Apple has announced that it scheduled ‘creative education’ event on March 27 in Chicago and it already started sending out media invites for the same. The keynote will commence at 10:00 a.m. Central Time. The company will focus on education-related announcements for teachers and students including a new version of Apple pen.
The teaser image that Apple has posted indicates that it will be introducing a new version of Apple pen along with low-cost iPad that is said to be priced around $260 just as it was rumored back in December. The updated iPad will sport a 9.7-inches size. Along with iPad, Apple might also introduce the much talked low-cost MacBook Air. However, according to DigiTimes reports, Apple is said to announce the MacBook model at WWDC which is set for June 4th.
But with Apple holding a special educated-based event later this month, it makes sense for it to bring the new low-cost MacBook now than later. The entry-level MacBook Air is expected to be priced between $799-$899 price range. Other announcements include AirPower charging mat which is a wireless charging pad that can charge multiple Apple devices at once, including the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, and Apple Watch Series 3.
In terms of software, Apple is also expected to formally introduce the iOS 11.3 which is currently under testing in beta. If rumors and reports are to be believed, we might also see the most-hyped iPhone SE2. However, we’re not even sure if the SE 2 even exists.
Either way, we will see what Apple has in store for us on March 27th. Apple recently announced that its Everyone Can Code program will be expanded in Chicago’s public schools and city colleges this spring and this is the reason for Apple to host an event in Chicago.
