The Apple Pencil (first-generation) is the one additional expense I recommend to anyone getting a 10.2-inch iPad or using a previous generation iPad Pro. It's more than a stylus — it's the closest representation to an actual pen or pencil you can use with a tablet. Once you have your very own, you're probably going to want a case, a dedicated charger, and some other cool accessories to go with it. These are the best Apple Pencil (1st Gen) accessories.
Like a real pen
Make your best iPad stylus feel like a true luxury pencil, complete with that familiar hexagonal grip style of a standard pen, offering a stylish — and functional — way to improve your drawing and writing experience.
Power up simply
Charge your Apple Pencil with your iPad but without it having to stick out awkwardly from the Lightning port. This little dongle keeps your Apple Pencil's Lightning plug from accidentally breaking off on your iPad.
Stolen pen clip
If you just want to accessorize your Pencil with a clip, consider skipping the expensive "Made for Pencil"-brand accessories and pilfer the clip off of a similar-bodied pen, like the Pigma Micron.
If you love your iPad's case but curse the fact that it lacks a place for the Pencil, Twelve South has a magnetic sleeve so you can keep it nearby and not worry about losing it.
Keep it simple with this silicone magnetic jacket for your Apple Pencil. You can attach it to your iPad's built-in magnetic zones on the top or side, so it's always right there when you need it.
Strap this stretchy sling right over your iPad or folio cover and have easy access to slip the Apple Pencil right out of the pocket without missing a beat.
This aluminum dock is a perfect addition to your workspace. It holds your pencil vertically and fits around your charging cable nicely. It stops your cord from tangling up and keeps the Pencil in sight.
Finding the best Apple Pencil accessories
Your Apple Pencil is an accessory to your iPad, but that doesn't mean you can't have the best Apple Pencil (1st-Gen) accessories for your accessory. My personal favorite is the Ztylus Metal Protective Case because it feels so comfortable to hold and is stylish too!
If you're worried about those infamous disappearing caps, we recommend the Fintie Cap Tether as a great choice to keep your workspace organized. The above choices will ensure your Apple Pencil stays safe and in perfect condition from charging to protection.
