iOS in Education. The best classroom experience is better than ever.

Both teachers and students love iPad. It enables endless learning and teaching opportunities with powerful Apple apps, over 80,000 education apps on the App Store, interactive books on every subject in iBooks, and countless iTunes U resources like course materials, lectures and videos from experts around the world.

iOS includes powerful tools designed just for educators. Students can log into any device and make it their own, and teachers can guide students through a lesson, see their progress, and keep them on track.

iPad inspires creativity and hands-on learning with features you won’t find in any other educational tool. Discover apps, interactive books, virtual tours, videos and more that fit each student’s level and learning style. All on a device they already love.

Apps in a class by themselves

The App Store features more than 80,000 educational apps made just for iPad, offering unlimited potential to transform the way teachers teach and students learn.

Your digital teaching assistant


Classroom turns iPad into a powerful teaching assistant, helping a teacher guide students through a lesson, see their progress, and keep them on track. With Classroom, you can easily launch the same app on every student device at the same time, or launch a different app for each group of students. Classroom helps teachers focus on teaching so students can focus on learning.
