Apple sends invites to March 27 event, new iPads incoming?
On March 27, Apple will be hosting an event in Chicago, as media invitations revealed earlier today. The gathering will take place at the Lane Tech College Prep High School and will be focused on education – "Join us to hear new creative ideas for teachers and students," the invite reads.
"Boo-riing!" you might be thinking to yourself, but don't dismiss the announcement so quickly. On one hand, the event probably won't bring anything groundbreaking (if anything at all) in terms of hardware – big news from Apple are much more likely to come out of its new, space-age campus. But on the other hand, we've been hearing rumors of new iPads being in the works, and an education-oriented event seems fit for their announcement. Could these be new, affordably priced iPads? And could they have Apple Pencil support, judging by the strokes seen in the invitation above?
We'll find out sooner than later, as we're less than two weeks away from Apple's "field trip". On a related note, Apple has another big event coming up soon, namely WWDC, scheduled to kick off on June 4th.
