Apple Black Friday 2022 deals: when and what to expect

Black Friday 2022 is the biggest shopping event of the year, and in just a few months you’ll be able to get all your favorite tech at a discount, including TVs, laptops, and games, but more importantly again, Apple devices.

Although it started out as a one-day price-cutting event in the United States, Black Friday has since morphed into a weekend-long discount night. These days it lasts even longer, with some retailers starting the festivities even earlier, dropping deals in early November. Soon we will call it Black November.

While Apple rarely participates in big-ticket events, with deals on iPhones, iPads, AirPods and Apple Watches impossible to find at the company itself, third-party retailers often shrink the portfolio of Apple products throughout Black Friday.

Last year, we saw Three offer great deals on Apple’s iPhone 13 pro and iPhone 13 pro max; there were deals to be found on the Apple Watch Series 7 at Currys; price cuts could be spotted on AirPods pro at John Lewis; plus savings on the 2021 iPad pro and 2021 MacBook pro. Expect Black Friday 2022 to feature so many deals on Apple‘s latest gadgets.

Ahead of November’s shopping event, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about Black Friday 2022, the products we plan to go on sale, and the types of deals we’ve seen over the past year.

What is Black Friday?

If you’ve been living under a rock for a few years and don’t know what Black Friday is, it’s essentially the biggest sales event of the calendar year, with retailers slashing prices left and right. right, giving you the best opportunity to grab a bargain before Christmas.

It originally started across the pond in the US as a one day event the day after Thanksgiving, but since the UK has embraced the tradition of sales we’ve had it seen to last an entire weekend, ending on what is now known as Cyber ​​Monday.

Black Friday became a modern retail phenomenon in the mid-2000s when images of eager shoppers falling over each other to grab discount electronics went viral. Since 2005, Black Friday has been the busiest shopping day in the United States.

It gained popularity when Amazon brought the shopping bonanza to British shores in the mid-2010s. Now Black Friday is everywhere, making it easier than ever to find a bargain.

When is Black Friday 2022 in the UK?

Black Friday officially takes place on November 25 and ends on Monday November 28, but we’ve seen deals start earlier and earlier over the years, with Amazon, Currys and many others launching their deals the first week of November. .

When will Apple’s Black Friday 2022 deals start?

Last year, we saw Apple deals on iPhones, iPads, and the Apple Watch drop as early as November 4. Expect it to start around the same time this year.

As always, we’ll be hunting down the best Apple deals as soon as Black Friday sales unofficially begin and delivering them on a platter right here on this page. Give it a bookmark and you’ll be well prepared for weeks and weeks of bargain hunting when November rolls around.

What to expect from Apple deals this Black Friday 2022

Last year, many Apple products (which were released in the same year) went on sale, so we expect to see all of Apple’s newest gadgets going on sale this year as well. We hope to see contracts on the new iPhone 14 pro and iPhone 14 pro max, as well as modest savings on the older iPhone 13 pro.

We’re also hoping to see discounts on older 1st-gen AirPods pro, and if we’re lucky, second-gen AirPods pro as well. Apple Watches are usually discounted on Black Friday as well, so we’d expect to see small discounts on the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE, although we’re not sure about the Apple Watch ultra.

The MacBook air and MacBook pro are almost always on sale on Black Friday, so expect the latest M2 models to get deep discounts when the sale begins.

What were the best Black Friday Apple deals last year?

Last year we saw the Apple MacBook pro (£1,729, Amazon.co.uk), get a deep discount of £100. At the time, it was the latest and greatest MacBook Pro with the brand new M1 Pro chip and launched only a month ago.

A new MacBook pro and MacBook air with an M2 chip were released earlier this year, and we’re expecting discounts on these new models.

(Apple)

We also saw a discount on the Apple AirPods pro with the MagSafe charging case (£199, Johnlewis.com), bringing them down to £185. Apple no longer officially sells this model, so we’d expect the first and second-generation AirPods Pros, which just launched, to go on sale.

(Apple)

Currys made a nice saving of £20 on the Apple Watch Series 7 (£359, Currys.co.uk). The watch was only a few months old at the time, so we’re also hoping to see discounts on the Apple Watch Series 8 this year, although we don’t know if the Apple Watch ultra will get the same treatment.
