As we all know, Apple will launch its first batch of Macs based on Apple silicon in the next few weeks. Although there is a lot of discussion about Apple Silicon’s benefits to ordinary consumers, Apple’s strategy in K-12 and enterprises will bring huge benefits.
About grades: Every Saturday, Bradley Chambers (Bradley Chambers) will publish new articles about Apple in the field of education. Since 2009, he has been managing Apple devices in an educational environment. Through his experience in deploying and managing 100 Macs and 100 iPads, Bradley will focus on the way Apple products operate on a large scale, the story of IT management, and Apple’s approach. Can improve products for students.
In the past decade, Apple’s education strategy has shifted to the iPad as the main device. Although the iPad is an excellent device, in some places traditional laptops are more comfortable or more efficient to use. During this period, the main debate was iPad vs. Chromebook. With Apple Silicon, the discussion may become threefold.
One of the reasons why the iPad is Apple̵
Until 2020, price bidding will continue. The sudden emergence of distance learning means that schools no longer focus on the lowest cost products, but the highest value of students. Many students now use technology 100% of the time during school. Things like battery life, storage space, and processor speed are back to the forefront, and for Apple, the timing is right. Nevertheless.
With the introduction of Apple Silicon, Apple can now directly control its hardware and software. Apple’s A series chips are known for their power saving and fast speed. Modern iPads can be used for many years, until the battery degrades to be unusable.Apple’s original Apple TV HD based on the A series is still one of the fastest set-top boxes on the market in spite of It only runs Apple’s A8 chip. So what does this mean for education?
I believe that Apple can now produce unparalleled flexibility in what kind of laptops can be produced for schools. Is it possible to build an 11-inch MacBook based on Apple Silicon, which is priced at $799 when purchased in bulk, but still runs very fast? I believe so. We may not see it in the first to two years of Apple Silicon’s lifespan, but in a few years, Apple is likely to reduce the cost of A14 in order to install it in a K-12 centralized laptop. future.
Summary of Apple Silicon in K-12
According to my prediction, I may deviate. However, I believe that Apple Silicon will release the potential for mass production of low-cost laptops in K-12, which will run around high-priced laptops running Intel chips. I would love to see an 11-inch Apple Silicon laptop directly targeted at students who can use it for many years.
