Special Apple in Education event planned

Apple has just announced an event focusing on the all important arena of technology in education. The event will take place on Tuesday, March 27 at Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago, with the keynote, centered around “creative new ideas for teachers and students”, commencing at 10:00 a.m. Central Time.




The last time Apple held a similar event was in New York City in January 2012, where it announced iBooks 2 with interactive textbooks, iBooks Author, and a new version of iTunes U for iPad.


So what should we expect this time around? There’s a bunch of rumors swirling already about possible hardware and software announcements that could be made during the event, including :


iOS 11.3 availability with ClassKit
A cheaper 9.7 inch iPad for education for $259, currently it’s price point is $329.
A cheaper MacBook Air for $799 to $899, currently it’s price point starts at $999.
The AirPower charging mat


We can look forward to hearing the facts on March 27th!




Apple to release an even bigger iPhone?

Apparently, Apple will release three new smartphone models this year, to be announced in the Fall.


What could they possibly be?


Well, we’re essentially, probably, maybe, looking at a more affordable iPhone X, an updated iPhone X, and one high-end model that could be the largest iPhone ever, featuring a nearly 6.5-inch edge-to-edge display. The body of the device will be roughly the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus, but the display will be about an inch larger.


The updated iPhone X will reportedly  feature a next-generation processor, maybe a gold color option, and maybe a dual-SIM card capability. Here’s hoping?


The cheaper iPhone X model would have an LCD screen, a glass back, and aluminum edges.


All of this, obvs, is rumorific. But, it always is. We kind of like the ideas in this particular batch of rumors, though.
