Black Friday 2023
Black Friday, which takes place on November 24 in 2023, 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 and websites.
Apple products on the cheap are highly desired, and in recent years, retailers have offered some fantastic deals. We'll be gathering up a list of all the retailers, both online and in-store, offering discounts on AirPods, iPhones, iPads, iPods, MacBooks, HomePod mini, Beats headphones, Apple accessories, and more.
This roundup will be updated often 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 email@example.com.
It's important to note that many of the Black Friday deals we'll be listing 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 on in-store deals with your local retailers before heading out to shop.

Black Friday Deals by Store
Popular store chains that are offering Black Friday deals both at brick and mortar locations or online are listed below, with each of the Apple-related deals organized by product type.
As it has in years past, Apple's main Black Friday discount event focuses on gift cards earned with regularly-priced purchases. Because of this, you can usually find better and steeper discounts from other retailers, so we recommend shopping around before purchasing directly from Apple for Black Friday.
From November 24 to November 27, customers will receive Apple Gift Cards with the purchase of eligible items from the Apple Store. This includes Apple TV, HomePod, AirPods, MacBook Air, and more. You can find the full list of products in our post.
Best Buy's Black Friday event keeps adding new deals every day, and it includes the best prices we've ever tracked on Apple's entire line of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro computers. Additionally, we're seeing great deals on TVs, audio equipment, smart home products, and more.
My Best Buy Plus and My Best Buy Total members will be able to shop exclusive deals during this time, and save even more compared to non-members.

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 2022. During last year's sales, we saw all-time low prices on AirPods Pro, AirTag, 9th gen iPad, various MacBooks, and the MagSafe Charger.
For the past few years, Apple has offered a four-day shopping event, kicking off on Black Friday and lasting through Cyber Monday. Apple's 2022 event offered Apple Store gift cards ranging from $50 to $250 with the purchase of select Apple and Beats products, but many third-party retailers offered better deals including straight discounts rather than bonus gift cards.
A couple of the more popular deals during recent Black Friday events have been AirPods and AirPods Pro. We see consistent deals on these accessories throughout the year, but the steepest discounts tend to arrive with the holidays. So, if you've been waiting to buy a pair as a gift, it'll be good to keep an eye out at major retailers like Amazon.
You can also expect some kind of bonus for buying an Apple Gift Card at various retailers. In 2022, Target offered $15 gift cards with the purchase of the $100 Apple Gift Card. Given that we no longer see straight discounts on these cards as we did with the old iTunes Gift Cards, these holiday sales are the perfect time to stock up on Apple Gift Cards, and they make great stocking stuffers.
Black Friday is also usually a good time to purchase an iPhone with multiple retailers and cellular carriers offering various incentives. In 2022, this included major discounts on the iPhone 14 from carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T, among other deals from regular retailers. You can expect to see similar -- and perhaps even steeper -- discounts on the iPhone 15 this year at multiple retailers.
Otherwise, reliable Black Friday deals every year include those on Apple TV 4K, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Beats headphones, Apple Watch, iPad, iOS and macOS apps, and movies and TV shows on iTunes.
Many of the Apple items offered on Black Friday 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. While people have been known to line up for several hours to be first in line to take advantage of one of the better deals, in the past few years the term isn't necessarily meant just for in-store deals. You'll find plenty of great online doorbuster deals as well.
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.
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:
States with no sales tax: Alaska, Montana, New Hampshire, Delaware, Oregon
