Apple has shared its annual holiday gift guide
on its website, with product recommendations such as the 12-inch MacBook
, iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad
Pro, fourth-generation Apple TV
, gift cards, and related accessories. The guide also points gift-givers towards various music products, photography products, games, and toys.
This year's holiday gift guide is less sophisticated than in previous years, such as in 2015
when Apple split gift recommendations into six categories: gaming, photography, music, fitness, learning, and travel. Nevertheless, this year's list provides a basic overview of some of Apple's most popular products and accessories for those unfamiliar.
