Ipad 5th generation does not support Ipencil for AF

Recommended Posts

I have only been able to find the last post dated from july 30/18 on the subject,  at that time mentions no other stylus's work with AF. Is there an update to that and a stylus that will now work with Affinity Photo on my 5th gen Ipad? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :-)

The Adonit (capacitive type) stylus should work on any iPad.

Any capacitive stylus will give you basic functionality on any iPad. Your finger is a capacitive stylus!

I use a Meko stylus on my iPad Air 2. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01CKC79O0

The folks at Apple weren't all that helpful aside from trying to upsell me to an Ipad Pro and the Ipencil!

Business as usual, why offer a cheap solution when we can possibly sell new expensive hardware and make a good margin then. ;)

HI,

I asked about this a while back: Affinity designer stylus pen for mac I have the Wacom Bamboo Sketch stylus on my iPad 9.7” 2017, which is supported and works great with all the drawing apps i have except the Affinity apps, looks like they only support the Apple pencil and no third party styluses. I believe the new iPad 9.7" 2018 does work with the Apple pencil and a cheaper upgrade than getting the ipad pro.

I think that’s a different issue, Sara. The other thread seems to be about Bluetooth pairing, not about capacitive stylus functionality: I can’t pair my finger with any Bluetooth-enabled devices! :P

Yes the plain iPad 2018 model does but needs the first generation Pencil 1 here.

Sorry, i thought part of the question asked was what styluses 'might' work similar to the Apple pencil (pressure sensitive/bluetooth) on an ipad that's not compatible with the ipencil but can run the Affinity apps? Ignore my reply and link if it's not relevant.
