Microsoft unveils more cheap hardware, Teams features, and pens for education

At the Bett educational technology conference in London, Microsoft has announced cheaper Surface Go pens, new Teams integrations with educational software, and a range of third-party Windows laptops and two-in-one devices with prices as low as $189.

Microsoft has felt new competitive pressure from cheap Chromebooks. The devices, which run Google's Chrome OS, threaten to displace Windows, especially within the United States. The company's response to this started in earnest in 2017 with the release of Windows 10 S. This locked-down, restricted version of Windows 10 blocks the use of arbitrary software, a measure that should act as something of a safeguard against ill-behaved and malicious applications. S should bring to Windows at least some of the robustness that Chrome OS sports. Paired with this version were cut-price Windows systems designed to be physically robust (and hence classroom friendly), in both a mix of laptop and two-in-one form factors.

The seven education systems announced today are:

Dealmaster: Take $150 off a 10.5-inch Apple iPad Pro

Ars Technica - January 22, 2019 - 8:55pm

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is headlined by a deal on Apple's 10.5-inch iPad Pro, the 64GB model of which is currently down to $500 at Amazon. While this model technically launched in 2017, it still retails for $650, which makes this a $150 discount.

While some users have been able to fulfill Apple's promise of turning the iPad Pro into their primary work computer, most people have not. Taken purely as a tablet, though, this is still a premium device. Though the 10.5-inch Pro doesn't have the thinner bezels, flatter edges and brand new chipset of the latest models, its A10X processor and 4GB of RAM are still more than fast enough for most needs, and its 120Hz display is still bright and ultra-smooth. There's no USB-C port, but there is a 3.5mm headphone jack and a Touch ID button for those who don't want to give those up just yet.

To be clear, Apple's basic 9.7-inch iPad is still the best value for those who just want to do basic tablet things, and the newer iPad Pros are better suited for heavier-duty work. But at this price, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is at least a more realistic buy for consumers who want a higher-end tablet for media consumption, gaming, and some light computing on the side.

Apple pushed software updates for macOS and iOS today. They are minor releases that simply offer a few bug fixes and security updates, with no new features—and there are no new features in any of the beta releases for these versions of the operating systems, either.

iOS 12.1.3 fixes a scrolling bug in Messages, an iPad Pro-specific audio bug, and a graphical error in some photos, and it addresses some CarPlay disconnects experienced by owners of the three new iPhone models released in late 2018. It also fixes two minor bugs related to the company's HomePod smart speaker.

Apple's release notes for iOS 12.1.3 are as follows:
