With the Fourth of July coming on Monday, many are thinking that there are going to be a lot of deals going on with all kinds of products, but this doesn't necessarily mean that Apple will have any price cuts for their iPhones, iPads, or their laptops like the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. Apple isn't known for having deals for their products at this time, but you can find some deals at certain stores below.
According to DealNews, it is not recommended that you purchase any Apple products around Independence Day. The Apple store doesn't have sales to mark this holiday, but when it comes to back-to-school, they will give consumers a deal. Considering that Apple will release new iPhones, iPads, and often Macs and MacBooks in September, you will just be buying something that you will have to upgrade. That being said, there are still some markdown that you might be able to obtain during the Fourth of July season.
Just so you have something to compare it to, here are the starting prices for the iPhone on the Apple site. The iPhone SE is $399, iPhone 6 is $549, iPhone 6 Plus is $649, iPhone 6S is $649, and the iPhone 6S Plus is $749.
At Best Buy, the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6S starts at $99.99 with 2-year activation from Verizon and Sprint. The iPad mini 2 Wi-Fi Cellular 16 GB is free with purchase and activation of any iPhone on AT&T Next and 2-year activation of the iPad mini 2.
As for Wal-Mart, you can get an iPhone 6S 16GB Refurbished from AT&T for $449.00. There is also a possibility of the Straight Talk Apple iPhone 5S 16 GB 4G LTE Prepaid for $149.00.
So, these are interesting prices, but you could wait for the iPhone 7, due out soon.
As for the iPad, the Apple store has starting prices for all of their tablets. The iPad mini 2 starts at $269, the iPad mini 4 is $399, the iPad Air 2 is $399, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is $599, and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is $799.
At Wal-Mart, it is possible to get the iPad mini 2 16GB Wi-Fi for $229.00. There is also the iPad mini 2 with 32 GB for $309.99.
Like the iPhone, you can possibly just wait for the new version of the iPad.
