Once the most popular kid in the classroom when it came to technology, Apple has seen how fickle tastes can be. The Google Chromebook, an inexpensive laptop which basically runs a sophisticated version of the company’s Chrome web browser, has taken a 51% share of the K-12 market in the latest survey run by Futuresource Consulting. What’s most stunning about that number is Google itself will tell you it was at 1-2% just 3 years ago. With the forthcoming iOS 9.3, Apple hopes to begin reversing the trend. Early indications are that while it has put together a smart offering, it might still be missing the most important piece to win back what it has lost.
