If you're into Apple tech and digital illustration, then chances are you'll love this deal on the second-generation Apple Pencil, now only $79 at Amazon. That's an impressive $50 off the typical $129 price, and the cheapest we've ever seen our favourite iPad stylus listed for. 

This deal brings the price of the Apple Pencil 2 down to budget-friendly territory, making it the exact same price as the latest Apple Pencil USB-C. We think the budget USB-C Apple Pencil is a dealbreaker for artists, given the lack of pressure sensitivity.

Overview: We think the Apple Pencil 2 is the best of the bunch, with perfect precision, tilt, and pressure sensitivity to assist artists with their digital designs. If you only use your stylus for note-taking, that's fine too. But the second-gen Apple Pencil really shines when used for drawing.

Price history: The lowest price we've ever seen on the Apple Pencil 2 was $89 during Black Friday, and this latest discount beats that by a further $10. 

Current price: B&H Photo: $129 | Best Buy: $79

Review consensus: We reviewed the Apple Pencil 2 back in 2021 and while it's certainly similar to its predecessor in terms of design, it has a few tricks up its sleeve with wireless magnetic charging and quick tap controls making it a vast improvement on the original.
