Logitech’s new ‘Crayon’ is a great-looking Apple Pencil alternative that costs half the price — here’s how it works

Logitech Crayon

Logitech just announced its own take on the $100 Apple Pencil, which lets you draw and write on the iPad.

Logitech’s new “Crayon” is compatible with the new 9.7-inch iPad, but at $50, only costs half the retail price of the Apple Pencil.

The Apple Pencil wasn’t designed with children in mind, so Logitech’s Crayon updates those features to make it a more kid-friendly option.

The Crayon’s prism-like shape ensures it won’t roll off surfaces.

The Logitech Crayon automatically pairs with the new sixth-generation iPad and “leverages technology found in Apple Pencil to deliver sub-pixel precision, low latency and support for tilt in a design that’s perfect for students,” according to the company.

Logitech Crayon works with Microsoft Office and Explain Everything, as well as Apple’s Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, which have all been updated for the new iPad and the Apple Pencil.

The Crayon’s tip is “pry-resistant,” and requires a special tool to be removed.
