Brick and mortar Apple Stores now selling a third-party stylus made for the Apple iPad
Bluetooth connected stylus 'Pencil' is now available at brick and mortar Apple Stores. The stylus is designed to allow Apple iPad users to draw and write on the screen, and is available in graphite ($49) and hardwood walnut ($59) variations. Some of the features on the device include palm rejection, which prevents accidental screen touches by your palm from counting as an input. Depending on how hard you press the stylus on the screen, you can create lines of various thickness.

The move by the Apple Store to add the 'Pencil' stylus to its accessories line-up comes just a few days after KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi-Kuo said that Apple would be selling an optional stylus for writing on the 12.9-inch screen belonging to the rumored Apple iPad Pro. Kuo said that Apple would be offering the accessory alongside the large-screened slate, which is supposedly going to be available in the second quarter of this year.

Apple Stores in the U.S., U.K., EU and Canada will be the first to stock 'Pencil'. Eventually, Apple will offer the stylus at all of its stores globally. The product is already offered by the online Apple Store.
