iPhones offer a variety of features that can be used to create digital artwork, and many apps exist in the App Store that can help users create professional-looking images. These apps can be especially useful for students and professionals who want to annotate or draw on photographs or other documents stored on their phones. In this article, we’ll show you how to use a stylus pen on an iPhone 13 to make drawings that are more precise and accurate than those made with your fingers.

To get started, open the Photos app and tap an image you want to edit. Next, tap the pencil icon in the bottom row of tools at the bottom of the screen. This will bring up a menu that lets you add drawings to the photo. The Markup feature is particularly useful for business people who want to add annotations or comments to a document or photograph.

Stylus Pens for iPhones

While the iPad and Apple Pencil can both be used with a stylus, not every stylus is compatible with iPhones. In fact, the majority of styluses on the market are not designed for iPhones, and most do not support pressure sensitivity. You may be able to find some that claim to have this capability, but this is typically because the stylus is actually meant for another type of device and only happens to work on iPhones.

With this in mind, the best stylus for iPhones is a capacitive model that recognizes even the smallest touch from the pen’s tip. This will allow you to create thin and thick lines with precision and accuracy. A few good options include the Adonit Pro 4, the Honksy, and the Amazon Basics stylus. If you’re creating digital art and need a stylus with pressure sensitivity, however, we recommend opting for an active stylus like the Wacom Bamboo or the Procreate Pocket.
