The new 9.7-inch iPad geared towards education will retail from R4999 in South Africa, the iStore confirmed to Gearburn.

Marketed towards schools and students, the 9.7-inch iPad is a notable refresh from the outgoing model, sporting Apple Pencil support, the A10 Fusion chipset, and a host of education-orientated apps.

The iStore is offering the device in three colours, namely silver, space grey and gold, and two storage options: 32GB and 128GB. Additionally, users can also opt for WiFi only and LTE and WiFi options.
