Apple took to the stage in Brooklyn on Tuesday to unveil a host of new devices, including the latest iPad Pros. Students can already save $50 off at the Apple Store, bringing prices down to $749 for the 11-inch model and $949 on the larger 12.9-inch. This is the first discount that we’ve seen and likely the only price drop we’ll get until Black Friday. You can count on Thanksgiving week gift card offers and maybe $100 off.
