Apple Pencil 3 price and release date
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.
