Priced the same as the previous budget model, it also supports the Apple Pencilstylus which was first introduced together with all the iPad Pro in 2015. The move by Apple is the Cupertino giant’s attempt to undertake Google and its large presence in the US education market, which will be dominated by Chromebooks in addition to funding Windows laptops. At the exact same occasion, Apple also declared education programmes, such as the Everyone Can Produce program. Let us get back into the iPad (2018). In the united states, the brand new iPad is priced beginning at $299 (roughly Rs. 19,400) for schools, and $329 (roughly Rs. 21,300) for customers. This gives it the same price as the previous 9.7-inch iPad, which had exactly the same reduced pricing for universities as well. In India, pricing is quite similar to the last generation. The 32GB iPad (2018) Wi-Fi version has been priced at Rs. 28,000, while the 32GB iPad (2018) Wi-Fi + Cellular version has been priced at Rs. 38,600.

In the event, Apple also announced the capacity to create digital books will be available shortly within Pages on the iPad, helping teachers create publications for their pupils. All three of these iWork apps will be preloaded for free on the new iPad model. The company also announced new variations of GarageBand and Clips, with the former gaining a kids-focused audio bunch, as well as the latter getting filters and posters intended for kids.
As for the brand new Everyone Can Produce curriculum, Apple says it’s been designed to make it “fun and easy for teachers to integrate drawing, music, filmmaking or photography in their existing lesson plans to get any topic.” In its press statement, Apple said, “Starting later that spring, Apple Stores will start teaching Everyone Can Produce as part of their regular Today at Apple sessions for teachers. Apple’s 501 stores in 21 nations have already taught nearly 5,000 hands-on Teacher Tuesday sessions on subjects such as coding and app design, film and audio production, and spreadsheets or presentations.”
