Phil Schiller took the stage at Apple’s education event in New York City to announce the company’s plans for reinventing textbooks. Schiller said that textbooks are currently “not durable” “not interactive” and “not searchable.”
Apple will change all that with its new software for iPad: iBooks 2.
Apple’s education event in New York City this morning may see the launch of a new version of the company’s Pages word processor which will feature support for iBooks publishing, and an iBooks application that will allow us to read our favorite titles on our Macs. Furthermore, we could also see the launch of textbook rentals.
