Definitely nervous about trying the plus size, if I end up not liking it. Almost want to experiment, like get a cheap(?) 6plus from somewhere when the 8 comes out, and use it for a few weeks. But if the plus size offered pencil support, or this time I could say “oh the plus camera is REALLY worth it now” – maybe. Kirk
In terms of Pencil, I use it all the time with my iPad. I don’t take notes on paper, and I sometimes find reading a document and writing on it in pen easier than doing so via a computer and keyboard — and I turn to my iPad and Pencil.
In face, I use the Pencil so much that I ended up buying a second one on eBay, so that I have one on my desk and one in my bag for use when travelling.
Yes, I sound like a fanboy, but the Pencil is streets ahead of a normal stylus on an iPad (and I know, because I used those for years too). It really is just like writing on paper, and my handwriting is almost good enough for GoodNote’s writing-to-text conversion to work most of the time. (It’s recognition is not perfect, but it is definitely good.) Neil
So, if Apple released a pencil that worked naturally with an iPhone, would you use it? If, for example, your words could be translated to digital text and if the process was so good that it could be used in many different app.
Personally, I would see this as a big advantage, but suspect that the process of making something like this work acceptably on a phone would be very difficult.
