This Apple event was about progress

This week's education-focused Apple event was as much about who was on stage as it was about the subjects of which they spoke. Included were more women than men, three teachers and one former-teacher (also a woman of color,) and a whole lot of recognition of the efforts of teachers in general. This was a presentation for people.

Today Apple introduced a new iPad for students in schools across the United States. While this iPad will be available for all users, even those that aren't students, the event at which this device was shown was centered on education.

Isn’t Apple’s big secret obvious?

Isn’t Apple’s big secret obvious?

In the past few weeks we've seen some real crazy rumors about what Apple will present today at their big education event. They've included cheaper iPads, a new MacBook Air, and even a new iMac Pro. One wildly maniacal rumor suggested Apple was making a new iPad to fight the last vestiges of resistance in the Android tablet market. But what's most obvious - and most likely - isn't what Apple's hiding. It's what Apple's already made plainly obvious.

Apple Event March 27: Here’s what we expect

An Apple education event was scheduled for March 27th, 2018, and several news outlets suggest there'll be a new iPad. However, as far as what'll ACTUALLY be there, one needs only look back on a similar event that took place in early January of the year 2012. Back then, we expected Apple might reveal a new iPad, a new MacBook - any sort of new hardware, really. In reality, they showed off some new software for teachers and students.

The $2,000 iPhone is coming

The $2,000 iPhone is coming

Like many, I was unsurprised and generally unmoved by the iPhone X. We can blame leaks for that. The event wasn’t exciting, and judging by the opening which brought us words from Steve Jobs’ that had never been made public, it’s clear Apple wanted it to be. Instead, we got exactly what we expected, save for one small detail. Apple is framing the iPhone X as the blueprint for mobile tech moving forward. On a hardware level, that’s great. Elsewhere, that’s a problem.

iPhone 8 hands-on: not quite X, better than 7s

iPhone 8 hands-on: not quite X, better than 7s

The iPhone 8 is what we expected to be the iPhone 7s - but just a little bit better. Or a whole lot better, if you're Apple making the case for skipping this year's expected "s". The iPhone X, on the other hand, has a few innovations that make it a monster compared to previous iPhone models - even compared to the iPhone 8. Or is it?

iPhone X hands-on : Apple’s OLED flagship up close

iPhone X hands-on : Apple’s OLED flagship up close

Familiar, and yet so very different. That's my first impression of the iPhone X, Apple's brand new flagship iOS smartphone, revealed today at the Steve Jobs Theater in California. First things first, arguably the most important thing if you don't want to look stupid when you walk into your nearest Apple Store: it's pronounced "iPhone Ten", not "iPhone X".

iPhone X release date and pricing details

iPhone X release date and pricing details

With the iPhone X's reveal today, Apple turned the iPhone pricing structure on its head. We've grown accustomed to there being two iPhones at the top of the totem poll, then a couple or a few more just below. Before now, that meant the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were at the top, followed by the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus below, followed by the iPhone SE. With the iPhone X , there's a new monster in town.

Apple is taking security to the next level with the introduction of Face ID, a more secure alternative to Touch ID that enables iPhone owners to keep their handset secure. With this technology, an iPhone owner can just look at their phone and it will unlock, no other interaction needed. This feature works with third-party apps (Mint, etc), enabling it to protect data found elsewhere on your phone, as well.
