    Question Do you use your Apple Pencil or is it just collecting dust?

    Can't decide if I want to spring for the Apple Pencil or not.

    Do you use your Apple Pencil or is it collecting dust?

    I sprung. I'm using it a lot. I got it for college classes though, so it'll be used quite extensively.

    I don't think I've used mine in 6 months. At least.

    Whenever I'm using my iPad Pro, I also use my Pencil 99% of the time. It cost too much for me to not use....

    To the OP, what is your primary purpose? If you are artistic in nature, I would suspect you would use it most of the time, but if you are just web browsing and emailing, probably not so much.

    It looks like a dust collector to me. Fun for a day or two. Still think I'll get one.

    I bought one at launch. Since I use my iPad Pro primarily for studying and annotating PDFs, I use the Pencil every day. No other Bluetooth connected stylus comes close to it. It's magic.

    I use mine quite a bit for notes and general things, not for any artistic purposes.

    I purchased mines back in late October. I decided to purchase it to use the iPad to annote PDF files and take notes for work. I used it extensively and then decided to start journaling on the iPad as well. I am currently on leave of absence at work so I haven't used it much recently within the last month or so, I'm still trying to make the habit to write in my journal more often than not. I know that once I get back to work I'll be back to using it almost every day of the week.

    Bought mine with the 9.7" pro in March 2016. Returned it a week later. Than bought it again in May 2016. Just sits there now unless my daughter uses it to color. Haven't used it on the big pro yet.

    Dumb question: Can you use the pencil with 6s plus iPhone or just the tablets?

    I use mine all the time: I use it on maps to plan hikes and trips, I take notes, draw diagrams, and I even use it to make anti Trump memes to make my man laugh. I once forgot it at our vacation home, couldn't bear to wait until I went back to retrieve it so I bought a 2nd one. I love my Apple Pencil.

    Mine isn't dusty but it doesn't get much love. I use it to draw diagrams at work during meetings, but that doesn't happen very often. My daughter uses it to have us electronically sign her orchestra practice charts for school through google classroom. That works well. In hindsight, I probably didn't need to drop all that cash on something that isn't frequently used.

    I hear ya. I know I didn't need to, but since I did, I use the heck out of it - even if only as an expensive stylus...

    Maybe the Apple Pencil 2 will be more exciting?

    I first got my Apple Pencil December 2015. So for over a year now. I never figured how it could serve me or make my iPad experience better. I switched from iPad Pro 12.9 to 9.7 back in July. Not sure I have even paired it to the 9.7 yet.

    I never even bought a pen. Mostly it can be used for drawing and opening apps and writing and a few other things. If I could use it to make screen caps like I can do on my Surface Pro 3 or Note 5, I would have bought it. I have no use for the pencil on an iPad.
