Apple Back-to-School Deals Include Free Beats Gear

If you need a new Mac computer or iPad for school this fall, now is a good time to buy.

Apple just announced its 2017 back-to-school promotion, which runs now through September 25 in the US. Apple is offering free Beats Solo3 wireless on-ear headphones, which normally cost $299.95, when you buy an eligible Mac. Qualifying machines include the iMac, Mac Pro, MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air, including configure-to-order versions.

If you don't want the Solo3, you can get a free pair of Powerbeats3 wireless earphones (normally $199.95) or Solo3 headphones (normally $149.95) instead.

Meanwhile, those in the market for a new iPad Pro can get a pair of BeatsX earphones, normally priced at $149.95, for free. If you're not into those, you can instead get a set of Powerbeats3 or Solo3 for $149.95 off. So, you'll end up paying $50 for the Powerbeats 3 or $150 for the Solo3.

iOS 12.1 beta hints at new iPad Pro

iOS 12 is still brand new, but Apple is already testing iOS 12.1 with a developer beta version. Steve Troughton-Smith and Guilherme Rambo found references to a brand new iPad that would support Face ID. First, there are changes to Face ID. You can find references to landscape orientation in the iOS 12.1 beta. Face ID on the iPhone is limited to portrait orientation. Chances are you didn’t even notice this limitation because there’s only one orientation for the lock screen and home screen. But the iPad is a different story as people tend to use it in landscape. And even when you hold it in landscape, some people will have the home button on the left while others will have the home button on the right. In other words, in order to bring Face ID to the iPad, it needs to support multiple orientations. This beta indicates that iOS 12.1 could be the version of iOS that ships with the next iPad. If that wasn’t enough, there’s a new device codename in the setup reference files. This device is called iPad2018Fall, which clearly means that a new iPad is right around the corner. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously indicated that the iPad Pro could switch from Lightning to USB-C. This would open up a ton of possibilities when it comes to accessories. For instance, you could plug an external monitor without any dongle and send a video feed to this external monitor. As for iPhone users, in addition to bug fixes, iOS 12.1 brings back Group FaceTime, a feature that was removed at the last minute before the release of iOS 12. If it’s still too buggy, Apple could still choose to remove the feature once again. Memojis could support iCloud syncing across your devices, which would be useful for an iPad Pro with Face ID.
