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.
