Bear in mind that Apple is currently offering a free pair of Beats headphones to students when they buy an iPad Pro or iPad Air, however, which again could be the better deal. 6:08 It’s the big one. Apple The persistent rumors about two new iPads coming in the fall may help explain the frequent discounts being applied to virtually all of the models in Apple’s current lineup. At the moment, Amazon has most of the best deals, with the biggest discount on the 64GB 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which costs $799. That’s $200 of the list price.That noted, Apple is currently offering a deal of its own — to students, at least: Buy an iPad Pro or iPad Air and pick up a free pair of Beats headphones. The deal is available to current and newly accepted college students and their parents, as well as faculty, staff and homeschool teachers of all grade levels. 11-inch iPad Pro: $674 $249 at Amazon iPad Air: $469 Apple iPad discounts, compared • Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student.
