Use Your Finger As An Eraser On iPad: How-to

Turn your finger into an eraser on your iPad Pro or any other iPad with Procreate installed.

The launch of iPad Pro has delighted many professionals from the world of art, if not those common users, who found it too big to carry. The giant 12.9-inch screen becomes a canvas for artists to sketch and realize their imagination with the help of Apple Pencil.

Unfortunately, there is no eraser at the other end of this Pencil. No artist is perfect enough to draw or sketch their creations in a single go, and therefore, need of an eraser is inevitable. So there is a quandary – whether to buy another Pencil or cope with the situation.
