    Sorry if this a silly question but in the box with my note, some nibs were included. I'm not quite sure how to replace them in the s pen. I'm assuming that's what they are for. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    There for you to use if you wish. The small plastic ring is to remove a tip. Myself I have not used any of them.

    I changed the name of your thread a bit to make it clearer what the thread was about for you and others who may also be wondering. Thank you for posting an excellent questions. Not everyone knows how to change the nib.

    You can use the included ring or a pair of tweezers to remove the nib.
    Video shows you how to do it.

    I'm not sure why anyone would ever have to do this. They don't wear out, like pencil lead, do they? The tip of my pen seems pretty sturdy. Happy to have a spare, but I'm curious if anyone has ever really had to change one?

    Hi! Forum newbie, Note owner since August :) Is there a rule of thumb for determining whether a nib is worn out, or is that left to my own judgement/preference?

    Is there a difference between the nibs apart from the appearence?
