iPad gets education discounts; NTT DoCoMo version on June 10th

updated 09:25 am EDT, Wed May 28, 2014

Discounts knock just $20-30 off prices

Apple has extended discounts to the iPad at its educational store. The cuts are relatively modest, in the US only knocking $20 off of the cost of the Mini, Retina Mini, and fourth-generation iPad, plus $30 off of the iPad Air. That puts 16GB Wi-Fi models of the tablets at $279, $379/$379 and $469, respectively.

The change has yet to apply to all countries, but also appears to be making its way into colleges and universities belonging to the Apple on Campus program. To qualify for Apple's educational discounts, a person has to be working or studying in higher education, the parent of one of those students, or employed at a K-12 school.

Simultaneously, Apple has announced that the iPad will be coming to Japan's biggest carrier, NTT DoCoMo, on June 10th. This includes the Air and the Retina Mini, both of which will operate on DoCoMo's LTE network. Although data plans have already been listed, people won't be able to preorder the hardware itself until June 2nd.
