Here's How iOS 7 Promises to Make iPad Management Easier for Schools | Technologies in the Elementary Classroom | Scoop.it

"

Apple’s engineers are working hard towards meeting their Fall 2013 release date for iOS 7.

The full list of changes can be found here, but I discuss some of my favorites below and share why they are a good move for Apple to make…especially in light of the forthcoming Android Google Play for Education Store."
