Apple launch live 2018 iPad event

The third-party stylus will be compatible with the new 9.7-inch iPad (2018), which is going on sale for just $299 to schools. Schoolwork builds on the success of Apple's Classroom app, which is used in schools around the world to help integrate iPad into the classroom.

"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", he said.

But in elementary and high schools, Apple has gone from teacher's pet to the back of the class.

Apple executives said the company will release a iPad model that works with its Apple Pencil accessory and features an upgraded A10 Fusion chip, the same CPU that powers the iPhone 7.

Alleged leaks of the upcoming iOS 12 software have shown a "ClassKit" platform for developers to create puzzles, tests and lesson plans for students.

Advanced sensors measure both pressure and tilt, and provide pixel-perfect accuracy and low latency for activities in apps like Notability, Pages, Numbers, Keynote and Microsoft Office. You can check out the new iPad on Apple's retail store. Apple's 501 stores in 21 countries have already taught almost 5,000 hands-on Teacher Tuesday sessions on topics including coding and app design, movie and music creation, and presentations or spreadsheets.

The major new component is an app named "Schoolwork" - a cloud-based piece of software that enables teachers to assign and track homework and other student projects.

- You can check in on students' progress by tapping on individual students to see a detailed view of all of their work, or see completion percentages on assignments you've already sent out.

The program is clearly focused on Apple positioning itself as a global supplier of educational instruments and processes to classrooms.

At an event in Chicago today Apple showed off its newest version of the tablet and it's created to be much more affordable than past models.

"We believe today's announcements will have a small impact on their education business, but an immaterial impact on their overall business", Munster wrote about Apple in a blog post today. This is designed for users to give, receive and incorporate feedback within a document. The invitation described it as introducing "creative new ideas for teachers and students". The existing Classroom iPad app, which lets teachers see what students are doing on their iPads, will also be available for MacBooks in beta in June.
