Apple’s free Beats headphones offer for back to school season expands to Europe
Apple has grabbed the headlines this week with far more important news than a $200 freebie offered to students in the market for an iPhone, iPad or Mac by fall, unveiling iOS 10, macOS Sierra, and watchOS 3 at WWDC 2016.
Still, given the Cupertino-based giant’s notorious stinginess, iFans in both North America and Europe probably can’t help but welcome any gift or small discount they’re granted through official Apple Stores.
Just two weeks after kicking off their customary back to school deal stateside and up north, the iPhone 6s and iPad Pro makers have earlier today brought the same exact promo to the old continent.
On British shores, for instance, university students, students accepted into university, parents buying for students, as well as teachers and staff at all levels, can get a pair of Beats Powerbeats2 wireless headphones, normally worth £170, free of charge if they splash the cash on an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, iPad Pro 9.7 or 12.9 first.
Identical bundles are available in France, Germany, Italy or Netherlands, although the gift value differs from country to country. Meanwhile, eligible iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, Air or Mac Pro buyers (non-refurb units only) score Beats Solo2 wireless headphones, worth £270 in the UK.
