Astropad doesn’t detect Apple Pencil. PLEASE HELP!


Astropad studio doesn’t detect my Apple Pencil input but it detects my finger input. What’s wrong? Please help.

I just downloaded it a few hours ago and using the latest illustrator as of today. So both are up to date.


I had issues when I first installed Astropad as well. I just reset my Mac and my iPad. After that I hooked it all back up and it was working fine. Also, double check that your Apple Pencil is properly paired, I have had issues with it losing sync in the past.

I should also mention that I had a similar problem a week or so ago, and it turned out that I needed to replace the nib. It just stopped working one day, totally weird.
