Apple sends invites to March 27 event, new iPads incoming?

Apple has begun sending invitations to members of the media to attend its upcoming March 27 event.

Apple is planning what appears to be an education-focused event in Chicago later this month. In the past, Apple's March events have resulted in some new devices, like the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro, but it's an event not known for revealing ground-breaking product news, especially when it's so close to Apple's big WWDC conference in June. The tagline for the event is "Let's take a field trip", and the invitation says the event will focus on "creative new ideas for teachers and students".

While this Apple education event is an exciting development in the world of technology, it's far from the first foray the company has made into the world of education.

However, Apple also has an interest in promoting the education of women - in some cases, specifically in programming. 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.




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".

Apple introduced Swift Playgrounds and its Everyone Can Code curriculum in 2016, both of which are free.

On average, Apple holds two to three events per year, although it only held one major event last year in September.
