Logitech Crayon for iPad arrives next week at Apple stores

The Logitech Crayon for iPad is coming to an Apple Store near you. First introduced for the educational market in May, the stylus is launching for everyone else on Wednesday, Sept. 12. 

Using much of the same technology as the Apple Pencil (except for pressure sensitivity), the Logitech Crayon has been designed to deliver a natural, fast, and precise experience across apps. Although it launched alongside the current budget iPad, the stylus also works with the iPad Pro.

Features include:

  • 8-hour battery life
  • Charges using a standard Lightning cable
  • Shuts off after 30-minute idle time
  • Charging boost provides 30 minutes of writing time in just 90 seconds
  • Tethered cap and pry-resistant smart tip make Crayon safe for curious kids
  • Flat shape design so stylus doesn’t roll
  • One-button press connects instantly with iPad — no complex pairing
  • Zero perceptible lag time
  • Smart tip adjusts line weight dynamically as you tilt

According to Michele Hermann, vice president of mobility at Logitech:

First introduced to students as a versatile tool for learning, we are thrilled to make Logitech Crayon, our first digital pencil, more widely available so even more creators, dreamers, and learners can express themselves and communicate new ideas using the new 9.7-inch iPad.

Logitech Crayon works seamlessly with iPad and the most popular creativity and productivity apps from the App Store so whether you are learning to write a new language, jotting down notes, marking up a screenshot or PDF, or visualizing an idea, Crayon is the perfect tool for the task.

Beginning next week, the Logitech Crayon will be available in Apple retail stores for $69.99, which is $20 more than it costs through Apple’s educational portal. It should also show up soon on the Apple and Logitech websites. In October, the device will arrive at third-party vendors.
