New Apple Pencil 3 Arrives with USB-C Charging, Price Reduction, But No Pressure Sensitivity

Apple Pencil 3 price and release date

The brand new Apple Pencil costs “only” $79, a far cry from both the $99 tag of the OG Pencil, and of the second generation one that costs $129. For those who purchased the original Apple Pencil 1, an USB-C to Apple Pencil Adapter can be bought separately for $9.

Thankfully, the new Apple stylus does support some of the features of the Pencil 2, but those willing to splurge now that the Apple Pencil 3 price is lower will have to wait until its release in early November.

Apple Pencil 3 specs and features

  • USB-C charging
  • Low latency
  • Tilt sensitivity

Despite its USB-C port, the Apple Pencil 3 offers nearly the same weight and dimensions as the Apple Pencil 2, stretching at 7.5 x 155mm with a weight of 20.5 grams. As mentioned, there is a USB-C adapter for the first Apple Pencil, too.

Apple Pencil 2 vs Apple Pencil 3 features

  • No pressure sensitivity
  • No wireless charging and pairing
  • No double-tap to change tools
  • No engraving

At this low Apple Pencil 3 price, it does skimp on some features of its prior siblings in the line, though, such as pressure sensitivity. The Pencil 3 supports the hovering that the iPad Pro models with M2 chip introduced, as well as magnetic attachment to Apple’s tablets.

Apple Pencil 3 USB-C iPad model compatibility

  • iPad Pro (2018-2022)
  • iPad Air (2020-2022)
  • iPad mini (2021)
