UK launch of Apple’s Back to School deal expected very soon

Earlier this month Apple has launched its high anticipated Back to School deal in the United States and Canada and it is set to launch in the UK any day.  In the US, when qualifying students and parents of students buy an eligible Mac they are offered either a pair of beats headphones absolutely free! Surely the same deals will reach the UK.

If you are a student haven’t heard about the deals, you are seriously missing out. We are all waiting to see if the same deals will reach the UK.

What’s on offer?

In the US, Students can choose from Beats Solo3, BeatsX or Powerbeats3 headphones when purchasing any Macbook, Macbook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac or Mac Pro.  It is likely to be the same offer in the UK, if not very similar.  We only wish we were still students to take advantage of the offer!

Even iPads are getting a look in as Apple offers free BeatsX wireless headphones with any purchase of a 10.5-inch or 12.9-inch iPad Pro.  If you are willing to pay just $50 more you can get your hands on some Beats Powerbeats 3 or Solo3 wireless headphones for $150 more.

Where can you access the offer?

Apple offered the US the deal on their online store for education as well as at Apple retail stores and authorized campus stores.

The offer is waslimited to the US but is also available in Singapore and Mexico, although notably it was not available in Europe initially.  Apple has previously released offers in the US a few weeks before expanding them to Europe.

We are all eagerly awaiting the official announcement to see what great deals will be on offer.
