Apple New Apple Pencil

Apple, on Apple Newsroom:

The new Apple Pencil is the most affordable model, making it ideal for everyday productivity and creativity. With USB-C charging and pairing, the new Apple Pencil is great for iPad (10th generation) users and also works with all iPad models that have a USB-C port, including iPad Pro, iPad Air and iPad mini.

Basically itโ€™s the Apple Apple Pencil (2nd generation) without pressure sensitivity, double-tap for switching tools and wireless charging. Ok, Iโ€™ll bite, having bought a few of alternative pencils without these features, itโ€™s a good compromise for a lower price.

The new Apple Pencil will be available for purchase separately for $79 (U.S), with availability beginning in early November.

Wait, what?! Go home Apple, youโ€™re drunk. The Apple Pencil 2nd Gen is usually found on Amazon for $89 , and generic pens with similar features cost half the new Apple Pencil.

Less difficult to recommend than the Apple Pencil (1st generation), but still hard to do with a straight face.
