Apple's Black Friday deals

Apple doesn’t discount products over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, instead they’re offering a free Apple store gift card up to £160 when you buy selected products. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t good sales and deals to be had elsewhere.

A host of other retailers have been getting in on the action with discounted products offered right through to Cyber Monday and the rest of the week. There’s currently a great deal on AirPods for £127.90 on eBay.

The Apple Watch Series 3 was also down to £185 on Amazon, one of the lowest prices we’ve seen (update: this is now out of stock). This Apple Watch Series 3 is available for £229.99 on Amazon.

We’ve found a great SIM-free iPhone XS offer from John Lewis for £849, saving you £250. Ideal if you don’t want to tie yourself into a lengthy contract. If you’re in the market for a new iPhone model have a look at our roundup of the best Black Friday iPhone deals this year.

Does Apple do Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals?

This year the Apple Store took part in Black Friday/Cyber Monday by offering an Apple Store Gift Card worth up to £160 when you bought a product from a select list. Although the Black Friday / Cyber Monday fever is over – what you’ll still find is the chance to personalise your Apple AirPods with a free engraving when you buy directly from the Apple store.

Luckily, retailers elsewhere offer nice discounts and deals extending through to this Friday (6th December).
