Shoppers are always desperate to get their hands on some Apple products during the Black Friday sales.
With the recent release of four new iPhone 12 models, many people are wondering if older Apple devices will be discounted this year.
And it’s not just about iPhones as other Apple products, such as Macbooks, iPads, Apple Watch, and AirPods are all set to have their prices slashed under third-party retailers.
Since Apple itself doesn’t hold any Black Friday sales, those are the online retailers to visit on Black Friday 2020, which falls on 27 November this year with deals often carrying on until Cyber Monday.
Whether you’re looking to treat yourself after a tough year, or you’re searching for a Christmas present for a loved one, you will be able to make the most of the sales.
Retailers have even started their offers early, and prices will only continue to drop - but be fast, as Apple products always go fast.
It may be especially difficult to grab a bargain before they sell out this year, as shoppers will flock online due to many shops in Scotland and the rest of the UK being closed under new Level 4 restrictions in the run-up to Christmas.
Here’s where you will find an unbeatable Apple deal this year.
Amazon is always a frontrunner in the Black Friday sales, and this year they’re staging an online Black Friday week which started on 20 November and will run until Cyber Monday, 30 November.
While Amazon is known for slashing prices on its own products, such as its popular Amazon Echos, they have already started to reduce prices on Apple items.
Their best deal is on Apple Watch Series 5, which has a huge saving.
The watch, which has GPS and comes in a few colours, was £499, but Amazon have reduced the price by over £100 to £386.10.
This 23 percent discount for an Apple product is almost unheard of - so they are sure to be snapped up fast.
And that’s not all as Amazon has a sale on the new Apple iPad Pro.
It was £1,069 and is now £990.20, which is a 7% discount. It may seem like a small saving, but Apple never holds sales so now would be the time to purchase.
JD Williams sells just about everything you could need, and it has a large technology section.
The retailer has already started its Black Friday Build Up, with a sale spanning across every category of the website.
JD Williams has a fantastic deal on the iPhone 11, the last-generation model before the iPhone 12 was released in October 2020.
The 256GB smartphone has been reduced from £969 to £749, a saving of over £200.
This is a huge saving on an iPhone which has a dual-camera system, all-day battery life and a Liquid Retina display.
JD Williams have also discounted the Apple Watch Series 5, which was £489 and is now £429.
It’s not as big a saving as Amazon, but it may be worth keeping an eye on in case the price drops even further.
They are also discounting the Apple Watch Series 3, from £309 to £199, and AirPods 2nd Gen have a £20 saving down from £159.
Currys PC World
Currys PC World’s Black Friday sales have also started, and shoppers will be pleased to know it has discounted one of the new MacBook Pro laptops.
Fans of Apple products are sure to get excited over this deal, since Macs are notoriously pricey and hardly ever on sale.
The 13-inch model, which comes with a touch bar, has been discounted by £130 already, down to £1369. This price could be reduced even further on Black Friday itself.
Currys PC World are also offering a slight discount on the light and portable Apple Macbook Air Core, which was £999 and is now £920, saving you £70.
AirPods have become a cult Apple product thanks to their wireless, sleek appearance and high sound quality.
Very has already slashed prices on the 2019 AirPods model, which were £159 and are now priced at £124.99.
It’s a modest saving of £34, but this price may come down even further in the lead-up to Black Friday - as long as they don’t sell out.
These would make a fantastic Christmas present for all ages.
Very also have an early discount on the newest MacBook air model. It was £1,399 and is now retailing for £1,249, a saving of over £100.
And if you’re looking for an Apple Watch Series 3, Very is selling one for just £199, down from £279.
You can always rely on John Lewis for a bargain Black Friday discount, and the way things are going, the retailer will not disappoint this year.
John Lewis has a huge Apple selection, and while it hardly ever puts the products on sale, there are already discounts on the iPad Pro.
The 2018 model is on sale for almost £200 less than its RRP, selling for £729 down from £919 - and because it has already been reduced four times, this price might drop further.
