As expected, Apple has launched its Black Friday promotions in U.S. and Canadian Apple Stores, once again offering gift cards in place of discounts, as the company has done over the past few years. Apple is including a $150 gift card for customers purchasing a Mac, $100 for the iPad Pro, $50 for the iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE, and $25 Apple Watch Series 1, and fourth-generation Apple TV. Notably, Apple’s most recent product releases — such as the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Apple Watch Series 2, and new MacBook Pro models — are not eligible for the gift card promotion, and refurbished and educationally-priced products do not qualify.
