Apple Announces Education Event in Chicago

Apple Announces Education Event in Chicago

Apple just started sending out invitations for a media event on March 27th called "Let's take a field trip".

The event is being held at Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago starting at 10am CT.

It's unclear what products will be shown off at the event and the invite doesn't give us much to go on.

The bottom of the invitation also says "Join us to hear creative new ideas from teachers and students", leading us to believe there might also be some focus on education.

Apple is holding an event on March 27, possibly to release new hardware products. While this Apple education event is probably not a direct response to their PR issues, Apple taking steps to listen to their community and take into account what they want and need is a good first step towards righting wrongs. Apple has also supported education in other ways, such as an announcement in January of their plans to support Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai's work in women's advocacy. Apple's last education event took place all the way back in 2012 in New York City.

Business Insider speculated that Apple will announce a new Apple Pencil and a new iPad because the invitation's cover "is drawn in a calligraphic style". (Although, it didn't have the Pro's True Tone technology.) This year Apple could release an even cheaper iPad that costs under $300.
