Apple's March 27 event in Chicago takes place at school

The event invite asks members of the press to "Join us to hear creative new ideas for teachers and students" at a venue in Chicago.

Apple has found themselves in a bit of hot water recently due to the admittance that they were, indeed, slowing down older phones. There could also be new educational features that are going to arrive with iOS 11.3.

It's an unusual locale for Apple as the company typically hosts media events closer to home in California.

Apple is planning what appears to be an education-focused event in Chicago later this month.

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

The same goes for Thomas, Alix and the No. 3 seed Seminoles, who would cross paths with Wilson's Gamecocks in the Sweet 16. UConn, which has been a No. 1 seed every year since 2007, opens up against 16-seed Saint Francis, Pa. on Saturday morning.

Apple snuck in a little Friday surprise with an unexpected invite to a March 27 event.

However, Apple also has an interest in promoting the education of women - in some cases, specifically in programming.

We'll find out sooner than later, as we're less than two weeks away from Apple's "field trip". New iPads have been rumored for later this year as well, but it's unlikely that an education-focused iPad would include the new and expensive FaceID camera.

The stylish pen-and-ink drawing has caused many sites to speculate that the announcements may relate to the Apple Pencil, with some rumors suggesting the company might introduce a lower-priced 9.7-inch iPad.

As far as what else we know about the Apple education event at this point, it's likely that it has to do with increased support of Apple products for educational purposes.
