It is a little over a week until all the actions of Black Friday, and now that some of the last ads have appeared, we know that this will be a rather significant saving event. With a host of new hardware announcements from last fall, we expect this to translate into significant discounts in Thanksgiving week for all the latest stuff from Cupertino. You will find our complete guide to the best Apple Black Friday deals below for 2021.
The new Apple hardware is titled Black Friday
After all the new fall launches of Apple products, this holiday shopping season will be dominated by discounts on the latest MacBook, iPad and Apple watches. Although we have already seen sporadic price cuts across the line, we expect all savings to be aligned by Black Friday.
At the forefront of all this will be the new M1 Pro and M1 Max MacBook Pro, which were just unveiled last month. We’ve already started to see discounts go live on recent releases, and we expect even deeper discounts next week. It will be there $ 100 or more savings across the line, depending on which model you opt for from vendors such as Amazon, Adorama and B&H. We should see that prices start from $ 1,899 and go up from there.
Those who do not need machines of more professional quality will also be able to get even bigger discounts within the M1 line. Expect to see $ 249 savings on the M1 MacBook Air, which will match the lowest we’ve seen on a portable machine, starting at $ 750. Most of these savings will likely carry over to the M1 MacBook Pro as well. And to complete the offer, Black Friday should also provide the best opportunity to buy a Mac mini for under $ 600.
Give your iPad big discounts
As for the iPad, the entire Apple barn has been refreshed during 2021, and Black Friday bids should lower them all. First and foremost, we have the M1 models, which will start in $ 700 while stocks allow on 11-inch models. It should be up to $ 249 savings across the line, which will also carry over to the 12.9-inch model.
Also expect some rare discounts on the new iPad mini 6, which will be reduced to $ 469 or lower. Given that we haven’t seen too many price cuts on the compact offering, this will be some of the last chance to save before everything sells out ahead of the holidays. And if you want to donate a new 10.2-inch home iPad, we expect to see prices starting from $ 299 from Amazon and other retailers are coming next week.
Apple Watch bandits will steal the show
On the front of the Apple Watch for this year, previous-generation models take center stage as various retailers want to clear stocks. Those who don’t mind the still supported Series 3 will be able to take one for $ 109 (Reg. $ 199) when you opt for the 38mm GPS model at Walmart. While it seems pretty likely that Amazon will respond, don’t expect this one to stay in stock for long.
As for the Apple Watch SE, those looking to donate an affordable wearable device will also be lucky. As Target first noticed, it looks like more retailers will take over $ 59 discount, delivering some of the best prices so far and certainly in years.
Even with those turning points in the Series 3 and SE, we still expect Black Friday 2021 to introduce some of the first real discounts on the Apple Watch Series 7. So far, we’ve only seen $ 30 discount current rates on higher class models. Come next week, we will probably see some of the initial styles that will be on sale.
Discounts for AirPods abound this Black Friday
Apple’s internal choice of headphones will also save money, with big savings in the current line. While there are currently no indications that we’ll see the new AirPods 3 go on sale, everything else will be available from next week.
For starters, AirPods Pro should be a hit $ 159 from the usual price of $ 249. This doorbuster is now worn by Walmart, but will likely be followed by Amazon and other retailers … at least while it’s still in stock. Those who want a refreshed MagSafe version will be able to lock a $ 189.99 price (reg. $ 249) at all major retailers.
Those hoping to finally get a significant discount on AirPods Max should also be lucky. From now on, we expect the leading headphones to be on sale $ 449 (Reg. $ 549). There’s a chance these prices could drop lower for selected colors, but don’t expect offers to last too long.
Save on official Apple accessories as well
In addition to all the most expensive items that will be on sale, the official Apple accessories will also join the savings. We expect to see 20% savings on many official accessories, from MagSafe chargers to holsters.
A full list of these discounts is unlikely to be available until all discounts have been announced, but as of now there are a few more significant offers to highlight. The Apple MagSafe Battery Pack will return to Amazon at a low level $ 80 (Reg. $ 99), indicating only the second discount we saw at the retailer. Also expect the iPhone 13 cases to go on sale for the first time, along with a deeper gap on previous iPhone 12 cases.
