Apple Pencil support is coming to the cheap, education-focussed iPad

Apple Pencil support is coming to the cheap, education-focussed iPad

The Apple March 27 event is the first education-focused conference we've seen from the tech company in quite a while, with the last happening in January 2012 in New York City. The announcement is also unusual in that Apple usually makes its product launches in California. With Chromebooks gaining popularity in schools, a low-priced iPad with Apple Pencil support would certainly allow the tablet to offer better competition.

Apple is reportedly mulling to unveil in 2020 an iPhone that folds, CNBC has reported citing several Apple suppliers.

After Apple CFO Luca Maestri prepared analysts in January for a big decline in prices this quarter, Piecyk muses there might actually be room for a little upside. Apple accounted for 17 percent of mobile computing shipments to American students in kindergarten through high school while devices running Google's operating system on Chromebook or Android tablets accounted for 60 percent of the market.

As per official source, a new, cheaper MacBook laptop is in the works and will possibly replace the MacBook Air at a price less than $1,000.

Police say a parent found text messages between Zamora and the male student, indicating sexual activity both on and off campus. Goodyear police have arrested a teacher for alleged sexual misconduct with a 13-year-old student, according to KTVK .

Kuo also added that Apple will integrate Pencil support for iPhones within the next few years. It can be remembered that according to the reports, the company wants its education-based tablet to compete on cost, that is to say, that some of Apple's more advanced technologies would likely not be involved.

It appears that Apple is hoping to attract more teachers and students to try their latest offering. It is said that lowering the price of the iPhone X won't make much sense for Apple so it might just stop the production of the particular device. The main reason is attributed to the fact that the $329 iPad released in 2017 was sold out like hot cakes with over 44 million units selling out across the world.

If you thought you could get around buying the more expensive iPad Pro and still enjoy the same Apple Pencil features, you'd be sorely mistaken. But the city could see more of Apple in the future.

Apple on Friday proposed a batch of at least nine new accessibility characters, according to Emojipedia.
