Apple Store Boxing Day sales 2021

Apple's sleek and stylish aesthetic is unmatched in the consumer electronics space, so it's no surprise that devices like the iPhone and iPad are as highly sought after as they are. As with most products that pride themselves on their looks, Apple devices carry a premium price tag that many people simply cannot afford.

Boxing Day gives budget-conscious Aussies a way around this, with Apple offering discounts on many of its products through the Apple Store. Older-model iPhones, iPads and MacBooks tend to see the biggest price cuts, as Apple wants to clear them out to make room for the latest top-of-the-line devices it rolls out each and every year.

What products does Apple sell?

Unsurprisingly, the Apple Store deals primarily in Apple's own products, from the new iPhone XS and iPhone XR to the latest iPad Pro and MacBook Air. There's no shortage of add-ons available for these devices, either, whether it be Apple AirPods, the Apple Pencil or extra bands for the Apple Watch.

The Apple Store does sell products from other brands as well, mostly in the form of accessories to its own devices. Some examples are Beats headphones, Ultimate Ears wireless speakers, Otterbox iPhone cases, Logitech iPad keyboards and LaCie portable hard drives.

Shopping online vs in-store


There are arguments to both shopping online and heading in to your local Apple Store on Boxing Day. Relaxing at home with your laptop and credit card handy is far less stressful and makes comparing prices from other retailers as simple as opening up a new tab in your web browser.

Brave the Boxing Day crowds by heading into a physical Apple Store and you'll be able to ask the staff any questions you have around different iPad models or the compatibility of certain accessories. You also get to take your purchase home immediately instead of waiting for it to be delivered.

What's the Apple Store returns policy?

If you decide you're unhappy with your Apple Store purchase, you can return it to any Apple Retail Store within 14 days of buying it (or 14 days of receiving your item for online orders). Alternatively, certain products are eligible for return via Apple's online system. After submitting the necessary information, Apple will email you with details around collection of your order and once it has received the return and assessed it, another email will be sent confirming your refund.

Tips and tricks for shopping the Boxing Day sales:

Get ready, because you’re about to get a whole lot better at shopping the sales.

  • Set yourself a budget and stick to it! The most important rule before you start your Boxing Day sale shopping spree: decide on what you can afford and don’t overspend. It’s easy to get caught up in the moment and splurge on things you don’t really need.
  • Make a list. Take a minute or two to look through what you already own and take note of what you’re missing or what’s in need of an update. Have a browse online to decide on what you really want.
  • Add to your wish list in advance. If you’re serious about Boxing Day sales, do yourself a favour and spend some time going through various retailer websites in advance. Come the morning of the sale you’ll be able to process your order right away, eliminating the chance of missing out on sell-out items.
  • Do your research. During the Boxing Day sales, retailers will be very competitive on prices. It pays to shop around and check out different websites to see if there's a better deal elsewhere.

    Hello, I was wondering if there were any deals on the Ipod 6 and what is the difference between new and refurbished?

      Hi Sam,

      Thank you for your enquiry.

      Currently, there’s no deals for Ipod 6 on this page but some special deals are available for other Apple products. You may click the green ‘Get deal on site’ button to know more about those special deals on some Apple products.

      New items are unused items that were released fresh from production while refurbished items are previously returned items to a manufacturer or vendor for various reasons. Refurbished items are then repaired and tested for functionality and defects before they are resold to the market.

      Kind regards,
