Apple, which rarely has deals, is offering limited-time back-to-school discounts through its education store for both current and newly accepted college students as well as their parents and school faculty members. The offer includes discounts on Mac computers and iPad tablets, along with as much as 20% off AppleCare+ and free Apple gift cards up to $150 with select purchases.

Among the many Apple back-to-school deals is an incredible markdown on the iPad Air, which we named the best tablet you can buy. Down from the regular price of $549, you can take home the 64-gigabyte version for just $449 thanks to an instant $100 credit. It’s important to note, however, that the credit amount will be deducted from the purchase price of the tablet and charged as a separate purchase, then sent to you via email within 24 hours of the shipping or pickup date. For even more savings, opt for AppleCare+ and keep your device in good working order for 20% off—down from $79 to just $63 per year when you commit to a two-year plan.
Perfect for powering through late-night study sessions, the iPad Air offers snappy performance thanks to the new M1 chip and all-day battery life. Offering a similar experience to the iPad Pro, the Air could be an especially great option for students when combined with Apple’s detachable keyboard and the Apple Pencil, both of which are also covered with AppleCare+.
For reading and researching in your dorm, the MacBook Air M1 is a solid option. You can take home the laptop and a $150 Apple gift card for just $899 today, a savings of $150. While it’s an older model MacBook Air—since replaced with a version that includes the M2 chip—this is a great opportunity to get a powerhouse laptop for a student-friendly price. When we put this laptop to the test we were impressed with its performance, silent operating system and generous 13-hour battery life—something any college student is sure to appreciate.
Prep for success this school year with incredible markdowns on Apple gadgets. Shop back-to-school deals on laptops, tablets and more before you head back to campus this fall.
