I just paid the $120 for AppleCare+ got my SE² last night 🤷🏻‍♂️
Yes. The iPhones are also never part of the education promos.

Too bad you can't save 20% on the Apple Pencil without having to buy the iPad.

Need an Apple Pencil Gen 2

I can report that I just got off the phone with Apple and mentioned how I'd ordered an iPad Pro on June 5th (now shipped, to be delivered late this week) and confirm that they WILL be sending me a set of AirPods with charging case! She didn't offer me the Pros, however. So if you recently placed an order definitely call and ask. I will also be adding Apple Care at 20% off.

Between the quad-core Air and entry-level Pro, it comes down to your usage. If you do things that require sustained CPU usage at all, the Pro will serve you better as it has a cooling system that has more hope of keeping up with those workloads. Otherwise, the Air has twice the SSD storage at that price, and is marginally thinner/lighter.
Or you can remove the case cover on the MacBook Air and add a copper shim.

Apple purposely removed contact with the heat pipe on the AIr to persevere the 13” Pros.

There’s a whole thread on MacRumors with folks adding copper shims to dramatically improve the cooling performance on the i5/I7 MacBook Airs.

I don't feel too bad then as I still had a couple weeks left to decide on adding it.

The new iPads do look enticing though, gotta do some research on the Pro vs the Air for photography and social networking.

For Lightroom and Photoshop work (not a lot of layers) the Air is more than enough.
Video work won’t happen on the Air.

It's basically on the honour system. They do limit it to a certain number of devices per year.
Desktop: One (1) may be purchased per year
iPad: Two (2) may be purchased per year

Shame, already ordered iPad Air on May 22nd, delivered last week. Would have loved to get the AirPods too as I'm now shopping for a deal on them.

Does the Pencil work on the Air?

What happened to the Pro 3rd gen?
The various version get me really confused with their lineup.

I honestly rather add 3 more shares of Apple Stock to my portfolio then buy an iPad Pro, that price is ridiculous.

Currently for mobile work I have a SP6 and Tab A 10.1, the Surface is an incredible device but the Tab A is slower than a Galaxy S3 phone from a decade ago it makes no sense.

Knowing Apple's software and hardware optimization I doubt I'd need anything powerful to do the light editing and social media posting I'm trying to do, right now I'm using my SE² for that instead of my Note 10+ because iOS has the superior version of the apps I use.

What's the best way to get a Mac mini? Looks like that's excluded from this promotion.
