Best iPad Accessories 2024 - Digital Planning Edition

Best iPad Accessories 2024 - Digital Planning Edition

The new year is just around the corner, and it's time to start thinking about how you're going to stay organized in 2024. If you're like me, you probably have 5 different planners in your cart and are way too excited to start planning a new chapter of your life.

Digital planning has a lot of advantages over traditional paper planning, and if you’re new, this is the perfect time to make the switch. For one, it's more convenient. You can access your planner from anywhere, anytime. Plus, you can easily add, delete, and rearrange things without having to rewrite everything.

This is my fifth year using and designing digital planners. On top of that, I try out TONS of iPad accessories during the year, hence this comprehensive list of my favorite digital stationery and accessories for digital planning.

If you’re looking for tools to upgrade your digital planning experience, or you’re looking for a gift for an iPad obsessed loved one, this list is for you!

Items are listed in no particular order.
