I was planning to buy an iPad recently and the very obvious thing I did was to search for it on Flipkart and Amazon. It was only moments later that I realized that Apple already opened its online store in India in September and the Apple Online Store also lets you access Apple Education Store in India.
The good thing about the Apple Online Store is that it makes you eligible to get student discounts on all the Apple devices if you are a student (of course). So being a student I too wanted to grab that student discount on my iPad.
Why should I have all the fun, right? So, in this article, we am going to show you how to sign up and access Apple Education Store in India and get all the student discounts and benefits.
About Apple Online Store
Apple launched the online store in India on 23rd September 2020. The aim of the whole online store is to bring top-notch flagship products and experiences. With the Apple Online Store, customers can get a ton of benefits like support from Apple specialists, trade-ins for iPhone, the option to configure your MacBook, or iMac which were not present earlier.
With the online store, students can also get discounts under Apple’s Education program. Plus, it is an official Apple store, so you also get that safe feeling of getting original products delivered.
