The Apple online store is down ahead of Apple's education event in Chicago today.

However, this new 9.7-inch iPad works with the optional Apple Pencil stylus, including the tilt and pressure functions that work with the iPad Pro line. Apple also introduced a new version of Pages, Numbers and Keynote that support Apple Pencil drawings and editing.

It seems that the market is flooded with new tablets from various companies right now but everyone remembers that Apple were the original source of the idea with its iPad. Microsoft's Windows devices ranked second with 22 percent of the market, followed by Apple's iPad and Macintosh laptops. Analyst Future Source found that Google gained an edge in the classroom because its devices are more affordable and linked to Google's popular software. Market research firm Futuresource, which tracks shipments of computing devices to K-12 schools and districts, shows Apple's share of mobile computing devices (that is, pretty much everything except desktops) in the USA peaked in 2012, at more than 50 percent.

Up to this point we've gotten a lot of Apple talking points about iPad and Apple in schools, basically.

That evacuation deal was the first agreed since the offensive on the Eastern Ghouta was stepped up a month ago. This would offer them a powerful patron that was absent in Eastern Ghouta .

Apple increased iCloud storage for schools up to 200GB, and unveiled the Apple School Manager system. I'm also looking for the ways Apple bakes privacy into its iPad software, an advantage it frequently touts over Google.

The largest change is support for the Apple Pencil. For consumers it'll be the same $329 starting price.

Apple also boosted its apps-for-education offerings; among them, creating digital books - iBooks Author is used on a Mac for this - will also become available on the iPad. If you cast your mind back to nearly a year ago, we reported that Spotify was working on an official Apple Watch app, as revealed by one of its new hires, Andrew Chang. New versions of its iWork productivity apps will work with the stylus, which costs $89 for students, $10 below the regular price.

"For my classrooms, it just means we'll have access to more creative tools than we've had before", Jennifer Smith, a Chicago-based middle school teacher, told ABC affiliate WLS in Chicago. In 2013, Apple struck a deal with LA Unified for the purchase of over 40,000 iPads using bond funds. "We believe that technology could help deliver a truly unique and personalized experience to students and teachers".
