Buy the Right Apple Product for Christmas

Have you ever bought an amazing piece of technology only to find out 3 months later that there is a newer, brighter and better version out? While technology will always age, there are “ripe” times to buy – when models have recently been updated. Likewise, there are bad times to purchase technology – when models have not been updated recently and are about to be updated soon.

If you are looking to buy that perfect Apple product for your perfect person, here is a helpful list of Apple products that have just recently been updated and are likely good purchases this Christmas.
