Apple to Offer 'Creative New Ideas' for Educators at Surprise Chicago Event

On Friday, Apple began sending out press invitations to an event in Chicago at the end of March.

The Classwork app and Classkit developer framework would also fit nicely into the setting at Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago.

Earlier this week, Apple announced that its annual worldwide developers conference event will take place June 4-8 in San Jose. In typical Apple fashion, the event's invitation doesn't offer any details about the impending announcements.

Three days of weather warnings issued for Sheffield — SNOW ALERT
Runners taking part in Reading's half marathon could have snow showers to deal with as they pound the streets around the town. Drivers have been warned by the RAC that they should ensure they are ready for potentially unsafe road conditions.

It's an unusual locale for Apple as the company typically hosts media events closer to home in California. Could these be new, affordably priced iPads? However, this won't be an event we're all used to seeing the company hold. Whether Apple plans to take on that market with a new product, or just service it with iPads, is unclear.

The invitation looks as if it was drawn with an Apple Pencil on an iPad, so let's go with that: Apple may be planning to announce new iPad models and maybe an updated Apple Pencil.

Apple most recently launched an updated iPad Pro at WWDC past year. Some analysts believe an updated MacBook Air may also include a more affordable price-between $799 and $899-and Apple could spin it as a lower-cost, educational device for high school and college-aged students.
