PSA: Apple's March 27 Event Won't Be Live Streamed

While Apple often offers a live stream for its special events, the company has confirmed there will be no live stream for the March 27 education-focused event set to take place at Lane Tech High School in Chicago.

Apple today updated the Events app on the Apple TV to add an image of the invitation for the upcoming event and to note that a video will be uploaded later in the day following the conclusion of the event.

Apple has not held an education-focused event since 2012, so we weren't sure what to expect. That event was not streamed either. Given that this is primarily an event for teachers and students rather than regular customers, it isn't a surprise that we'll have no live stream.

MacRumors will offer live coverage of the educational event both here on MacRumors.com and on our MacRumorsLive Twitter account, so make sure to visit us on Tuesday if you want to hear about what Apple has in store for schools.

Significantly less hyped now. I doubt we'll see any product announced aside from the new iPad

Probably the lack of uplink bandwidth on the school's network. No straight to internet path, probably VPN's to the district so it's even more limited. Not worth bringing in dedicated lines just for this event.

So I guess no hardware products at all?
Announcing new stuff without stream seems unlikely.
