Black Friday 2022 Apple deals: iPad, Apple Watch, AirPods, and more

Plenty of tech is on sale for Black Friday and Cyber Monday including Apple products. Below, we’ve compiled the best Black Friday deals on Apple devices that we could find, including laptops, iPads, Apple Watches, AirPods, and more. We’ll be keeping an eye out for iPhone deals as well, though we’ll likely see carrier discounts on Black Friday and not actual price cuts on hardware.

The best Black Friday iPad deals

It’s a great time to buy an iPad. The base iPad from 2021 with a Lightning connector is a good value for $269.99. The $100 discount that brings the 2021 iPad Mini with a USB-C connector down to $399.99 is good, too, even though that deal isn’t new. If you’re looking for a high-end option, the 2021 12.9-inch iPad Pro with the M1 processor and Mini LED screen has never been cheaper than it is now, costing $899.99 for the 256GB version.

$260

Apple’s latest entry-level iPad represents a slight update, with a new A13 Bionic chip and a 12MP front camera that supports Apple’s Center Stage feature.

Apple’s revamped iPad Mini ditches the home button and opts for a larger edge-to-edge display. It also comes outfitted with a faster processor, support for USB-C, and a top-mounted power button that moonlights as a Touch ID sensor.

Apple’s latest iPad Pro comes with the company’s own M1 processor and Thunderbolt. However, the 12.9-inch model also touts the best display of any tablet available.

The best Black Friday AirPods deals

The AirPods’ small size makes them a great stocking stuffer, even though they’re a bit on the pricey side for a stocking (unless your family puts way cooler stuff into theirs than mine did). The brand-new, second-gen AirPods Pro with noise cancellation have received a $50 discount, bringing them down to $199.99 at multiple retailers. If you don’t want to spend that much, the third-gen AirPods are discounted to $139.99, which is $30 off. That model lacks noise cancellation and silicone ear tips, but is otherwise similar to the Pros in design. Even cheaper are the second-gen AirPods, available for as low as $79 at Amazon. We’ve previously seen better deals floating around for the AirPods Max compared to what’s available now, but they’re $449 at most retailers, down from the $549 you’d pay if you shop at Apple.

Apple’s latest AirPods Pro take after the last-gen model but include swipe controls and a new H2 chip that allows for improved noise cancellation. They also come with a water-resistant charging case that offers support for Apple’s robust Find My network.

Apple’s AirPods Max feature exemplary build quality, sound phenomenal, and keep up with the best at noise cancellation.

The best Black Friday Apple Watch deals

The holidays are a great time to finally get the discount you’ve been waiting for on the latest Apple Watch models. Even the latest Apple Watch Series 8 is seeing price cuts of up to $50 off of its usual price. The 41mm-sized option with GPS capabilities is $349 while the larger 45mm model is $379.99 instead of $429. The 49mm Apple Watch Ultra is considerably more expensive at its original $799 cost, but even that’s $60 off for the holidays.

The latest smartwatch from Apple features watchOS 9 along with crash detection and temperature sensors that enable menstrual cycle tracking — something you won’t find on any other model.

The Watch Ultra is the most rugged and capable Apple Watch available. It has a thicker, bigger build than the Series 8, precise GPS tracking, and sensors that can measure metrics for diving. It only comes in one size and configuration, and it supports both GPS and LTE.

The best Apple TV deals

Apple recently released a new model of the Apple TV 4K that’s smaller, yet more powerful than the prior version. It’s the better option if you want the most features, including HDR10 Plus support, double the storage (64GB versus 32GB) and an included Siri Remote that has USB-C charging, but it’s only $5 off its normal $129 price. If you want a lower price without missing out on too many features, the last-gen Apple TV 4K with 32GB of storage is just $80 at Amazon, which is the lowest price we’ve ever seen. Plus, it has Ethernet, which the entry-level 2022 model lacks.

The last-gen Apple TV 4K houses the A12 Bionic processor and features faster performance with HDMI 2.1, Wi-Fi 6, and Thread support.

The best Black Friday MacBook deals

There are a lot of MacBook models out there, and the discounts we’re seeing for Black Friday are — so far — similar to what we’ve seen before. But there are still some savings to be found. The MacBook Air with the M1 processor, 256GB of storage, and 8GB of RAM is down to $799.99 ($200 off). The 2022 MacBook Air model, which brings several upgrades including a new design, a better webcam and display, MagSafe charging, and the M2 chip, is $1,049 instead of $1,199.

At Best Buy, you can get a solid deal on the 2021 14-inch MacBook Pro that’s packed with ports along with the M1 Pro processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD for $1,599 ($400 off). The bigger 16-inch 2021 model that has the M1 Pro with the same 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD, is $1,999 at Best Buy, $500 off its normal price.

$1049

The redesigned MacBook Air is a thin, lightweight device powered by Apple’s latest chip. The M2 model also touts a 1080p webcam and a better display than its predecessor, while retaining features like long battery life and MagSafe charging.

$1599

The 14-inch MacBook Pro is a stellar laptop in many ways, including a brilliant display, a great keyboard, fast specs, and several useful ports.

The new 16-inch MacBook Pro is a creative powerhouse equipped with Apple’s latest silicon. Configurable with either the M1 Pro or M1 Max, the 16-inch screen can be lent out to up to three external displays and a 4K TV simultaneously, thanks to its vast array of ports.

The Best Black Friday Apple accessory deals

The Apple Pencil (second-gen) is down to $89 at Walmart, a price that we’ve seen before, but remains a good deal. This stylus is compatible only with the most recent two iterations of the iPad Air, the latest iPad Mini, and iPad Pro models dating back to the 2018 redesign that brought the USB-C connector to Apple’s tablet lineup.

Apple’s AirTag trackers are a popular accessory for iPhone users, since you can slip one into a bag, luggage, or a pocket and track its location through the robust Find My network. Normally $29 per tracker, you can get now a four-pack for $79.98, which reduces the cost per tracker to about $20.

Apple’s AirTags are unobtrusive, waterproof, and tap into the massive Find My network for out-of-range locating.

Lastly, Best Buy and Amazon are offering a $15 gift card or promotion credit for their respective storefronts when you purchase a $100 Apple gift card. The Best Buy promotion is already live, but Amazon’s lasts between Black Friday and Cyber Monday (November 25th through the 28th).
