Apple's latest iPad Pro lineup is now complete with the addition of the new Apple Pencil. The stylus comes with a new charging case that snaps onto the side of your tablet and also doubles up as a stand for watching movies or FaceTiming someone. But does it need a cover?
If you want to keep your Apple Pencil safe in transit, it's worth investing in a case.
Apple Pencil 2 is a great tool for artists, designers, and note-takers. The small and lightweight design makes it easy to carry with you anywhere you go. But if you want to keep your Apple Pencil safe in transit, it's worth investing in a case.
Case: If you want to keep your Apple Pencil safe in transit or when not being used (because of its sensitive parts), it's worth investing in a case. Cases come with different textures and materials that can help protect the pencil from bumps or scratches during transport. With cases available for around $30, many people already have one for their original Apple Pencil—but if not then this is an extra expense that could be considered within the cost of buying an iPad Pro tablet with support for the new product line by itself (which starts at $799).
Is there a case for the new Apple Pencil?
Apple’s new Pencil 2 is not compatible with the first-generation Apple Pencil case. The best way to protect your new stylus, then, is by using the Apple Pencil leather case. It's available in black or brown and comes in a number of sizes that you can choose from according to your needs.
Where can I find a cover for my Apple Pencil 2?
You can find third-party cases for Apple Pencil 2 on Amazon, eBay and Stansets.com. To ensure that you’re buying the right case, compare the dimensions of your Apple Pencil 2 with those of any case you may be interested in to make sure they’re a good fit.
So, does the Apple Pencil 2 need a case?
If you're looking to keep your Apple Pencil safe in transit, it's worth investing in a case. If you want to protect your Apple Pencil from damage, it's worth investing in a case. And if you just want to keep your Apple Pencil looking good and avoid fingerprints and scratches, then again: invest in that case.
Apple has made its own cases available online and at its stores—they're available now for $29 (for the leather version) or $39 (for the fabric version). But there are plenty of third-party options as well—including one we like very much.
The Apple Pencil 2 case is available in a variety of colors, including clear and black. It's made from soft silicone that wraps around the Apple Pencil to protect it from scratches and other damage (and also from your pocket or bag). You can pick one up for $19.99 at Stantsets.com—or even cheaper with coupon code.
The Apple Pencil 2 is a great tool for artists and designers, but it's not the most rugged piece of technology. If you want to keep your Apple Pencil safe in transit or from the elements, then investing in a case is worth it.
