Apple's annual spring event will be held in a high school in Chicago this year.
The official Apple iWork apps like Pages, Numbers and KeyNote support the Apple Pencil as well as a huge number of additional apps. It is powered by Apple's A10 Fusion that comes embedded with M10 co-processor.
With support for Apple Pencil, users can do quite a lot of things on this new 9.7-inch iPad.
The 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models are better in this scenario because they can run up to three apps at the same time and that is associated with a large amount of RAM they feature.
The display resolution on the new iPad is 2048 x 1536 pixels, which comes to 264 ppi.
In addition to a possible low-priced iPad, tomorrow's Apple event could also provide more details about ClassKit, a software framework for educational applications that appeared in iOS 11.3, the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system now available in beta. Its imaging department is handled by an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera as its main shooter, while a FaceTime HD camera graces the front of the device. That's likely to give you better performance, and also Apple is touting some key education-centric tweaks to iOS that will likely give its target audience, more out of their purchase. That gets you the 32GB, Wi-Fi-only model. The cellular version include 4G LTE support. But from an innovation perspective, the new iPad is hardly different than last year's model, which itself was hardly different than the three-year-old iPad Air 2. It also promoted the new annotation abilities of its latest tablet, that would make it easy for teachers to mark up work on the device. The company is promoting the iPad as the ideal classroom tool which lets teachers and students express themselves using the technology. However, Apple isn't likely to announce a city-wide program for iPads in schools at the event, according to Bloomberg, which cited people familiar with the company's plans.
As for its advantages, the iPad has seamless access to millions of apps in the Apple store, and many of these are well-suited for the school setting. The apps will now support the Apple Pencil, so users can add drawings, illustrations and diagrams to their documents.
Apple, Google and Amazon are constantly battling it out with each other as the most valuable company in the world. The device will be cheaper for students. The Mac version of Classroom will be available in beta starting in June. Schools will also get 200GB of free iCloud storage, which basically ruins excuses like "my dog ate my USB stick" from work-shy students.
