iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, Mac laptops on Americans’ holiday wish lists

Over 180 million shoppers are expected to take advantage of Black Friday deals this holiday season. Smartphones top wish lists this year according to a survey conducted by Gazelle, an online marketplace for consumers to buy and sell previously owned electronic devices.

Forty-four percent of Americans who are looking to purchase new electronic devices over the holidays would like smartphones, with 23% eyeing a new Samsung Galaxy and 21% desiring a new iPhone. Rounding out the top five most wished-for items are the Apple Watch (17%), iPad (16%), and MacBook (14%).

While 30% of consumers are hoping for electronic devices as gifts, only 12% are holding out for smartphone deals, and 16% for tablet bargains. Leading up to Black Friday, Gazelle will be featuring countdown promotions and site wide sales on the certified previously-owned items most sought after this holiday season.
