Apple announces creative education event on March 27

Last year, for instance, it released Product RED versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, along with new Apple Watch bands and a $329 iPad.

Today, March 16, Apple sent journalists an invite to an event March 27, likely to show off some new products.

The event is to take place at the Lane Tech College Prep High School, an unusual change of pace from the Apple-owned venues and theaters the company usually hosts events in. While this Apple education event is probably not a direct response to their PR issues, Apple taking steps to listen to their community and take into account what they want and need is a good first step towards righting wrongs.

We'll know more on March 27th, and if Apple's leak machine is up to the task we'll get a few hints before then, too.

IEA: Global oil demand picks up but still lags rising supply
Today's early move suggests a more balanced market than previously thought, given the price action earlier in the week. The EIA should show a draw of 100bcf from storage today but after that we should start to focus on USA production.

This education event will be the next Apple event ahead of the Worlwide Developer Conference in San Jose from June 4-8 at the McEnery Convention Center. In 2012, Apple held an event in New York City to talk about education, where it unveiled its iBooks 2 platform, its tool for making and publishing books online, but even that event was all about the iPad.

Apple most recently launched an updated iPad Pro at WWDC past year.

Perhaps that'll mean some new low-end MacBook laptops (rumors still circulate that it plans to revamp the MacBook Air), or new iPads, which Apple seems convinced that students can use instead of laptops.
