Apple’s Black Friday 2018: Expected iPad, iPhone, MacBook, and Apple Watch deals

“It may shun Black Friday itself, but thanks to huge discounts from the likes of Amazon, Best Buy, Target and Walmart, deals on Apple AAPL -1.07% products will be some of the biggest doorbusters this year,” Gordon Kelly writes for Forbes.

“And what Black Friday iPhone, iPad, MacBook and Watch sales can you expect?” Kelly writes. “History gives us a very good idea.””

“Black Friday sales on Apple devices follow a predictable format every year so,” Kelly writes, “having analysed recent years and spoken with industry insiders, I expect the following deals in 2018:”

• Save $200 on the Apple iPhone XR with Qualified Activation
• Apple iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR – Up to $300 Gift Card when activating a new instalment plan
• Apple MacBook Air 13.3-inch Display for $674 (save $325)
• Apple MacBook 12-inch Display for $1,049 (save $250)

MacDailyNews Take: Now, there are some excellent deals for sure, if they do indeed come to fruition. Notably, 9.7-inch iPad units are going to move very nicely on Black Friday if that deal is actually offered!


  1. Umm … how can we project BF sales for MacBook Air and MacBook when we don’t even know if/what models of those will exist? This summer the Mac punditry were falling all over themselves about a new entry-level MacBook and whether it would be a new price for the 12″ MB or a $799 MB Air, saying those might be introduced at an October media event. Now since the September iPhone event, there has been ZERO speculation anywhere, no rumors, nothing. And now today a rumor about iPads at the October media event … how about spinning up some good old fashioned Mac rumors again??
