This isn't a surprising move, but end of the day, teachers will have to pick between the cheaper Chromebooks and a more expensive Apple device. I hope that Apple launches initiatives to discount devices for schools overwhelmingly attended by low-income students - experience with Apple devices is as close to a job requirement as possible for many high-paying jobs in tech, and letting ~$100 determine a student's ability to learn seems shortsighted.

@nivo0o0 same here! My iPad Air 2 is due for a refresh so I can run Arkit and build those "amazing experiences" for kids! I don't really care about True Tone and better camera...
Its like a regular old iPad ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ Gonna keep on my Air 2
