Apple's back-to-school deals are here, and everyone gets free Beats

If the Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones aren't your first choice, the offer extends to a free pair of $US200 Powerbeats 2 Wireless earphones and $US150 BeatsX earphones with the purchase of a new eligible Mac computer or iPad. Do you plan on purchasing a new iPad Pro? That means Beats X buds will be free, but you'll need to pony up an extra $50 to get a pair of Powerbeats3 earphones or $150 for a pair of Solo3 cans. MacBooks and MacBook Pros now go from $1,249 ($50 off their normal price) while iPad Pros start from $629 ($20 off), but given that a pair of Beats on-ear headphones is typically around $200, this deal still ends up saving students money.

Starting now until September 25, Apple is offering special savings and a free pair of Beats headphones to qualifying purchasers picking up a new Apple device for school use. If you're not into those, you can instead get a set of Powerbeats3 or Solo3 for $149.95 off.

Higher Education Parents - Parents purchasing on behalf of their child, who is a student now attending or accepted into a public or private Higher Education Institution in the Qualified Country, are eligible to purchase. The back-to-school deals are already slowly rolling out, and Apple's not being stingy this summer. Check out Apple's full terms and conditions for more info about the promotion.
