Apple will reportedly release a new, low-cost iPad aimed at teachers and students at its event in Chicago next week.Bloomberg's Mark Gurman reports that Apple has developed the education-focused device in an attempt to "win back" students and teachers. In recent years, both Microsoft and Google have found success in the education market thanks to their lower cost laptops and tablets.
Apple most recently launched an updated iPad Pro at WWDC last year. The new model came in a different size - 10.5 inches - and included updated features and specs like a better display, smoother scrolling, a faster chip, the ability to multitask among apps, and the same camera that's in the iPhone 7.Bloomberg reports that Apple is also working on a new MacBook laptop that would cost less than $1,000, which would likely replace the MacBook Air. However, that laptop will not be ready in time for next week's event, according to the report.
