Apple is sure to make a big splash this holiday season considering that the company recently unveiled three all-new products: the iPhone 8, the iPhone X, and the updated iPad Pro. As fans are well aware, these types of high-end mobile devices usually come alongside an eye-watering price tag, and this is especially true for the iPhone X, a device that that users can spec up well beyond the $1,000 starting pricing mark.
Fortunately, not everyone needs the latest and greatest that Apple has to offer— and even if they do, there are still some excellent deals to be had on new, relatively-new, and tried-and-true Apple devices this Black Friday.
