Apple may be looking to improve upon the stylus as we know it today. The Cupertino company filed a patent application with the USPTOfor what it calls an ‘Active Stylus,’ which can be used on capacitive touch sensor panels like those found on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices.

The advantage is, of course, its thinness compared with our meaty digits, which makes it better for writing or selecting items very precisely. This will improve the writing of certain types of script and may even make playing games more enjoyable as your fingers won’t be blocking what you are trying to see.
