    Loving it so far. Having so much screen 'real estate' is an absolute bonus.....lovely for reading and videos. It still feels a bit strange carrying it around though, feels a bit more like a laptop in that respect. It's so fast as well....my old iPad Air would take an age to open-up my large iTunes library over Home Sharing, but this beast does it in a few seconds!! Haven't used the pencil a great deal yet, but I am looking for a website mockup app that will hopefully make use of it, and I will certainly use it for note taking at client meetings. Charging it by sticking it into the end of the iPad is a bit of a pain, but it only takes a few minutes to fully charge. They do supply an adaptor to charge it over USB but that's a bit fiddly as well, as you have to take the little end cap off, put the adaptor on, charge it up, put the cap back on assuming you haven't lost it, and then find somewhere to store the little adaptor!! It would also be good if the pencil had an indicator light to say if it's fully charged or not....as it stands you have to plug it into your iPad and swipe to the notification screen to see the battery charge widget. Anyway, minor gripes, as the iPad itself is an abolute beast....and can only get better with iOS11

    The pencil doesn't have to be plugged into the iPad just to check the battery remaining. Granted after turning the iPad off and back on you have to insert the pencil till it reconnects to the iPad and you can see that as the Bluetooth indicator flashes in the upper right corner of the iPad. But anytime throughout the day you can just swipe down on the notifications bar to check the battery level.

    No I haven't tried that but I have this one pictured below ordered and it should still fit in my pencil loop on my keyboard case.

    The "Apple Pencil Cozy" from Amazon works well

    Thank you for the infos. I'm seriously contemplating getting a pencil but the top being so easy to fall was putting me off .

    I'll second the Apple Pencil Cozy. I orderd one, then immediatelhy lost the cap, before the Cosy arrived. Fourtunately the cozy does a decent (if not perfect) job of acting as a cap.

    As for the awkwardness of charging an Apple Pencile from the iPad, I believe this is the best of several choices. It's not the most elegant looking solution, but it does insure that you never have to worry about whether you charged the Pencil or not. If you have it with you, you can use it.
