Following the release of Mix this week, we’re happy to share more good news: Surface Pressureis here! Simply install iOS 8 on your iPad, then connect Pencil with Paper to take advantage of this new feature.
Surface Pressure uses Pencil’s uniquely-designed tip to make expression possible from every angle: use the tip for fine details or the angled edge for broad strokes, fill faster as you draw, or carve away in varying widths as you erase. Surface Pressure is currently enabled for Draw, Outline, and Color, and is coming soon to the Sketch tool.

Visit Making FiftyThree to learn about the thinking behind Surface Pressure and, as always, we welcome you to contact us with feedback and suggestions.
