Apple's Field Trip event is on! Are new iPads or MacBooks coming?


The world seems to love a big Apple event, so mark your cards for March 27, which is when the next one is happening.

Numerous tech blogs, including TechCrunch and Tom's Guide, see the event as a possible launching point for something iPad related, given that device's popularity among educators.




The last time Apple had an education-themed event was in January 2012, cnet.com reports. An invitation sent out by the company Friday morning plays coy, saying only, "Let's take a field trip". 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.

In typical Apple fashion, the company didn't reveal anything about the news it intends to announce at the event, instead simply stating that it was about "creative new ideas for teachers and students". In 2016, Apple debuted the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and the iPhone SE on March 21st at a similar event. 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.
