In the annual ritual of consumerism, iStore SA has revealed its Black Friday deals for 2023, enticing those stuck in the Apple ecosystem with promises of discounts on an array of products.

If you’re not in the ecosystem, however, this may be the perfect opportunity to get your hands on the latest and greatest Apple products, from cutting-edge Macs to iPhones and Apple Watches.

The buy-in

While some may argue that these deals don’t break the mould of traditional Black Friday offerings, they may still be worth it to others.

Undoubtedly stealing the spotlight are the iPhones – the devices that have become synonymous with Apple. The iPhone 11 (64GB), is available in classic black and pristine white, at just R10,000.

For those with a more expensive taste, the iPhone 13 (128GB) is up for grabs. Priced at R16,000, the iPhone 13 is available in various shades – midnight, starlight, green and blue. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find any special offers on the latest iPhone 15 range – guess we’ll have to wait at least another year for that.

iStore is offering massive discounts on iPhone accessories – we recommend you check out the phone covers in particular. Some third-party cases have been marked down to R100 from R500, for example. So it may be a good opportunity to ditch your old case while they won’t hurt your wallet.

One of the more impressive deals is the Apple Watch Series 8 45mm, which is listed for just R10,000, down from R16,000.

From iStore to your desk

Beyond the iPhones, you’ll also find special prices on various audio accessories, Macs, Apple Watches, and more. Audiophiles can indulge in the Sony WH-1000XM5 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones, priced at R8,000. Meanwhile, the Beats Studio Buds True Wireless Noise Cancelling Earphones are available for R2,500.

The M1 13-inch MacBook Air with 256GB storage is priced at R16,000. If you’re after something larger, the 15-inch M2 MacBook Air with 256GB storage, available in silver, midnight, and starlight, is priced at R28,000.

With enticing deals on its in-house brands and accessories, the iStore offers a few neat deals if you’ve been after something in the catalogue. We’ll be honest, this isn’t the most exciting Black Friday lineup we’ve seen locally, but it’s worth a look.
