Apple confirms Black Friday deals bonanza

Apple has announced that it will be bringing Black Friday fever to the UK once again this year, announcing a "one-day Apple shopping event".

The company will be running the deals this Friday, 29 November, both in stores and online. Exact details of what will be on offer have yet to be announced.

Black Friday, the day when businesses offer aggressive discounts on their products to herald the start of the Christmas shopping season, has begun to catch on in the UK in recent years.

Apple first brought Black Friday deals to the UK back in 2008, offering discounts on iPods and macs. Since then, it has established the event as something of a tradition by running promotions every final Friday of November.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that the iPad mini and the iPad Aid were going to be part of the Black Friday deals in the US when retail giant Target announced it would be offering free gift cards to those that bought the devices.
