Buyer's Guide: Deals on Retina MacBook Pro, iPhones, iPad Air 2, Apple Accessories, and More

With the December holidays approaching, retailers are beginning to offer significant discounts off of their products in an attempt to lure shoppers into stores. Walmart has kicked off an ongoing discount on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and MacMall is selling a high-end Retina MacBook Pro for an ultra low price.

We've also got deals on the iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, and discounts on several Apple accessories in this week's Buyer's Guide deals post.

iPhone


Walmart kicked off some new $50 off deals on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus today, which will last through February. A two-year contract is required to get the discounted price, and Walmart also offers a trade-in program to drop the pricing even lower. Deals are available in-store only.

Walmart is selling the 16GB iPhone 6 for $129, down from the previous $179 price tag, and it's also offering the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus for $229, down from $279.
