For ideas of all sizes.

“Apple’s new iPad Pro-only stylus can’t measure up to FiftyThree’s writing implement—it works with the iPhone, the iPad, and a number of iOS apps.”

WIRED Magazine

Freedom of expression.

Great tools inspire great ideas. Pencil by FiftyThree is the most natural and expressive way to create on iPad and iPhone. Advanced technology meets beautiful design to keep you in the flow, without needing to switch tools. With Surface Pressure, Erase, Blend, and adaptive Palm Rejection, Pencil puts creative possibility in your hands.

Surface Pressure

Expressive from every angle. Pencil’s unique tip is shaped to create lines of all sizes without any settings. Use the point for fine details and the angled edge for broad strokes.


Be bold and make mistakes. Pencil’s unique built-in eraser lets you precisely carve away to get at what’s essential. No need to switch tools, just flip Pencil to erase.


Get hands-on with your ideas. Pencil takes care of the lines so you can use your finger to smooth rough edges and blend colors directly on the page. Create beautiful color transitions for charts, skies, and shadows.

Palm Rejection

Our adaptive palm rejection instantly knows whether it’s your hand or Pencil touching the page. Rest your hand on the screen, write from any angle. No calibration or setup. You’ll forget you’re creating on a tablet.

Crafted for creativity.

From the sustainably harvested wood body to the elegant technological core, every detail in Pencil combines beautiful engineering and meticulous craft.

  1. Eraser tip

    A unique sensor lets you flip Pencil to erase when connected to Paper, without switching tools.

  2. Bluetooth Smart

    Pencil’s certified Bluetooth Smart wireless delivers a fast, stable connection with industry-leading power conservation.

  3. Seamless body

    Each Pencil is milled from a single, solid piece of material. Graphite brushed aluminum model shown.

    Also available in Walnut and Gold.

  4. Lasting power

    Pencil’s battery charges off any USB port in under 90 minutes and delivers power for up to a month of normal use on a single charge.

  5. Accurate sensing

    Pencil’s tip and eraser sensors are plated in 14kt gold for lightning fast, accurate reaction.

  6. Tapered tip

    Pencil’s durable tip has been carefully friction-tuned to feel great on a screen. Use both the tip and edge to draw. Extra tip and eraser included.


An artisanally crafted tool. The body is milled from a solid piece of premium-grade walnut that has met rigorous standards for sustainability. Each Pencil has a unique character that will subtly change with years of use.


The seamless brushed aluminum body has been extruded to reduce manufacturing waste. Minimal, beautiful, and with just a little more heft than the Walnut model.

Inspired Form

The carpenter pencil form has been used by builders and makers for centuries. No rolling, and a tapered tip for a wide range of writing, drawing, and shading angles. It’s as thin as a real pencil, with internally balanced components that just feel right in your hand.

Simply works.

The best tools don’t require a lot of fuss — they just work. With Pencil, we’ve radically simplified things like charging and wireless connection so you can spend less time in menus and more time creating.

  1. Power it up

    Under normal use, you won’t need to recharge Pencil for about a month. The battery can be slid out and recharged on any standard USB port in under 90 minutes.

  2. Kiss to Pair™

    Bluetooth connection as it should be: no settings menus, no confusing pairing rituals. Just press Pencil’s tip to the screen. Clear, stable, simple... easy as falling in love.

  3. Plays nicely

    Palm Rejection, Erase, and Blend work only on Paper and other supported applications, but Pencil also works well as a non-connected stylus in any other app and on any touchscreen device.
