Black Friday Apple deals are here! Whether you’re trying to pick up the latest iPhone, a new Macbook, or upgrade an Apple Watch, there are a lot of deals at the ready. They vary from retailer to retailer, though, so don’t be afraid to shop around.
If you find a deal at one retailer but not at another, ask about price matching. “Check to see if they’re offering any kind of price match or guarantee for Black Friday,” advises Julie Ramhold, Consumer Analyst with DealNews.com.
While there is usually some hesitancy to upgrade, the past few years have marked something of a turning point in Apple products. While there are noteworthy changes in each successive generation, the core performance remains relatively the same. Considering that the M2 chip is beginning to see more widespread adoption, upgrading now means future-proofing your devices for several more years at least. It’s a good investment, and these discounts make it easier to buy.
If you aren’t worried about future-proofing and just want a great deal on still-worthwhile products, the 2020 and 2021 models of various Apple devices present a great value.

Does every store have Black Friday sales?
When is Black Friday?
Black Friday is on Friday, November 25. It’s the day after Thanksgiving and is historically a great time to get next-level deals on a range of must-have items.
Does Black Friday have deals on everything?
Not everything is on sale for Black Friday, but a lot is. You’ll see impressive discounts on items such as air fryers, TVs, vacuums, furniture, sneakers, clothes, electric toothbrushes, makeup and so much more. If there’s an item you’ve been waiting to go on sale, it’s most likely to be marked down during Black Friday season.
Will inflation impact Black Friday this year?
Last year consumers spent nearly $9 billion on Black Friday, just slightly less than the year before — proving that the economic volatility triggered by the pandemic most likely impacted spending habits. Experts say it’s unclear how inflation will affect Black Friday behavior this year, but they have their theories.
“According to our survey, 70% of shoppers are taking inflation into consideration this year,” confirms McGrath. That means people are not necessarily waiting for Black Friday itself to maximize savings, and instead “beginning their holiday shopping earlier than ever in an effort to spread out cash flow,” adds Gall.
To meet this demand, major retailers are already launching big ‘pre-sale’ events leading up to Black Friday. “Spreading out their shopping will help to prevent [consumers’] budgets from taking a hit all at once,” notes Ramhold. One possible caveat? “If starting prices are higher, then that means [potentially] higher deal prices when all is said and done.”
