Among Apple’s many back-to-school deals, there’s an incredible markdown on the iPad Air, which we’ve 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 with an instant $100 credit. It is important to note, however, that the credit amount will be deducted from the purchase price of the tablet and billed as a separate purchase, then emailed to you within 24 hours of the date of shipment or pickup. For even more savings, opt for AppleCare+ and keep your device running smoothly with 20% off, down from $79 to just $63 per year when you commit to a two-year plan.
Perfect for powering up late-night study sessions, iPad Air delivers fast performance thanks to the new M1 chip and all-day battery life. Offering a similar experience to the iPad Pro, the Air could be a particularly good option for students when combined with Apple’s detachable keyboard and Apple Pencil, both of which are also covered by AppleCare+.
To read and do research in your dormitory, 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. Although this is an older model MacBook Air, since replaced by a version that includes the M2 chip, this is a great opportunity to get a powerful laptop at a student-friendly price. When we put this laptop to the test we were impressed with its performance, quiet operating system, and generous 13-hour battery life, which any college student is sure to appreciate.
Prepare for success this school year with incredible discounts on Apple gadgets. Shop back-to-school deals on laptops, tablets and more before you head back to campus this fall.
