The Apple Pencil 2 will retail for $89, which is the lowest recorded price ever. This translates to a massive $40 off from its regular $129 price. The 2nd generation Pencil is compatible with iPad Pro models and the newer iPad Air and iPad Mini, including the 5th generation iPad Air we reviewed.

Apart from being different in terms of compatibility, it should be noted that the Apple Pencil 2 boasts wireless magnetic charging, which is an advantage you can only make use of with compatible iPads. On the other hand, the Pencil 1 can be charged directly via the Lightning port.
