Earlier this week, Apple made it harder for consumers to use its discounted educational pricing by implementing a third-party website to verify student and faculty IDs. On Friday, however, Apple quietly removed the new requirement, according to a report by MacRumors.

Apple on Wednesday updated its website to ask users to register with Unidays to verify their status, but the website now has no such requirement when people are looking to buy an Apple product using the education discount.

Apple’s education pricing discount typically cuts about 10% off the price of Apple products such as desktops, laptops, and tablets for students and educators. The discount is intended for university students and professors of all levels of education.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
