Some additional details of the presentation were addressed by the resource cnbc.com in the article, Anita Balakrishnan (Balakrishnan Anita).
Invitation to the presentation gives not much hints about what Apple this time will surprise the audience. On the invitation of a stylized Apple logo.
According to rumors, technogiant from Cupertino is working on less expensive versions of the MacBook and the iPad which may see the light at the presentation, the theme of which is education. It is interesting to note that the event will be held in the new campus of Apple in Cupertino Park, and in Chicago.
As reported with reference to digitimes.com and the famous KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (Ming-Chi Kuo), Apple plans to finally to please another model of its MacBook Air. Currently, the predecessor model of laptop offered to consumers at a price of 999 USD.
It is expected that the new computer will be a laptop “entry-level”. According to rumors, the laptop will feature a 13.3-inch Retina Display screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. It is assumed that the price will be in the range between 799 and 899 US dollars.
Apple for several years working to implement the iPad as a tool for learning. According to recent rumors, the company might introduce the model of their entry-level tablet, which will be offered to consumers at a price approximately 259 USD. And this price is lower than the 329 USD, which is the current model of the device.
And if you look to the invitation for the upcoming presentation, we can consider a “hint” on the probability of announcement concerning the Apple iPad or the Pencil, as Apple logo stylized hand-drawn. In this context, one should recall that in March of 2016 presentation of the company Apple has presented new iPad Pro with support for Apple Pencil. The iPad supports Swift Playgrounds, platforms, educational software in the form of game.
Apple program “Everybody Can Code” (“everyone can Write code”), focused on creating mobile applications, spread across 70 colleges and universities in Europe.
As the technologies of augmented and virtual reality also began to find a use in the classroom, Apple is also showing their interest in this innovative field of new approaches to teaching, which probably is expressed by the inscription on the invitation: “Let’s take a field trip.”. One translation of this phrase might be: “Let’s go on an excursion (field trip/practice)”. The new technology is remarkable in that tour, and an academic trip, and the practice can now take place directly in the classroom.
In this context it is interesting to recall that in early summer of this year will be another significant technological event held by Apple. We are talking about the traditional conference for developers Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) that opens June 4, 2018 in San Jose. More detail what can please the forthcoming conference was considered by Mike Sorrentino (Mike Sorrentino) on the resource page cnet.com.
There will be all that will interest developers for numerous products offered on the market by Apple. The company always uses the opening conference presentation in order to show users what they can expect from the further development of the software we develop for Apple platforms. Often show the public the beta versions of operating systems. While the final version is produced later, but in the course of the year.
This year the conference will run until 8 June. It is the second time will be held in the McEnery Convention Center. At WWDC developers also show software that helps them to create the application. This and SiriKit for a personal assistant that is integrated in devices from Apple and other software tools. Apple also likely will show not only the evaluation version 12 iOS for iPhone and iPad, but another MacOS for its proposed computers.
During WWDC can also be shown and new devices. We can talk about column HomePod and computer. But don’t expect that at WWDC audience will appreciate the next-generation iPhone.
