As an iPad-using artist or designer, you’re spoilt for choice with the various drawing and sketching apps available on hand. But to create precise, quality work, most artists would agree it’s best to use a stylus, and with styli becoming even more pressure sensitive and responsive, it’s probably the closest you’ll get to traditional drawing on your iPad.

But don’t think that using an iPad limits you to an Apple Pencil. Here we mention nine other stylus options for you, ranging in price from £20 to around £80 depending on your needs. Some connect to the iPad using Bluetooth for accurate pressure sensitivity, palm rejection and other features. Others, such as Adobe's Ink, actually connects to Creative Cloud to work seamlessly with the company's desktop apps.

You'll also find that some styluses have different styles of tip or nib to help you achieve the results you're aiming for. Some are brush-like, while others are like pencils, pastels or pens.

Here's a round-up of the best iPad styluses (or styli) for artists and designers we've seen.
