  • The best Apple Black Friday deals live now include discounts on iPhones, AirPods, iPads, MacBooks, and Apple Watches.
  • The $250 AirPods Pro are available for an all-time low price of $169.99 on Amazon. They are currently out of stock on Amazon, but it’s possible that they will come back in stock throughout Black Friday.

  • Save $200 off an Intel-based MacBook Air, available for $799 on Amazon.
  • Retailers like Walmart, Target, and Best Buy are offering tons of discounts on Apple Watches, iPads, and MacBooks too.

While Apple doesn’t usually offer Black Friday deals, that doesn’t mean you can’t get big savings on Apple products during this shopping weekend. Retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy have already slashed prices on Apple Watch, Airpods, iPads, iPhones, laptops, and more, and we expect those discounts to continue through the weekend and into Cyber Monday

And, if you prefer to buy direct from  Apple, you won’t be missing out: The company is offering gift cards of up to $150 when you buy eligible products.

Among the best Apple

Black Friday
deals are the AirPod Pro wireless earbuds, which usually cost $250. Amazon is selling them for an all-time low of $169.99, which is incredible for one of the best accessories you can get. They are currently out of stock on Amazon, but it’s possible that they will come back in stock throughout Black Friday.

Also worth a look are the Beats Studio 3 Wireless headphones that are on sale for $175 on Target at the moment — that’s 50% off the full $350 price tag. It’s a good time to get Apple headphones right now with these deals. 

The Apple AirPods Pro look and sound better than previous-generation AirPods, plus they have noise cancellation built right into them and integrate perfectly with other Apple devices.

Apple AirPods are some of the most popular truly wireless headphones around — and for good reason. They are incredibly easy to use and work with all of your Apple devices. During Black Friday, these headphones will drop to $100, or about $30 less than they usually cost.

Apple’s AirPods with wireless charging case have a clever design that makes them very comfortable, and the pleasant sound quality will surprise many. However, they don’t isolate the wearer from the outside world. The current $150 sale price is pretty good, but the lowest price we’ve seen so far is $140.

You can also find this price on Apple AirPods with a Wireless Charging Case at Walmart and Best Buy.

The iPhone Mini has a smaller 5.4-inch OLED screen, and it’s otherwise identical to the iPhone 12, including the same powerful A14 processor. It’s one of the more affordable iPhone models you can buy at the moment. Walmart is offering it for both AT&T and Verizon users for $579 with monthly payments down from $699.

The new 5G iPhone 12 has a big, bright 6.1-inch OLED screen, the latest A14 processor, dual cameras, and a reasonable price tag for a flagship phone. Walmart is offering the iPhone 12 for $679 with monthly payments for AT&T and Verizon customers.

The new iPhone 12 Pro has 5G, a bigger 6.1-inch OLED screen, the latest processor, and a pro-level three-camera setup for excellent photos. Walmart is offering the iPhone 12 Pro for $849 with monthly payments for AT&T and Verizon users.

The iPad Pro for 2020 has a faster processor that rivals some laptops, a new ultra-wide camera, mics fit for studio recordings, and a LiDAR Scanner for depth sensing.

The latest iPad Pro from Apple is a titan of performance, battery life, screen technology, and productivity with the new trackpad support. It also comes with with a Lidar scanner for augmented reality applications. It’s currently $100 off that brings it under $1,000.

The brand new MacBook Pro (model number MVVL2LL/A) ups the usual 15.4-inch screen size to an even 16 inches on the diagonal, upping the pixel resolution along with it. It’s also the first modern Apple laptop to feature the “Magic Keyboard” design.

On top of the usual fitness and health tracking features and sensor you’d find on previous generations, the Apple Watch Series 6 lets you measure your blood oxygen level, take an ECG from your wrist, see your fitness metrics directly on your wrist.

You can also find this price on the Apple Watch Series 6 at Walmart.

The Series 5 is a model that Apple doesn’t sell anymore, but it’s still a great buy if you can get it for less than the Series 6. It’s similar to the cheaper Apple Watch SE, but with an always-on display and advanced health capabilities like ECG monitoring that the SE doesn’t, this feature-rich Apple Watch is a steal at $300.

The Apple Watch SE is the perfect blend of features and affordability. This recently released Apple Watch is selling for less than $20 its usual price — which was already a bargain for all it offers.

The Apple Watch SE is Apple’s more affordable new watch, offering features like fall detection, a built-in compass, and other health and fitness features. This version also supports cellular connectivity, meaning it can connect to the internet even when your phone isn’t nearby.

The Series 3 is still sold by Apple, which is a testament to its quality and reliability. It’s an ideal smartwatch for the iPhone user who wants the core experience of the Apple Watch without going overboard with spending. Its MSRP is good at $229, and any deals you can find make it even more worthwhile.

This is the 42mm version of the Series 3 Apple Watch, so it has all the same specs and features as the one above except for one thing: It has a larger case.

The Beats Solo Pro headphones look great, have a comfortable fit, and they boast excellent noise- cancellation tech. This discounted price is the best we’ve ever seen on these H1-equipped headphones.

We consider the Powerbeats Pro to be the best alternative to AirPods for iPhone users. Right now you can buy a pair for only $160, an excellent $90 drop.

You can also find this price on the Powerbeats Pro at Target and Amazon.

Does Apple offer deals on Black Friday?

Instead of discounts off products, Apple usually offers gift cards when purchasing select products on Black Friday. Last year, for example, Apple’s promotion included gift cards up to $200 on select purchases. Apple has not yet said whether it plans to offer a similar deal in 2020. But, last year it made the announcement on November 25, so we may hear more about upcoming gift card promotions in the coming days.

Should I buy from Amazon, Target, Best Buy, or Walmart?

Many of these retailers offer very similar deals on products like the AirPods and the Apple Watch, which means you’ll have a couple of options should one retailer go out of stock. In instances where multiple retailers offer the same product at the same price, consider which retailer is most convenient for you in terms of shipping options. If you have an Amazon Prime membership and want to get the product as fast as possible, it might make more sense to purchase through Amazon. But, if you’d rather pick up the item at your nearby Target or Best Buy, you should consider ordering from your preferred brick-and-mortar retailer. Note to make sure you are purchasing from the retailer, not a third-party reseller.

Do these stores offer curbside pickup?

Yes, Target, Best Buy, and Walmart all offer curbside pickup. But, you should check with your local retailer since the rules may vary by location and items purchased. Walmart, for example, says that not all stores offer curbside pickup for Black Friday deals.

How do we choose the best Apple deals?

We select products that meet our high standard of coverage based on testing and research. This includes testing Apple’s products as well similar devices from its main competitors.

We also research prices across retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy and compare them against Apple’s prices to find the deals that are worth paying attention to.

How do we return an Apple product?
