  • Apple announces creative education event on March 27

Apple began sending out invitations today for an event that the company will be holding on March 27 in Chicago. There could also be new educational features that are going to arrive with iOS 11.3. Gossip says Apple might be about to reveal a new 9.7-inch iPad for a special education price of $259.

It's an unusual locale for Apple as the company typically hosts media events closer to home in California. Still, it's held five events in March, so we suspected an invite was coming for some sort of event in the spring. 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. 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.
