What is Apple's Role in Education?

Google, for long, has monopolised the education spectrum, with its chrome books and all other facilities offered to schools and colleges worldwide. Though Apple had been trying hard to crack an entry, the budget was a concern. Apple products couldn't stoop to the price level of that of Google's.

But, the Cupertino giant was on constant trial to beat its limitations and to raise a threat to Google. As a part of this, Apple has announced a refresh of its iPad in an attempt to deepen its approach to the education market. CEO Tim Cook also laid out a number of education initiatives at recent event held in Chicago. The new 32-gigabyte, 9.7-inch iPad, which will be sold to general consumers for US$329 and to students for $299, has a more powerful processor called Fusion A10 chip. The device sports a 2048-by- 1536-pixel retina display with a ppi of 264. 

The Apple team showcased a number of new apps that make use of the company’s augmented reality development kit, including apps that allow students to take a virtual walk through a museum, interact with wildlife in the virtual wild, and even dissect a virtual frog. Apple also unveiled a new free app, Schoolwork, to help teachers handle assignments and handouts.
