As Apple is holding an event on Tuesday which is focused more on education that teases “Creative New Ideas for Teachers and Students“. The previous rumours about the event suggested a release of a cheaper MacBook but now it appears as Apple is focused on releasing a cheaper iPad. According to Bloomberg report that a low-cost iPad will be announced alongside a new education software next week.
Rumours previously suggested Apple is preparing to launch a $259 budget iPad model this year, as it attempts for a comeback into the US education market that it had lost to Google and Microsoft. A cheaper iPad should help push Apple’s ambitions in the classroom, especially as the 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 will likely replace the MacBook Air at under $1,000. Since Apple hasn’t majorly refreshed the MacBook Air since 2010, and the model it currently sells is hugely out of date given its $999 price tag. The cheaper MacBook isn’t expected until later in the year.
