It’s Black Friday, which means it’s time for larger-than-usual discounts on Apple products. We have a more general roundup of the best Black Friday tech deals on the site, but because we know many people are specifically looking to grab new Apple gear this holiday season, we’re giving special mention the best Apple deals we’re seeing this Black Friday.
Apple tends to be stingier than most this time of year when it comes to deals, typically offering modest price drops and gift card incentives. That’s still the case with many devices this year, particularly when it comes to the latest crop of iPhones, but there are still a few eye-catchers worth noting.
One example is a new low price on Apple’s AirPods Pro, as the wireless noise-cancelling earphones are currently available for $170 at Amazon. That’s $80 off Apple’s MSRP. Amazon lists the device as “temporarily out of stock” as of this writing, but if you don’t mind a wait, you can still lock in a purchase at the discounted price. The standard AirPods, meanwhile, are down to $110, which is $10 off their all-time low. If you prefer something more workout-friendly, select colors of the Beats Powerbeats Pro—another set of true wireless earbuds we’ve recommended—are down to $160. That’s the lowest price we’ve tracked.
Beyond that, B&H and Adorama are offering modest $100 discounts on the latest round of Macs equipped with Apple’s own M1 silicon, though again it looks like you’ll have to wait a bit for actual shipping details, since the devices currently appear to be backordered.
The new Apple Watch Series 6, meanwhile, is down to a new low of $330 in select finishes, while the latest iPad Mini is $5 off its all-time low at $335. We’re also seeing a modest $30 price drop on the most recent iPad Air, which we reviewed favorably earlier this month. You can find our full Apple deals roundup below, and we’ll be sure to update this post if any new worthwhile offers arise over the course of the day.
