We’ve been rounding up the best Apple Black Friday deals for the past few weeks but we got a surprise today. Apple let us know earlier that it would have a ‘one-day shopping event’ – Applespeak for Black Friday sale – and the deals have now gone live in Australia and New Zealand. I wrote earlier that we weren’t expecting too much, and that has sadly been confirmed.

Apple is offering gift cards with a selection of purchases. These range from Aus$35 ($25) when you buy an Apple Watch or Apple TV, through to Aus$200 ($150) on a Mac – but there’s a sting in the tail …

The gift card deals don’t apply to the latest products. The iPhone deal excludes the iPhone 7, the Watch doesn’t include the Series 2 and the Mac deal excludes the latest Touch Bar models (though does include the 2016 13-inch model without Touch Bar).

So basically, it’s up to Aus$200 ($150) on products you probably already bought or don’t want to buy.

Here’s what’s on offer:

  • Aus$35 ($25) on Apple Watch series 1
  • Aus$35 ($25) on Apple TV
  • Aus$75 ($50) on iPhone SE/6s/6s Plus
  • Aus$140 ($100) on iPad Pro (both sizes)/Air 2/mini 4
  • Aus$200 ($150) on the older Macs shown below

The eligible Macs are:

  • 12-inch MacBook
  • 13-inch MacBook Pro (non-Touch Bar model only)
  • 15-inch MacBook Pro (old model only)
  • MacBook Air
  • iMac
  • Mac Pro

While the new Touch Bar MacBook Pro models are in too high a demand for deals, you can find better deals on everything else on Amazon and 9to5Toys.
