Why Mac?

Mac doesn’t just support learning, it enhances it. Students love the experience of working on Mac because it’s just built to be better in so many ways.

iPhone, meet Mac.

Mac and iPhone are designed to work beautifully together. All your photos, documents and music seamlessly sync across your devices with iCloud. You can make phone calls, as well as send or receive iMessage and SMS text messages, directly on your Mac. And if you start work on your iPhone, you can pick it up on your Mac seamlessly.

Built to be better.

Mac notebooks are incredibly thin and light, making them perfect for the lecture hall, and everywhere else on campus. And with a Mac, everything just works, because the hardware and software are made specifically for each other from the start.

Complete

Each Mac comes with the software you need to do the things you want, straight out of the box. Organise your studies with Calendar, Notes and Reminders. Produce incredible work with Keynote, Pages, Numbers, iMovie and GarageBand. Stay connected with Mail, Messages and FaceTime. Or access the Mac App Store via iTunes to discover the latest films, games and more.

Compatible

Mac is also compatible with the software you use every day. Microsoft Office runs brilliantly on a Mac, allowing you to achieve everything you need to do, on the computer you want to work with. Or simply use Keynote, Pages and Numbers to open and edit your Microsoft Office files instead.

Privacy, security and the environment

Mac is designed from the ground up to keep your information safe and protect your privacy. That’s because we build data security into every Mac as our first thought, not an afterthought. And each Mac is also designed with the environment in mind, with PVC- and BFR-free construction and highly recyclable aluminium. You can even trade in your eligible Mac for Apple Store credit or let us recycle it responsibly at no cost.

Why iPad?

iPad constantly opens up new opportunities for learning. It’s a powerful tool that students love to use. Thin, light and durable, iPad turns study sessions into whatever you want them to be, so lectures come to life like never before.

Hardware designed to take learning further.

The advanced features on iPad, like the Retina display, support for Apple Pencil, powerful chips and cameras, make your projects and presentations look incredible. It’s so lightweight you can take your studies anywhere. And with 10 hours of battery life, you can take notes in all your lectures and still have power for evening study sessions or downtime.

iOS 12 takes iPad, and your studies, to a higher level.

Everything you do, inside lectures and out, gets quicker and easier with iPad and iOS 12. Its capabilities help you work, play and learn like never before. The Files app puts all your favourite files in one, easily accessible place. Even those you store with cloud services like Google Drive, OneDrive and Box. The Dock lets you access your favourite files for fast multitasking and navigate easily through apps. Slide Over, Split View and the redesigned App Switcher make multitasking even more intuitive. And drag and drop now comes to iPad, allowing you to move text, photos and files from one app to another.

Apps for education.

There are 180,000 apps designed specifically for education. That’s a lot worth learning. And iPad lets you do so in all sorts of ways. You can use apps you’re familiar with, like Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Google Docs and Dropbox. You can connect iPad to a microscope to capture video and time-lapse images of cell division. And with augmented reality, you no longer even need to be in lectures to discover amazing educational experiences.

Apple Pencil

Writing up your study notes. Marking up your work. Sketching out your ideas. iPad has always been a great way to get what’s in your head down on the page. And now you have another way to do it. With Apple Pencil, you’ll experience pixel-perfect precision and responsiveness. It works as naturally as a regular pencil, but does so much more.

Keyboard support

Getting the most out of your studies happens easily on iPad. You can get your ideas down quickly with the Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro or by pairing iPad with a Bluetooth keyboard. And keyboard shortcuts make it even simpler to interact with your apps.
