You can get the incredibly useful Apple Pencil 2 for its lowest price ahead of Black Friday. Amazon is taking $40 off the iPad accessory, dropping its price to $89.

The Apple Pencil 2 works with iPad Air, iPad mini 6, and iPad Pro to make note-taking and drawing a breeze.

Apple Pencil 2 is a must-have accessory for digital artists

If you use your iPad for studying or creative purposes, the Apple Pencil 2 is a must-have accessory. Using the stylus, you can draw sketches, take notes, and let your creativity flow freely. While you can find plenty of third-party iPad-compatible styluses, the Apple Pencil 2 stands out with pressure sensitivity support. You can simply press harder on the screen to paint a darker shade of the color you are using.

Using a finger tap gesture, you can switch between writing/drawing mode and the eraser. On the 12.9-inch M2 iPad Pro, you also get hover functionality using the Apple Pencil. Keep the stylus 12mm above the display, and the tablet will react to it.

Unlike some of Apple’s Mac accessories, the Apple Pencil 2 does not charge over Lightning. Instead, it tops up its cell magnetically when attached to the side of your iPad.

Save $40 on the Apple Pencil 2

Apple recently unveiled the USB-C Apple Pencil for $79. It is $50 cheaper than the Apple Pencil 2 but misses out on pressure sensitivity. But if you take advantage of Amazon’s latest deal, you can get the Apple Pencil for just $10 more, making it a no-brainer over its cheaper USB-C sibling.

This is the same all-time low price the Apple Pencil 2 was available during Black Friday 2022. And it should be available at a similar price point during the upcoming sale season. However, there’s no need to wait until then. A $40 discount means you can get the Apple Pencil 2 for $89, which is a fantastic deal that you should not miss.
