New Apple iPad will start shipping in US on April 2

Ivan, 28 March 2018

Apple's new iPad will start its retail run in the US this week - T-Mobile and Verizon have confirmed they will carry it.

Apple's own store will be able to ship ordered iPads starting April 2 - the same date that AT&T is delivering its pre-orders.

Meanwhile BestBuy is offering a $25 gift card with an iPad purchase.

In reality the 2018 version of "the iPad" costs as much as its predecessor but brings support for Apple's $99 Pencil and offers a $30 reduction in price for schools, which can have it starting at $299.

If a student goes for a combination of the Apple iPad, the $99.95 Logitech Slim Folio Case with keyboard and the $89 Apple Pencil they'll need to shell out $500 and that's pushing on twice the price of a keyboard-equipped Chromebook device. Well, at least you can save $40 by buying the Logitech Crayon stylus instead of the Apple Pencil - score!

Finally, while the special $299 is only for schools, you may still qualify the $309 discounted price for individual students and educators. It covers current and newly accepted college students and their parents, school faculty and staff and homeschool teachers.

You know Google is doing the same thing? So I'm guessing your an android user who hates Apple and has a Neus device? Education is one of the only places no one has taken over as such yet.
