It is possible that the new tablet from Apple will combine two attractive features. First of all, the new product will be inexpensive, but this, as follows from the new message, will not prevent it from being characterized by an important feature, now peculiar only to the iPad Pro. And the tablet is not the only device that could soon please technogiant from Cupertino.
Many users are interested to learn about the features of a relatively inexpensive iPad model, which Apple is likely to please the public soon. As noted by Jacob Kastrenakes on the pages of the resource theverge.com, the upcoming release of the new product may be supported by the stylus Pencil. Today this accessory is only supported by iPad Pro models.
This assumption came from kgi Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (Ming-Chi Kuo) and was considered by MacRumors resource. The report notes: “the new low-cost 9.7-inch iPad … will probably support Apple Pencil.” Ming-Chi Kuo believes that in this way Apple can try to show the difference of its product from low-cost tablets running the Android operating system.
As noted further, Ming-Chi Kuo is an analyst, voicing the most reliable rumors about the hardware from Apple. But to date, there is no certainty that the assumption will be confirmed by the release of the real product.
It is noted that the analyst did not say whether the new iPad, like the Pro models, will be characterized by a high refresh rate. But this could be the most obvious sign of the probability of support for a new tablet computer stylus.
It is expected that Apple will please many connoisseurs of its products with the new iPad next Tuesday, March 27, 2018. And the invitation to the upcoming presentation clearly points to Pencil. It should be noted that stylus support is common for many low-cost Chromebooks that have found application in schools. And if Apple wants to compete with other offerings in this market segment, supporting the stylus with a tablet designed primarily for students could be a natural solution suggested by the practice of using such devices.
It is not excluded that Apple will offer not one model of inexpensive iPad tablet, but several. However, the Network is considering a tablet designed for education, which will be offered to consumers at a price of 259 us dollars — an updated version of the current iPad, the price of which is 329 us dollars. As expected, the mass production of new tablets may begin in the second quarter of this year. However, if the debut of the new item will take place during the upcoming presentation, it is possible that the production of inexpensive iPad has already started.
As previously noted, the theme of Apple’s presentation, which will take place on March 27, 2018, will be ” creative new ideas for teachers and students.”
It is expected that during the presentation, students can enjoy relatively inexpensive models of iPad and MacBook. As noted earlier, the new MacBook Air with a 13.3-inch Retina Display screen, whose resolution is 2560 x 1600 pixels, may be offered to consumers at a price in the range of 799-899 us dollars.
“Hint” on the Apple Pencil was the invitation for the March presentation of technogiant from Cupertino. After all, the logo of the company conducting the event on this invitation is stylized as hand-drawn.
The iPad Pro tablet supporting Apple Pencil was shown to the public during the presentation, which was held in March 2016. iPad supports the platform Swift Playgrounds, educational software.
Spread in 70 colleges and universities in Europe has already received the program Apple “Everybody Can Code” (“everyone can Write code”). Its main feature is the focus on the development of applications for mobile devices.
Apple Pencil in the company’s new product?
More innovative technologies — virtual and augmented reality-are gradually beginning to find their application in education. It is possible that the phrase ” Let’s take a field trip.”(“Let’s go on an excursion (field trip/practice)”) on the invitation for these new technologies to conduct research and business, and practices, a tour of most classrooms.
From 4 to 8 June 2018 in San Jose in McEnery Convention Center will be one of the most important conferences of the high — tech industry-Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), designed for developers of applications for devices from Apple. But users traditionally will learn a lot of interesting at the end of WWDC, during which technogiant from Apple frequently releases beta versions of their new operating systems. It is expected that this year the conference participants will be introduced to iOS 12, designed for the company’s popular tablets and smartphones, and the next version of MacOS for Mac.
