Apple Black Friday deals go live in Australia

Teased at earlier this week, Apple’s Black Friday deals for 2013 have been revealed, with the promotions now appearing in Australian Apple Store due to the time zone difference.

In a departure from prior years where modest discounts were offered on a selection of products, this year’s deals take the form of gift cards included with the purchase of a Mac, iPad, or iPod, as well as certain accessories. Gift card amounts in the Australian Store are AU$150 for a Mac, AU$75 for an iPad, and AU$50 for an iPod. It is likely similar amounts will be offered in the U.S. Store when Apple’s Black Friday deals go live here tomorrow morning. Notably, a gift card is not included with the purchase of the Retina iPad mini.
