That shiny and elusive Apple device which you have always lusted after might finally be within reach of your financial ability, thanks to the wonder that we know as Black Friday. What will this year’s Black Friday deals yield in terms of Apple hardware? We take a quick look at the different vendors around us to see how much of a discount that they are offering when it comes to Apple products.
Best Buy’s Apple Black Friday 2016 deals
Best Buy is certainly in the thick of Black Friday 2016 action, where they do have deals which cover a slew of categories -- and thankfully, Apple’s devices have not been left out of the equation. The deals will be available across three different days: from November 24th all the way through to November 26th. Of course, when it comes to their Apple, they too have their iDevice inventory that they would like to push out.
The 9.7-inch iPad Pro (regardless of the model) will be $125 more affordable from the normal $599.99 price point onward, with prices starting from $474.99. If you would want something that is less of a corporate tablet and something that is more for the ordinary man on the street, then any iPad Air 2 model can be yours with a $125 discount as well, which would mean the normal $399.99 and upward price will kick off from a far more affordable $274.99 onward.
Those who are looking for an Apple TV will be able to snag themselves a 4th generation Apple TV with 64GB of internal memory for $159.99 a pop, shaving off $40 from the standard $199.99 price point.
In terms of computing -- be it on the move or while you are tethered to your desk, the 13.3-inch MacBook Air can be yours from $799.99 onward, which would be a $200 discount from the normal price. Of course, there is also the $1,199.99 model which will also shave off a couple of Benjamins from the retail price for Black Friday 2016, allowing you to bring one back for one grand. Those who prefer to work at a desk can look forward to the 21.5-inch iMac with an Intel Core i5 1.6GHz processor which will retail for $899.99 after a $200 discount, and the same discount also applies to the 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display at $1,599.99 a pop.
Target entices with their Black Friday 2016 deals too
Target has some Apple stock to shift as well, where their main Black Friday deals are said to kick off on Thanksgiving Day at 6pm local time. This should give you a better idea on how you would want to plan for the evening, leaving the turkey nice and warm in the oven while you pick some stuff up at your nearest Target. It seems that Target will be offering the 9.7-inch iPad Pro with a $150.99 discount, while the iPad Air 2 will arrive with a $129.99 price cut.
Those who would like the latest iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus are also not left out of the equation, as they can pick one up without having to fork out a single cent upfront, while bringing home the smartphone with a $250 gift card -- although you will need to agree to a 2-year contract with a corresponding mobile carrier, of course. There are also other Black Friday 2016 deals from Target that will include a $71.99 discount on the Apple Watch Series 1, iPods that are going for 20% cheaper, with the iPad mini 2 getting a $70.20 price slash.
