The apple pen came well wrapped and in excellent condition. The pen is charging well and performing well too. The experience has been a great one thus far in this new experience of buying refurbished.

Would not be able to tell that this is a refurbished product if I didn’t know. Looks brand new and works perfectly with my iPad. I got another one for my girlfriend after I bought this one for the first time and she loves it too.

I am continued to be amazed by the high quality electronics on this site. If you’re hesitant, just do it. I have bought three things from Back Market now and they all look and run brand new; it’s hard to believe it is refurbished. Came with the original box and the contents of the box (even the instructions!) Amazing, thank you.

lightning fast shipping, and the pencil is absolutely good as new. in fact, I would never have guessed that it had been refurbished. It came in the original box with all the accoutrements. Thank you, I love Back Market and will continue to buy tech stuff from you guys. My entire fam buys from you, and we have never once been disappointed. Saving money is awesome, and recycling stuff is just a smart, common sense thing to do.

I’ve had my apple pencil (and iPad air) for about a week and a half now, and I’m definitely still excited about this purchase! This apple pencil was rated “excellent”, and it works so well. Thank you so much Back Market! I definitely recommend them. Their shipping is super quick, and their products are very lovingly cared for.

This is a dismantling and not a repair manual. To repair your Apple Pencil, use our service guide.

    • org/HowToDirection”>

      Apple tends to keep its mouth shut when talking about this accessory, but here’s what we know:

    • There is a Bluetooth 4.1 module inside.

    • Pen taps are read twice as often as finger taps.

    • Operating time – up to 12 hours.

    • Length – 175 mm, thickness – 8.9 mm.

    • org/HowToDirection”>

      Lightning connector is used for charging.


    • The introduction of the Apple Pencil continues to be widely discussed. Let’s quickly compare it with analogues.

    • First, it’s the Microsoft Surface Pen (included with the Surface Pro 4).

    • Secondly, this is the so-called “iPad Pencil” from FiftyThree studio, which is designed to work with their Paper application. The Pencil by 53 is similar in many ways to the Apple Pencil in its feature set.

    • In addition, it is easy to open, so you can always get the battery.

    • It also has an eraser.


    • Apple generously provided a spare tip. And also – (at the very last moment) the Lightning-Lightning adapter. Without it, you would have to charge the pen in a dubious way – directly from the iPad.

    • The connector cover is held in place with magnets, but you risk losing it in the first few months.

    • A new model number is hidden under the cover: A1603.


    • Let’s start from the end, or rather, from the tip. He simply rolls out.

    • A tiny piece of metal is visible deep inside. It looks like Apple wanted to position it as close to the screen as possible.

    • We think that this part is connected to one of the two transmitters that are needed to detect the angle of inclination and the position of the pencil in space.

    • iPad Pro touch surface must be able to determine the distance to each of the transmitters. This calculates the angle of the Apple Pencil. The pencil draws in different ways – the shape of the stroke depends on how you hold it.


    • We’d like to take a closer look at ‘s Lightning connector instead of the eraser. The iOpener heating pad is here to help!

    • Author’s note: calling the device a “pencil” and not adding an eraser is absurd.

    • Translator’s note: not everything is so simple.

    • Connector design could not be completely disconnected even after a warm conversation with iOpener. But if you pull properly…

    • … then the cable can be broken. Which is what we did.

    • Looks like we’re in trouble. You can’t take it back.


    • org/HowToDirection”>

      Having opened the upper and lower parts and not finding a way inside, we are forced to move on to heavy artillery.

    • The hull had to be cut. Inside was a long metal cylinder.

    • The most important thing is that we did not touch the battery. Until they hit.


    • On the metal casing you can immediately find a miniature three-beam slot a la Apple Watch.

    • org/HowToDirection”>

      But now we have the right tool – you don’t have to file a screwdriver anymore.

    • Directly below this mount is a group of contacts. They are probably needed for internal testing at Apple.


    • We cut, bend … We would like a laser cutter. It would be much easier to get under the metal casing with it.

    • We are rewarded with: antenna and battery design.

    • org/HowToDirection”>

      This lithium-ion battery has the following specifications: 3.82 V and 0.329 Wh. But make no mistake – compared to the iPhone 6s, it holds only 5% of the charge.

    • For the record: Microsoft Surface Pen runs on a standard AAAA battery that can be replaced at any time. Typically, the energy characteristics of such batteries are from 0.4 to 0.9Wh


    • So, the metal casing is removed! Hidden under it, the antenna is made in familiar colors – black and gold.

    • org/HowToDirection”>

      From here you have a much better view of the train, which we broke at the very beginning. It goes between the Lightning connector and the battery. On the way, it contains the microcircuits necessary for charging. So it seems to us.

    • On the other end, we found some more chips. This is a sign that it’s time to move on to the motherboard!

    • The board had to be folded in half to fit in the case .


    • This is the smallest board we have ever seen at 1. 0g.

    • ST Microelectronics STML151UCY6 32-bit power efficient microcontroller based on RISC architecture and ARM Cortex-M3 core.

    • ST Microelectronics AS5C Y533 (we found a similar chip in the 4th generation Apple TV).

    • L05286 QS4 VG Z SGP 528.

    • EWX 01129.

    • Bluetooth Smart Controller with CSR1012A05 label. The manufacturer is Cambridge Silicon Radio (i.e. Qualcomm).


    • But we still need to go back to the metal casing to get the tip and find out what its magic is.

    • An even smaller board! Three contacts on it are located exactly opposite the other three contacts on the edge of the pen structure.

    • When pressed, the tip moves slightly inside the main structure and the distance between the contacts becomes different. If you constantly measure this distance, then pressing can be tracked. That is our theory.

    • Maybe the chip will tell us how everything works here?

    • Hint is: 8529043 343S00008-A1.


    • Apple Pencil Repairability – 1 out of 10 (with a score of 10, the device is easy to repair).

    • Tip and cap are easy to replace if worn (or lost).

    • The pen is clearly not intended to be opened or repaired. Do not get inside without damaging the device.

    • The plastic and metal layers cannot be removed – they can only be cut.

    • The battery cannot be replaced, which means that the life of the device is limited in any case.

    Important Safety Information for iPad

    WARNING. Failure to follow these safety instructions could result in fire, electric shock, or other injury, or damage to iPad or other property. Please read the following safety information before using iPad.

    Operation. Handle iPad with care. The device is made of metal, glass and plastic and contains fragile electronic components. iPad and its battery can be damaged if dropped, exposed to fire, punctured, or splashed with liquid. If you suspect that iPad or its battery is damaged, stop using the device as overheating or injury may result. Do not use an iPad with a cracked screen as this may cause injury. Use a case or screen protector to prevent scratches on the surface of iPad.

    Repair. Do not open iPad or attempt to repair the device yourself. Disassembling iPad yourself can damage it and cause injury. If iPad is damaged, malfunctions, or has been exposed to liquid, contact Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider. Repairs not performed by Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider may use non-Apple genuine parts and may affect the safety and performance of your device. For more information about repair and service, visit the iPad Service Answer Center webpage.

    Battery. iPad battery repair should only be performed by a trained technician to avoid battery damage, overheating, fire, or personal injury. Recycle or dispose of the battery separately from household waste and in accordance with local environmental regulations and guidelines. For battery maintenance and disposal, see Battery Maintenance and Recycling.

    Lasers. The TrueDepth Camera System and LiDAR Scanner contain one or more lasers. These laser systems can be turned off for safety purposes if the device is damaged or malfunctions. If you receive a notification on iPad that the laser system is off, repair of that device must be performed exclusively by Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider. Improper repairs, modifications, or the use of non-genuine Apple parts in laser systems may prevent safety devices from working properly and result in hazardous exposure and injury to eyes and skin.

    Loss of attention. Using the iPad under certain conditions may distract your attention and lead to dangerous situations (for example, do not use headphones while riding a bicycle and do not type text messages while driving a car). Follow rules that prohibit or restrict the use of mobile devices and headphones.

    Navigation. The Maps application depends on services that provide data. Data provision services may change. They may not be available in all countries or regions, and as a result, maps and location information may not be available, accurate, or complete. Compare the information provided by the Maps application with the real area around you. Use common sense when navigating. Obey the posted road signs and pay attention to the current state of the road. Some features of the Maps application require the use of Location Services.

    Charging. Use the included USB cable and power adapter to charge your iPad. You can also charge iPad using “Made for iPad” cables and power adapters, as well as other third-party power adapters that support USB 2.0 or later, as long as they comply with applicable national, international, and regional safety standards. Other adapters may not comply with current safety standards and charging with them may involve a risk of injury or death.

    Using damaged cables and chargers, or charging in wet conditions can cause fire, electric shock, injury, or damage to iPad or other property. When charging iPad, make sure the USB cable is securely plugged into the adapter before plugging it into a power outlet. It is very important to keep iPad, USB cable, and its power adapter in a well-ventilated area during use and charging.

    Charging cable and connector. Avoid prolonged skin contact with the connector or cable while the charging cable is connected to a power source, as this may cause discomfort or injury. Avoid situations where you can sit on or fall asleep on the charging port or cable.

    Continuous heat exposure. The iPad and USB power adapter comply with required surface temperature limits set by applicable national, international, and local safety standards. However, even within these limits, continuous contact with hot surfaces for extended periods of time may cause discomfort or injury. Use the device wisely and avoid situations in which your skin is in contact with the device or its power adapter for a long time while it is in operation or connected to a power source. For example, when a device or power adapter is connected to a power source, you do not need to sleep on it, put it under a blanket, pillow, or cover it with your body. Keep iPad and its power adapter in a well-ventilated area during use and charging. You should be especially careful if your physical condition does not allow you to feel the heating temperature of the devices.

    USB power adapter. To ensure safe use of the Apple USB Power Adapter and to reduce the chance of heat build-up and injury, plug the power adapter directly into a power outlet. Do not use the power adapter in damp areas or near sources of moisture such as liquids, washbasins, bathtubs, showers, etc. Do not touch the adapter with wet hands. Stop using the power adapter and any cables in any of the following cases:

    • Power adapter plug or pins damaged;

    • Charging cable frayed or damaged;

    • power adapter has been exposed to high humidity or liquid has entered the adapter case;

    • The power adapter has been dropped and its case has been damaged.

    Radio frequency interference. Follow rules that prohibit or restrict the use of mobile devices. Although iPad has been designed, tested, and manufactured to comply with RF emissions guidelines, iPad’s RF emissions can interfere with other electronic equipment and cause it to malfunction. If you are not allowed to use your device, such as on an airplane or at the request of the police, turn off your iPad or use airplane mode. Alternatively, go to Settings > Wi-Fi and Settings > Bluetooth to turn off wireless transmitters on iPad.

    Impact on medical devices. iPad, iPad Smart Cover, Smart Folio, Smart Keyboard Folio, Magic Keyboard, Magic Keyboard Folio, and Apple Pencil contain magnets and components and/or radio transmitters that emit electromagnetic fields. These magnets and electromagnetic fields can interfere with medical devices.

    Consult your physician and medical device manufacturer for details about device operation and whether to keep medical device at a safe distance from iPad, iPad Smart Cover, Smart Folio, Smart Keyboard Folio, Magic Keyboard for iPad and Apple Pencil. Manufacturers often provide guidelines for the safe use of devices with wireless or magnetic devices to help prevent possible interference. If you believe that your iPad, iPad Smart Cover, Smart Folio, Smart Keyboard Folio, Magic Keyboard for iPad, or Apple Pencil are affecting your medical device, stop using those products.

    Some medical devices, such as implanted pacemakers and defibrillators, may be equipped with sensors that respond to radio-magnetic radiation when close to the source. To prevent possible interference with these medical devices, keep them away from iPad, iPad Smart Cover, Smart Folio, Smart Keyboard Folio, Magic Keyboard for iPad, and Apple Pencil (greater than 15 cm; for more accurate directions) consult your physician and medical device manufacturer).

    iPad is not a medical device. The iPad is not a medical device and should not be used as a substitute for professional medical advice. It is not intended for and may not be used to diagnose disease or other conditions and may not be used to treat, relieve acute conditions, or prevent diseases or other conditions. Before making any decision regarding your health, contact a healthcare facility.

    Health status. If you believe that iPad or flashing lights may be affecting your health (eg, causing seizures, fainting, eye strain, or headaches), consult a physician before using iPad.

    Explosive atmosphere and other atmospheric conditions. Charging or using iPad in potentially explosive environments, such as places with high concentrations of flammable chemicals, vapors, or particles (such as grain, dust, or metal powders) in the air, can be hazardous. If iPad is exposed to high concentrations of industrial chemicals, including near evaporating liquid gases such as helium, iPad may be damaged or may not function. Obey all signs and directions.

    Repetitive movements. Performing repetitive activities such as typing or playing on the iPad may cause discomfort in the arms, hands, shoulders, neck, or other parts of the body. If you feel unwell, stop using iPad and contact your doctor.

    High risk activities. The device is not intended for use in situations where its failure could result in loss of life, injury or serious damage to the environment.

    Choking hazard. Some iPad accessories contain small parts that are a choking hazard to small children.
