Drawing Tools on iPhone

Pen, Pencil, & Marker

These 3 tools acquire 2 attributes: thickness and opacity. They can be modified by tapping on the tool.


Use the brush tool to draw filled shapes.

To obtain perfect filled shapes: Switch on shape detection whilst using the brush simultaneously.

The Eraser

The eraser comprises either a Pixel Eraser, which rubs out unwanted areas or an Object Eraser which, deletes the whole stroke.

The Lasso Tool

The lasso tool enables diverse operations. It can move, resize, duplicate, clear, recolor, or create an element from any set of strokes and objects.

Ruler / Shape Detection

The ruler can be configured to draw perfect shapes or to show the ruler.

Shape Detection

You can use shape detection to perfect lines, circles, ellipses, rectangles, and a few other shapes.

Shape detection can work in one of two ways using either “Automatic Shape Detection” or “Draw & Hold”.

  • When activated, the newly drawn shapes will take on their respective structures.
  • Alternatively, on your iPad, draw the shape and hold your Apple Pencil in place for a few milliseconds for your perfect shape to take place.

Note: Shape detection and ruler are not available on macOS.

The Color Palette

The color palette includes a total of 12 different colors. It can display up to 6 colors at a time, with the remaining being accessed by a swipe.

Tap a color to select it.
To customize your color palette, simply tap the selected color again to open the full-color picker.
