Apple is planning Black Friday discounts again this year.
The company today put a teaser on its site, saying that it will be holding a "special one-day Apple shopping event" on Friday. Reading between the lines, we take that to mean discounts. Apple lists the iPad, iPod, and Mac as gift ideas. It made no mention of the iPhone.
As MacStories points out, it appears Apple will be offering the deals worldwide. As of this writing, the Black Friday deal teaser is being displayed on Apple's Australia, Italy, and U.K. online stores.
There are a few caveats you should keep in mind. For one, Apple mentions only its "Online Store," seeming to indicate that it might not offer the same discounts in its retail outlets. The company is also waiting until Friday to unveil the deals it will offer customers that day.
Apple has been holding special Black Friday events for years. But its offers haven't always been so exciting. In 2009, for example, it took just $101 off its MacBook Pro models and $31 off its iPod Touch.
But Apple product discounts don't come along too often. And those who want to save a few bucks might want to head back over to the Apple online store later this week to see what's offered.
