The holidays haven’t even really started yet, but Apple is already ready for the new school year: Apple Back to School has just started. This means that – just like last year – you will receive AirPods as a gift with the purchase of a Mac or iPad.
Apple Back to School 2021: Free AirPods
The promotion is intended for (prospective) students at a university or college, parents who buy Apple products for their student child and teachers, and other employees of educational institutions. This group already receives an education discount all year round, but in the summer Apple will take it up a notch with the Back to School promotion.
Say for yourself: such a set of AirPods is a nice bonus. By default, you get the regular AirPods as a gift. But you can also opt for a discount on a slightly more luxurious AirPods variant. This is your advantage:
- AirPods with charging case: €0.00 (normal €179)
- AirPods with wireless charging case: €50.01 (normal €229)
- AirPods Pro: €100.01 (normal €279)
With which products?
You get the AirPods as a gift (or with a big discount) when you buy an iPad or Mac. Incidentally, not all iPads and Macs participate, Apple has selected a few. These are this year’s participating products.
Here are the education discount iPad models where you get free AirPods or AirPods at a discount:
- iPad Pro 2021
- iPad Air 2020
And these are the participating Mac models:
- MacBook Air
- 13-inch MacBook Pro
- 16-inch MacBook Pro
- iMac Pro
- mac mini
Would you like to think about it some more? No problem. The Apple student discount runs until October or while supplies last.
