other words, my battery is fine with sitting unused for long periods.They forgot to mention that if one does not use Apple Pencil 1, for a couple of months, the battery very likely goes kaput and there is no way to replace it. So basically yet another unecological product from Apple.
