Video: Apple employees were calling 911 after walking into glass walls
Once a pariah in the enterprise, Apple has quietly emerged as a darling of executives and professionals because of the ease of use of the iPhone and the iPad. We look at how the influx of Apple devices is changing the tech landscape in business.
Apple is planning to hold a product event on March 27 focused on the education sector.
In a media invite, Apple says it will debut "creative new ideas for teachers and students" at a high school in Chicago.
Little else is known at this point, but it's safe to assume that this is a strategic effort by Apple to get more of its devices inside of the classroom. The Cupertino tech giant has had mild success in the education space, but Google is gaining the most ground by far, with its lower-cost Chromebooks and Google Classroom platform.
That said, Apple is rumored to be building a lower-priced MacBook Air and 9.7-inch iPad models that could rival Google's education offerings.
