Apple Pencil 1st Generation Review

Apple Pencil 1st Generation Review


Hi everyone! I’m back again with another article. One thing I want to try these past few months is drawing. One of the best devices to draw on with amazing apps, a great OS system, and kid friendliness is the Ipad! But it is better to draw with a tool. That’s why I picked up the Apple Pencil 1st generation for my mom’s Ipad mini 5. It’s been about 2 months and it is amazing! I drew a mountain landscape with an apple pencil for the first time (it actually looked good)! It also has this really cool scribble to text feature where, for example, you go to Safari and you search something. Use your Apple Pencil to write in the search box (most search boxes support this feature) and write what you are looking for. This has improved my handwriting (go check out Lela’s article on how to improve handwriting here and why you should learn calligraphy here.) and my penmanship.


  • Easy and simple to use

  • Comes with charging adaptor and extra tips for the pencil

  • Pairs easily

  • Kid Friendly

  • Comfortable


  • Pricey

  • No easy storage method

  • Weird charging if you don’t use the adaptor.
