Last week was jam-packed with early Black Friday deals, and now that the shopping holiday is right around the corner, we're going back through all of the best sales you might have missed over the past week and updating as prices change and new deals arrive. As with all holiday shopping, there's no guarantee that better prices won't come around later in the season, but if you want to shop early, these are the best deals you will find online.

Specifically, in this article we're sharing all of the Apple products that currently have all-time low prices, or discounts that are at least very close to their record-low prices. Every deal shared below is available to purchase right now, and you can use the links below to jump directly to the section you're shopping for today.

For more Black Friday deals, particularly including current and upcoming sales from third-party accessory makers, check out our Black Friday Roundup.

HomePod mini and Apple TV

HomePod mini

yellow-homepod-candycanes.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $20 off HomePod mini
  • Where can I get it? Verizon
  • Where can I find the original deal? Right here


Verizon this week emerged with the first major HomePod mini discount of the holiday season, offering the smart speaker for $79.99, down from $99.99. As of Thanksgiving day, three colors are left at this price, so if you're interested be sure to snag the deal while stock remains. This is one of the best prices of the year and overall a second-best price.

Apple TV 4K (2021)

apple-tv-4k-blue-candycanes.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $99 off the 2021 Apple TV 4K
  • Where can I get it? Amazon
  • Where can I find the original deal? Right here


The closer we get to Black Friday, the better the deals on the previous-generation Apple TV 4K. On Amazon, you can get the 64GB 2021 Apple TV 4K for $99.99, which is an all-time low price. The retailer had the 32GB for just $79.99 earlier in the week, but that sale sold out and we aren't sure whether or not it will return.

AirPods

AirPods Pro 2 (2022)

airpods-pro-2-candycanes-blue.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $49 off the new AirPods Pro 2
  • Where can I get it? Amazon
  • Where can I find the original deal? Right here


Amazon is joining in on the AirPods Pro 2 discounts this season with the earbuds priced at $199.99. Although Woot's sale had the earbuds for $2 cheaper, it sold out quickly and isn't expected to come back soon, making Amazon's sale a great opportunity to get the accessory at nearly their all-time low price.

AirPods 2

airpods-2-candycanes-2.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $50 off the AirPods 2
  • Where can I get it? Amazon

This item is currently out of stock but will hopefully return later

AirPods 2 remain a solid entry-level option for most users, and at $79.00 on Amazon they're even easier to recommend. In total, this is the best price we've ever seen on this model.

AirPods Pro (2021)

airpods-pro-1-candycanes-blue.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $90 off the 2021 AirPods Pro
  • Where can I get it? Verizon
  • Where can I find the original deal? Right here


As stock dwindles on the previous-generation AirPods Pro, it's been rarer and rarer to see steep discounts. This week, however, Verizon has both stock and an all-time low price on the 2021 AirPods Pro at $159.99. Amazon is now also matching this deal.

iPad

10.2-Inch iPad (2021)

ipad-2021-candycanes-blue.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $59 off the 2021 iPad
  • Where can I get it? Amazon


The previous-generation iPad just hit its best-ever price at $269.99 for 64GB Wi-Fi models, and it's available in both Silver and Space Gray. If you don't need the latest model with all of the major design changes, this could be a great entry-level option for holiday gifting.

iPad mini 6

ipad-mini-candycanes-blue.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $99 off the iPad mini 6
  • Where can I get it? Amazon
  • Where can I find the original deal? Right here


Notable iPad discounts continue this week with the best price around on Apple's iPad mini 6, available for $399.99 (64GB Wi-Fi) in two colors on Amazon. That's $99 off, and you'll also find the same markdowns on the 256GB Wi-Fi models, and many cellular models as well.

12.9-Inch iPad Pro (2022)

12.9-inch-ipad-pro-candycanes-blue-2.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $100 off the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro
  • Where can I get it? Amazon


If you want a bigger display, there is also a nice discount on the 128GB Wi-Fi 12.9-inch iPad Pro on Amazon. It's priced at $999.00, down from $1,099.00. This is a new low price and one of the only 12.9-inch iPad Pro models from 2022 reaching as much as $100 off on Amazon.

Mac

MacBook Pro

14-inch-macbook-pro-candycanes-blue.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take up to $499 off the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro
  • Where can I get it? Amazon



Massive discounts continue to hit Apple's 2021 14-inch MacBook Pro lineup, with as much as $500 off these notebooks on Amazon. The retailer is also now offering 16-inch models at even steeper discounts of up to $499 for the lowest prices we've ever tracked on these models.

M1 MacBook Air (2020)

macbook-air-m1-candycanes-blue.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take up to $200 off the 2020 M1 MacBook Air
  • Where can I get it? Amazon
  • Where can I find the original deal? Right here


Apple's M1 MacBook Air is still being offered by the company as a cheaper alternative to the new M2 MacBook Air, and Amazon is sweetening the deal by dropping the price by $200 for Black Friday. The 256GB model is just $799.00 right now in all three colors.

M2 MacBook Air (2022)

m2-macbook-air-candycanes-blue.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $150 off the 2022 M2 MacBook Air
  • Where can I get it? Amazon


For the latest models of the MacBook Air, Amazon has $150 off the 256GB notebook, priced at $1,049.00. This is an all-time low price and it's available in all four colors.

27-Inch iMac (2020)

27-inch-imac-candycanes-blue.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $599 off the 2020 27-inch iMac
  • Where can I get it? Amazon


Apple's 27-inch iMacs are hard to recommend nowadays due to their inclusion of Intel chips instead of the new Apple silicon. However, if you're looking to find a Mac for basic day-to-day tasks and have no need for the latest models, there are quite steep discounts to be found this Black Friday on Amazon.

The 256GB 27-inch model is $1,199.99, down from $1,799.00, and the 512GB 27-inch model is $1,699.99, down from $2,299.00.

Apple Watch

Series 8

apple-watch-series-8-candycanes-blue.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $50 off the Apple Watch Series 8
  • Where can I get it? Amazon


Amazon has quite a few $50 discounts on the new Apple Watch Series 8, starting at $349.00 for 41mm GPS models and increasing to $379.00 for 45mm GPS models. For cellular devices, you'll find prices start at $449.00 for 41mm cellular models and increase to $479.00 for 45mm cellular models, which are also $50 markdowns.

SE (2022)

apple-watch-se-candycanes-blue.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take up to $40 off the Apple Watch SE
  • Where can I get it? Amazon


Similar to Series 8 devices, the new Apple Watch SE has savings across its lineup on Amazon. Prices start at $229.00 for 40mm GPS ($20 off) and raise to $239.00 for 44mm GPS ($39 off, a new all-time low). Cellular prices start at $279.00 for 40mm cellular and raise to $309.00 for 44mm cellular, which are both $20 discounts.

Ultra

apple-watch-ultra-candycanes-blue.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $60 off the Apple Watch Ultra
  • Where can I get it? Amazon
  • Where can I find the original deal? Right here


Black Friday deals are finally here for the Apple Watch Ultra, which has seen its first major sales this week. You can get numerous configurations for $739.00, which is $60 off and a new best-ever price.

Accessories

MagSafe Chargers

magsafe-candycanes-blue.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take 25% off the Apple MagSafe accessories
  • Where can I get it? Verizon


Verizon has been one of the only reliable sources of discounts on Apple's official MagSafe accessory line, and this fact remains true as we head into Black Friday. However, Amazon has recently jumped in on the sales and has the MagSafe Charger for $29.99, down from $39.00, and the MagSafe Duo Charger for $97.49, down from $129.00.

At Verizon, you can get the MagSafe Charger for $29.99, down from $39.00. The MagSafe Duo Charger is down to $96.74, from $129.00; and the MagSafe Battery Pack is down to $74.24, from $99.00.

AirTag

airtag-candycane-blue.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $19 off the AirTag 4-Pack
  • Where can I get it? Amazon



Apple's AirTag 4-Pack hit an all-time low price of $74.99 on Amazon yesterday, down from $99.00. The price has since risen to $79.99, which remains a very solid deal. Deals on any version of the AirTag have been very rare in 2022, making this a great time to buy the tracking accessory in early holiday shopping. You can also get a solo AirTag for $24.99, down from $29.00. The 1-pack was as low as $22.48 earlier, but the current price is still a good one.

Apple Pencil 2

apple-pencil-candycanes.jpg
  • What's the deal? Take $40 off the Apple Pencil 2
  • Where can I get it? Amazon


Amazon has the Apple Pencil 2 for $89.00 this Black Friday, down from $129.00. Compared to previous sales, this is an all-time low price on the accessory and as of now only Amazon has the deal.

iPhone

For iPhone deals, we're tracking numerous discounts across the major carriers, so for this section we'll break things up by carriers instead of by products. Just like the previous deals, all of these are available to purchase right now, so you don't have to wait until Black Friday to shop.

iphone-14-candycanes-blue.jpg

AT&T

AT&T is offering up to $800 off the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max with eligible trade-in and purchase on a qualifying installment agreement. You'll get up to $800 in bill credits with trade-in value of $130 or higher, and up to $350 in bill credits with trade-in value of $35 to $129.



For Apple Watch deals, if you buy an Apple Watch you'll get the new Apple Watch SE at no extra cost. Both must be purchased on qualifying installment plans and you'll have to add at least one new line, then you'll get up to $330 in bill credits towards the second eligible Apple Watch.

Verizon

Verizon has the iPhone 14 Pro at up to $1,000 off when you trade in your old smartphone on select Verizon Unlimited plans. You'll even get an extra $200 when you switch from a different carrier to Verizon.



If you're buying an iPhone at Verizon, you can get a combo deal with an iPad as well. The carrier has iPads for as low as $8 per month when buying a new line and 5G iPhone at the same time, and it's only available online.

A similar combo deal can be seen for the Apple Watch Series 8 as well. If you buy a select iPhone, you'll get the Series 8 for less than $6 per month. If you're okay with older iPhones, the iPhone 13 is just $5 per month when purchasing a new Verizon line.

Visible

Verizon-owned carrier Visible is offering gift cards worth up to $250 when purchasing select devices through the carrier. You can also get a pair of Beats Studio Buds when buying a new iPhone 14 or 14 Pro model.

Mint Mobile

Mint Mobile is offering three months of premium wireless service for free when you buy any three-month plan. Additionally, you can get six months of service for free when you buy a six-month plan and a new phone through the carrier.



We're keeping track of all of the season's best Apple-related deals in our Black Friday roundup, so be sure to check back throughout the month for an updated list of all the most notable discounts you'll find for Black Friday 2022.

Looking to replace my 2012 Mac mini with a 2020 M1 Mac mini or 2022 Mac Studio. Maybe I'll just wait for the 2 3 year transition to Apple Silicon to be complete. Crazy that they are still selling the 2018 Intel Mac mini.

These 'deals' are a JOKE!
Not true. The deals on new base-level products are quite good. Unfortunately they usually do not reach folks who need above base level. Yadmonkey was 100% accurate when he/she said: It's a marketing trick to drive up your desire for flagship or actually useful products. Plus they'll move some low-end inventory while they're at it.

The strategy makes huge sense with supply being so difficult recently. Sell more of high-yield lower-cost base level units and delay high end sales until after yields improve. I just hope that Apple does not make this SOP and always hold back the top product until late in the cycle.

The only reason these are considered "deals" is because people's sense of what "reasonable" is has become horribly skewed. $1500 on a laptop computer isn't a "deal", even if it is a shiny new Mac. The average Joe just wants a darn computer. They aren't interested in paying premium prices to have the little Apple icon on it. That means 500 bucks, a basic computer that works. The department stores are chock full of them. All the blather about whose chips are in it is just that... blather. You know how many people are happily just plugging along on 10 year old Win 7 machines, and Macbook Pro machines with Lion or Sierra on them?

Those interested in a $500 machine can buy a $500 machine no problem.

Some like paying a premium to get a premium device, especially with the M series. So if premium devices go on sale, and one is already intending on purchasing it because a $500 or $1000 computer won’t cut it for their needs, then even saving a few hundred is a great deal. It’ll pay for AppleCare, software they need, accessories, etc.

My 2012 27” iMac is still going strong (with updated ram and ssd) 10 years later. I surely can’t say that about my sister’s laptop that was purchased the year after for a few hundred, it’s unusable now. Paying a premium can pay off in the longterm, especially with the expected longevity of the M series devices

You're looking at it wrong though.

How much was your 2012 27" iMac at the time, $2000? And how much did you spend on upgrading RAM and SSD, another $200-$400?

Someone could have bought (or better yet built themselves) a really nice desktop PC every 3.5 years with a $700-$750 budget and they'd be where you're at cost-wise (even after factoring in price for a nice 27" monitor), but that Windows PC today would be a heck of a lot faster than what you have (2.9GHz quad-core Intel Core i5? 3.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i5?). GPU would be a lot better too.

Anything for the Mac Studio?
Not that I've seen from Apple or B&H so far. Costco had discounts of $200 and up, depending on model, about a month ago. Unless Costco does another discount for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, I'm probably going to get a refurb from Apple.

GPU would be a lot better too.

But he is also looking at it the right way as well.

For example, in 2011, I bought my mid-2011 13" MBA (Core i5, 256GB) for $1600 after taxes. Seeing that it is still running solidly - and that is without any upgrading or repairs - if I calculate the per month cost for that Mac, I'm looking at:

11 years * 12 months = 132 months + 5 months (I bought it in June) = 137 months.

$1600 / 137 months = $11.67/month for the total monthly cost of my Mac.

If I took that PC into account at $750 total cost, that 3.5 months gets me:

3 years * 12 months = 36 months + 6 months (half a year) = 42 months.

$750 / 42 = $17.85/month.

But seeing that is only 3.5 years, I'd have to buy a new one every 3.5 years. I'm looking at buying at least 3 of these to barely make the 11 years I've had the MBA. That's $2250 total.

That isn't looking at anything wrong, that is future proofing and showing how durable and long lasting Apple's offerings are compared to a PC, and that upgrading every 2 - 3 years may not net the best value.

Costco has their Black Friday scans out already.


Page 26 is what you're looking for. All they have for it is a QR code or a keyword to search for on their website. Better to wait until Thanksgiving Day to search for it. I don't know if Mac Studio will be in it though.

The Beats Fit Pro have been out for a year and I still haven't seen them discounted.

I have a friend who has been waiting for a Black Friday deal on an M1 Pro MacBook Pro 14 with 32 GB of RAM - is there a great deal to be had on these models?
