Bamboo Stylus fineline and Intuos Creative Stylus 2 Compatibility

At Wacom, our goal is to provide people with the tools to create anywhere, anytime. We created the Intuos Creative Stylus 2 and Bamboo Stylus fineline to give people a fine-tipped stylus experience on the iPad. For note takers, doodlers and sketchers, these two styluses are intended to offer a new digital handwriting experience.

 

But some users aren’t experiencing this. Due to the new touch sensor on iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 and updates to iOS 8, users have experienced poor performance from the Intuos Creative Stylus 2 and Bamboo Stylus fineline. Users of iOS 8, iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 can experience:

 

·         Wavy or skipping lines

·         Tails at the end of lines

·         A blank area at the edges of their screens

·         Incorrect battery status notifications in Bamboo Paper

In some cases, these challenges can be improved with an app update, or a firmware update. We are working with our app partners to update their apps for an improved experience. App partners will need to update and submit their apps to the Apple App Store. Stay tuned to Wacom’s social media channels for updated app news.
