Apple's Back to School promotion requires verification through UNiDAYS in many countries, with full terms and conditions available on the promotional pages for Apple's country-specific websites.

Back to School deals will be available when the EDU stores in each country come up in a few hours and they will last through October 23, 2023.

Fun fact: K12 schools in the US run as late as the end of June in some areas, and start as early as late July in other regions. There is only a 3-4 week period during which no US K12 schools are operating, with the exception of summer schools and some year-round experimental sites.
