Apple Sends Out Invite for ‘Creative New Ideas for Teachers and Students’ Event on March 27

Apple has sent out an invite to the media for an event on March 27.

The event is being held at Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago. The image accompanying the invite carries the tagline “Let’s take a field trip” with Apple inviting everyone to “hear creative new ideas for teachers and students.”

Given the venue and the tagline accompanying the invite, the event seems to be focused towards the educational market. And the iPad sits right in the center of Apple’s educational push.

The company has been pushing the tablet as a PC replacement for kids and college going students. Thus, it’s possible that we will see Apple unveil new iPads at the event. A possible refresh of the inexpensive 9.7-inch iPad should be on the cards along with an update to the iPad Pro lineup geared towards creative students. We can also possibly see an update for the Apple Pencil 2 being announced at the event.

One thing is for clear though: the chances of Apple unveiling the iPhone SE 2 at the event are pretty much nil given that the event is an educational one.
