Does your Apple Pencil keep getting knocked off the magnet? See how we've taken care of this...
Check out this recent comment from Loretta about her issues with Apple Pencil and how she solved it...
"I recently bought an iPad Pro along with the Apple Pencil and keyboard and learned the hard way that the pencil does not stay securely attached to the iPad. I hope the Stylus Sling can help me avoid losing another $125 Apple Pencil. Thus far, the Stylus Sling does exactly what I’d hoped it would, which is to keep the stylus secure and easily accessible. Would highly recommend !" ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The Stylus Sling for Apple Pencil is the perfect solution for this problem and it fits the Smart Keyboard Folio and Smart Folio perfectly!
Do you use an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil (2nd Generation)? We use our iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil and love the workflow, but here are a few points we've found in using the Apple Pencil 2nd Generation.
A nice upgrade to the original Apple Pencil, the Apple Pencil 2 charges via a magnet on the side of the iPad Pro. This is great for charging, but does make it susceptible to getting lost when you're on the go. Many times the Apple Pencil Gen 2 gets knocked off or detaches from the magnet, either falling in your bag – or worse – losing your expensive Apple Pencil.
There are many times when putting the iPad Pro 2018 into a bag or backpack and the Apple Pencil 2 gets dislodged or knocked and falls off the magnet. We have also seen how it can come loose from the magnet when you grab the iPad Pro on the side where the Apple Pencil 2 is attached. This becomes annoying, so using the Stylus Sling re-positions the Apple Pencil 2 on to the cover. The Stylus Sling just helps to keep it secure, so it won't get lost. It would be expensive to replace, too, as the cost of the Apple Pencil 2 is $129.
We tested the Stylus Sling for Apple Pencil (12.9-inch and 11-inch) and are very happy with the results. It positions nicely on your cover or Smart Folio and gives you a secure place to stash your Apple Pencil keeping it from getting lost.
Don't risk losing your brand new Apple Pencil. The iPad Pro magnet is good for temporary charging, but a secure pocket is better to keep your new Pencil from getting lost.
We love the Apple Smart Folio and Smart Keyboard, as this is fits cleanly to the iPad Pro. It protects the back of the iPad Pro as well as covering the front. The Smart Keyboard Folio is better than the last generation, as it doesn't have the slightly confusing folding setup. This makes using it much easier.
