Apple has a fairly clear strategy for its iPad product line, with an option from $ 329 to infinity (approximately) and a handful of screen size options available for every price point. Apple's status on the tablet market means there's no shortage of accessories, but Apple has natively supported the Logitech Crayon for the 9.7-inch iPad, and now it's adding support for more devices.
Apparently, Apple told Nilay Patel, editor-in-chief of The Verge, that the next release of iOS 12 will support the Logitech Crayon "iPad Pros". Unfortunately, it is not clear if Patel referred to the new iPad Pros or the entire range of iPad Pros. This is an important distinction given the hassle that users could seek Apple Pencil support on different iPads. The suspicion is that Apple will release a new version of iOS 1
2 on Monday to add support for the various subscription services that are expected to be announced.
At first glance, this seems like a good thing, because behind the Crayon is the idea that it works right on the iPad after you turn it on, without having to do anything else and having more devices than 329 Dollar support iPad seems to be a plus. The strange thing is that the plan is to add support for the iPad Pro product line only. The Crayon was designed for the education market (it can not be purchased outside the education channel of Apple.) The reason why only the cheapest iPad was supported was that the device was also developed for the education market. It's unclear how popular the $ 800 + iPad Pro series is in education and why choose an iPad Pro, why choose the Crayon with the Apple Pencil?
