A few weeks ago we reported that rumors were circulating that a new affordable MacBook Air model was incoming. And now it seems that those rumors are likely not rumors, but actual leaks.
According to MacRumors, today Apple sent out invites to media for an event happening on Tuesday, March 27th at Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago, at 10AM central.

The event will be focused on creative new ideas for teachers and students, which highly suggests that this is going to be an education focused event.
Which brings us to more rumors. There’s speculation that the following devices will be announced at the event: a 9.7-inch iPad for $259, a MacBook Air priced from $799 to $899, the AirPower charging mat which will charge multiple apple devices at once, a new Apple Pencil, and possibly a second gen iPhone SE.
One thing is for sure, the Apple drawn on the invite is certainly very pencil-like. This also wouldn’t be the first time Apple has held an education focused event. Back in 2012, they held an education focused event in New York City where they announced iBooks 2, iBooks Author and iTunes U for iPad.
