-- 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."
