Adonit’s Neo Pro stylus can be magnetically stored and wirelessly charged like the second-generation Apple Pencil.
Few third-party styluses can magnetically attach to an iPad, and the Adonit Neo Pro appears to be the first to wirelessly charge like the Apple Pencil. Most iPad styluses are USB-C powered.
Neo Pro costs $44.99, compared to Apple Pencil’s $129. It offers tilt sensitivity and palm rejection, but no pressure sensitivity like the Apple Pencil.
The Neo Pro’s battery status can be displayed in Apple’s iPadOS battery widget when connected over Bluetooth. The stylus has a replaceable spiral tip and nine hours of battery life.
The Adonit Neo Pro works with the 11-inch iPad Pro, the third-generation or newer 12.9-inch iPad Pro, the fourth-generation iPad Air, and the sixth-generation iPad mini. Space Gray and Matte Silver are available to pre-order.
The Adonit Neo Pro also has some other useful features, such as tilt sensitivity (which makes it feel like a real pen) and palm rejection built in. Although the Neo Pro can be used right away; it doesn’t have to be paired with the iPad first.
Moreover, the Adonit Neo Pro is compatible with the iPad Pro 11″ (1st, 2nd, and 3rd Generations), iPad Pro 12.9″ (3rd, 4th, and 5th Generations), iPad mini (6th Generation), and iPad Air (4th and 5th Generations). We don’t work with any other older iPad models.
Price and availability
On the official Adonit site, you can pre-order the Adonit Neo Pro for just $44.99. This is about a third of what the Apple Pencil costs. The Neo Pro is a good option if you are looking for a stylus that won’t break the bank.
