By August 7, 2017No Comments

A generation ago, back-to-school supplies meant notebooks, pens, the right clothes and maybe a new backpack. Today, it’s all about tech, and if the student in your life doesn’t have the best, they may have to fight to keep up. What is the best back-to-school tech for 2017? Here are some of our selections for the best tech for back to school.

Bose QC35 Noise-Canceling Headphones

Not for use in class, of course, but for studying, these headphones are a dream. They feel great on your ears, and when you’re wearing them, it’s suddenly like you’re all alone in the world, so you can completely focus. This is some of the best tech for college students with noisy roommates. They can help you block out noise when you’re trying to catch up on some much-needed sleep over the weekend, too.

iPad Pro

Today, a tablet is standard back-to-school equipment, and for Apple fans, there are few better than the iPad Pro, either in 9.7-inch or 12.9-inch varieties. This may be the best back-to-school tech you buy all year, with massively powerful hardware for its size and a giant selection of apps, educational content, video content, games and more.

iPhone 7

While we’re at it, isn’t it about time you upgraded your iPhone to the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 plus? One of the best phones for back to school or for anyone who loves great smartphone technology, the iPhone 7 is leading the pack with unbelievable camera resolution, a sleek look and tremendous functionality all around, so you can keep up with your classmates and professors on the go.

Google Pixel

If you’re not into Apple products, you’ll be the talk of the school when you arrive with your amazing Android-based Google Pixel. The Google Pixel packs a tremendous amount of power into this little phone with a 5-inch screen in 32 GB and 128 GB varieties. Unlimited photo and video storage, high VR functionality, a fast-charging battery and all the functionality you would expect from the Google brand make this the perfect back-to-school accessory.
