If you've got an iPad, then to make the most of it you'll want an Apple Pencil. I personally use the Apple Pencil 2 with my iPad Pro (2021, 11-inch, thanks for asking), and I've just got my hands on the new Apple Pencil USB-C to use with a 2022 iPad Air, which I'm very excited about.

Now, looking for money off the Apple Pencil can sometimes feel like a fruitless endeavour, there isn't really much to shout about. But I'm here to tell you about the best deal I've found, $40 off the Apple Pencil 2, taking it down to $89. Plus a few others, see below.

The Apple Pencil 2 is the must-have accessory for the iPad. It has pressure sensitivity, making it ideal for drawing, and it's great for note-taking too. The lowest price we've ever seen is $82 so $89 is not far off!

Save $25.83: The first Apple Pencil is compatible with some of the older iPad models, including the iPad (6th-10th gen) and the iPad mini (5th gen). Note that it charges via a Lightning port and is therefore easier to lose than the Apple Pencil 2.
