Apple Education Event Planned For March 27

Apple Education Event Planned For March 27

The company said in an invitation Friday that it will share "creative new ideas for teachers and students" at the affair, which will take place at Lane Tech College Prep High School.

Today, March 16, Apple sent journalists an invite to an event March 27, likely to show off some new products. There could also be new educational features that are going to arrive with iOS 11.3.

We'll know more on March 27th, and if Apple's leak machine is up to the task we'll get a few hints before then, too.

Apple is holding an event on March 27, possibly to release new hardware products.




As for what Apple plans to discuss, that's anyone's guess. New iPads have been rumored for later this year as well, but it's unlikely that an education-focused iPad would include the new and expensive FaceID camera. The field of computer science and programming continues to be extremely male-dominated, and by pouring money into initiatives focused on women, Apple may start to make a dent in that disparity by chipping away at it a little at a time.

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".

On average, Apple holds two to three events per year, although it only held one major event last year in September. The Apple iPad devices also feature Swift Playgrounds, which acts as a code education platform.
