The Logitech Crayon has got its best-ever discount over at Verizon going from $69.99 down to $34.99. It was first announced alongside Apple's 2019 iPad model and initially only sold into education before being released to the public. Since its public release, it has sold for $70 with occassional deals taking it to $50. It's never gone this low before, though, so snag one now if you want one.
Note down these savings
This compact stylus is compatible with several different iPad iterations, including 3rd-gen iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad mini 5, and the 6th-gen iPad. It uses the same technology as the Apple Pencil, meaning you won't experience delays in your writing.

The Crayon features a bunch of Apple's proprietary stylus smarts that it uses in the Apple Pencil, but also has some advantages over Apple's own first-gen stylus. It's more affordable, which is a real plus, has minimal lag when writing or drawing and enacts the iPad's palm-rejection tech (just like Apple Pencil). It doesn't require any pairing — just switch it on and it will work — and it charges by plugging a Lightning cable into it (unlike Apple Pencil). It's also a flatter shape which some users may find more comfortable in hand (and means it won't roll off your desk — looking at you Apple Pencil).
But one feature that the Pencil has over the Crayon is pressure sensitivity. The Logitech Crayon isn't pressure sensitive, so you won't see changes to what you're creating when you apply pressure to the Crayon, though it does have a smart tip that adjusts line weight automatically as you tilt it. The Apple Pencil is pressure sensitive, and thus works more like an actual pen or marker.
Logitech's Crayon initially only supported the 6th-generation iPad that it lanched alongside, though support has now been broadened to any iPad that works with Apple's first-gen Pencil. That includes the 6th- and 7th-gen iPad models, iPad Pro models from before 2018, and the latest iPad Air and iPad mini devices. Check out iMore's in-depth review for more info on how it performs.
