Apple Now Selling Apple Pencil Replacement Tips

As of today, Apple has started offering replacement tips for the Apple Pencil in its online store. A set of four Apple Pencil tips can be purchased for $19, with deliveries estimated to take place on Wednesday, March 23 at the earliest.

The $99 Apple Pencil ships with an extra tip in the box, but until today, there was no way to purchase additional tips from Apple. When the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil launched, Apple said it would add replacement tips in the future, a promise it has now made good on.

Apple Pencil tips can be replaced by unscrewing the old tip, inserting the new tip, and screwing it in place.

The launch of the new Apple Pencil tips comes as Apple debuts the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, a second iPad in the iPad Pro family able to take advantage of the Apple Pencil.

(Thanks, Michael!)

Dear Apple, I have my own 4-pack of tips for you:

• Make your accessories less expensive.
• Make your accessories less expensive.
• Make your accessories less expensive.
• Make your accessories less expensive.

That will be $19, thank you. Cash or iTunes voucher will do fine.

at that price just get a second pencil and use the spare that comes with it

That doesn't make any sense.

So let's say I need a tip for my Apple Pencil....... You are telling me... I should pay 5 times the amount, to get an extra tip for my Apple Pencil, by buying an entire new pencil.

Instead of getting 4.... For 1/5th the cost.

Hi can this article author or someone else explain the need for tip replacement? I've not used the Pencil before.

Is it because you can lose them? Why? Do you ever need to remove the tip? Do they get loose?

Is it because they break? Or wear out? Is this a feature? Why is Apple not replacing them on warranty?

What's the deal here?

Am I the only one who thinks it would be a good idea if they were to produce some others styles/colors of the pencils? Maybe there would be a few people who would want to have more than one, or would like a silver/black/space gray one instead. I don't know just a thought.

I've become convinced that this is how Apple prices accessories:

Engineering team: here is our new accessory. It costs $0.X0 to manufacture.

Marketing team: great! Multiply the cost by 20 and that'll be our retail price!

Cook: so it is said.

Expensive but considering there's four of them I think it's alright.
