The iOS giant decided to introduce a cheaper iPad mainly aimed at students.
The Apple products are barely described as cheap and guess what, Apple took notice of it and planned to work on that. According to the top Apple news, the smartphone giant has officially unleashed a cheaper version on iPad for the people.
The rumors of a cheap iPad had been going around recently, and Apple made it official by making an announcement at an event today at Lane Technical College Prep High School in Chicago.
The iPad will be of 9.7-inch with Apple Pencil support. The cheap iPad will also be available in three colors, in grey, silver, and gold finish. The pocket-friendly iPad will include a HD Facetime camera, an 8 megapixel rear camera, Apple’s 10 fusion chip, Touch ID, and LTE option.
The vice president of Apple’s product marketing, Greg Joswiak said “iPad is our vision for the future of computing and hundreds of millions of people around the world use it every day at work, in school and for play. This new 9.7-inch iPad takes everything people love about our most popular iPad and makes it even better for inspiring creativity and learning,”
The Apple Pencil used to be a feature of an expensive iPad, yet this time it has been introduced for this cheaper version too that will give the users the ability to be more creative with their work, from sketching to writing notes for later purposes.
The new iPad can be bought for $329 but the students will be able to buy it for $299. They will also get 200 GB of free storage in iCloud instead of the previous limit of 5 GB.
Also, Apple has introduced Schoolwork, a new app to be used for digital classroom assignments but according to the latest Apple news, the app will not be available till June.
