Apple turns hat around, sits backwards on chair, pitches iPad to schools

Re: Tim's in iCloud Cookoo land. The Pencil needs to be $25 dollars, not $89 for school use.

There is a $USD50 pencil option?!?! Thank FireTruck - I was worried it would be out of reach to most parents.

To recap, here are the main differences between the new 9.7-inch iPad and the previous generation:

it supports Apple Pencil

it has the A10 Fusion chip

it comes in a new shade of gold that's slightly pinker (though not as pink as the original rose gold)

Such innovation.

Tell me, can my twins both use it for school work? (No - only one iTunes account)

Is it a device that lots of people use in the workplace/not for electronic babysitting? (No - just no)

Will there be a discount to make it more school friendly? (No)

Does it come with a keyboard? (No)

I could go on, but really, like the product, no one cares.
