The best Apple Pencil grips make it easier to hold your stylus firmly, and that makes them a must-have for anyone making art on the iPad. Don't get us wrong: we're huge fans of the Apple Pencil; it's quite simply the best stylus for digital drawing and painting we've experienced to date. But that doesn't mean it's perfect. One of the downsides of its super-sleek design is that many artists find it can be a bit, well, slippery in use. 

Thankfully, the best Apple Pencil grips offer a straightforward workaround. Just slip them around your Pencil and you'll be able to hold it more naturally. This will allow you to make marks more effortlessly, and also reduce the amount of strain on your wrist and hand during long drawing sessions.
