Apple Chicago Event Apple Chicago Event

Apple on Friday sent out invites to the media for an education-themed event on March 27. The event will be held at the Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago, Illinois.

“Creative new ideas for teachers and students,” promises the event invite, suggesting Apple has some education-related announcements planned for later this month. Following the history of Apple events held in the month of March (and also according to the rumors), new hardware as well as software announcements are likely to see the light of the day; perhaps a lower-priced iPad or MacBook targeted at classrooms.

On the software speculation, Apple could reveal more about iOS 11.3 with the new ClassKit framework for educational apps. Alongside these hardware and software possibilities, the Apple logo in the invite perhaps hint toward some Apple Pencil refinements as well (the invite is gorgeous!).

This is not the first time Apple is hosting such education-themed event. The company hosted a similar event in New York in 2012, and it was full of software surprises for the iPad.

Don’t feel surprised if you see ARKit demos for educational apps. They are even more exciting!

Samsung Galaxy Event

Samsung is hosting a Galaxy event on October 11 next month. The company posted a brief note about the event on its press website, in a surprising move today. We’ll be seeing a new Galaxy device that will offer “more ways to express yourself than ever before,” says Samsung.

The event teaser reads “4x fun” in the heading, which we have no idea what it’s hinting toward but a Galaxy device. This indeed is a surprising news, provided it’s coming from a company who released its phablet flagship, Galaxy Note 9 last month. And also not long after Apple wrapped up its iPhone Xs event this week. Samsung’s Galaxy event poster doesn’t reveal anything about what we will be seeing next month — a phone, camera, or something new — but it will be four times the fun, according to the South Korean giant.

As there’s no mention of the event location, the Galaxy event could be an online announcement across Samsung’s website on October 11, 2018. Stay tuned for what happens next on this story.

At this year’s special event, Apple is set to debut three new iPhone models — iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone Xr — alongside Apple Watch Series 4, and perhaps hardware updates to the existing MacBook Air.

Microsoft Surface Event

Microsoft has announced its Surface event for October 2 in New York City. The press event will begin at 1pm Pacific Time, focusing on the company’s latest hardware and software releases.

Microsoft will likely showcase its updated Surface line of products during the event, though the invite doesn’t hint anything in particular. “A moment of your time,” reads the invite.

It’s been quite a long — two years in number — since we’ve had any major Surface Studio announcement coming to us, which also aids toward major spec bump for existing Surface hardwares. Not to mention, Microsoft can surprise us with new software releases, too.

Microsoft’s Surface event is being held a couple weeks after Apple’s iPhone event, and a week before Google’s Pixel event. All that leads to an exciting month ahead!
