Apple’s Field Trip Education Event on March 27: 5 Major Announcements

Affordable iPad

iPad has always been hugely popular among students. Superior design backed by top-notch performance makes Apple’s tablet such a great asset for learners and inspiring artists. Apple wants to make further inroads into this large user base by introducing more affordable iPads.

The tech giant is likely to announce cheaper iPad at the education event. According to the grapevine, the new tablet will be priced somewhere around $259. And if the reports come true, it will be a big shift in gear.

Currently, the company sells $329 iPad at $309 to education customers. Hence, the tech giant may not find it too difficult to cut down the price by $50—70 without making too much effort.

Apple Pencil 2

Though very few reports have predicted the arrival of Apple Pencil 2, I’m still keeping my fingers crossed. I expect the new stylus will be compatible to work with even cheaper tablets. As for specs, it will come with minor improvements.

Affordable MacBook Air

Just like iPad, MacBook Air is enormously loved by students for a couple of main reasons: the svelte look and lower price. Apple is said to unveil a cheaper notebook, specially designed for young learners.

Apple currently offers MacBook Air at $849 (starting price) for education customers. We believe the new notebook would come with some basic spec bumps and be priced at somewhere around $700–$$750. Head over to this post to know more about the MacBook Air 2018 features and price.

Gold-colored iPhone X

Last year, Apple introduced a limited edition PRODUCT RED version of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus last year. Knowing how much love the all-new color got, we expect the tech giant to bring in a new color—possibly gold-colored iPhone X. Who knows it might just liven up the rather slow sales of the smartphone!

ClassKit Apps

Initial betas of iOS 11.3 for the developer and public beta testers had the preferences regarding ClassKit apps for both teachers and students.

Thus, the release of ClassKit at the much-awaited event is well and truly on the cards. The brand new public development framework is said to be fully geared for creating educational apps.

Other Tidbits

There are many other things, which are likely to come out of the shadow. For instance, we might see the launch of AirPower, iOS 11.3, tvOS 11.3, watchOS 4.3, and macOS 10.13.4. The new colors for Apple Watch bands and iPhone and iPad cases are on the cards as well.

And yes, the iPhone SE 2 might also have a wildcard entry at the event. Though very unlikely, I would still put my 50% bucks on the four-inch iPhone!
