Apple today launched its annual Back to School promotion in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and several other countries.


For a limited time, qualifying higher-education students, parents purchasing on behalf of higher-education students, and faculty and staff at both higher-education and K-12 institutions can receive a free or discounted pair of Beats headphones with the purchase of an eligible Mac or iPad Pro.

Apple is offering the choice of free BeatsX, Solo3 Wireless, or Powerbeats3 Wireless headphones with the purchase of any new MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, iMac Pro, or Mac Pro. As usual, the Mac mini is excluded.

Apple is also offering free BeatsX or Powerbeats3 Wireless with the purchase of any new 10.5-inch or 12.9-inch iPad Pro, with the option to pay $100 extra for Solo3 Wireless headphones. Like last year, Apple’s sixth-generation iPad and iPad mini 4 models do not qualify for the offer.

The promotion is available through Apple’s online store, retail stores, and authorized campus stores, or by calling 1-800-MY-APPLE. We’ll update this article when full terms and conditions are available.

In select countries, student verification via UNiDAYS is required.
