    As stated in the thread title, would you consider purchasing one of the new iPhone models if it can be used with the Pencil?

    No. I barely use it with my iPad. I’m positive I won’t use it at all with my phone. The pencil would be ridiculous with the smaller X anyways (just my opinion).

    Before I gave my iPad Pro to my youngest son, I used the Pencil with it a good deal. The problem was that my use of the iPad Pro waned considerably once I got my work-issued MacBook Air. The MacBook Air made me realize how much I missed using my MacBook so shortly thereafter, I went out and purchased my current MacBook Pro. I still have the Pencil and after reading your reply, I grabbed it and started pretending that I was using it with my current iPhone X and for me, it's somewhat comfortable, but that doesn't mean I'd use it a good deal. Anyway, I appreciate the reply.

    Oh, I can totally see some people having a use for it. I want to use my pencil more with my iPad Pro but I can’t find a decent app for teaching a newbie how to draw.

    Nope. The pencil didn’t even entice me to get an iPad Pro.

    Nope, Apple would have to make a new Pencil that was more manageable with phones and a way to keep it with the phone for me to even consider it. Apple would basically have to create an iPhone Note.

    No. Wouldn't be useful to me and I don't want another thing to take care of.

    Nope. It’s too big to be used with the iPhone.

    I have no interest in using any type of stylus with a small device like iPhone (even a plus size one). I do not at all consider an iPhone as a "pocket computer" but rather a business and communication tool (YMMV of course). Beyond that, there are many choices of devices for movie watching, book reading (annotation), game playing, photo manipulation and graphic design etc etc., for which a stylus might be useful.
    About the only use of a stylus for iPhone that I can barely think useful would be jotting or quick note taking "if it can convert into texts".
    Remember Newton? It had actually a decent capability to convert handwriting into typed texts, and the stylus was just a thin plastic rod with no gimmick. Handwriting conversion apps were somewhat of a fad then, IIRC. Where did they all disappeared?
    But then, as others said, carrying an Apple stylus for occasional use would be a royal pain. I want a no frill, small pocketable phone. SE2......Apple?

    As noted above, the pencil would need to fit into the phone or have a well designed case that holds it to make it practical. In the latter, the pencil could still communicate/"stay in touch" with iOS via low energy Bluetooth or similar. If such a combination were available, I'd consider it.

    If the new iPhone models support the Pencil, will you consider buying one?-41lzydnahul._sl500_ac_ss350_.jpg

    Yes on the 6.5" especially.
    The Note 9 S-pen is amazing giving its remote control ability.
    Or just skip this cycle. iOS in general is feeling quite dated compared to the competition!

    I would love to have an iphone that incorporated the pencil like how Samsung has the Note with the spen. I miss the spen as I had mentioned before but NOT to the point that I would return to Samsung. I will not USE Samsung anymore. But I do love the pencil and wish APple would make it work with the iphone.

    I'm getting the largest screened version of the new flagship iPhone, whatever they decide to call it. No I wouldn't use my Apple Pencil with it. My Pencil for my iPad has such a laughably poor battery life that I barely use it for that anymore. I certainly CBA using it on a smaller screened iPhone.

    I don’t give much about the pencil. I’m gonna get a new iPhone anyway this year.

    Not this year if they come with Apple Pencil support. I love my XS Max and won’t be upgrading this year.

    I haven’t used my Apple Pencil with my iPad Pro in 7 months. I even forget I have it until I clicked on this thread.

    If Apple included their copy of an S Pen in their iPhones it would make the battery life even worse.

    Nope. Already using in ink pen with a stylus on the end. It does what I need it to do, when I use it.

    Nope. I’ll rather try Note 10, instead.
