Invitations for the event were sent out this morning with the tagline: "Let's take a field trip". In typical Apple fashion, the event's invitation doesn't offer any details about the impending announcements. Perhaps something akin to the event Microsoft held roughly this time past year, where it launched Windows 10 S and the new Surface Laptop? 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.
Rep. Louise Slaughter, progressive champion of women's rights, dies at 88
Jim McGovern will take over her committee post in an acting capacity and is the most likely candidate to permanently succeed her. She will also get to name a new member to Rules, perhaps a woman, since the other two Democrats on the panel - Reps.
This time, however, Apple will not be hosting the event in California, instead opting for Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago. The new Apple "Everybody Can Code" program recently expanded to 70 different colleges and universities in Europe. Back in 2016, Apple released a new iPad Pro in the month of March that featured Apple Pencil support - a development that greatly increased the educational and creative potential of their popular tablet devices. Previous year the company introduced the new 9.7-inch iPad on March 21.
It is definitely a possibility that we may see new iPads or laptops being unveiled at the event. Plenty of filings for an iPad have been seeing headlines lately, so it would make sense.
