Black Friday 2016, one-day shopping event that had been making headlines has come and gone. However, not everyone has something to show; there are disappointed shoppers, who did not get even the $150 less for a Touch Bar MacBook Pro from Apple. But there is an issue with MacBook Pro. The Apple ports and drives are no longer there, meaning one has to either buy a new cable or better still use an adapter to keep up with the current gear.
The news is a frustration to a majority of Apple’s loyalists given that it is just a month ago when the still-ubiquitous headphone jack was killed. On the other hand, the Cupertino Company was not generous discounts. Unlike the other tech firms, Apple was only offering gift cards, which were in varying amounts for various products. However, there is hope for better Apple deals from the upcoming Cyber Monday.
Apple ports and drives disappoint: But there is something worth noting
The removal of Apple ports and drives from the celebrated MacBook Pro may be a pain in the back for many. The tech firm may have dissatisfied many, but again it is also good to give credit where it is worth. Notably, memory has it that Apple has revolutionalized the tech world, having taken it to another level.
If we can take a quick stroll down memory lane, one of the company’s devices, the iMac G3 faced out the use of floppy disks. Before then, it had helped in shifting the industry from 5-inch floppy disks to 3.5-inch floppy disks. In 2008, Apple launched a trio of new MacBooks and more has happened to date including a handful of accessories that one can use to enhance MacBook’s connection.
What should be expected from Apple deals on Cyber Monday?
THE MORNING REPORT
Start your workday the right way with the news that matters most.
Despite Apple’s Black Friday mishaps, there is still a lot on offer from the Cyber Monday. For example, Best Buy, one of the brick-and-mortar retailers will be having a great sale of its Mac Book Pro 2016 at the cost of $999. Its specs include Core i5 CPU, 256GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM. The purchase of an iPhone 7 256GB will attract a gift card worth up to $250 from Best Buy.
As this goes down, Target will be offering a 15% discount on iPhone 7/7 Plus. Other discounts range from $150-250 on the iPad Pro 9.7-inch 32GB. This implies that the absence of Apple ports and drives is not all in vain.
