Black Friday is a little over a month away and is generally one of the best times of the year to snap up tech at a decent price.

With Apple gadgets generally commanding a premium price, the November sales bonanza is a good time to make a purchase.

If you’re looking for a set of AirPods or even the new Apple Watch, there are sometimes discounts being offered that can save you a packet.

Apple itself doesn’t tend to participate in Black Friday that often, but other retailers like John Lewis, Amazon and Argos usually do.

For example, last year Argos, John Lewis and Currys all discounted AirPods for Black Friday.

When is Black Friday 2021?

Black Friday takes place on Friday, November 26, as it always occurs the Friday following Thanksgiving in the United States.

This will be followed by Cyber Monday on Monday, November 29.

Traditionally, Black Friday discounts end at 11.59pm on the day itself, or when the discounted stock runs out.

However, many big brands now extend their deals over the weekend and in most cases, into the Monday of the following week.

Although Cyber Monday was originally created as the online alternative to Black Friday, deals are now offered online across the entire weekend.

Will Apple participate in Black Friday 2021?

Although Apple is unlikely to start throwing around huge discounts on iPhones and iPads for Black Friday, it has started to embrace the event a bit more.

Often, Apple will offer vouchers or gift cards with purchases.

If you’re looking for larger discounts, it’ll be smarter to check out other retailers.

What Apple gadgets are likely to get discounted?

The biggest contenders for discounts are usually AirPods – Apple’s wireless headphones.

Generally, it’s the regular AirPods that get discounted, rather than the AirPods Pro.

Also, you may find a couple of the Apple Watch models are also on the receiving end of a price cut. We’re not expecting the latest-and-greatest Apple Watch Series 7 to be knocked down but the Apple Watch Series 3 and the Apple Watch SE could be reduced.

If you’re on the hunt for a new phone, it’s a good chance that last year’s excellent iPhone 12 will on sale as retailers look to make space for the iPhone 13.

When the iPhone 12 launched in 2020, there were great deals to be had on the iPhone 11, so we’d expect the same this time around.

Some retailers will also offer the handset with decent data packages attached to them – so you could pick up any of the four iPhone 12 models with unlimited data for a great price.

Finally, you can expect accessories like the wireless MagSafe charger or cases and covers for the iPad range to also be on the cut-price list for Black Friday 2021.
