The invitation contains no details of either the content or format of the event.

On Friday, Apple began sending out press invitations to an event in Chicago at the end of March.

Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago will host the event at 10am CDT on March 27. 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.

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


The latest rumors indicate that Apple plans to incorporate some of the features of the iPhone X into the new iPad - namely, Face ID, no home button, and slimmer bezels. 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 event will have an education focus, but Apple may also be revealing new hardware, like a new iPad and Apple Pencil. Back in 2016, Apple released a new iPad Pro in the month of March that featured Apple Pencil support - a development that greatly increased the educational and creative potential of their popular tablet devices.

Apple most recently launched an updated iPad Pro at WWDC previous year.
