The best early Black Friday deals on Apple devices

Ironically, if you’re looking for a great Apple deal this Black Friday season, don’t shop at Apple. That’s because Apple typically doesn’t offer discounts on its new products in-store or on its website, at least outside of the occasional educational discount. Fear not though, as there are plenty of reliable third-party retailers like Amazon, B&H Photo, and Best Buy that do.

In fact, these retailers have already started discounting some of the most popular Apple products ahead of Black Friday, cutting prices on everything from the latest MacBook Pro to the Apple Watch Series 7. Below we’ve got the best deals we’ve closed by category, and we’ll continue to update this piece as more deals are published.

If you want to save even more, check out our detailed guide to the best early Black Friday deals, where we highlight the best deals across all brands.

Apple Watch Series 7

The latest Apple Watch comes in a number of styles with GPS or LTE. As we noted in our review, it’s a great wearable. Unlike its predecessor, it has a larger screen, multiple timers, and faster charging. Other than a few iterative changes, though, it’s not drastically different from the Series 6.

Apple Watch Series 6 (40mm, GPS, red)

Apple’s last-gen wearable has an always-on display and new sensors that offer the ability to monitor your blood oxygen levels. We gave it a 9/10 in our review from last year, and while we liked the larger screen, faster charging and durability of the Apple Watch 7, we found there wasn’t much of a reason to upgrade otherwise.

Apple TV 4K Deals

Beginning November 26, you can get a $50 Apple Gift Card when you buy an Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD directly from Apple. Amazon is also discounting several configurations of the latest version at $10, for example, selling the 32GB 2021 Apple TV 4K for $170 instead of $179.
