Apple are holding a press event next week, the event takes place on Tuesday the 27th of March and the event will be focusing on education. It is possible that we may see a new budget 9.7 inch iPad at the event.
Previous rumors have suggested that the cheaper 13 inch MacBook could launch at the event, along with a new cheaper MacBook Air. There is also the possibly of a cheaper iPad as this would be ideal for the education market.
Apple are working on some new iPad Pro tablets, these will launch later in the year, possibly at WWDC in June or at the iPhone X event in September or October.
The last thing we heard about the budget iPad was that the device will cost around $259, this is about $70 cheaper than the current entry level iPad. This cheaper device could open up a new market for Apple with customers who want cheaper devices. The lower price would also appeal to the education market.
It will be interesting to see exactly what Apple has planned for their press event next week , as soon as we get some more details on what they have planned, we will let you guys know.
