Apple's new push for iPads in schools

Techstination feature for Thursday, April 5, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      Many parents have known for a long time that putting an iPad in the hands of kids can be a magical experience.   Especially on car trips…or in restaurants.   Now Apple is competing with those Chromebooks that have become so popular in schools….with a new iPad designed to win over more of the education market.  The new 9.7 inch iPad, priced at 329 dollars for consumers and 299 dollars for schools…and will work with the Apple Pencil…for drawing and more.   Product Marketing VP Greg Joswiak…

“It’s incredibly fast, fluid and precise.   And it feels completely natural to use.  Well we wanted to bring that amazing experience to even more people.  So now our most affordable iPad has support for our most creative tool, Apple Pencil.”
