iPad in Education

Students love learning with iPad because it’s portable, capable and easy to use. It features a gorgeous 10.2-inch Retina display, powerful A13 Bionic chip, Wi-Fi and 4G LTE Advanced6, all-day battery life7 and advanced cameras, so students can get a leg up in geometry, learn a new language and attend virtual classes. Apple Pencil makes note-taking a breeze. Attach a full‑size SmartKeyboard for comfortable typing5. And with iPadOS 14 and amazing apps on the App Store, including augmented reality (AR) experiences, learning with iPad is unbelievably fun.
