There’s great news for some consumers in the southern hemisphere today as they will be waking up to find the Apple Back to School deals have begun for Australia and also New Zealand. We have further details of what’s on offer ahead.
As you might expect Apple staggers the times of these promos to tally with different school calendars around the world. This promotion takes place annually and Apple has now launched this year’s Back to School promotion for Australia and New Zealand.
Education customers in those countries can now receive free gift cards with various purchases to use in Apple’s digital content stores. These cards can be used in the App Store, iTunes Store, iBookstore and Mac App Store.
