No. Note+ is only designed for specific iOS tablets. If your device is not shown in the list of compatible devices, there are other stylus options for you. Please refer to our iOS compatible stylus list to find out the best stylus for you.

Does Note+ have Bluetooth? Do I need to pair the Note+ with an app?

Yes, Note+ does have Bluetooth. You do not need to pair your Note+ with the device or Bluetooth for Palm Rejection and Tilt Support. Simply power it on and start using.
However, for Pressure Sensitivity and Shortcut Button features, you will need to pair Note+ to an app to activate it. Please refer to the Apps Page for supported Apps.

How do you begin using Adonit Note+?

To begin using Note+, simply hold down Button A until a blue light is illuminated. Then place the tip on the screen to navigate, tap, or write. You could also wake up the Note app at screen lock by double tapping on the screen to launch the Note app.

Why can’t I wake up the Note app when double tapping on the screen?

There is a difference between Lock Screen and Screen Off. Note+ wakes nothing up when the screen is off. Please make sure the screen is in the lock mode in order to wake it up.
In addition, the Note app wake-up feature is restricted for users to access the Note app without unlocking your screen. It still requires your credential or code to access the device.

Why I find no Blue Spot for pairing in the app or the Blue Spot has no response to my pen at all?

Before you start to pair, a quick press on button A or B, then it’s ready to pair.
In the latest iPad iOS 13 system, your permission is required to allow the app to access Bluetooth when opening those apps that feature Bluetooth. Note that even when your Bluetooth is already on with your device, your permission is still required to be able to use it.
If you are not sure whether it is allowed, you may go to the Device Setting, find your app, turn on the Bluetooth in the "Allow App to Access". Then you can use the app with Bluetooth.

Why does Note+ not auto connect to the same app when re-opening the app that was successfully connected before?

1. Check your Bluetooth that is turned on with your device.
2. Press either button A or B, it will auto connect to app.

How do I use the special features of Note+? (e.g. palm rejection)

As long as your device supports Adonit Note+, it will support the advanced features like Palm Rejection. No need to set up in your device or apps.
Pressure Sensitivity and Shortcut Button, on the other hand, require pairing to an app to be activated.
