On the off chance that you were doubting that Apple would have a Black Friday event this year, it looks as though your doubts were for naught. As reported by MacRumors, a teaser page popped up on the online Apple Store for Australia, promising a one-day shopping event on November Friday, 29.

It’s the week of updates and shutdowns, of explosions and insomnia. In short, it’s another week of the biggest news stories from the writer of Mac|Life, getting you up to date with everything you ever might have missed that you shouldn’t have. So without further ado….
