The Best Early Black Friday Apple Deals


Now that we’re in November, Black Friday season is already upon us. The shopping holiday doesn’t technically take place for another three weeks, on Friday, November 24, but that never stops retailers from kicking off early Black Friday deals.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with some of these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

Because of this, we’re highlighting all of the best early markdowns on Apple products and related accessories that you can already buy today. Some of the best include low prices on AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C, MacBook Air, iPad, and more. More information on these sales can be found in our Black Friday Roundup.

Of course, there is a chance that we could see better deals arrive on these products as Black Friday gets closer. This is a risk anyone has to take while shopping during the holidays, so with that in mind, many of the deals shared below are currently their best prices ever seen.
