There is an interesting app for the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil called Astropad. It lets you use an iPad Pro as a Wacom pressure tablet for your Mac. Easy to find info on the Internet and in the App Store for iPad.

It requires Wacom driver software, then you can draw with an Apple Pencil, and SketchTools works with pressure tablets.

I'm not sure if you can see the Mac screen image on the iPad. This does work with Photoshop and many other apps.

That looks quite interesting. I'd be curious what Mac applications people use a tablet with. I don't think it would work too well with PowerCADD right now.
