Apple, one of the world’s foremost technology company, has recently unveiled novel applications and an iPad tablet at a discounted price. This step of Apple is targeted towards capturing the education industry as it looks out to regain the impetus it lost to Alphabet’s Google in the classroom technology market space. Apple introduced a revamped version of its 9.7-inch iPad at an event in Chicago, which will be sold as at US$299.0 to schools and students and US$329.0 to general consumers. The revamped iPad provides support to Apple Pencil, which will cost an extra US$99 and can be utilized for sketching and handwritten notes. Another announcement that Apple made was about ‘Schoolwork’, a new educational app, which is designed to help teachers in creating assignments for students and keep a watch on their progress.

Previously, the classroom teacher administration app was iPad-focused but now it would also work on Mac computers, starting from this June, Apple said. This new app will be offering 200 gigabytes of free storage through its iCloud service to teachers and students so that they can access documents, photos, and various other digital content from any internet-connected device. Normally, Apple offers only 5 gigabytes for free and 200 gigabytes costs US$3 per month. The company also displayed a new, free curriculum, named as ‘Everyone Can Create,’ which enables teachers to incorporate music, drawing, filmmaking, and photography into their lessons.
