During Wednesday's Apple Event, the company unveiled the new digital stylus used exclusively with the iPad Pro. Some social media users were excited about the new product coming their way.
Many wondered how Steve Jobs would feel about the product, given that he asked when introducing the iPhone, "Who wants a stylus?"

Apple Pencil: because we don't talk about how they said "Yuch! Nobody wants a stylus. So let's not use a stylus." anymore.— Francis Gilbert (@frangilbert) September 10, 2015

Others poked fun at the price and usefulness of the new Apple product.
The real #ApplePencil will likely cost you $100, but what Apple won't tell you is that any standard pencil will also work ;)— Rich DeMuro (@richdemuro) September 9, 2015
If I cant draw doodlebob with the iPencil then it is not worth $100 pic.twitter.com/3QX6JVFtV6— Seabiscuit (@eLevateRanda) September 9, 2015
"Here at Apple we like to innovate life altering new products, that's why we bring you the iPencil now with 20% less wood, only $99"— Ben (@CriminalCosta) September 9, 2015
$100 for an Apple pencil or $100 for a used bike on Craigslist? One will make you happy, the other is an Apple product.— Bicycle Lobby (@BicycleLobby) September 9, 2015
