Black Friday 2018: Best Apple deals and discounts

Retailers to offer savings on the Apple Watch, HomePod, and more

Like GearBrain on Facebook

Apple doesn't usually offer much in the way of deals on Black Friday, but that doesn't mean you can't save money on its products - you just have to look elsewhere.

Last year, Apple offered a range of free gift cards with purchases made over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend. But retailers like Walmart, Target and Best Buy did a much better job, and we expect it to be a similar story in 2018.

More Black Friday 2018 deals:

Apple finally dropped its deals, and there are others at retailers as well all live now that Black Friday is here, November 23.

We will be adding new deals to this article as they become available between now, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
