    Does the Apple Care I have on my iPad Pro cover the pencil? They did not ask if I wanted Apple Care on the pencil too. I haven't tried the other tip as it just happened, and I'm at work. Hoping I can just replace the tip. Is there any warranty on the pencil other than for manufacturer defects? I've had it for about month now. 😪

    Welcome to iMore! AppleCare+ isn't available for separately purchased accessories. But, as @eyecrispy recommended, take it into an Apple Store and see if there is anything they can do. Generally speaking, the limited warranty does not cover accidental damage (i.e. dropping it). Good luck!

    I doubt it covers the pencil but I'd bring it back to the store and see what they can do.

    Well, I guess I'm really stupid. I knew it came with an extra tip, but had forgotten about it. I just replaced the flattened one with the other one and all works fine. I also see that I can purchase more tips from the Apple Store. Thanks for the responses!

    It is most likely covered by Apple's standard 1 year warranty. If you have had it less than 1 year take it to an Apple Store and say it's not working anymore. They likely will replace it.

    For a $100 pencil you better hope there's a protection plan available.

    Lol, I've already dropped it again, but fortunately didn't land on the tip. Slippery suckers!

    Plan to just order some more tips. I think they come 4 to a pkg for $20 or something like that, which I didn't think was too bad for an Apple product. They didn't offer a protection plan when I bought it. They did on the iPad only. Nor did they offer one for the keyboard, which was what $149 I think.

    Good plan. Always have backups.
