Everything Apple Announced at Chicago education event

Apple held its first event of 2018 on Tuesday in Chicago, Illinois, at the Lane Tech College Prep High School. The event’s unusual location was due to the fact that it focused on education, marking Apple’s first education-oriented event since 2012.

The main draw of the event was a new low-cost iPad with Apple Pencil support, but Apple also announced several other education-focused initiatives for teachers and students.

Apple didn’t live stream the event, but after it was finished, the company shared a full video, so if you want to watch it from start to finish, you can do so on Apple’s Events website or through the Events app on the Apple TV.

There were also a few other unannounced surprises that popped up on Apple’s site after the event, like new iPhone and iPad cases, new Apple Watch bands, and a Space Gray Magic Keyboard, Trackpad, and Mouse, which were previously exclusive to the iMac Pro.
