Apple will hold an education-focused event on Tuesday that provokes "new creative ideas for teachers and students." Although the rumors suggested that a cheaper MacBook will arrive soon, it seems that Apple will focus on the iPad next week. Bloomberg reports that a "low-cost iPad" will be announced along with new educational software next week.
Rumors suggested that Apple is preparing to launch an iPad model with a budget of $ 259 this year, as it tries to recover the lost ground for both Google and Microsoft in the US educational market. A cheaper iPad should help boost Apple's ambitions in the classroom, especially since price is a key factor in device sales to schools and students.
Bloomberg also reports that a cheaper MacBook laptop is still being developed, and that it will probably replace the MacBook Air for less than $ 1,000. Apple has not much improved the MacBook Air since 2010, and the model it currently sells is very outdated given its price of $ 999. Although the cheapest MacBook is not expected to appear next week, The Verge will be live from the event. Apple with all the latest iPad news.
