IPad's attractive 9.7-inch Retina display delivers gorgeous detail and vivid colors, and features a higher-resolution touch sensor that enables Apple Pencil support. However, the thing that drives our attention here, is the launch of upgraded 9.7-inch iPad, which is "most affordable" iPad yet, according to Apple. It will work with the new iPad model, and is colorful, meant to appeal to younger students.

The Crayon doesn't come with pressure sensitivity, which makes sense because it isn't for artists, but does angle-sensing and palm-rejection rather well. Apple's optional pencils also sell for $89 (N32,040) and consumers, $99 (N35,640).

The price of the new device starts at $329 - unchanged from the company's entry level iPad.

Apple's latest event was a pushback to the growing presence of Google Chromebooks in classrooms across America. The new model also includes a faster processor, stereo speakers and supports LTE if you want to connect even without WiFi.

Although the new iPad doesn't look that different on the outside there are plenty of new features including support for Apple's Pencil stylus.

"This new 9.7-inch iPad takes everything people love about our most popular iPad and makes it even better for inspiring creativity and learning", said Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of Product Marketing.
