Adonit, known for its line of styluses, today announced the launch of the Pixel, a stylus it's calling its "most advanced stylus to date." The Pixel features a 1.9mm Pixelpoint tip that's been improved with predictive touch technology for better accuracy and responsiveness, and "paper-like drag" to mimic the feeling of writing on paper.

Combining features from the Jot Script and the Jot Touch, the Pixel features Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity with support for 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity, palm rejection in supported apps, offset correction, and dedicated shortcut buttons that can perform functions like undo, redo, and erase.

"A stylus should do more than just replace a user's fingertip when working with a tablet, but rather enhance the experience so users can create and work without boundaries," said Rafael Gomez, Marketing Manager for Adonit. "With the introduction of Pixel in particular, we wanted to make sure we addressed all our users' needs and incorporated them into a stylus that works with the entire modern line of iPads. Users will be able to take notes, draw, mark finite details, or simply maneuver through their iPad more precisely with Pixel. Whatever their needs may be, Pixel provides consumers with a high performing experience."

An SDK for the stylus can be used by developers to incorporate support into third-party apps, and a built in sensor feature turns the stylus on when it's picked up and off when it's inactive to conserve battery power. The Pixel, which Adonit says is designed to be ergonomic, is available with a Black or Bronze 10.5mm body.

The Adonit Pixel is compatible with the following devices: iPhone 4s, 5, 5c, 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, SE, iPad 4, iPad Mini, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3, iPad Mini 4, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro 12.9.

Apple makes its own stylus, the Apple Pencil, but it is only compatible with the 9.7 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models. The Pixel cannot be used alongside an Apple Pencil due to the potential for interference and screen protectors are not recommended.

The Pixel stylus can be purchased from the Adonit website or from Amazon.com for $79.99.

If this doesn't work with the iPad Pros built in technology it will suck. I've tried all the bluetooth styluses over the years. They all have terrible perspective, precision and response problems.

A stylus would come in mighty handy even just using Pixelmator.
A finger is a totally unsuitable pointing device. You can't even see what you're doing cuz the gigantic finger is covering everything.

When the entire line-up is updated to eventually work with the Apple Pencil I wonder if the market for styluses on iOS will be ruined?

Same here.

I hope that Apple doesn't stop with just the iPads. The Adonit I have works with the iPad Mini and iPhone 6 Plus that I use, so if Apple brings the pencil to every iOS device then these companies will have to find new and compelling reasons for users to buy.

Reasons other than price that is.
