The new academic year is here, which means you may be on the lookout for some of the best technology to support you throughout your uni years and beyond… 

There’s no better time to invest in Apple tech than your student years, especially given the fact you can make *huge* savings as a TOTUM member with your Apple student discount.

That’s right - you can save on Mac and iPad for university, get 20% off AppleCare+ PLUS get a gift card up to £130 with your Apple student discount! 

But aside from the mega student discount on offer, why else should you take the leap and invest in Apple tech during uni?

1. Customisable Mac


Did you know you can customise any Apple Mac to meet your specific needs and preferences? Choose the memory, storage, graphics and colour that is best suited to your performance requirements and budget, and you can guarantee that your Mac will be equipped with everything you need.

If you’re a graphic design or videography student, for example, you may need a laptop with significantly more memory than a casual user who mostly uses their Mac to send emails, surf the web and listen to music. 

So having the ability to choose the right memory and storage to suit you is a major win!

2. Personalise your iPad, AirPods and Pencil 


Want to give your tech a personal touch? Your Apple iPad, AirPods and Pencil can be personalised with custom engraving, and best of all this comes at no extra cost! 

Whether you want to add your name to your belongings, a special date, or even your favourite emojis, Apple’s custom engraving options allow you to make your technology completely unique to you. 

3. Protect your Mac or iPad with 20% off AppleCare+ 


Whether you’re a little accident prone or just want extra peace of mind, AppleCare+ provides extended warranty coverage for your Apple devices - including coverage for accidental damage! This means protection against accidental drops, spills and other unforeseen mishaps. As a student, you can enjoy 20% off AppleCare+, meaning you can protect your devices for less. 

AppleCare+ also gives you 24/7 priority access to Apple experts by chat or phone, express replacement service in the event that your device requires repairs, software support and more. 

4. Get 3 FREE months of Apple Music and Apple TV+, then pay a student rate


Another great reason to invest in Apple tech as a student is that you’ll get to enjoy a whole three months of Apple Music and Apple TV+ for FREE when you purchase a new device. That means getting to binge watch shows and movies that are exclusive to Apple TV+ at no extra cost - from Ted Lasso to The Morning Show.

And with Apple Music, you can get those freshers’ pre-drinking playlists at the ready without having to splash out on a subscription… 

Best of all, when your free trial is over, you’ll get to pay a special student rate of £5.99 per month!

5. Key apps are supported on Mac and iPad


As a student, you’ll most likely have to use a variety of different apps during your studies - from Microsoft Office to Procreate (depending on the type of degree you’re studying!).

Apple Mac and iPad support all of these key apps - including Logic Pro and Final Cut Pro - meaning you can complete your work with minimal fuss.

6. Get credit when you trade in an existing device


Did you know that you can trade in your existing Apple devices in exchange for credit which can then go towards a new device?! 

If you’re in need of an upgrade and already own an Apple device, this is a great way to not only do your bit for the planet (with Apple recycling all old products) but to also save a bit of cash on your next purchase! 

Whether you’re just about to start university or you’re returning for your final year, investing in Apple tech is always a smart decision. From the seamless integration of devices to high-quality hardware, Apple offers products that will support you throughout your academic journey and beyond. When you factor in Apple’s generous student discount offerings and the long-term value retention of products, it’s a no-brainer!
