What Apple deals can you expect on Black Friday?
Just like last year, we’re expecting deals on most of Apple’s devices this Black Friday. That includes deals on AirPods, iPads, Macs, Apple Watch, Apple TVs, and accessories like the Apple Pencil.
You’ll find the best deals for current devices that are new but were announced a while ago. In this case, Apple devices released in 2021 have been getting great deals, and we’re expecting as much during Black Friday.
Apple just recently announced the 10th-generation iPad and 2022 iPad Pros in October, and we don’t anticipate any significant deals for those devices.
However, we have already seen deals for devices that were released in September, like the Apple Watch Series 8 and second-generation AirPods Pro. And Apple devices released earlier this year, like the M2 MacBook Air, M2 13-inch MacBook Pro, M1 iPad Air, have also been getting deals.
Apple’s iPhones don’t typically get deals if you’re looking to buy an iPhone outright, but you’ll find the usual tempting trade-in and activation offers from carriers and retailers.
Should you wait until Black Friday for Apple deals?
You’ll find several deals on Apple devices before Black Friday, but it’s hard to tell whether they will be as good as the deals on Black Friday itself. With that in mind, the official Black Friday and Cyber Monday events should offer even better deals, but availability could be limited.
Where are the best places to find Apple deals?
You’ll find the best Apple deals from retailers like Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and Amazon, and they’ll all have similar competing deals. You should pick whichever retailer is most convenient for you. One thing to be said about retailers with physical locations is that you could have the option to pick up your item on the same day if it’s in stock at your nearest store.
Looking for Apple deals on Apple’s website will be mostly fruitless, as the company itself rarely hosts a deal for its own products. The company does offer gift cards, however. For last year’s Black Friday, Apple offered gift cards of up to $100 when you bought an Apple device.
