If you have a sixth-generation iPad or iPad Pro model that predates the 2018 ‌iPad‌, you might be interested to know that Amazon is currently selling the first-generation Apple Pencil for just $79.88.

At $80, the Apple Pencil is $20 less expensive than the standard asking price of $99, and it is the cheapest price we've ever seen on the accessory.

Apple does have an ‌Apple Pencil‌ 2 now, but it works exclusively with the 2018 11 and 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ models, so if you have an older tablet, you'll still need to pick up the first-generation ‌Apple Pencil‌.

That's about $60.00 too expensive, considering it's heading towards obsolescence.

That's ridiculous. I can buy 470 regular pencils for the same price.

Those of you complaining about this product being outdated don't really get it. It isn't outdated at all if you own a last-gen iPad. It's the only one that works with it, and it's incompatible with the latest iPad. So it being the old model is completely irrelevant.

All Apple products are outdated.

Except the Watch, but that only works in the U.S.
