When we reviewed the iPad Pro last month, we did so in a vacuum. Apple’s supersized tablet had beaten its accessories to our front door, so we reviewed only the device itself, reasoning that there were some people who would buy it for its built-in attributes alone. While it’s a fine product, with a huge screen that makes it especially good for media consumption, the iPad Pro still feels hollow without something more.

Fortunately for iPad Pro buyers, “something more” is just $99 away in the form of the Apple Pencil. The supersized stylus packs a built-in battery and Bluetooth radio into its glossy white fuselage, and it unlocks a whole new dimension of the tablet experience. The Apple Pencil is to the iPad Pro what 3D Touch is to the iPhone 6S: a feature that’s easy to dismiss as a mere gimmick – until you pick it up and use it.

Join us as we take you from unboxing to note-taking to our best approximation of artwork in the below video, a guided tour of the Apple Pencil on the iPad Pro!
