FiftyThree's Pencil, a Bluetooth stylus originally developed to go along with their popular Paper drawing app, is now available directly from Apple. The accessory is available both on the Apple Online Store and in Apple Retail Stores, with a price of $49.95 for the graphite model, and $59.95 for the walnut. Pencil is currently available in retail stores in the U.S., Canada, U.K., and E.U., and it will soon have a wider rollout across the world, according to FiftyThree:
It's been quite a ride bringing Pencil to creators around the globe; first online and now in Apple US, Canada, UK and EU, with worldwide availability coming soon.
While Pencil originally launched only with support for FiftyThree's Paper, the company has since launched a Software Development Kit for the stylus, allowing developers to build in support for Pencil into their own apps.
