Apple Pencil has a tiny price reduction in Brazil and an educational discount will also be valid here; covers get new colors

At least some of the news announced by Apple in today's keynote are arriving with immediate effect in Brazil and they have everything to do with the Apple Pencil.

Contrary to speculation, we saw no change in Ma's stylus, which remains exactly the same as always with its perfectly cylindrical body and propensity for unwanted bearings. But the first good news that Apple Pencil is a little bit (emphasis on the diminutive) cheaper in Brazil for everyone: from R $ 750, the pet now costs R $ 730. Must-see, right?

Better yet to note that the educational discount announced by Ma in the USA, Pencil will cost US $ 90 for students and teachers, which represents US $ 10 less than its regular price will also be valid here. Accessing the Apple educational store, we found that the pen can now be purchased for R $ 650 in the special offer.

It is always worth remembering that Ma's educational discounts in Brazil are available to students, parents of students, teachers and employees of elementary, high school, technical or higher schools recognized by MEC; buyers must have a document that proves their link with the digitized institution to be provided to Apple if requested.
