Black Friday 2017: The Best Deals on iPhones, iPads, Apple Watch, Macs, and More

Thanksgiving is well underway in the United States, and Black Friday deals online and at brick and mortar stores are starting to go live across the country. Major retail stores like Target, Best Buy, and Walmart will be opening their doors this evening, while many online-only deals are already live.


Below, we've rounded up some of the best deals we've come across on Apple products like iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Macs, and accessories, and many, many more deals can be found in our dedicated Black Friday roundup.

iPhone

Walmart is offering a $300 Walmart Gift Card with the purchase of an iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, or iPhone 7 Plus on an AT&T Next or Verizon Device Payment plan. This deal is limited to stores, with activation appointments available starting at 6:00 p.m. Actual activations will begin at 8:00 p.m.


Sam's Club is offering a $100 Sam's Club gift card with the purchase of "any Apple iPhone," which may include the iPhone X, but it isn't clear if the retailer will have any in stock. This deal does apply to the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus.

Target is offering a $250 Target gift card with the purchase of an iPhone 8 or an iPhone 8 Plus on an installment plan from Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T.

If you prefer a straight cash discount, Best Buy is offering up to $200 off the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus on an installment plan from Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T.

iPad Pro

There are several deals to be had on the latest 2017 10.5 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, with multiple retailers offering discounts.

Best Buy is discounting the 10.5-inch iPad Pro by up to $150, while Target will be offering a $120 discount, dropping the price on the entry-level 64GB 10.5-inch iPad Pro model to $530, down from the regular price of $650.


B&H Photo is also offering several iPad Pro models at $50 to $100 off.

- 10.5-inch iPad Pro: 64GB, Wi-Fi - $599.00, down from $649.00
- 10.5-inch iPad Pro: 256GB, Wi-Fi - $699.00, down from $799.00
- 12.9-inch iPad Pro : 64GB, Wi-Fi - $739.00, down from $799.00
- 12.9-inch iPad Pro: 256GB, Wi-Fi - $849.00, down from $949.00

5th-Generation iPad (2017)

Both Target and Best Buy are offering the 2017 32GB iPad for $249.99, which is a discount of $80 off of the regular price of $329.99. Walmart is offering the same deal.


For some cellular 2017 iPad models, Best Buy is offering a $200 discount. At $200 off, the 32GB 2017 iPad with cellular is available for $259, down from the regular price of $459. A two-year Verizon service contract is required to get the deal.

Apple Watch

There are essentially no deals on the new Apple Watch Series 3 models, with the exception of Kohl's. Kohl's is offering $90 in Kohl's cash with the purchase of select Apple Watch Series 3 models.


Target is discounting Apple Watch Series 1 models by $70, dropping entry-level pricing down to $179.99. That's the best Series 1 deal, and Macy's is matching it by discounting Series 1 models by $70 as well, while Best Buy is offering a $50 discount if the previous deals are unavailable for some reason.

MacBook Pro

When taking into account B&H Photo's free shipping and no taxes on orders outside of New York, the company is offering the best deals on most MacBook Pro models. Adorama, which doesn't charge taxes outside of New York and New Jersey, is also offering the same discounts. MacMall and Best Buy's prices are similar on most Macs, but they can't beat no taxes for the most part.


Best Buy does actually have the best discounts on 15-inch MacBook Pro models and some higher-end 13-inch models, offering $50 off over Adorama and B&H, but in states where sales tax is a factor, B&H or Adorama deals are still likely to be better overall. In some cases, Amazon also has comparable deals.

Best Buy is discounting all 15-inch MacBook Pro models by $250, while 13-inch models are between $150 and $200 off.

Remember iPhone X on Bestbuy is $100 more than anywhere else. So that’s only $100 savings and you’re welcome. Enjoy that extra saving for yourself or someone for the holiday.

That’s not true, they did that initially and returned to original price due to so much bad press.
Best Buy now sells it at regular price, I even just did the math on their website to confirm

Nothing even mildly tempting there. Apple stopped producing decent Macs in 2015.
Back then there was no USB-C nonsense and no need to purchase a docking station.
Back then we had the superb (pre USB-C) 27" 5k iMac.
Back then we had the superb (pre Touch Bar, pre USB-C) 15" Retina MacBook Pro.
The MacBook Air could have done with a Retina Display instead they released an inflexible machine and slapped the name MacBook on it.
We have not had a Decent Mac Mini since 2012.
The current Mac Lineup is nothing but fashion accessories.
