Apple has extended its Back to School sale in the United States. The promotion will now run until October 12 instead of the original September 29 expiration date.
Unfortunately for those that have their eye on a new iPad Air, Appl is excluding the new tablet from the promotion. [PDF] Customers who purchase one of the new $599 iPad Air models will not be eligible to get free AirPods.
Prior to today, both the iPad Pro and iPad Air were eligible for the AirPods promotion, which initially launched on June 15. The promotion offers a $159 credit toward the purchase of AirPods, AirPods Pro, or AirPods with Wireless Charging case for those who purchase a MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, iMac Pro, or iPad Pro.
The new iPad Air exemption may also apply in Europe, Asia, Mexico, and the Middle East. We’ll see.
All of this is academic at this point (See what I did there?), as the new iPad Air models are not yet available for purchase. The new models are expected to be available next month.
