new year

Apple on Monday announced an upcoming promotion for Chinese New Year. The one-day sale, spotted by MacRumors on Apple’s Hong Kong website, provides free Beats Solo3 wireless headphones with the purchase of select Mac or iPhone models.

The promo begins on January 6 at 8:00 a.m. in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan. The free Solo3 headphones will come in the red colorway, as red is believed to symbolize good fortune and joy, and is found everywhere during Chinese New Year.

The Beats Solo3 headphones made our 2016 Holiday Gift Guide as one of our favorite pairs of Bluetooth headphones. Introduced by Apple last year, they feature the custom W1 chip for easy pairing with Apple devices and class-leading 40+ hour battery life.

In addition to the free headphone promotion, Apple has also posted a New Year gift guide on its website that features the iPhone 7, the iPad Pro, the Apple Pencil, and of course plenty of red accessories such as iPhone cases, Apple Watch bands, and more.

    Are u kidding me I just bought an iPhone 7 and the new pro

    • pauleebe

      The new pro doesn’t qualify, and you have to be in one of those countries listed.

      I was thinking the same thing 🙁

      you have one month after purchase to qualify for any promotion. I got free beats 1month after my mac purchase, cuz the deal wasn’t given at the time of purchase.
      (Unless your purchase doesn’t qualify, like Pauleebe said).
      Hope this helps.

        Sadly I bought one of the most expensive MacBooks, the touch bar 13 inch, but somehow that doesn’t qualify while the cheap ass air does
