Leading the pack here is the lowest price ever for second-generation AirPods Pro. For $199.99, from $249, you’re getting a class-leading experience in every way. With noise cancellation that can block out nearly all sounds, an adaptive transparency mode that keeps your ear health in mind, and convenience features with all other Apple devices.
With a chic, premium design that comes in multiple colors and a custom engineered hardware, AirPods Max offer one of the best listening experiences ever from a pair of over-ear headphones. You also get two listening modes that can go head-to-head with other leaders: active noise cancelation and transparency.
After a wired listening experience? EarPods with a Lightning connector plug right into your iPhone and are discounted by 41% to $16.99.

Best MacBook Black Friday Deals
Apple’s M1 MacBook Air sets the bar super high for performance and it’s down to the lowest price ever at just $799 flat. You can use the device for days with extended battery life and it can handle nearly any task without getting hot or kicking on a fan. The latter makes sense since it doesn’t have one.
The M2 MacBook Air is even speedier over the M1, but the story here is all about the refreshed, modern design. It comes in four shades with two USB-C ports, a headphone jack, and a MagSafe port for easy charging. It also packs in a larger 13.6-inch display with an upgraded 1080pHD FaceTime camera.
While it’s only the Mac in the lineup that remains with a Touch Bar, that doesn’t mean you should pass on the 13-inch MacBook Pro. It still sports a modern design that is beloved by folks all around and it’s super fast thanks to the M2 chip inside.
Apple’s 14-inch MacBook Pro with an M1 Pro chip and an immersive 14.-inch display is down to just $1,599.99 from $1,999.99. This a full savings of $400 on the entry-level model with 512GB of storage and 16GB of RAM.
Need a truly portable powerhouse? Look no further than the 16-inch MacBook Pro with a buttery smooth 16.1-inch Liquid Retina display and an M1 Pro chip. This 10-core CPU and 16-core GPU setup can power through nearly any task imaginable.
Best iMac Deals
It’s not often that the 24-inch iMac is discounted, but nearly every color (pink, silver, green, or blue) of the all-in-one desktop is nearly $150 off for Black Friday. You can get the base model with the M1 Chip, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. The iMac boasts a very modern build with a 24-inch Retina display as the star. In the box, you also get a color matched Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse.
Best Apple Watch Deals
Getting your first Apple Watch? Look no further than the second-gen Apple Watch SE, which we called the best value of any smartwatch. It runs watchOS 9 smoothly, can track nearly any workout, offers heart rate tracking, and can detect if you’ve fallen or have been in a car crash. It comes in two sizes—40mm or 44mm— and three color options.
Want an always-on display or all the health features possible? Take a look at the Apple Watch Series 8 which is down to $349 starting. It features an Always-On 41mm or 45mm display that goes right to the edges. Plus it can take an ECG, measure blood oxygen, take a skin temperature reading, and measure heart rate. It also supports fast charging.
Want an Apple Watch built for anything? One with a bigger display? Or one that will last a LONG time? Well, if you answered yes, you need to go with the Apple Watch Ultra. It’s also down to the lowest price ever at just $739, a full 8% off the $799 price tag. It can last for days, offers a bigger, tougher and flat 49mm display that can get super bright, and features a dedicated Action button. Oh, and it’s also a dive computer on your wrist.

Best iPad Deals
Apple’s entry-level 10.2-inch 9th Gen iPad has returned to its previous lowest price ever at just $269.99. Sure, it has a home button and some sizable bezels but with the A13 Bionic inside it can handle most iPad tasks–including work or play–with ease.
The latest iPad Mini is downright adorable especially in purple or pink. It’s ultra portable with an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display housed in a super lightweight body. But it offers plenty of power thanks to an A15 Bionic chip and supports the second-generation Apple pencil. It’s kind of like a modern-day Moleskine notebook.
If you need some more power, but don’t want to spend a ton, the iPad Air is kind of where it is at. With the M1-Chip and a 10.9-inch display, you can take full advantage of iPadOS 16. Plus this iPad Air supports the original Magic Keyboard and the second-generation Apple Pencil
The latest iPad Pro is already discounted by $100 for the entry-level 128GB, Wi-Fi model. It doesn’t change much in terms of looks and keeps the incredible 12.9-inch Liquid Retina XDR display that’s powered by thousands of mini LEDs. But rather it speeds things up even more with Apple’s M2 Chip and supports a new hover feature with the second-generation Apple Pencil.
It’s rare to say the least, but the second-generation Apple Pencil is down to just $89 on Amazon.
