Digital artists, or those who would like to be, can pick up an Apple Pencil 2 for a whopping $40 off the usual price. That’s a 31% discount.

I use this stylus with my iPad all the time, and there’s no better tool for painting on your tablet. It’s also great for taking notes and sketching out ideas.

Apple Pencil 2 is the best iPad stylus

There are plenty of well-designed styli available, but — no surprise — none can match all the features of Apple’s own.

Most notably, it has pressure sensitivity, a feature almost no rival can boast of. This lets you, for example, paint a darker shade simply by pressing harder on the screen. Exactly what pressure sensitivity does varies between applications, but it’s something most digital artists need.

And Apple Pencil 2 has a lengthy list of other features. Just place it on the side of an Apple Pro or Air to charge it. It’ll cling there magnetically while getting wirelessly juiced up. Very few competing styli can do this.

Naturally, the Pencil does all the basics very well. It’s well suited for taking handwritten notes, whether in a meeting or in class. And it works well for Apple’s Freeform brainstorming app on your iPad.

Get Apple’s stylus at 31% discount

If you’ve been thinking about an Apple Pencil 2, you won’t find a better opportunity. It regularly sells for $129, but Amazon knocked $40 off the cost. That makes the stylus $89.

This version of the official Apple stylus works with the iPad mini 6, iPad Air (4/5), and all iPad Pro models launched in the last few years. On the newest M2-powered iPad Pro, you can hover the Apple Pencil 2 up to 12 mm above the display and the tablet will react to it.

Where to buy: Amazon

But this is a limited-time deal. Don’t wait.
