We might be headed towards the most wonderful time of the year, but before we do, we have to jump through the usual hurdles of buying gifts for our loved ones. If you’re struggling to come up with ideas, our 2021 Christmas Gift Guide will give you some food for thought.
YOU CAN DEPEND ON APPLE
Although there’s no denying that there are other companies that offer more innovative and fresh products than Apple’s, the truth is that you can’t go too far wrong with one of the Cupertino company’s products. It’s also good to know that Apple has issued an extended returns policy over the holiday period, so any purchases you make in an Apple Store or on Apple.com are eligible for returns through January 8, with even later returns dates in some countries. Just keep the receipt and if your recipient isn’t happy with their gift, it can be easily exchanged.
It goes without saying that the iPhone 13 is a top contender for the 2021 gift of the year. It’s the world’s most advanced smartphone offering a dramatically more powerful camera system, as well as a display that’s so responsive, “every interaction feels new again”. It also features the world’s fastest smartphone chip and offers great battery life when compared with previous iPhone models, and the best part is that it can be purchased over a two-year deal with Apple, though you might find even more affordable packages when taking out a package with a mobile carrier. The iPhone 13 Pro Max comes in with a 6.7” Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion and the iPhone 13 Pro features a 6.1” display, but you’ll have to act fast if you want one. Some experts have warned that Apple could run out of iPhone 13 models before the holiday season, and some models have already seen delivery times slip. It’s always worth speaking with an authorized Apple representative if you’re not sure whether you’re going to be able to receive your iPhone model in time - they might be able to confirm an exact delivery date or head to an Apple Store for a pick-up.
