Apple is not famous for its sales — at least not through its own website and stores. Luckily, several other retailers have no problem marking down Apple products.

Several of those retailers Black Friday deals are here, including Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart.

Black Friday is already here as far as all the big retailers are concerned

Basically, that means that the good Apple deals we find year-round are even better at the moment. Case in point: the M1 MacBook Air is back down to $800 for the second time this shopping season, several Apple Watches are back down to their all-time low prices, and the new iPad Pro just hit $100 off.

If you don’t see your wishlist items on sale, don’t worry. We’ll be updating this post constantly leading up to Black Friday’s official start on Nov. 25 and through Cyber Monday. Until then, you can take a look at the best deals that are already live below.

Please note: All newly added deals have been marked with a ✨. Anything with a strikeout was either sold out or no longer available at the sale price as of this writing, and anything marked with a 🔥 has dropped to an all-time low price. Check back often — we’re updating this page constantly.

Mac and MacBook deals

Why we like it

Check out our full review of the M2 MacBook Air.

The 2022 MacBook Air comes at a slightly higher starting price than its 2020 counterpart, but for a few good reasons. One, it underwent a total redesign that gives it a more Pro-like look, while still maintaining the thin look the Air is known for. The keyboard is miles better than the Butterfly monstrosity, and you also get a full-sized function role. We wish its 60Hz refresh rate offered a little more, but the M2 chip gives top-of-the-line performance. And that slightly larger 13.6-inch screen and 1080p webcam make a difference. (If you’re looking for more built-in storage space, the 512GB model is also at its lowest price ever(opens in a new tab).)

2020 MacBook Air

iPad deals

Why we like it

Check out our full review of the 2021 iPad Mini.

Even with the release of iPadOS 16, let’s be real — no one is really using their iPad as a complete laptop replacement. When it comes down to it, most people want a tablet to be portable, to stream shows and videos easily, maybe run some creative work, and not run out of battery quickly. The iPad Mini checks pretty much most of those boxes. For casual use, the battery does well, but the A15 Bionic chip brings the speed (you don’t need an M1 or M2 chip to play games and watch YouTube). The 8.3-inch display is compact without being way too small, the USB-C charging port adds a level of convenience the iPhone would be well suited to follow, and the stereo speakers sound great. All these factors together make it clear why this tablet is a Mashable Choice pick.

Apple Watch deals

Why we like it

If you want to grab the latest Apple Watch with a 45mm band you’ll be paying at least $379 — and that’s if you catch it at its lowest price ever. Opting instead for last year’s Series 7 still gets a large, bright, always-on, crack-resistant display. In terms of fitness features, you get blood oxygen and ECG sensors, as well as a heart rate monitor. You won’t get the crash detection and temperature sensors of the Series 8, but if those weren’t must-have features for you anyway, saving at least $70 and going for the Series 7 is the move.

AirPods deals

Why we like them

Check out our full review of the AirPods Pro.

The biggest con of Apple’s noise-canceling earbuds was their price. But with a new generation out and Black Friday sales beginning, the first-gen AirPods Pro are back down to their lowest price ever at $159. With a case that gives up to 24 hours of battery life and some of the best active noise cancellation in the game, this price is hard to pass up.

Why we like them

Read our full review of the Beats Studio Buds.

If you’re interested in the idea of the ANC of the AirPods Pros but less interested in their price tag, the Beats Studio Buds offer a worthy alternative. The ANC might not quite match up to the Pros standard, but with 8 hours of battery life per charge (that’s longer than the second-gen Pros) and impressive bass for buds, you might just find them worth the trade-off. Plus, you get more color options.
