Black Friday has offered many great Apple deals so far, and we've got high hopes for the coming Apple Cyber Monday deals too. We've seen great deals on many of Apple's products, including new devices released only a few weeks ago, such as the 2022 iPad Pro and 2022 AirPods. 

There has been a multitude of new products from Apple this year that includes three new Apple Watch models, a new generation of AirPods Pros, MacBooks and several new installations in the iPad range. With the release of so many new devices, we usually expect to see some good savings on older models during retail events like Black Friday but this year we're already seeing some great Apple deals on newer technology.

Apple has a gift card event this weekend (opens in new tab), some purchases offer gift cards to spend on later purchases. Check each offer when you select a product.

With so many retailers pushing Apple Black Friday deals, it can be hard to pin-point the best discounts and what is actually a good deal. You have to be careful during these big retail events that sellers haven't increased the RRP to make it seem like a discount. That's where we come in: we're going to be tracking the best Apple Black Friday deals as they come and go across both the US and UK whilst directly linking you to them to make sure you're getting a real deal.

Below you'll find quick links to the retailers that are offering the best Apple Black Friday deals now, and then we'll be detailing stand-out specific deals on Apple's main product lines, including iPads, MacBooks, Apple Watch and AirPods, first for the US and then the UK. If you're not sure what iPad or MacBook you want, see our iPad generations and MacBook Black Friday articles for help.

Apple Black Friday 2022: when is it?

Black Friday is the Friday immediately after Thanksgiving, which means in 2022, the Apple Black Friday sale kicked off on 25 November. Cyber Monday comes hot on its heels on 28 November. That said, every year we see retailers start their Black Friday sales early.

How to get the best Apple Black Friday deals

If you're dreaming of getting a vast discount on that brand new 16-inch MacBook Pro, forget about it. Huge Apple Black Friday discounts never really happen; Apple kit tends to hold its value and serious savings aren't a thing that ever crop up, but if you're happy to pay a little less than full price for some new Apple gear, Black Friday's your best opportunity. And frankly even a small saving on a MacBook or iPad is worth grabbing.

The Apple Store isn't the place to get Apple Black Friday deals. Instead you should decide what hardware you're after and how much you want to pay for it, then check out some third-party retailers. Amazon, Currys and B&H Photo offered some of the biggest discounts in 2021, which included dropping the price of the all-new 2021 MacBook Pro by 5 per cent. 

For the best deals without having to trawl through retailers, stick with us. We'll be providing direct links to all of the best Apple Black Friday deals for 2022 right here as they arrive. 

Does Apple have Black Friday sales?

In short: no. While Apple's happy to let third-party retailers discount its gear, you won't find any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals at the Apple Store. Instead, it rewards shoppers with Apple Black Friday gift cards (opens in new tab) that you can redeem against later purchases.

You can get Apple Black Friday gift cards worth up to $250 / £250, but to get that you have to buy a MacBook. Not such a great deal, when we're seeing some direct savings as big as that. However, the gift card offer can work out in your favour with some purchases – if you know you're definitely going to want to buy another Apple product.
