Say sayonara to Apple's education discount loophole

Cult of Mac Today
For decades, it was possible to get a hefty discount (10% or more) on new Apple hardware if you attested to being a student or teacher.
It was based on an honor system, and no one checked. We used it several times when my wife and/or daughter were teaching in the local school district.
Now Apple is using a third-party company to verify whether buyers are indeed students or staff before they can make a purchase.
The legendary Apple education discount loophole has been closed. It’s the end of an era!

Full-page grabs weren’t working in iOS 15. Looked around. Someone suggested an Apple support hint to launch Safari from App Library and not an app folder. I tried that. It *worked*. WTAF?

“When you’re young, you look at television and think, ‘There’s a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down.’ But when you get a little older, you realize that’s not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That’s a far more depressing thought. Conspiracy is optimistic! You can shoot the bastards! We can have a revolution! But the networks are really in business to give people what they want. It’s the truth.” – Steve Jobs
