Whether it’s turning your iPad into a handy notebook or using your tablet to create digital art, you can do it all with the Apple Pencil – and we’ve spotted it’s now at its lowest-ever price.

Reduced by nearly 30 per cent for a limited time only, you can snap up the sought-after accessory for less than £70 in Amazon’s spring sale.

Running until 31 March, the sale has seen the retailer slash its prices across tech, beauty, kitchen appliances and more, with savings to be had on big-name brands such as Samsung, Morphy Richards and ghd

It’s the perfect opportunity to invest in something you’ve had your eye on for a while – so far we’ve seen deals on everything from JBL speakers and ghd hair tools to L’Oréals bestselling wonder water and a Morphy Richards air fryer

Apple seldom offers savings on its products, so this deal on the Pencil really caught our eye. The discount is lower than those seen during both Black Friday and Cyber Monday, with the stylus now going for an impressive £69.97.

Unlike tablets from other brands, styluses aren’t included with the purchase of Apple iPads – so if you’ve been after the pencil for a while, there is no better time to purchase.

Apple Pencil (1st generation): Was £99, now £69.97,

Featuring all the precision and responsiveness of a traditional writing tool, the Apple stylus allows you to draw, take notes or simply navigate around your iPad with ease.

Perfect for the more creative Apple user, you can sketch, colour-in and edit images seamlessly with the stylus. Although we haven’t tested the device here at IndyBest, it’s been a go-to for digital artists and graphic designers since its launch five years ago.

Compatible with the latest Apple tablets – the iPad mini, iPad Air, iPad (6th generation) and the iPad Pro – this is the perfect time to invest in a useful accessory that will allow you to do more with your device.

Pair the Pencil with your iPad by removing the stylus’s cap and connecting it to your tablet’s lightning port. The Bluetooth-enabled pencil is perfect for artists, with its pressure sensitivity giving impressive accuracy.

The Pencil and compatible iPads have sensors that can detect the pressure you’re holding the stylus at, allowing you to draw and write with precision.

Both feeling and looking similar to a pencil, you can create natural-looking notes, illustrations and artworks using the Apple Notes app or utilising professional design applications such as Procreate and Adobe software.

The stylus looks just like a traditional pencil too, boasting a sleek and ergonomic design that feels comfortable in the hand, according to fans of the accessory.

The stylus is simple to charge – plug it into your iPad’s lightning port or use the adaptor. When fully charged the Pencil can last up to 12 hours.
