Apple’s latest addition to its arsenal of creative tools, the Apple Pencil Pro, doesn’t just bring new features; it redefines the unboxing experience with its vibrant and artistic packaging.

Unlike its predecessors, the Apple Pencil Pro comes in five different packaging designs, each showcasing the word “Pro” in a unique style. The packaging design is a departure from the simple product shots seen on previous Apple Pencil boxes. Now, the product artwork is surrounded by actual art, reflecting the device’s capability to inspire and facilitate artistic endeavors.

When you purchase an Apple Pencil Pro, you’ll receive one of the five box designs at random. The top of each box features a photo of the Apple Pencil Pro, with the word “Pro” intricately woven around it in different styles. This adds an element of excitement to the unboxing experience, as you won’t know which design you’ll get until you open the box.

For collectors, the five different box designs offer an opportunity to create a unique collection. However, if you want to collect all five designs, you’ll need to purchase multiple Apple Pencil Pro units.

Key features of the Apple Pencil Pro

The Apple Pencil Pro introduces several features designed to enhance your digital drawing and writing experience in ways that feel natural and intuitive.

One such feature is Rotation Detection. Imagine holding a traditional pen; you can effortlessly rotate it to find the perfect angle for your strokes. The Apple Pencil Pro replicates this experience thanks to a built-in sensor. Simply rotate the Pencil to achieve the ideal angle for shading, writing, or any other artistic endeavor.

Disrupting your creative flow is a thing of the past with the Squeeze Gesture. A pressure-sensitive area on the barrel allows you to trigger a tool palette with a simple squeeze. Need to switch between a brush and an eraser? Change line weight or color on the fly? The Squeeze Gesture empowers you to do all this without taking your hand off the Pencil, keeping you immersed in your work.

The Apple Pencil Pro doesn’t stop there. A custom-engineered haptic engine provides subtle taps to confirm your actions. Ever double-tapped to switch tools but weren’t sure if it registered? The haptic feedback provides a reassuring confirmation, making the digital experience feel more natural and intuitive.

Finally, the Apple Pencil Pro incorporates a gyroscope, allowing for even greater control. By simply rolling the Pencil, you can adjust the orientation of the shaped pen and brush tools. This lets you achieve precise strokes that mimic traditional pen and paper techniques, further blurring the lines between the digital and the physical world.

Compatibility and release

The Apple Pencil Pro is compatible only with the new M4 iPad Pro and M2 iPad Air models. Unfortunately, it won’t work with older iPad models, so you’ll need to upgrade if you want to take advantage of its features.

You can pre-order the Apple Pencil Pro now on for $129, with store availability set for May 15th.
