Apple has been known to join in on Black Friday, but in recent years it has chosen to offer gift cards instead of discounts.

Last year, Apple’s one-day event rewarded customers with a free gift card worth up to £120 with certain purchases, so we can expect something similar to take place this time round too.

If it’s discounted prices you’re looking for though, your best bet is to head to other major retailers like Amazon, Currys or John Lewis, who will most likely continue to slash prices up until December.

Here we will be constantly updating the best deals for MacBooks, iPhones, iPads and Apple watches in the lead up to Black Friday.

Whether you’re after a featherlight laptop for working on the go, or a full-blown bonanza of a widescreen for all your graphic and editing needs, Apple has you covered. Macbooks are traditionally at the pricier end of the laptop scale, so these deals are really worth your time.

John Lewis – Apple MacBook Pro 15” with Touch Bar – was £2,199, now £1,999

Amazon – Apple MacBook Air – was £949, now £794.95

Currys PC World – Apple MacBook Pro 13” with Touch Bar – was £1,749, now £1,499

Very – Apple MacBook Pro 13” with Touch Bar – was £1,899, now £1,779

Like it or not, the iPhone is far and away the most popular smartphone choice – few would be seen dead without theirs. With the influx of new models on the market, there are serious bargains to be had on monthly deals, offering enough data to keep you Snapchatting to your hearts content.

Carphone Warehouse – Apple iPhone X, 64GB, 30GB Data – Upfront Cost £29.99, Monthly £66

O2 – Apple iPhone 8, 64GB, 50GB Data – Upfront Cost £19.99, Monthly £59.99

While the product selection is growing by the day, iPads remain a firm favourite in the tablet world. They’re light, smooth, and seriously pack a punch in the speed stakes. Purchasing one outright can often work out cheaper than a two-year monthly repayments on contracts, especially if you grab yourself a bargain.

Amazon – Apple iPad 2018 9.7” Wi-Fi 32GB – £316.99

Smartwatches are fast growing in popularity, and with the Apple version branding itself as “the ultimate device for a healthy life”, its easy to see why this could be the perfect Christmas gift for a someone who, come January, will want to get back on the wellness wagon.
