Apple has officially launched its "Back to Uni" promotion in Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, and South Korea.
The education promotion offers students and teachers a free pair of AirPods with the purchase of an eligible Mac or iPad. Customers can also grab 20% off of AppleCare+ for their new Mac, iPad, or AirPods.
The following Macs and iPads are eligible for the promotion:
- MacBook Air
- MacBook Pro
- Mac Pro
- Mac mini
- iPad Pro
- iPad Air
The following AirPods are eligible for the offer:
- AirPods (2nd generation)
- AirPods (3rd generation)
- AirPods Pro
According to the terms and conditions, the promotion will begin on January 6 and run until March 7:
While a free pair of the 2nd generation AirPods are included by default in the promotion, customers can also choose to upgrade to a pair of 3rd generation AirPods or AirPods Pro for a little more money. Customers will see the option to redeem the free or upgraded pair of AirPods when they add their eligible Mac or iPad to the cart.
The promotion is available to students, parents of students, teachers, and university staff.
Bottom line: With better battery life, a completely new design, new features like Spatial Audio, and an IPX4 rating, the AirPods 3 are better than ever before. Plus, they sound better than the previous models and other than ANC, have pretty much all the same features as the AirPods Pro. These are fantastic AirPods for anyone looking to upgrade or buy their first pair.
