Some people are reportedly stealing the Apple Pencil accessory that launched alongside the iPad Pro, according to various reports across the web.

The Pencil is a $99 (£79) stylus accessory that can be used to draw on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Apple has been heavily criticised for its lack of stock, with shipping times slipping to 4 or 5 weeks in both the UK and US.

In order to successfully demo the Pencil, the unit has to be un-tethered. Anyone could pick it up and, as some people have done, steal it.

Faisal Qureshi tweeted at influential Apple blogger Marco Arment detailing a theft he witnessed.
