05:42 – Final Thoughts
Typically the new iPad Pros require the 2nd generation pencil that is double the cost of this one.
The Crayon functions largely the same as the actual Apple pencil, featuring the same low latency and wrist detection. As someone who’s been using the Apple pencil for the last couple of years this felt very similar if not identical to the original’s functionality. This is using Apple’s pencil hardware which is better than the many capacitive based styluses out there.
The Crayon will mirror the Apple pencil’s ability to do an angled/tilted line in apps that support it but the Crayon does not support Apple’s pressure detection. The lack of pressure sensitivity means this is not a good choice for artists but it should function just fine for notetakers and children. I also like that it can be shut off to preserve its rechargeable battery.
Overall this is an excellent alternative to the Apple branded stylus. Here’s the full compatibility list:
iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd gen)
Model Numbers: A1876, A2014, A1895, A1983
iPad Pro 11-inch
Model Numbers: A1980, A2013, A1934, A1979
iPad Air (3rd gen)

  1. I ended up going to Best Buy and getting that $249 iPad…I mainly use it for gaming..considering getting the pencil or crayon but I dont know if I will use it enough to justify the cost….but I do use the iPad daily 🙂

  2. Thanks Lon. I bought this because of this review. I only do handwriting.

    Again, I think your disclosures about sponsors at the start of the video are great. They also have a singsong pattern to them, makes them not get in the way.

    Your reviews more than any other YouTube tech channel make me feel you are doing me a favour. Thank you.

  3. Can you do a video with any recommendations you have about securing qnap's & synology's against the new ransomware targeting them. While keeping Plex remote access in mind. Thanks Lon!

  4. Great review and cool Pencil. If it had pressure sensitivity then I'd say with its other features like power on button it would be better than the oem apple pencils! Since my daughter is 15 yrs old she likes the pressure sensitivity for her artwork. But the crayon defiantly is an option for people who don't need pressure sensitive pencils!

  5. This goes on sale for $49.99 from time to time on Amazon. I’d imagine maybe during Prime Day, it might hit that price again, so if you’re in the market for one, keep an eye out!

  6. We replaced our 3 kids (10,8,6) 2nd generation iPad minis with the new 9.7" iPads and got 1 of the Crayons for them to share. They love it, and are good about sharing it. My daughter, the youngest really uses it the most, she loves to color on her iPad.

  7. The Adonit Note is another option if you are an adult and don't want or like the Logitech Crayon shape and want something more traditional looking.

  8. Very good Review, but the Pressure Sensitivity of the original Apple Pen has always been one of it's major benefits over similar styli and is the reason why this crayon was already out of question for me when I looked into alternatives.
