Apple teases Black Friday deals on iPads, iPhones, Macs

Deals will be available online after midnight on Thursday and at Apple stores on Friday

Black Friday is one of the few times during the year that Apple knocks down its iPad, iPhone and Mac prices, and the company has confirmed it will offer its version of bargains during a one-day shopping event on Nov. 29.

Apple hasn't released pricing specifics, only saying that deals will be available online after midnight on Thanksgiving and at Apple stores on Friday. The company is pushing an Apple Store app to make purchasing simpler.

Apple typically knocks about $US100 off Macs and about $US50 off iPads, depending on the models. Free shipping is also usually part of the deals.

While other retailers that sell Apple products typically aren't allowed to mark down prices, they often get around this by bundling gift cards with iPads, iPhones and Macs. For example, Target has a doorbuster on the iPad mini (non-Retina display)  for $US300 with WiFi and 16GB of storage. It comes with a $US75 Target gift card. An iPad Air with WiFi and 16GB of storage goes for $US480 and you get a $US100 Target gift card. Staples has already cut $50 off the iPad Air WiFi model with 16GB of storage to $450. Best Buy is cutting the price on iPad 2 with WiFi and 16GB to $300, which is $100 off the usual price.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
