The Apple Pencil gives your iPad a whole new lease of life. Not only brilliant for sketching and note-taking, it allows you to supercharge your digital art. This is why we were delighted to find out the first-generation Apple Pencil is on sale for its lowest price ever in the UK – down from £99 to just £69.97 right now at Amazon

Though we do see the Apple Pencil on sale from time to time, we haven't ever seen it plummet like this. And given the first-gen Pencil works on a massive range of iPads (just not the new iPad Air 2020 or some of the iPad Pro line), it may be well worth you saving the money and getting the first-gen model.

Beyond compatibility, the Pencils' feature sets are surprisingly similar, with the only real differences being the flat-edge design of the Apple Pencil 2 and the enhanced storage and magnetic charging function. Find out more in our Apple Pencil vs Apple Pencil 2 comparison guide.

This is the cheapest price we've seen the first generation Apple Pencil sell for. The first-gen Pencil is ideal for working on a range of iPads. The only major downside is that it doesn't magnetically attach to your iPad like the Apple Pencil 2.

This is a small saving, but not one to turn down if you can't resist buying the Apple Pencil right away. With compatibility with a wide range of iPads, it isn't that different to its newer sibling the Apple Pencil 2 in terms of performance, and it's a lot cheaper.
