The best Black Friday deals on Apple devices and accessories as of Oct. 13:
Historically, Apple is a brand that does not love offering a ton of sales, at least, not through their own website and stores. Even with the fanfare of Black Friday, you don’t get the same major price cuts you’d expect from other retailers during the holiday.
So what does this mean for the person on the hunt for a new iPad or MacBook? Are you destined to pay full price forever? Dear reader, absolutely not. Apple deals are out there for the taking all across the internet year-round, but especially once we enter Black Friday season.

Though you likely need absolutely no reminder, we continue to live in unprecedented times, meaning those Black Friday deals are already emerging. So, we’ve started rounding up the best of the best for you. In addition to this being a prime opportunity to knock some early shopping out of the way, supply chain shortages are definitely going to be a thing this holiday season, so early shopping on popular items (like that MacBook you’ve been eying) is the best way to make sure there is a gift to give come December.
So whether you’ve got your eye on the iPhone 13, continue to wait with bated breath for an AirPods announcement, or are hoping these new releases mean discounted older models, we’ll be updating you constantly on all the best Black Friday Apple finds from Amazon to Walmart to Best Buy and wherever else is offering savings worth hearing about.

Finding a deal on a new iPhone that doesn’t involve trading in an iPhone is difficult to say the least. And if you’re upgrading from an older model, chances are the savings won’t be as great as a trade-in deal paints them out to be. That’s why we’re fans of this iPhone 12 Mini deal at AT&T, which requires no trade-in for a 50% savings on this phone.

Last Thanksgiving, we saw the AirPods Pro go all the way down to a mere $169 (their biggest-ever discount). And this year, though we’re only in early October, we’ve already seen them get close to that ultra low price. Even at $197.00, you’re still saving $50 on one of the best pairs of Bluetooth earbuds out there.

If you’ve never been able to wrap your head around Apple’s prices, buying pre-owned might be for you. Though this laptop isn’t Apple certified, it has been professionally inspected by Amazon-qualified suppliers and will not show visible imperfections when held at an arm’s length. This MacBook Pro is still a relatively recent model with a good amount of storage, and all the old ports (unlike newer MacBooks) so no adapters will be necessary for basic USB and HDMI wires or SD cards.
