Apple has started offering its back-to-school promotion for eligible students and staff in Australia. Like its recent education promos, this “Back to Uni” deal offers free or discounted AirPods when buying select Mac and iPad models along with 20% off AppleCare+.

Update: Apple’s promotion is showing up for more countries like Brazil, South Korea, and New Zealand.

Apple says the promo is running from 6 January 2022 to 7 March 2022. To qualify for the promotion you must be:
