The following Mac and iPad Pro models are eligible for a free pair of Beats:

  • MacBook
  • MacBook Pro
  • MacBook Air
  • iMac
  • Mac Pro
  • 10.5-inch iPad Pro
  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro

Those buying Macs will get a pair of Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones, Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones, or BeatsX Earphones, with promotion savings values of $329.95, $249.95 and $179.95, respectively. iPad Pro users can get these same headphones, with promotion savings values of only $179.95, so if you opt for PowerBeats3 or Beats Solo3, you’ll need to pay extra for them.

Last year’s back to school promo also offered free Beats headphones, but iPhone purchases were also eligible for the bonus, unlike this time around.

K-12 employees, faculty and staff of post secondary institutions and students (or parents buying on their behalf) are eligible for Apple education pricing.


  • Smart promo as it costs Apple very little and might even balance out by the addition of more advertising for Beats on everyone’s ears.

    A little sad as it proliferates mediocre sound quality, but at least people won’t be paying far too much for these ones; and considering so many people stick with Apple’s earbuds, it’s definitely a step up from that.

    Why wouldn’t they offer airpods as well? This is what my student wants!

  • Jackcmc

    Air Pods don’t actually fit everyone.

    The Beats Solo 3 Wireless with the W1 chip is quite an improvement in sound and connection quality compared to previous Beats wireless headphones. That’s the pair that I’ll opt for

    Man, bought my new MacBook Pro one week too early. Anyone have any success in getting Apple to honor the promotion for those that bought a week early?

  • OliChabot

    was my question. Did the sound quality of the Beats improved since Apple took the business ?

  • Peter

    Yes, I have. If you bought it after June 28, it all qualifies. Call Apple and they will gladly help you with it.

  • students are loves mac bcoz of weight good looks also.

    I think you have 30 days to return your MacBook Pro

    I bought my MBP on June 12th and they still honoured the deal when I walked in to a store on July 13th. I wasn’t expecting to be given the deal but thought I would try anyways. They immediately said yes, although I don’t imagine this is the norm given it was 30 days since purchase.
