New Pressure Sensitive Drawing Tools in Apple Notes!


Apple Notes Update - image with demo of new drawing tools.

I have always thought it was disappointing that the main Apple Apps like Notes and Keynote did not take advantage of the pressure sensitivity feature of the Apple Pencil when you were drawing. So I was very excited a few days ago when Paul Hamilton posted on Twitter about the new pens that are now in the updated Apple Notes. They are somewhat "hidden" and you have to swipe to the left on the tool bar to see some of them. There is a thicker marker that adjusts to pressure, a calligraphy pen that swoops like a ribbon, and a beautiful realistic watercolor marker. Hopefully these tools will be added to Pages, Keynote, and Numbers in the near future!
