Apple Black Friday Deals – What to expect and deals live now

Best Apple Deals: Looking for a great deal on an iPhone XR or a MacBook Pro? Check out our round-up of the best Apple deals this Black Friday?

Apple Black Friday 2018

As one of the biggest and most iconic tech companies in the world, demand for Apple products is almost always a sure thing. If there’s one thing that Apple fans have come to expect however (aside from a missing headphone jack), it’s an ever-growing price tag on the company’s most popular products.

Just take a look at the recently updated iPhone range. Buying a brand new iPhone XS will set you back an eye-watering £999, while the larger iPhone XS Max requires an extra £100 for its cheapest version. Unless you’ve just won big on a game of Monopoly, buying a SIM-free iPhone is almost unheard of these days.

Black Friday presents one of the best opportunities all year for consumers to get a sizeable discount across all of Apple’s products. One device that we believe will be in store for a huge price drop is the iPhone X. Due to its short time on the market, there were very few deals this time last year for the iPhone X, but now that the phone has been usurped by three newer devices, we’re sure to see it go for a steal.

Last year’s Black Friday brought about some cracking deals in the iPad and MacBook department, with the Apple iPad 9.7 going for as little as £264 at Currys PC World (with trade-in). In a similar case to the iPhone X however, newer versions of the MacBook and iPad Pro will drive the price of the previous models down even further – meaning that Black Friday 2018 should be one of the best chance to pick these devices up, cheaper than they’ve ever been.

Apple Watch has also been a popular sale item. We would keep an eye on John Lewis in particular, as the retailer has slashed Apple Watch prices in the past, selling the latest model for as low as £250. We’re hoping to see the new Series 4 for a major discount for Apple Black Friday 2018. There hasn’t been a refreshed Apple AirPods model as many expected, but that does mean the older model is more likely to have a saving. We’ve regularly seen the AirPods for around £130, so anything south of this will be a great deal.
