1. Apple Pencil

iPad Apple Pencil

Apple Pencil is well known to all. You can get the best drawing and writing experience on your iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil. It’s sensitive to both pressure and tilt, letting you vary your line weights and shading in different apps. It also provides the best palm rejection technology ever seen for a stylus, letting you rest your hand on either the 9.7- or 12.9-inch iPad Pro screen with ease. Underneath the Pencil’s magnetic cap is a Lightning connector for easy pairing and quick-charging with your iPad; you can also connect the included adapter to charge fully via USB. The Pencil provides 12 hours of continuous battery life on a full charge, and is the best stylus you can get for the iPad Pro. You can buy Apple Pencil at Apple store and cost AUD $145.00

2. Adonit Mark

Adonit Mark

The Adonit Mark is a comfortable and inexpensive option for writing, drawing, and sketching. The mesh-based round stylus doesn’t have the fine control or app integration of the Pencil, but it still works well with most multi touch screens and provides enough resistance to write well without much aberration. The triangular grip sits nicely like an old charcoal stick in the hand, and though you can’t put your hand on the screen, the Mark provides a good counterweight so that the nib doesn’t slip on the glass screen while writing or drawing. You can buy this pencil from Adonit website online at US$9.99 or from Myshopping site at AUD$139.

3. Cosmonaut Wide-Grip Stylus

When capped, the Mini is only a few inches in length, but almost doubles in size when the cap is screwed on to extend the body. The disc shape makes it precise and easy to see what you’re writing or drawing, though you will get audible clicking noises from the disc and it can occasionally feel a little slippery on the iPad’s glass screen. You can buy Adonit Jot Mini Stylus at Adonit website at US$19.99 or at Myshopping site at AUD$39
