Apple has launched its annual Back to University promotion for students, teachers, and other eligible educational employees in Australia and New Zealand.

The promotion, running from January 18 to March 13, offers a free pair of second-generation AirPods with the purchase of eligible new Mac or iPad models.

This is a great opportunity for students who are in need of a new device for their studies, as well as for teachers and educational employees who are looking to upgrade their technology. The promotion is available on Apple’s online store, in the Apple Store app, and at Apple’s retail stores in Australia, making it easy for customers to take advantage of the offer.

Eligible models for the promotion include the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, 24-inch iMac, iPad Pro, and iPad Air, including the newly released 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips.

These devices are all top-of-the-line in terms of performance and design, and they are sure to help students and educators stay productive and efficient in their work.

Customers also have the option to upgrade to third-generation AirPods for an additional cost or to second-generation AirPods Pro for a higher upgrade cost. The AirPods are a great addition to any of the eligible devices, as they offer a convenient and high-quality audio experience.

Refurbished Macs and iPads are not eligible for the free AirPods offer.

Apple’s Back to University promotion is a great opportunity for students, teachers and educators to upgrade their technology and stay connected and productive, and it’s also a great way for Apple to show their support for the education community.
