Following the release of Apple's official guide, Apple is teasing its Apple Store deals today with a homepage banner, inviting customers to "save the date". Last year, the maximum $200 gift card only came with the purchase of certain new Macs, and the then-current iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPad Pro, and Apple Watch Series 4 devices from the promotion entirely.
The exact details of the offer are yet to be announced.
Apple Watch 4 Global Positioning System and Cellular, 44mm: £529 £459 at John LewisIf you're after cellular support on the Apple Watch 4, this is the best price we've seen for when it's encased in aluminium.
Gift card giveaways are Apple's usual approach to holiday shopping deals. Apple's also already pretty late to the game; Walmart announced its Black Friday deals a month ago, and most other big retailers like Best Buy and Amazon had posted their deals earlier this month.
The company published a teaser on its shopping event page, revealing that on Black Friday, new devices will come with gift cards up to $200.
Apple has taken the approach of giving away gift cards with purchases for its Black Friday shopping event for the past few years now. "Friday through Monday", Apple says in its teaser. The retailer is offering the 44mm Apple Watch 4 with Global Positioning System and cellular (and a stainless steel case) for $399, which means it's offering a $300 discount on the device, and best price we've come across for the smartwatch yet.
The swim-proof smartwatch also features a 30% larger display making it easier to see health stats, messages, and notifications. Instead check out old-school retailers like Best Buy and Amazon - as well as phone carriers - for iPhone deals.
