Get the most out of your Apple Pencil with these cases, grips, and more

The Apple Pencil — first generation, as Apple has recently announced a second generation that, sadly, isn’t compatible — is the one additional expense I recommend to anyone getting a 9.7-inch iPad (6th Gen) or has a previous generation iPad Pro from 2015 to 2017, even over a keyboard case. It’s more than a stylus. It’s the closest representation to an actual pen or pencil you can use with a tablet. Once you have your very own, you’re probably going to want a case, dedicated charger, or some other cool accessories to go with it. These are my favorites.
