  • Scott Stein 3/27/2018 3:58:25 PM
    Big thing today: Apple’s expanding Pencil support and betting that helps with creative schoolwork. And that new iPad looks like the best one for the price.
  • James Martin 3/27/2018 3:58:28 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 3:58:33 PM
    "I secretly love school. I mean my mom knows about it."

    These kids are adorable
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 3:58:53 PM
    "It's the hardest job in the world I think, and you're nailing it," one kid says on the video. Adorable
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 3:59:05 PM
    Tim Cook is now back on stage
  • Scott Stein 3/27/2018 3:59:12 PM
    I am thinking about my kids, and how I keep leaving them for events these past few weeks!
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 3:59:26 PM
    "This is an important day for Apple and we hope it's important day for students and teachers around the world too."
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 4:00:12 PM
    "All of the amazing augmented reality apps being created specifically for learning put the ability to explore the world in the hands of our students and teachers" like never before
  • Scott Stein 3/27/2018 4:00:16 PM
    Reminder: The original iPad Pro debuted in late 2015. Getting Pencil into more iPads: It’s about time.
  • Scott Stein 3/27/2018 4:00:49 PM
    Does new iPad have smart connector? Not sure.
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 4:01:18 PM
    "I think it's an honor to support teachers with a new generation of" apps and software like the Schoolwork app
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 4:01:55 PM
    "We've been at this 40 years. And we care deeply about education. We believe that our place in the interaction of technology and the liberal arts makes it possible for us to create" powerful tools that amplify technology. This is something only Apple can do.
  • Scott Stein 3/27/2018 4:02:01 PM
    I’d say the iPad is really the lower-priced model that should be there. I don’t know what the rest of the model landscape looks like, or storage configurations, etc
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 4:02:07 PM
    "That's something only Apple can do"
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 4:02:32 PM

    “Oh homework. I hate you.” My kid would like this.
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 4:03:50 PM
    Apple shows students filming a watermelon crashing into a million pieces and a kid licking the watermelon off the iPad, but I don't think the iPad is actually water resistant. That's one thing I personally would love from an iPad
  • Scott Stein 3/27/2018 4:04:17 PM
    Is that John Goodman’s voice?

  • Scott Stein 3/27/2018 4:04:55 PM
    The video was pretty cute. A big leverage of creative tools. No big change in making iPad more laptop-like, though
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 4:05:01 PM
