Adonit is my recommendation as bluetooth stylus manufacturer for iPads with Bluetooth 4 until iPad Air 2 generation. I have used Adonit products for years until apple announced the Apple pencil which has a better responsivness on the iPad Pro. Comparing regular Bluetooth and pressure sensitive stylus, Adonit products are well manufactured, durable and their team provides a very good support for popular drawing apps.
I used a Jot Touch for several years and performed serveral live drawing with older and newer Jot Touch Stylus.
How to pick a stylus
There are various options and if people ask me which one would be my recommendation I ask them to think about them self. Everyone has differend hands which means he or she would prefer another stylus. Adonit products are right in the middle while a 53 Pen might be better for huge hands and softer. An old Wacom stylus has a bit too much weight in the back for my taste but is good for small hands. The best way to find out is trying.
- Adonit is a well known and supported brand.
- Well manufactured, none of them broke.
- Good adapter design for charging (USB).
- A Bluetooth stylus needs power.
- Your iPad should have glass protection.
- You depend on apps supporting adonit products.
A bluetooth stylus cost about 100 €. Pricing went up and down a little in the past years.
- 99 € Apple Pencil
