Apple on Wednesday published its 2018 holiday gift guide on its website. The annual guide offers Apple product holiday gift suggestions for the folks on your holiday shopping list.
This year’s gift guide focuses on Apple’s newest lineup of devices, organized into color-themed collections. The Cupertino firm usually recommends at least a few third-party products in its gift guide, but has neglected to do so this year.
The focus of the guide is on the iPhone XS (starting at $999), the Apple Watch Series 4 (starts at 499), and their AirPods ($159). Seems logical, as those products are likely at the top of everyone’s Apple holiday gift list.
The page also includes a variety of accessories, including iPhone XS cases, Apple Watch Sport Loops in various colors, and even an iPhone XR-focused section which offers up the iPhone XR ($749 and up – Available in a variety of colors), iTunes Gift Cards, Apple watchbands, the HomePod (349), and more.
Also featured in the various sections of the guide are the new iPad Pro ($749 and up), the Apple Pencil 2 ($129), the Smart Keyboard Folio for the iPad ($79), the Apple TV 4K (from $179), the 13-inch MacBook Air ($1199 and up), and the Magic Mouse 2 ($99).
Alongside its holiday gift guide, Apple also initiated its traditional holiday shopping return period, which extends the usual two-week return period. Most Apple purchases made between November 14, 2018 and December 25, 2018 can be returned through January 8, 2019. Extended returns are available in the United States, Canada, Australia, the UK, and some other regions.
Two-day shipping is available for all purchases, and one-day shipping will also likely be an option later in December, which will be attractive to the last-minute shoppers among us.
