The madness that is Black Friday is just around the corner, and Apple products will be no exception to the wave of discounts you will come across during the shopping holiday. While you might not find 50% discounts on the biggest and most current Apple devices, such as the iPhone 12 Mini and M1 MacBook Air, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some good Apple Black Friday deals to be found if you’re looking in the right places.
All the big retailers, from Amazon to Walmart to Target, will be offering deals on Apple phones, laptops, and wireless earbuds, which will include the biggest discount on the AirPods Pro we’ve ever seen. But there are also solid Apple Black Friday deals on the company’s more affordable offerings, including the iPhone SE, Apple Watch SE and Airpods.
But this is just the start. New deals continue to roll in every day, so it’s definitely not out of the question that bigger and better Apple Black Friday deals will be rolling in between now and November 27. Keep reading to find out what’s already been announced.
AirPods Pro Deals
If you’re an iPhone owner, the convenience of using Airpods Pro cannot be overstated. Their combination of amazing audio quality, excellent noise-canceling capabilities and ease of use are unparalleled when paired with Apple’s smartphones, and with Black Friday among us, some of the best ever Apple Black Friday deals on AirPods Pros are being rolled out.
Woot is currently selling the AirPods Pro for $189, which is way below their original $249 MSRP and $200 price they’ve typically been going for since Amazon Prime Day. In addition to excellent audio quality and advanced features such as 3D spatial audio, the AirPods Pro also offers some of the best noise-canceling you can find in a pair of wireless earbuds.
But starting on November 25, Walmart will be offering them for $169, which is simply insane. While it seems like a no-brainer to wait for the Walmart sale, there’s a good chance those will sell out quickly, and there are no guarantees that other retailers will also follow suit and slash prices. Either way, you have options when it comes to picking up a pair of AirPods Pro on the cheap.
MacBook Pro Deals
While we still believe that the M1 MacBook Air is absolutely the best laptop to buy, especially at $999, there are Apple Black Friday deals on the top MacBook Pro laptops that will certainly be worth considering for some.
The 16-Inch MacBook Pro, complete with an Intel Core i7 processor and 16 GB of RAM, is currently available for $2,149, which is $250 off its MSRP, while the Core i9 version is $300 off its regular price, selling for $2,499. While the MacBook Air can nearly rival its performance for a fraction of the price, it can’t compete when it comes to screen size. So if a big laptop screen is a must for you, these are definitely worth consideration during Black Friday.
Furthermore, the new M1 MacBook Pro is currently $1,250, which is a $50 discount (not bad considering it just came out this week). The most significant difference between the new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air is a fan, which allows the Pro to run at higher speeds for longer under heavy workloads. If you’re a power user who really puts a laptop through its paces, opting for the pricier model could be worth it for you.
Unfortunately, there have been no killer deals announced for the new iPhone 12 models, but if you’re in search of a more affordable iPhone, there is an amazing Apple Black Friday deal on the 2020 iPhone SE.
For those who don’t mind going with a prepaid carrier, Walmart is selling the iPhone SE for $199, which is $250 less than what you can normally get it for. This phone takes the design and screen of the iPhone 8 and throws in the A13 chip from the iPhone 11, which not only improves app performance but gives the camera a boost as well. The big catch here is that you can only use this phone with the Straight Talk carrier. But considering that the iPhone SE doesn’t have 5G, that might not be a big deal either way.
Apple Watch Deals
In 2020, smartwatches have been more relevant than ever, thanks to their fitness tracking powers and health monitoring capabilities. And during Black Friday, you’ll be able to snag a few Apple Black Friday deals on models new and old.
Amazon and Target are both offering the Apple Watch Series 6 for $349, which is the lowest price this watch has ever been. In addition to all-new upgraded sensors and processors, this watch also comes with the ability to monitor your blood oxygen levels, and can even function as an ECG, which makes it the most capable Apple Watch you can buy.
Both retailers are also offering the Apple Watch SE for $229, which again, is the lowest price this smartwatch has dropped to yet. It may not have some of the more advanced features as the Series 6, but you can be assured it can track all of your core activity just as accurately while inflicting less damage on your wallet.
Walmart will be selling the 38mm Apple Watch Series 3 for $119 starting on November 25, which is $50 less than what it has been going for in recent times, and is the lowest price we’ve ever seen an Apple Watch sell for. At this point, the Series 3 is an admittedly dated model, but can still track your activity, play music, make calls and texts, monitor your heart rate and offer navigation. With a price this low, it’s a great way to try out an Apple Watch for a year and see how it fits into your life before splurging on whatever new Apple Watch comes around in 2021. Be sure to keep an eye on this in the coming days.
Beats Headphones Deals
Beats headphones may have been overshadowed by AirPods in recent years, but they’re still excellent products in their own right, and as part of the Apple Black Friday deals, you can save up to $180 on select models.
At Amazon and Target, you can pick up a pair of the Moss-colored PowerBeats Pro true wireless earbuds for $159, which is $90 off their normal going price and $15 less than their all-time low we’ve seen on the internet. These not only sound great but are still some of the best earbuds you can buy for working out.
Amazon and Target are also selling the Dark Blue Beats Solo Pro on-ear headphones for $179 and $199 respectively, which is $120 less than they normally go for, and $20 less than the price we’ve typically been seeing the Dark Blue model selling for. In addition to coming equipped with active noise-canceling, these headphones offer 22 hours of battery life, which means you’ll rarely have to worry about being without your tunes.
Target meanwhile has a deal going on for the Beats Studio 3, which is the over-ear model offering the best audio quality in a pair of Beats headphones. You can get them for $174 at Target, which is a $179 discount off their normal $349 price.
And finally, Amazon has the Solo 3, which is another on-ear model. They lack some of the fancier bells and whistles, such as noise-cancellation, but the Rose Gold version is currently available for $157, which is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for these.
