    Howdy!

    Someone left a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Pen in my office, am wondering if there is any way to use it with an iPhone/iPad. I got it to pair with my iPhone but it doesn't do anything that way...

    Any apps that may use it? Just curious.

    The pen demand a special surface, and use Bluetooth 4.0 to transmit information to the tablet, and obviously, there is no device driver for the iPhone.

    For iOS, there is many Bluetooth + capacitive stylus on the market.
