- Apple has launched it’s annual ‘back to school’ program for this year.
- The offer is now live on the online Apple Store for Indian users.
- Users will need to head to the UNiDAYS page to verify their institution.
As part of Apple’s ‘Back to School’ promotion, the company is offering students a free pair of AirPods if they purchase a new Mac or iPad. Students can also upgrade to AirPods Pro or AirPods with a wireless charging case. Students eligible for free AirPods will also receive a full free year of Apple TV+, a three-month trial of Apple Music followed by a monthly student subscription rate of $4.99.
The free AirPods offer is applicable on the purchase of the new M1 MacBook Air, the MacBook Pro (all models), the new M1 powered 24” iMac, the Mac Pro, and the Mac mini. In the iPad world, on the purchase of the iPad Pro or the iPad Air, students get AirPods for free.
In previous years, Apple has offered exciting incentives, including Beats headphones. But this year, the deal is for something that’s both fun and practical: AirPods. Specifically, you get a $159 credit when you buy eligible Mac computers or iPad tablets. That zeroes out the cost of the baseline AirPods, but you can also choose the AirPods with Wireless Charging Case (spend $40 out of pocket, or 80% off) or the AirPods Pro ($197 at Amazon) (spend $90, or 64% off).
How to take advantage of the AirPods deal?
The fine print on the offer says that the deal is “available to current and newly accepted college students and their parents, as well as faculty, staff, and homeschool teachers of all grade levels.” But, so far as we can tell, you only need to show your educational credentials if you go in person to make the purchase in a physical store.
So to get your free AirPods, go toand simply choose the MacBook ($639 at Amazon), MacBook Pro, iMac, or iPad you want to buy and go through the checkout process. When you see the AirPods, you can choose to get the baseline model at no additional cost or to upgrade it.
