The iPad 4 and iPad Mini bring more options into the tablet space. But ultimately, the education conversation around these devices comes down to price and teaching quality. Apple announced a new iPad 4, iPad Mini and iBook Author update on Tuesday, Oct. 23, in a live-streamed event. Since the first generation of the tablet entered the market in 2010, the company has sold 100 million of them. This news is important in the education world because 2,500 schools in the United States use digital textbooks that were created in iBook Author. The updates to iBook Author include the ability to use new templates, import fonts and insert mathematical expressions. The mathematical expressions capability is a big deal, Apple CEO Tim Cook said. But the application doesn’t work for all publishers.
