New Apple stylus patent shows active tip

Apple continues to work on stylus technologies for its iOS devices, as seen in a recent patent. The stylus uses an electrode at the tip to affect the stylus’ reaction to a touchscreen, similar to what Griffin did in its previously-released iMarker and Crayola ColorStudio HD.
