I like to share with you when Apple started its iPad indevers and how much they have improved. Not only has iPad’s design and technology improved with each new model, but iPad has also had great impact on the society as a whole. Many schools and business are adapting to the change of using iPads versus textbooks in schools. The iPad Tablet has really taken over the market in Tablet sales since they have but first designed. I also like to share the Apple products are still leading in Tablet sales compared to all the rest.
Apple’s iPad was first released in April 2010, within twelve months later, March 2011 the iPad 2 was released (The Apple Case Study, 2013). Then twelve months later iPad 3 arrived into the market and so on up to the current iPad 5. The Apple product development program reflects a process of constant improvement (The Apple Case Study, 2013). The new Apple product development program reflects a process of constant improvement, always having a new product coming out every twelve months with better performance each time. For Apple to be the number one in Tablet sales they have to perform at high level of quality, with better improved Tablets each time. To do this they are always updating their research to make a better iPad for its consumers.
Apple never holds back on new product sales of old established product lines (The Apple Case Study, 2013). Their own greatest problem is competing with itself, by selling more of their own Apple products, such as the iPhone having more sales then iPads (The Apple Case Study, 2013). The reason this happens is because Apple never stops developing better products. Every time Apple comes out with new model it is better in more than one category. The new iPad 5 has a much thinner design, hence why it’s called the Apple iPad Air. The new iPad 5 has a faster processor, thinner sleek style, and is lighter in weight. The iPad 5 battery life has much longer battery life expectancy (The Apple Case Study, 2013). Some other feature on newer iPad is bigger storage capacity, better screen resolution, better camera, and more up to date software installed (The Apple Case Study, 2013).
Studies have been done with many schools replacing text books with iPads and using Ebooks and other programs. Christine Quinn, a speaker of the New York City Council, has suggested replacing textbooks and replacing them with iPads which cost the city $100 million a year with tablets (Elliott, Philip, 2013). Last February, 2012 the schools in Los Angeles allocated $50 million to start buying tablets for every student; the project is expected to cost $500 million by the time it is completed (Elliott, Philip, 2013). The schools in McAllen, Texas, distributed 6,800 Apple tablets last year at a cost of $20.5 million. Even a school named Eanes which is Independent School District in Austin is distributing more than 2,000 iPads to every student (Elliott, Philip, 2013). This ranges from kindergarteners to high school...
