Apple might debut low-priced iPad with updated Pencil at Chicago event

26 March 2018

Given the education focus of the event, ClassKit seems nearly guaranteed to show up here.

It's still unclear how this new phone would look, but it sounds like it will unfold to be an iPad. While the iPad is probably not yet at the point where it can completely replace a Mac or PC, it's certainly an excellent tool both for entertainment and education - and this event will likely focus on the latter.

Regardless, rumours about Apple's product lineup are rarely accurate more than a few months out, much less several years, so any prediction about what the company will release in 2020 is best taken with a grain of salt.

It appears Apple is once again determined to conquer the educational market after seeing the success of Google and Microsoft in the recent years.

The MacBook Air's looking a bit long in the tooth now, but slots in nicely as the entry-level model in Apple's line-up.

Justin Thomas reaches match play semifinals
Thomas, who won the most recent major, the PGA Championship last August, will have a week to refresh before the April 5-8 U.S. Swedish 13th seed Alex Noren will face American 32nd seed Kevin Kisner in the other semi-final on Sunday morning.

While the iPad seems to be a great device for the classroom, Google has convinced many schools with its Chromebooks.

In any case, regardless of whether Apple won't give us any hints, despite everything we have a couple of thoughts with respect to what could occur amid the occasion on Tuesday.

One big unknown, however, is price.

Word on the grapevine is the newer Pencil sticks to your iPad by the power of magnetism, and might have a clip.

Blackcaps vs England: First test, day three
Just when runs were coming easy, the latter threw his wicket away in the 106th over of the innings as he fell to Stuart Broad. New Zealand had declared their first innings on 427 for 8, setting England a target of 369 to avoid an innings defeat.

While new iPhones, Watches, MacBooks and the rumored cheaper HomePod are very unlikely, there are plenty of products in Apple's portfolio which could be updated at an education-focused event. Apple's high-end iPad variants are the only ones that can be used with the Pencil, but the company is reportedly updating its hardware so that the smaller iPad, as well as the iPhone, will be compatible with it.

Kuo also added that the upcoming 9.7-inch iPad model will have a market share of 70 percent of all iPads shipped throughout 2018. Along with a more affordable iPad, there even are rumblings that next week Apple would introduce some new pieces of software designed towards classroom use.

However, Apple will be achieving this milestone irrespective of the Make in India strategy as the company manages to ship 3 million devices every year.
