The Apple Pencil is the best stylus for any iPad, whether it’s a first- or second-generation device. The Logitech Crayon is the only other option you should consider, and it is significantly less expensive. The Apple Pencil outperforms every other iPad stylus on the market in terms of pressure sensitivity, palm rejection, and tight interaction with iPadOS.
