APPLE PENCIL WANTS TO TAKE ON SAMSUNG’S S-PEN

 What do you do when Apple announces an Apple pencil? You write about it. Then because it’s so similar to Samsung’s S-Pen, you compare them.
So, the new S-Pen most recently arrived with the Galaxy Note 5. It came as stylus on the side of the smartphone and could be used on the Note 5 even when the display was off.

The Apple Pencil came along with the 12.7 inch iPad Pro that was just announced at their 2015 event today. Now here’s the annoying bit about the Apple pencil – you have to buy it for $99, which is approximately Rs. 5,000. It’s unfair, because they make an expensive iPad with this new stylus and then don’t even give you the full stylus in one set. It’s like buying an iPhone without the battery.

Moving on, we see that the Apple Pencil is charged by directly plugging it into the iPad Pro while the S-Pen is independent. The Apple pencil doesn’t really have a ‘wrong side’ either, so you can write using both side. Whereas, you can use the S-Pen only on the ‘right side’.
Now all we’re waiting for is to get our hands on the Apple ‘Stylus’ (and the iPad Pro) to tell you if it really lives up to the hype.
