As indicated by the Bloomberg reports Microsoft is anticipating contend with iPad cost by propelling a portion of the new Surface tablets by 2018 mid-year. The point is to take some show of Apple’s piece of the overall industry.
Microsoft is guaranteeing to dispatch at $400 that accompanies 10-inch shows with the adjusted edge cases, USB-C ports, nine hours battery life, and 20% lighter bodies than the more established models like Surface Pro and I Pads.
On March, Apple then again, propelled another variant of the $329 iPad with the speedier processor and Pencil stylus bolster. Also, $329 iPad has helped up iPad deals that has altogether expanded ever it got discharged a year ago. Macintosh has conceded that 9.7 inch tablet is their well known iPad.
Microsoft will be giving a tough competition to the Apple and the new Surfaces will have the new keyboard cover which Apple lacks. Apple doesn’t sell its own keyboard cover for the entry-level iPad as well as lacks in Smart Connector.
Instead it relies on the third-parties like Logitech with the Bluetooth keyboard cases that cost around $100. Apple Pencil costs $99 and Logitech is going to release at the end of this year, Crayon stylus to education markets that costs around $49.
There is also something which Microsoft should bother about is there tablets aren’t getting acknowledged from the reviewers and there is also possibility of platform war. The new Surface devices will run on Windows 10 Pro that lacks in touch-friendly apps which iOS devices ‘App Store’ provides to their customers.
Google along with the third-party hardware brands seems to be joining the queue, this year by shifting its focus from Android to Chrome OS for the tablets. And there is a bundle of interesting options from HP and Acer.
On 4th June, Apple will host its WWDC keynote that will reveal their next major OS updates- iOS 12, Mac OS 10.14, Watch OS 5, and tv OS 12. Still there will lot more updates coming on the way of both phones and tablets, iPad specific features which includes UI screen updates that has reportedly pushed back to iOS 13.

Community Reporter @Adam Fowler did a fantastic job covering the Tech Summit in Sydney on Twitter! Now a week out I wanted to gather Adam’s thoughts on the event. Here is his interview:
Of the sessions you attended, which were your favourites?
I think the Office 365 sessions were my favorites, as they were focused at the IT Administrator looking after the environment. Learning about some of the logic behind Office 365 Groups I can take straight back to my place of business and implement. It’s always good to take away information you can immediately use.
Who do you think was the best speaker of the event?
I don’t like to pick favourites 🙂 It was great to see a lot of Product Managers from Redmond presenting, something we often don’t get in Australia. I did get to say ‘hi’ to @Michael Niehaus and saw a lot of other very high up people, which I think goes to show that Microsoft puts a lot of weight behind these events to make them successful and to share the knowledge.
With a packed agenda, how did you determine which sessions to prioritize attending?
I used the Microsoft Tech Summit app which gives a list of all the sessions. I added anything that sounded interesting for the entire event (some timeslots had 5 sessions I was interested in!) and then when the time came up, I re-read the sessions and decided what the best fit was. I find I make better decisions at the time just before I need to go and want to commit to the most relevant or interesting to me.
Outside of sessions, what other things did you do at the event?
I hung out at Microsoft‘s Tech Community Booth and answered a few questions from passers by which was fun, as I hadn’t done it in the context of being a Microsoft MVP before. I also went around to the vendor booths which is worthwhile finding out about other solutions out there as well as talking to existing vendors and getting an update on the latest information (and yes, getting swag is nice too!).
What advice would you give someone who is attending the Tech Summit for the first time?
Go to lots of sessions, but also don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation with anyone you come across. From my experience, the people that attend these events are very friendly and happy to have a chat. If you can’t find anyone that way, talk to people at booths or speakers after an event. Find what you’re passionate about and go for that. If you’re the social media type, that can be a good way to make new contacts too – there were a bunch of people I got to meet for the first time that I’d been tweeting to for months or years!
We also had @Dux Raymond Sy on site interviewing a few Microsoft staff at the event, check out his video interviews here
