Best iPad stylus: Intro

There are so many amazing iPad apps for artists and iPad apps for designers, but painting, drawing or sketching in those apps just using stubby fingers can feel a little clumsy, and we've found it often shows. That's why it's helpful to have an iPad stylus for precision and accuracy to get the results you want.

There are several different types of stylus for iPad, and we show you a variety of different options here. 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 the 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.
