Among Apple's bevy of new products and software updates today, none have produced as many Internet jokes as the Apple Pencil.
The $99 device was created for the new $799 and up iPad Pro, both of which will be available in November. Apple calls the pencil a "precision input device" instead of a stylus, and says it can be used for activities like "fine art illustration and detailed 3-D design."
Apple senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Philip Schiller, introduced the device while he described the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and new Smart Keyboard, also a separate purchase at $169.

The late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has famously berated other devices that require a stylus, which the Internet quickly pointed out today.
