Apple’s Black Friday shopping event now live around the world

Apple has launched its Black Friday shopping event around the world.

The Cupertino company kicked off the event in Australia yesterday, and it’s now expanded to many more markets around the world including the United Kingdom and the United States.

Although Apple doesn’t offer the same level of deep discounts offered by other companies like Google and Samsung, it rewards customers who buy an Apple product with an Apple Gift Card to spend on apps, movies, and more.

The limited-time promotion is only available on the Apple Store app, inside Apple Stores, and on the website. The offer can’t be combined with any other promotion, like student discounts.

Apple will offer consumers a $50 gift card when they buy an iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone SE, a £25 gift card when they buy a pair of second- or third-generation AirPods, and $50 for AirPods Pro. $75 is offered for AirPods Max and up to $200 is offered for the 27-inch iMac.

Apple excludes recently-released products, like the new iPhone 13 and Apple Watch Series 7, from the promo.
