Julie Garcia, a math tutor at Innovation Middle School, is one of the first to use few of the over 25,000 iPads the San Diego Unified School District purchased from world’s most valuable company Apple current year.
Now customers are near to get big price break. Barclays Plc reported that the smaller iPad may cost almost $249. That evaluates against $499 to $829 for the present iPad.
