This is pretty exciting – we saw some great new classroom features come to the iPad in iOS 11 – I’m hoping to see more of that, and as a Mac Sys admin working at a University right now, a few more tools for the Mac would be welcomed, too. The most intriguing rumours are around Apple’s laptop line – with talk of a possible rev to the education workhorse, the MacBook Air.
