Apple Black Friday Deals Include iPad, iPod, MacBook Discounts
Apple this morning unveiled its Black Friday discounts, with price cuts on iPads, iPods, Macs, and more.
On the iPad front, the latest fourth-generation iPad with Retina display received a $41-$61 price cut depending on storage size. The 16GB Wi-Fi version of the 9.7-inch tablet, for example, is $458, or $41 cheaper than normal. The 16GB Wi-Fi plus cellular option, meanwhile, is $558 today rather than $629. If you need a little more storage, the 32GB is $548 or $678, while the 64GB version is $638 and $768.
The older iPad 2 is also cheaper today. Apple only offers a 16GB iPad 2 at this point, but it is $31 off, with the Wi-Fi version selling for $368 and the Wi-Fi plus cellular on sale for $498.
The iPad 2 and fourth-gen iPad are both available to ship in 1-3 business days, according to Apple’s website. The latest iPad mini is not getting a Black Friday discount.
If you’re in the market for an iPod, the new iPod touch – the one that resembles the iPhone 5 – is available for $268 (32GB) or $358 (64GB), a savings of $31 and $41, respectively. The older, fourth-generation iPod touch is getting a $21 price cut to $178 (16GB) and $228 (32GB). A 16GB iPod nano, meanwhile, is $11 cheaper today at $138.
Apple’s new EarPods are $7 cheaper today at $22, while its in-ear headphones with remote and mic are $68, an $11 discount.
Have you been eyeing the new MacBook Pro with Retina display? You’re in luck today as Apple has shaved $101 off its newest Mac, as well as the non-Retina MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, which Apple just debuted last month, now starts at $1,598 instead of $1,699. The 15-inch version, meanwhile, has a starting price of $2,098 rather than $2,199.
Also on sale today is Apple’s AirPort Base Station; AirPort Express is $88 ($11 off), while AirPort Extreme is $158 ($21 off). Time Capsule is also $278, or a $21 discount. The Apple Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad, and Wireless Keyboard are all $11 cheaper today, too.
These deals will also be available in Apple Stores. On Black Friday, Apple Stores will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. local time rather than the usual 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
