Apple has taken down its online store ahead of its education-focused event in Chicago. The company is expected to unveil a new, cheaper iPad for students that’s compatible with the Apple Pencil and a lower price tag than $329.

Notably, that likely won’t be all Apple talks about at its event. Despite attaining a low-key nature and being held at a high school, the company’s also expected to talk about ClassKit, a new framework for classrooms to use in order to keep tabs on devices. We don’t know too much about the software, but we expect Apple to give it some detail later today.

As a side note, we may also see the releases of iOS 11.3, macOS 10.13.4, tvOS 11.3, and watchOS 4.3 sometime this afternoon as each update has been in beta for some time now. Of course, we’ll let you know if they start rolling out.

Be sure to stay tuned to Matridox as we’ll have all the latest from Apple’s education event right here on the site and on our Instagram page.
