Posted October 31, 2018 07:00:00Apple has been on a tear lately with the release of the new Apple Watch and an all-new Macbook Pro, but it’s hard to argue with the fact that it still doesn’t have enough apps to make an iPad worthy of being the best tablet in the world.
But now the company has announced that it’s now accepting apps from Chinese manufacturers in order to bring back the iPad to the world, as part of its “Nixa Hardware” program.
The program will see Apple making a range of iPad and MacBook models available to buy online for less than the retail price of their regular counterparts.
The Nixa Store is set to open tomorrow, with the first batch of iPad models set to be available on October 28.
AppleInsider’s Mike Ybarra reports that the program will include “nixa apps for the iPad Pro, MacBook Pro and Apple TV” as well as the “new iPad Mini, iPad Pro with Retina Display, iPad Air, and iPad Mini with Retinoic Touch.”
The NIXA Store will be open until October 30, and the Mac app store will close the following day.
The news comes after Apple announced that the iPad Air 2 would be coming to the US in October and that the MacBook Pro will also be coming soon.
