Ohio State partners with Apple, new students to get iPads

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State University says all of its new undergraduate students will be getting an iPad beginning next fall.

The university says it's part of a new collaboration with Apple.

The tech giant and Ohio State will create an iOS design laboratory for the university and help students learn coding skills and mobile app development.

The school says Apple employees will work at the lab to help with the partnership.

Apple CEO Tim Cook tells The Columbus Dispatch that he loves the idea because state universities are important to serving the community as well as a large number of students.

He says Ohio State's leaders impressed him with their forward thinking and hopes many others will follow.
