Apple announces the 2011 Back To School Deal either Today or at the WWDC 2011.
The Apple Back To School 2011 Deal announcement is a bit overdue. Our initial expectation was that Apple would announce the 2011 Back To School deal in May. Today is the last chance that this is happening. The chances are actually not that bad as today is a Tuesday. Apple announced the 2010 Back To School Deal on May 25th, which was a Tuesday as well. Tuesday is Apple's favorite announcement day after all.
If Apple doesn't announce the Back to School 2011 promotion today than the rumor about Apple making the announcement at the WWDC 2011 is very likely true. This rumor also suggests that Apple is going to offer a new deal. Students could either choose to get $200 off of an Apple iPad with their Mac purchase or get the iPod touch. The iPad deal is what lots of students are hoping for.
The WWDC 2011 kicks off with the keynote on June 6th. We will keep our eyes open to see if Apple is releasing this year's Back To School deal today or if you have to wait until June 6th.
Apple did announce some things today including the WWDC 2011 keynote and iWorks, but not the Back To School 2011 deal. As it stands now it is likely that Apple will unveil the deal for students at the WWDC 2011 next week.
