Apple to host education-themed event at Lane Tech

Apple to host education-themed event at Lane Tech

However, this won't be an event we're all used to seeing the company hold.

On Friday, Apple began sending out press invitations to an event in Chicago at the end of March. There could also be new educational features that are going to arrive with iOS 11.3.

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

It looks like Apple will have a first-quarter announcement after all.

Apple is holding an event in Chicago on March 27. 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. Apple has also supported education in other ways, such as an announcement in January of their plans to support Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai's work in women's advocacy. The field of computer science and programming continues to be extremely male-dominated, and by pouring money into initiatives focused on women, Apple may start to make a dent in that disparity by chipping away at it a little at a time. A new iPad with Apple's high-end camera, which enables FaceID, Animoji, and ARKit features, may debut later this year.

Apple introduced Swift Playgrounds and its Everyone Can Code curriculum in 2016, both of which are free.
