How to get the best Black Friday Apple deals
Buying an Apple device is usually a little easier than, for example, trying to find a great smart home device. That’s because there are hundreds of smart home products out there, and finding the perfect one can be hard. If you’re an Apple fan and need a laptop, you’re looking at getting either a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro. Need a phone? You’re getting an iPhone. Smartwatch? Apple Watch.
Of course, that’s not a bad thing. Apple products are among the best in their class, plus they all work together incredibly well.
To find the best Black Friday Apple deals, it’s worth just making a list of the products you actually want. If it goes on sale, pull the trigger. If not, you can wait until Cyber Monday, or later.
Black Friday vs Cyber Monday Apple deals
Black Friday offered some excellent Apple deals, however if you missed out, don’t worry — we’re likely to get many of the same deals over the weekend and into Cyber Monday.
Traditionally, Black Friday has been the time to take advantage of in-store deals, while Cyber Monday, as the name suggests, has been for the online deals. That, however, has changed recently, and that change has been accelerated by the pandemic. These days, you can still get Black Friday deals online — so don’t feel like you have to rush to the store to get a good deal.
In the end, if you find a great deal on Black Friday, and don’t know for sure that there will be a better one on Cyber Monday, then it’s worth buying the device. It’s entirely possible that Cyber Monday will offer a better deal — but unless you can cancel your purchase and re-order on Cyber Monday, it’s not even worth looking on Cyber Monday.
Where are the best Black Friday Apple deals?
You can get great Apple deals from all kinds of retailers. Traditionally, Apple itself hasn’t offered very many Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals — so if you want to buy straight from Apple, you may not get much better prices than you would now. It’s still worth waiting to see though.
The better deals will be from third-party retailers. For example, Best Buy, Walmart, and Amazon will likely offer deals on MacBooks, iPads, and AirPods. We’ll have to see what kinds of deals we get for the iPhone — the iPhone often doesn’t get very big discounts.
Should I wait until Black Friday to buy Apple products?
Yes, but given the fact that it’s Black Friday, you don’t really have to wait. If you see a great deal, pull the trigger!
Last year’s Black Friday Apple deals
Last year, we saw tons of great Black Friday Apple deals, including from Apple itself. In 2020, Apple offered a $150 Apple Store gift card on select purchases. Other stores, however, offered discounts on AirPods Pro, select Apple Watch models, and even the iPad Pro.
We didn’t really see many discounts on iPhone models, and it’s unclear if that will change or not this year. If iPhone 12 models are still on sale, it’s likely they’ll get discounts first, before the iPhone 13 models that will only be a month or two old at that point.
