Apple Inc. has released its 2016 Holiday Gift Guide, though Black Friday deals are still a mystery. The Cupertino-based firm isn’t known for offering great deals on Black Friday. Last year it offered iTunes Gifts of varying amounts depending on what the customer purchased.
What Apple recommends this holiday?
Within the Holiday Gift Guide, the firm has given various product recommendations including, the iPhone 7, MacBook, Apple TV, iPad, Apple Watch. To put it another way, Apple feels that all its products will be a great to gift this Holiday and to some extent, this is right too. It goes without saying that newly launched iPhone 7 and MacBook Pro are already the favorite gifts of many shoppers.
“There’s an art to finding the perfect gift. And nothing can bring to life the passion and creativity of the people on your list like a gift from Apple,” the iPhone maker says.
Those fond of music can go for Beats Solo3 headphones, a ROLI Lightpad Block, two models of SONOS wireless speakers and the Ultimate Ears BOOM wireless speaker, as per Apple’s recommendation. Further, one can also go for Powerbeats 3, latest earbuds with the W1 chips. For photographers, the firm is offering accessories that will improve iPhone 7’s camera like the Manfrotto TwistGrip tripod and DJI OSMO mobil Gimbal, as well as, the DJI Mvic Pro Drone foe aerial photography.
