Black Friday 2018

Black Friday, which takes place on November 23th in 2018, is a major shopping holiday in the United States. During the event, retailers across the country drop their prices on thousands of items, hoping to lure shoppers to their stores.

Apple products on the cheap are highly desired, and in recent years, retailers have offered some fantastic deals. We're gathering up a list of all the retailers, both online and in-store, offering discounts on iPhones, iPads, iPods, MacBooks, Beats headphones, Apple accessories, software, and more.

This roundup will be updated on a daily basis as Black Friday approaches. We'll highlight the very best deals that are being offered this year so MacRumors readers know where to go for the best discounts. If you spot a good deal or have a site offering a Black Friday discount, make sure to send us an email at

With Black Friday sales starting earlier and earlier every year, you'll want to keep an eye on this roundup throughout the month of November, as we'll also be highlighting a range of pre-Black Friday discounts.

It's important to note that many of the Black Friday deals listed below will be limited, especially those that are "doorbusters," or specific sales designed to draw people into a store. These kinds of deals tend to go quickly as stores have a limited amount of supply, so in some cases, it's best to take advantage of a deal as early as possible.

Because deals can vary between stores and locations, we recommend double checking these prices with your local retailers before heading out to shop. In some states, Black Friday sales are prohibited on Thursday, so in these areas, Black Friday sales will be delayed.

Past Black Friday Deals

For an idea of what kind of deals we can expect this year, it's worth taking a look at some of the best deals that we saw in 2017.

Apple did not offer Black Friday deals in 2017, and it's not clear if the company plans to do so in 2018, but many third-party retailers had deep discounts on Apple products.

Current iPhone models were available with gift cards up to $300 from stores like Walmart, Sam's Club and Target, while iPad Pro models were available for up to $150 off.

Multiple MacBook, MacBook Pro, and iMac models were available for several hundred dollars off, with the deepest discounts on older models.

Shopping Tips


Many of the Apple items listed are what stores like to call "Doorbusters" because they are products that are designed to get people into the store. These are often the store's best deals and tend to be very popular. People have been known to line up for several hours to be first in line to take advantage of one of the better deals, which means stock on a lot of the most discounted Black Friday items could be limited.

Check Deals Locally

Not all deals are offered at all retail locations, so it's a good idea to get in touch with your local retail outlet ahead of Black Friday to confirm deals and to potentially get an idea of what product stock might look like.

Sales Tax

National retailers like Apple and Best Buy charge local sales tax on all orders, so when making an online order, it is best to consider all sales tax options. Ordering from smaller online retailers can be a benefit, as not all stores charge sales tax in all states. Customers in states where retailers do not collect sales tax may, however, be required to pay a calculated or estimated "use tax" on out-of-state purchases as part of their income tax filings.

Local sales taxes are automatically charged for online orders from the following retailers in the following states:

- Apple, Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Sam's Club, Target: All States

States with no sales tax: Alaska, Montana, New Hampshire, Delaware, Oregon
