The new stylus will work on Apple iPads and other tablets and promises 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and several useful shortcut buttons for things like undo and redo.

The brushed aluminium stylus comes in black or blue and there are also options to buy the product with a case, extra nibs or a replacement battery (the stylus comes with an AAAA battery).

Wacom says that the stylus supports various drawing apps including Autodesk SketchBook Pro, ArtRage, ProCreate, Psykopaint and the firm’s own popular Bamboo Paper app, which has just been updated to support the new stylus.

The free app, now on version 2.0, has been tweaked to support the third-generation and fourth-generation iPads, as well as the iPad mini, while Tumblr and Dropbox sharing has also been added.

Other more minor edits see the app offer premium notebooks, better palm recognition and enhanced tools for expanding color palettes.

Wacom has confirmed that the new stylus will hit Best Buy stores at the start of October for $99.
