An article on TechnoBezz makes a good point: Stop Saying Apple Pencil Is A Stylus! There are many misleading reviews about Apple Pencil. Many of them categorize Apple Pencil as a stylus. Read the full article at: https://apple.news/AXox9L0emQpmQVOBntr3FJg I agree with the points made in this article, but I also regularly refer to the Apple Pencil as a stylus for a simple reason... a reason not addressed in the article above: what should I call it? There's only one non-ambiguous term for a tool used to write on a computer screen that I know of, and that term is "stylus". Microsoft calls its stylus the Surface Pen, but I can't call the Apple Pencil a "pen" without confusing people; A pen is something used to write on paper. I definitely can't call this class of accessories pencils for the same reason. I'm looking for suggestions here. Does anyone have a single term to refer to the Surface Pen, Apple Pencil, and similar input devices?
