Apple also has a limit on how much students and educators can buy in a year.
Once you've hit continue, Apple should surface the AirPods deal. It'll say, "We’re throwing in AirPods with your new [device]," and then you can add the item to your bag. Apple is also giving you the option to upgrade to the AirPods with the wireless charging case for an extra $40 or the AirPods Pro for $90 out of pocket.
Only the second-generation standard AirPods are free with your purchase.
Once you've added the AirPods to your bag, you can review your bag and check out. You will see the option to add accessories at a discount and get an additional 20 per cent off AppleCare+ before you check out. These specials are part of Apple's promotion.

Apple’s back-to-school promotion for is an especially good one if you’re in need of some headphones. At Apple’s education store, students and educators can get a free set of second-generation AirPods when purchasing the $ MacBook Air or $ iPad Air (both prices listed reflect the educational discount). What’s also cool is that Apple is giving you the option to upgrade to the AirPods with the wireless charging case for an extra $40, or all the way up to AirPods Pro for $90 out of pocket.
The iPad Air and MacBook Air are the entry point for the deal, and of course, more expensive items are eligible to get you the free headphones, like the MacBook Pro of any size or either size of the iPad Pro. There are exclusions for this deal, namely the Mac Mini desktop and any iPad less than the cost of the iPad Air (including the mini and the baseline iPad). Strangely, the expensive Mac Pro desktop is excluded from the deal, too.
This is the best freebie that Apple has included in its back-to-school promotion in years, and it’s great that you don’t need to spend over $ to get in on it. If you want a capable laptop that’s ready to go with a keyboard, trackpad, and an OS that’s more capable than iPadOS, the barrier to entry is the $ MacBook Air, but that’s still not a bad deal at all.
Here are the eligible laptops and desktops:
- State capital quiz
- 24 hr walgreens
- Kitty coloring pages
- Apex legends crate tracker
- Car stereo install boise
Apple has once again launched its annual Back to School promotion a few weeks early this year, giving students and educators extra time to take advantage of the latest offer.
Although Apple’s Back to School promotions have long offered a free pair of Beats headphones with the purchase of a new Mac or iPad, the company changed things up a bit last year by including AirPods in the offer for the first time.
It now looks like this was the beginning of a new trend, with basically the same deal this year. Educational customers picking up select Mac or iPad models can get a free set of standard AirPods, but this year Apple is also offering a 20% discount on AppleCare+ purchased for any of these educational products.
Just like last year, this deal only includes the standard $ AirPods, however educational customers can upgrade to the AirPods with Wireless Charging case or the AirPods Pro by paying the $40 or $90 difference, respectively. Sadly, the AirPods Max are not eligible for this offer, however.
Apple’s Prior Back to School Promotions
From to , Apple’s back-to-school promotions only bundled Beats headphones, after switching away from offering Apple Store gift cards in the years before that.
However, the promotions always tended to be a bit more complicated, even in the days of Apple Store gift cards, since Apple offered different values depending on the device being purchased.
For instance, users purchasing an eligible Mac could choose any pair of Beats headphones up to the $ Beats Studio 3, while iPad customers were only eligible for the BeatsX or Beats Solo 3 Wireless at values of up to $, and could only get the Beats Studio 3 if they wanted to pay the $ difference.
Apple took a similar tack with its Gift Cards, offering a $ Apple Store Gift card for Mac buyers versus a $50 gift card when purchasing an iPad. Back then, however, Apple also offered the same $50 gift card with the purchase of an iPhone, but this hasn’t been included in the Back to School Promotions since
This year Apple is keeping things much simpler, although it’s also not offering as much value as it has in the past. Rather than offering different promotion levels for different Macs and iPads, Apple has decided that all educational customers will get the same $ AirPods offer regardless of what they buy. Plus, pretty much every Mac and iPad currently sold by Apple is eligible, from the $ Mac mini all the way up to the $6, Mac Pro. Here’s the full list:
- iMac (inch M1 or inch Intel)
- MacBook Pro (inch M1, inch Intel, and inch Intel)
- MacBook Air (M1)
- Mac mini (M1 and Intel)
- iPad Pro ( M1)
- iPad Air (4th-generation).
Configure-to-order versions of any Mac are also eligible for the Back to School offer.
Notably, however, the 8th-generation iPad and the 5th-gen iPad mini are excluded from this offer. This doesn’t seem unreasonable, considering that both of these devices don’t sell for much more than the AirPods themselves, especially at educational prices of $ and $, respectively. By comparison, the iPad Air 4 represents the most inexpensive qualifying device on the list, and it starts at $
As in prior years, the Back to School promotion is available to employees of K educational institutions, including school board members, PTA and PTO executives, and homeschool teachers, as well as faculty, staff, students, and parents of higher education institutions.
The promotion begins today, June 17, and runs until September
What Does This Mean for New Macs?
The fact that Apple has included all Macs — both Intel and M1 — without any specific exceptions could indicate that the rumoured “M1X” MacBook Pro models may not be on the table until after September
However, we also wouldn’t read too much into that. After all, Apple only just started shipping the inch M1 iMac in May, and it’s still included in the offer — even though many users are still waiting for theirs to arrive after shipping times started quickly slipping into July.
Further, there’s a good chance that Apple planned to announce a new MacBook Pro earlier this month, and was only forced to call it off due to supply chain problems. Had it been announced, however, it almost certainly would have been included in the Back to School promotion, so the fact that it may come out more quietly later in the summer doesn’t necessarily exclude it.
So, it’s fair to say that the new MacBook Pro will arrive when it’s ready. Apple isn’t likely going to delay it artificially just because there’s an educational promotion going on now, but at the same time, this also means that if you’re a student or educator hoping for a more powerful MacBook Pro, it may be worth holding off a bit before jumping on this promotion right away, just in case something new does show up before September

She looked me in the eye and nodded her head several times in agreement. - Spread your legs then. I entered it easily, as if I had done it many times before. And inside her it was very humid, hot and unusually narrow. I went in almost the entire length of the penis and froze, catching the sensation of a new hole for me.Apple LAUNCHES Back to School Promotion 2021! Get FREE AirPods (NOT CLICKBAIT) 😲
The trough, which until now had been so compressed for a fee, suddenly parted, revealing scarlet flesh to my gaze, I shuddered from surprise. My hands slid from her knees to her pubis, which stuck up, soft, smooth skin, she glowed in this semi-dark room.
Running my fingers over the clearing that I cut, I gasped, how delicate it is, real pink velvet.
