    Actually I would be less interested in the new iPhone if it came with a stylus.

    The Apple Pencil is an option, not a necessity to use the iPhone / iPad.
    Therefore it shouldn’t matter if it came with it or not.

    No.
    If it was optional. Sure.

    But if the stylus came with it and/or would require extra room in the device then no it would matter.
    Don’t want to pay the added cost for something I’m never going to use on a smartphone.

    Nope. I’ll rather try Note 10, instead.
    Exactly, If iPhone has a pencil, I will quite

    Not really interested at all. If all the iPhones came with it but there was no required use, I’d put it in the drawer. If I left it with the phone I’d probably click it constantly and break the mechanism that holds it in place...that’s is under the thought it would somehow be in the phone and pop out like Samsung.

    On the other hand, if it’s just a new device capable of using the Apple Pencil, I’d still buy the phone, just wouldn’t buy the pencil.

    I have no use for a stylus so it wouldn't affect my buying decision at all. My main hope is that the smaller sized iPhone 11 has battery life similar to that of last year's XR. I loved the size of the XS but the battery life killed it for me. On the other hand, I loved the battery life of the XR but the size killed it for me. In the end, I went back to an iPhone 8.

    iPad, yes. Already have one.

    iPhone? Nope. Already use an ink pen with a stylus on the end and it works just fine.

    I think the iPhone is too small of a screen to do anything with a stylus. I also hated the stylus with my HP Windows PDA and Palm devices. The styluses were so easy to lose. Especially on my Palm Treo.

    Ah, another Palm Treo user! The Treo was the bee's knees when it came out. The first true convergence device for the rest of us that didn't get a corporate BlackBerry. And we could play Dope Wars!

    I have no use for a stylus on my iPhone. I used an Apple Pencil on an iPad to draw up a plan for a new deck and a new front porch, but I think it would have been easier to use a regular pencil and a piece of graph paper.

    I knew a couple Blackberry users who owned Palm Treos. Mine crashed or spontaneously rebooted at least twice a day, running the stock Verizon ROM with no other software. I longed for a simple generic Palm OS Garnet, without any Verizon bloat ware full of software conflicts.

    I curse the Palm Treo. Especially Palm Corp., who sold Palm OS Garnet to Access of Japan, then completey shutdown Access’s Linux Palm OS 2, in favor of Palm Corp.’s own WebOS.

    I'm locked in now for a couple of years with my iPhone 12 Pro. However, I will eventually need a new iPad, so I'll look forward to using an Apple Pencil then!

    This year is my upgrade year, so i'm getting a 13 Pro Max (or whatever they call it) anyway. I'd love Apple Pencil support too.

    I had a Palm Pilot back in the day, as well as an XDA, and they were fun devices. I even had a couple of Galaxy Notes too (3 and 7) and they were fine too.

    Before I came over to the dark side, I had the Samsung Note 2 and 3. Loved the s-pen. If Apple came out with something similar I may look into it. But an Apple Pencil is a little big to use on an iPhone.

    Probably not. I had the Note series years ago and never used the S-Pen

    No, I won't upgrade just for a pencil. Or much else. Really love my 12 Pro Max. After 8 months, the battery health is still at 100%. And I'm a heavy user. I doubt I'd use a pencil very much.

    I can’t see any use for an Apple Pencil with an iPhone. The screen is too small. The Apple Pencil isn’t a good fit for an iPhone.

    I wouldn’t use my Apple Pencil on my iPhone… There’s à size ratio that makes it look really awkward

    I can’t think of anything I could do on my iPhone with a pen/stylus that couldn’t be done just as well with my finger………….
    And it’s much more difficult to lose your finger, unless you’re very unlucky!
