Apple is getting a nice jump on the back to school shopping season with its just announced promotion. From now until Monday, Sept. 5, eligible buyers can snag a pair of free Beats headphones with the purchase of an iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
A wireless world
Buy an iMac, Mac mini, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or MacPro, and you’ll receive a free pair of Beats Solo2 Wireless Headphones.
They retail for $299.95, and you can select from a number of colors – black, blue, red, white, gold, rose gold, silver, space gray, blue active, red active, or yellow active.
Purchase any iPad model, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6, or iPhone SE and you’ll net a free pair of Beats Powerbeats2 Wireless Headphones, a $199.95 value. Colors available include red, black, black sport, white sport, red active, yellow active, or blue active.
Apple’s educational pricing is available to college students, students accepted to college, parents buying for college students, faculty, homeschool teachers, and staff at all grade levels.
The deal is available at your local Apple Store and Apple’s online store. Complete details can be found here.
Another hint about the ‘iPhone 7’
No wires needed.
And the two different headphones have something interesting in common – they are both wireless. That’s another strong clue that the next-generation iPhone models won’t sport the ubiquitous 3.5mm headphone jack.
If true, any “iPhone 7” buyer will need Bluetooth or Lightning headphones. The handset is expected to be introduced sometime this fall.
