Ahead of Apple’s education-focused event later today, the company’s online store has gone down. This is typical of Apple as it is known to take down its online store before its media events to prepare for the release of new hardware.
Apple is expected to unveil new lost-cost 9.7-inch iPad at its ‘Let’s take a field trip’ event later today. This low-cost iPad is focused towards students and the education market. It is rumored to have Apple Pencil support which should be a huge boon for creative students.
Apple is also expected to announce some new education-focused software at the event today. While there were rumors of the company launching a new cheap MacBook at the event as well, that is unlikely to happen now.
