Black Friday offers on select Apple smartphones and tablets are coming to major retailers throughout the U.S. in 2015. These include the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPad Air and iPad Mini series. At this time, no store has confirmed whether Apple's newest iPad Pro is getting a Black Friday discount. Sales for the iPad Pro begins Wednesday, November 11.
Deals at Best Buy
This week, the following Best Buy Black Friday deals have been revealed. Many of the discounts are for the iPad tablet series.
The 128 GB iPad Air 2 will sell for $574.99, which is a $125 saving. For $499.99, buyers can purchase the 64GB iPad Air 2, and save $100. A similar saving is available for the 16GB iPad Air 2, which will sell for $399.99
Apple's iPad Mini series is also getting the price slash. The 128GB iPad Mini 4 is selling for $499.99 while the 64GB iPad Mini 4 is going for $399.99. Both offers may save $100 for the customer.
Unfortunately, there is no word on whether the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus will be getting a discount. Still, customers will get a $200 Best Buy gift card if they purchase, lease or trade-in an iPhone that is newer than iPhone 5.
Target Offers on iPhones and iPads
Here is a rundown of what is being offered at Target for iPhones and iPads on Black Friday. Bear in mind, all iPhone Black Friday deals require a 2-year subscription with Verizon or Sprint.
The 16GB iPhone 6s Plus with 2-year contract is selling for $249.99 on Black Friday. Meanwhile, the 16GB iPhone 6s with 2-year contract is going up for $149.99. Both 16GB phones have had $50 slashed from their original price.
Target may offer that the 64GB variants for both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be included in the Black Friday deal. However, the retailer did not mention what the selling price will be.
Two versions of the iPad Air will be available for a discount as well. The iPad Air 2 will be selling at $499.00 with free $150 Target gift card. In contrast, the original iPad Air will sell for $399.00 with free $100 Target gift card.
iPad Pro Current Status
Though there are Black Friday deals on some popular Apple products, the iPad Pro does not seem to be included in those offers. That is because the tablet is the newest Apple device to date. In fact, the iPad Pro will officially go on sale this week.
Apple has temporarily offered a rather small $12 discount on all iPad Pro preorders. This deal will expire on the day the device starts selling.
Still, nothing is set in stone regarding whether a Black Friday deal will crop up eventually for the iPad Pro. Consumers will need to wait for more information from third-party retailers regarding whether there will be a Black Friday offer on the iPad Pro.
