Apple is offering $50 off an Apple Watch… if you buy an iPhone
Apple has confirmed it is offering a discount when the Apple Watch and iPhone are purchased together from some official retail stores in the United States.
The company, which rarely entertains discounts or price cuts, is offering $50 off when customers snap up the smartphone and wearable combo.
Considering the Apple Watch is about as useful as a chocolate teapot without an iPhone, the discounted bundle makes sense.
However, it’s not usually a road Apple would consider going down.
The company has claimed revealing the numbers would offer an advantage to its competitors, so has remained mum.

There’s no pervading evidence or feeling the Watch has been a flop, but Apple using a financial incentive to make it more appealing to customers is telling in its own way.
Clearly the firm can’t be entirely happy with sales so is experimenting with a new scheme in its Boston and San Francisco area stores until November 15.
Would this sort of offer entice you to double down on Apple tech? Or is $50 (about £30) a derisory discount not worthy of your consideration?
