A new low-cost iPad with a 9.7-inch screen and classroom focus is practically guaranteed to see daylight on March 27, unlike that oft-rumored affordable 13-inch MacBook.
An education-focused Apple event on March 27 sounds perfect for the announcement of an oft-rumored new 9.7-inch iPad and 13-inch MacBook.
It's certainly not surprising to hear Apple could be working on two new iPad Pro variants, but the smaller 2018 model is expected to measure around 11 inches in screen diagonal.
Speculation is slowly ramping up about a $999 or so 13-inch MacBook with a high-res screen due out by the end of Q2, alongside a refreshed 9.7-inch iPad.
It's certainly not surprising to hear a (relatively) affordable new iPhone and iPad are in the pipeline, but Apple could also gear up to launch (more) budget-friendly MacBook Air and HomePod versions this year.
