Apple iPads have been having a great year thanks to the arrival of new iPad Pro models. For the iPad owner on your list, we recommend these great iPad accessories.

An Excellent Tool for Creativity and Control

The Apple Pencil is perhaps one of biggest reasons as to why one would buy an iPad Pro. It's precision and control are as close to a real piece of paper and pencil as you're going to get. It's weighted and has great battery life with up to 12 hours of use on a single charge. It also senses pressure so that you can get light lines with light strokes and heavier lines with heavier strokes. All-in-all, if you're looking to take notes or draw on a tablet, this is the only way to go.
