The best Apple Black Friday deals: find early offers in the 2021 UK sale here
As a trillion-dollar tech behemoth, Apple does not need to follow the crowd during Black Friday, when competitors rush to cut prices and capitalise on the yearly global sales event. Apple customers get pretty excited about buying iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, AirPods and Apple TV regardless of the cost.
This year, the buzz around the newly-released iPhone 13 Pro, Mini and Pro Max is not expected to die down for quite some time, so there is little reason for retailers to reduce prices on those.
Thankfully, Apple doesn’t forgo Black Friday and Cyber Monday completely. Even though Black Friday itself isn’t unil November 26, third-party retailers like Carphone Warehouse, Amazon and Currys have got in early this year and are already releasing Black Friday deals. They have some amazing Apple products included, so it’s still a great time to buy the new iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch you’ve had your eye on.
Currys have included a handful of Apple products in their early Black Friday sales, including the iPhone 12 Max Pro. With a huge 6.7″ screen and super-fast 5G connectivity, it makes streaming video better than ever. It also takes amazingly high-quality photos thanks to its powerful triple camera system with an ultra wide lens. If you have a tendency to drop your phone, this is the model for you – it has a scratch-resistant ‘Ceramic Shield’ screen that’s tougher than any other smartphone on the market.
Amazon’s early Black Friday deals are also well worth a look. They currently have £60 off the Apple Watch series 6, which has both GPS and cellular connectivity (so you can take calls, text and get directions from your wrist without your phone). It also has incredibly in-depth health features, with a next-gen ECG and blood oxygen monitor, along with comprehensive fitness tracking.
The ultra-powerful iPad Pro is discounted at Currys with £95 off. This is a tablet so high-performing it could replace your laptop; it uses Apple’s iPad OS, has a powerful A12Z Bionic chip and a whopping 512GB of storage. Added to that is an edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display that makes streaming video better than ever.
Also discounted is the iPhone 12 Pro, which boasts the same Super Retina XDR display as the 12 Pro Max but on a slightly smaller 6.1″ screen. It has similarly great performance – Apple’s A14 Bionic chip is 50% faster than any other smartphone chip, and it takes crystal-clear photos thanks to the ultra-wide and wide dual cameras with Night mode, which can capture deep colour and excellent detail even in very low light.
Very also have some excellent Apple deals in their early Black Friday sale, including this 2020 Macbook Air. This model has had a huge jump up in performance and processing compared to its predecessor, thanks to the powerful AppleM1 chip now used in Macbook Air. It also has longer than ever batter life (up to 18 hours) which makes it the perfect partner for studying or working on the go.
