In an invitation email sent out to the press on Friday, Apple announced to hold an event on March 27 focused on education in Chicago. It is expected that Apple is getting ready to release new hardware products.
The invitation reads, “Let’s take a field trip,” asking the press members, “Join us to hear creative new ideas from teachers and students” at a venue in Chicago. This hints that maybe Apple is suggesting a new release, a new Apple Pencil – and with it, a new iPad.
As the invitation mentions “from teachers and students,” this leads us to believe that there might also be some focus on education. Previously in 2012, Apple held an event in New York City to talk about education and launched its iBooks 2 platform. This might be a similar stunt as well.
The venue for this Apple education event is unusual as Apple mostly hosts in theatres and auditoriums, but this time the event is to take place at the Lane Tech College Prep High School.
