You’ve had it earmarked in your diary all year and now Black Friday is finally here.
For those of you that may be unfamiliar with the shopping event, let us give you a quick run-down. From Black Friday to Cyber Monday, there’s discounts across just about every product imaginable and even holidays, making a 2022 getaway even more enticing.
One such category that is heavily painted with the discount brush is tech and there are few brands as instantly recognised around the world as Apple.
The brand rarely directly reduces its offering of iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple Watches and more but retailers everywhere makeup for it by seriously slashing the prices. In particular, there’s really no better time to invest in AirPods and these headphones are typically some of the most sought after items during the weekend sales extravaganza.
When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year?
The date in which the Black Friday event takes place changes every year. This is not designed to be confusing but instead because it is always the day after Thanksgiving that occurs on the fourth Thursday of November.
For 2021, Black Friday is on November 26 and Cyber Monday follows suit on November 29.
What Apple deals can I expect?
The tech giant has only just launched the iPhone 13 and brand new iterations of their cult watch and tablets so don’t expect for theses models to be in the sale. Yet you will still be able to source its range of iPhones, iPads, AirPods, MacBooks, Watches and more at a fraction of the original cost.
There’s truly no better time to upgrade your dated tech. Whether the battery life just isn’t what it used to be or you want to take advantage of the souped up camera megapixels, you’ll be able to find the devices for less thanks to our favourite retailers.
Take the opportunity to invest in your home office set-up, elevate your gaming situation, tell the time or block out unwanted background noise as you enjoy your favourite tunes or podcast.
Where to shop Black Friday Apple deals
As we explained above, you are not likely to find deals directly at Apple. The brand tends to offer a voucher with a purchase - but at all the retailers; Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, Currys, Very to name but a few, there’s some serious savings to be made.
