Steve Jobs already said in previews interviews that if he had the choice of making a stylus for any of his products, he would refuse. This is not the case anymore as a few days ago we found out that Apple had a patent signed in 2008 for a stylus that will open up doors to more people in our society. What kind of people? Kids, of course. Kids, along with other age students would find this instrument very beneficial for them as a stylus is one of the easiest ways to keep up with notes as it simulates a real pen and paper. Apple wasn’t even thinking about making a stylus for the recent Apple iPad but, as it grew more famous it was starting to become more of a petition for them to make one. As you may or may not know, the iPad is a ultra-sensitive tablet that is meant for surfing the Web, reading documents and of course, the millions of applications that now exist in the Apple world today.  It was also meant to work using your fingers, meaning the possibility of a stylus was a little far fetch to say.

A stylus would mean: More efficiency in terms of being able to write notes and draw instead of just using your fingers to type and/or draw and of course, more popularity in children, college students and even professionals. iPad already made a new version with a couple of new features like an integrated camera and a USB port which is one of the things people were asking ever since iPad came to be. We are not sure if this idea of a stylus is going to see the light of day but all we know is that it is a huge possibility so keep checking the Apple website for more news about this and upcoming products.

  1. It’s interesting to see this point of view. I can’t say fore sure if I agree or not, but it is something I will think about now.
