Apple offers students free AirPods with iPad or Mac
Apple has extended this year’s free AirPods promotion to students in the UK following its recent introduction in the U.S.
Free AirPods for students buying Mac or iPad
The deal means students who buy a Mac or iPad with education pricing will get free AirPods along with a 20% discount on AppleCare+ and savings on accessories.
It runs between 9 July and 29 October and is available via Apple’s Education Store.
Apple’s education pricing is available all year round for newly accepted university students and their parents, as well as all school, college and university staff, but verification is required.
How to verify student or staff status
- To verify student or staff status on Apple.com you will be redirected to the UNiDAYS website.

There are other benefits available to students making a purchase this year, including discounted £4.99/m access and a free student trial of Apple Music and a free Apple TV+ offer.
