Welcome to our Apple Cyber Monday deals live blog. Over the last few days, we've seen some incredible deals on Apple products across the web, and even though Cyber Monday is now over, there are still some bargains to be had. We've now stopped updating the blog with live updates, as new offers aren't being introduced any more, but you can see all the best apple deals right now in our Apple deals hub.

2022 has been a big year for Apple products, with releases featuring AirPods, a new range of the iPad line, new MacBooks and the long-awaited release of the Apple Watch 8. During big retail events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we usually see some great deals on older models, but we were pleasantly surprised this year to see some fantastic savings on the brand-new products released only a few months ago.

This live feed has showcased the very best Apple deals over Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend, so please browse through it as some of those are still available. If you're looking specifically for a tablet or laptop, check out the Cyber Monday iPad deals live blog and MacBook Cyber Monday deals live blog from this weekend, as they too contain some offers that are still active.

Kicking our Apple live blog off this evening is an epic AirPods deal. Over on Amazon US, the AirPods Pro 2 have a huge $49 off, taking them down to $199. Incase you're wondering, this is the latest AirPods model from Apple, released just a few months back in September. 

Bizarrely, this means the all-new AirPods Pro are cheaper than their predecessors right now, but, hey, we're not complaining. This deal surfaced on Amazon briefly last week, and sold out super-fast. It's back again, but who knows for how long so if you want a pair, don't delay. 

There's also a deal on the same model in the UK, but it's not quite as good (sorry UK folk). The 2022 AirPods Pro at Amazon UK have £20 off, now £229. Not a bad offer at all, especially if you were going to buy a pair anyway.

If you're on the hunt for an iPad in the UK, Amazon has a great deal on Apple's entry-level model. Usually from £369, the 2021 iPad (9th gen) is currently £309.98 on Amazon – that's just under £60 off.

This isn't the lowest we've seen this model (with WiFi and 64GB storage), it went down to £298 back in August, but it's not far off. The 9th gen iPad was superseded by a new, more powerful 10th gen version last month, but the fact that Apple has kept this around shows just what a brilliant little machine it is for everyday use.

The iPad 2022 was released just last month, and, having reviewed it, we can confidently say it is worth every penny of the retail price. So the fact that you can get the all-new 10th gen iPad 2022 with $50 off at B&H Photo, taking the price down to $419, is a very special treat indeed.

Apple Watch 7

The Apple Watch 7 is only just over a year old, and yet you can get it right now at Currys for just £309 – saving £50 on the retail price. This particular model is 41mm in size, and available in either midnight blue and khaki green aluminium, with respective sports band. It might not be the shiny new Apple Watch 8, but it has a load of the same features for a lot less (and looks almost identical too!). 

MacBook Air Black Friday

When it comes to MacBooks, the M1 MacBook Air M1, 2020 is a firm favourite over here at Creative Bloq. A few of us are lucky enough to own one, and trust when we say they are brilliant machines. Powerful, super-portable and the most affordable Apple laptop, we highly recommend it, especially right now as it's got a huge £122 off at Very, taking the price down to £877. That's just £2 more than the lowest price we've ever seen this model in the UK. 

Over in the US, the same MacBook Air model has $150 off at B&H Photo, dropping the price to $847, which is even better. It's not the cheapest we've seen it, earlier in the year it fell to $799, but we've yet to see that deal surface since.

Adorama has $349.01 off an early 2020 iPad Pro 11 with 1TB storage, now $949.99. We don't normally see discounts that big on iPad Pros, and 2020 isn't so long ago, but the iPad Pros got quite an upgrade with the introduction of the Apple's own silicon, and this powered by the A12Z Bionic chip from prior to that upgrade. 

If you need the performance of a Pro, we'd recommend paying a little extra for the newer M1 or M2-chipped tablets – with some exceptions. If storage capacity is a big priority for you, for example, depending on what you need can make a huge difference to the cost. The 1TB configuration of the latest iPad Pro 11 costs $1,499, so that's a massive difference in price.

For anyone looking for a neat solution to keep track of their Apple gear – or anything else for that matter, Black Friday Apple deals are a good opportunity to stock up on AirTags. 

If you're not familiar with how they work, Apple AirTags are discreet little devices that you can attach to anything that you have a tendency to lose (keys being the most obvious choice!). You can then find the item if you lose it using the Find My app on an iPhone or iPad and even make the AirTag play a sound to help you locate your missing possessions.

There are discounts packs of 4 in the US and UK.

Black Friday Apple Watch Ultra deal

Here are the best Black Friday Apple Watch deals that we've seen so far – including a deal on the Apple Watch Ultra (pictured above). We've not listed all the configurations – most of these are the prices for the GPS configuration in the smaller of the two sizes, but many of them have similarly sized discounts on other configurations too – just click through and check the configuration and colour that you want.

This Apple headphone deal has been around for a while, and it's really, really good. Right now you can get the over-ear can from Apple for a decent $449, down from $549, saving you $100

There are big Apple Black Friday savings on MacBooks too – or Cyber Monday savings, it depends not on what time zone you're in but on what retailer you're at. Amazon US is wishing the year away, moving on to Cyber Monday already. 

Are its Cyber Monday Apple deals better than its Black Friday Apple deals? Nope, they're exactly the same. But that's no bad thing when you can save $500 on the M1 Pro MacBook Pro 16 (pictured) or pick up the 2020 M1 MacBook Air for just $799.

We don't often see Apple Black Friday or Apple Cyber Monday deals on iPhones, but here's a decent offer from Verizon. You can save up to $1,000 by trading in an old device on select unlimited plans and get $200.

You can also pick up a free Apple Watch SE (2nd generation), a free Apple iPad (9th generation, 64GB) and (in a roundabout way) free Beats Fit Pro if you opt for the iPhone 14 Pro with a 5G plan.

Up to $1,000 off iPhone 14 Pro with trade-in at Verizon + free Apple Watch SE / free iPad

Apple Black Friday iMac deal

I mentioned the strength of this year's Apple Black Friday and Cyber Monday MacBook deals a little earlier, but what about if you want a desktop computer. Well, there are some nice Black Friday iMac deals that might be tempting for anyone that wants an all-in-one desktop. 

In the US, you can get 10% off a 2021 24-inch M1 iMac, reduced $1,499 to $1,349.99 at Amazon. 

In the UK, there's a slightly bigger saving. Amazon has the 2021 24-inch iMac in silver for £1,649 $1,469, with similar savings in different colours, but stock is VERY LOW in some colours.

We'll take a break now, but we'll be back in a few hours to continue searching for the best Apple Black Friday and Apple Cyber Monday deals. In the meantime, you've got links above to the retailers with the best deals, and you'll find our favourite deals so far in the previous posts below.

MacBook Air 2020

Good morning Apple obsessives, and happy Sunday. With Black Friday behind us, Apple Cyber Monday is almost upon us, so I guess we're in a sort of dream-like netherland where, frankly, anything could happen. 

We have to kick things off with this ever-so-cheap MacBook Air M1 2020 deal, which brings the price of a new 256GB model down to a record-low of $799 at Amazon. This, to our mind, is still the standout MacBook deal to grab (we love the 2020 model). But if you'd like to shave a tad more off the price, Amazon also has a refurbished M1 Air up for grabs, and it's even lower – now just $669.99 reduced from $739.99 (but with less storage – it's the 128GB version). A refurbished model is a good shout if you enjoy saving money without compromising on quality. And who doesn't?

In the UK, that same MacBook is at a gloriously low price of £829 at Amazon for the gold version – another record-buster, and this one is not refurbished. Enjoy!

Apple Pencil 2 on sale

We have been delighted to report that the Apple Pencil 2 has had a discount this weekend, bringing it down to equal its lowest-ever price of $89 at Amazon (only seen once before – full price $129). This is a real bargain for the (we think) best stylus the market has to offer – discounts don't come around too often on it.

IN the UK? Yep, you get a discount too, but not quite as tasty. Amazon has the 2nd-gen Apple Pencil 2 with a small 14 per cent saving, now £139 £119. Given the lowest we've spotted this stylus for is £99, this is not a standout deal. But, it is lower than at Apple itself so if you were buying one anyway, why not take the saving?

The amazing Apple deals just keep coming this year. This time it's on the all-new MacBook Air (M2, 2022). Released in June this year, this powerhouse of a machine is a firm favourite here at CB, and right now you can get $130 off Apple's latest super-thin laptop over at B&H Photo – now $1,269

To buy this model, which features an 8-core chip and 8-core GPU and 16GB memory, directly from Apple would cost $1,399, so this deal will be hard to beat this Black Friday and Cyber Monday

iPad 2021 10.2 inch

(Image credit: Apple)

Just last month, Apple released a new iPad, and it's new feature and power set meant quite a jump in price from its usual entry-level iPad. Aware some might not need the extras or be able to afford them, Apple has kept the 9th gen iPad in its line up, which is testament to what a great tablet it really is for families and every day use. 

The arrival of the new model has meant the 9th gen seeing some great offers, but this one from Amazon is the best so far. With just under £60 off, you can get the 2021 iPad (9th gen) for £309.98 on Amazon. An unmissable offer.  

AirPods Pro 2

They were only released in September, but Apple's incredible AirPods Pro 2 are already on sale at Amazon, down from £249 to £229. They might look the same as the previous model on the outside, but it's what's on the inside that counts – and with improved noise cancellation and sound quality, these are a serious upgrade.

iPad Air prices: the best around

(Image credit: Apple)

One of the best deals we've seen this weekend is £100 off the brand new iPad Air 5 – and it's still going strong, with the price down to £569 at Amazon. With Apple Pencil 2 support and the M1 chip, this is practically a rival for the iPad Pro – and the deal probably won't hang around much longer.

If it's a MacBook you're after, one of the best options out there is the 2021 MacBook Pro – a machine we almost declared too good to be true. And right now this super-powerful, M1-equipped laptop is £174 off at Amazon UK, down to just £1,725.

Apple Pencil deals are extremely rare, but right now the Apple Pencil 2 is currently sitting at the lowest price it's ever been at $89. And in the UK, buyers can head over to Amazon to get 14% off.

Best Apple Watch SE deals

This has to be one of the cheapest Apple Watch deals we've ever seen. Right now, the Apple Watch SE is down from £239 to £219 – meaning, for the first time, you can grab an Apple Watch for just over £200. Bargain!

That 10th generation iPad deal is still live in the US at B&H – but stock is apparently very low. The price is currently $419, down from $449.

In the US, B&H still has $30 off the 10th generation iPad, bringing the price down to $419. But you'd better be quick, the all-important 'Low Stock' warning is up!
