Replacing the Apple Pencil tip is very simple, just follow the steps given below:

  • Unscrew the old tip from the stylus like a small light bulb.
  • Screw in the new one, and that’s it.

Here, the catch is that a set of Apple Pencil spare parts costs around about $19.00, and includes 4 tips. They are practically sold for their weight in gold. The good news is that online you can save a lot with compatible replacement tips, comparable in quality to the original ones. Here are some examples:

Buy Apple Pencil 1st and 2nd Generation Replacement Tips for $7.99.
Buy Apple Pencil Tip (2-piece kit) for $8.39.
Buy TechMatte Replacement Magnetic Cap and Holder for Apple Pencil for $9.99.

To lengthen the life of this new tip, remember not to press too hard on the iPad when writing or drawing. All the sensitivity of the device lies in the internal components of the Apple Pencil, and not in the eraser. And keep in mind that if you don’t feel like spending so much on a stylus, there’s always Logitech Crayon, the low-cost alternative to Apple Pencil.
