Apple to host education-themed event at Lane Tech

In an invitation email sent out to the press today, Apple announced it will be holding a media event on March 27. The company said in an invitation Friday that it will share "creative new ideas for teachers and students" at the affair, which will take place at Lane Tech College Prep High School. This year's event will have a strong focus on education, but as far as if or what new gadgets will be revealed - there's only speculation.

Though Apple does not go into detail about the event, it could be tied to a recently announced partnership with the Chicago Public Schools and the City Colleges of Chicago. 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.

The first product we're hoping to see is the AirPower charging mat. Whether Apple plans to take on that market with a new product, or just service it with iPads, is unclear.

Microsoft attempted to recover some of the market with an education-focused event previous year, and the launch of the Surface Laptop, but that still costs considerably more than most Chromebooks. Simply called iPad, it had a dumbed-down processor and camera than the previous iPad Air 2, but it had virtually the same 9.7-inch Retina display as the newer iPad Pro.
