Apple Classroom

Earlier this week, Apple released the first version of its new Classroom iOS app for iPad, and today the company’s other educational app iTunes U has been updated with new features. iOS 9.3 includes initial support for the new Shared iPad feature for classrooms, which makes using iPads between classrooms versus one iPad per each student in school possible, and iTunes U is now optimized with support. Managed Apple IDs are also compatible now, and other iOS 9 features like Spotlight Search which let you find content in apps from the Home screen now have better support. Full release notes below:

What’s New in Version 3.2

• iTunes U now supports Managed Apple IDs and has been optimized for Shared iPad • Collections, courses and your content are now searchable from Spotlight Search • Ability to search assignments anywhere within iTunes U and via Spotlight Search • Improved experience in countries where restrictions are enabled by default • Improved offline syncing of grades and private discussions • Minor performance and stability improvements

iTunes U for iOS is available for free on the App Store.
