Although Apple has caught some criticism from customers for not discounting prices during Black Friday, there are a few deals to be had. The big-ticket items this year include iPads and iPad Minis, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air as well as the iPhone 6. Your best bets for savings on Apple products are at the bigger retailers like Best Buy, Target and Wal-Mart.

iPhone Deals for Black Friday 2015

Best Buy

It comes as no surprise that the best iPhone deals come from Best Buy. This year, the retailer is rewarding Black Friday shoppers with a $200 Best Buy gift card with an iPhone purchase when they trade in an iPhone 5 or newer. The deals applies only to in-store purchases and contracts with Verizon, AT&T and Sprint.


We’ve looked through a lot of Black Friday ads and found that Target is offering iPhones at $50 off (16GB for $149) that applies in stores that have a Target Mobile. The retailer will include a free $250 gift card for well-qualified guests with installment billing activation. iPhones with 64GB are also on sale ($249.99).

iPad deals for Black Friday 2015

If it’s an iPad you have your eye on this Black Friday, the biggest discounts can be found at the following retailers:


The retailer is offering the Apple iPad Air 2 Gold 16GB with Wi-Fi for in-store purchases only at a guaranteed $100 off (regularly $499). The same sale has the iPad Mini 2 at $199, a discount of $69.

Best Buy

No matter what your gigabyte need may be, Best Buy has an iPad at each capacity discounted at about $100 each. Prices for 16GB start at $499.99 and for 128GB the cost will be $699.99. The sale ends at 11:59 p.m. on Black Friday.


Target’s deals rival those at Best Buy, though when it comes to iPads this retailer will throw in a store gift card to be used at a later date. For shoppers looking for an iPad mini and sure they’ll visit Target again soon, the store is offering a $150 gift card when an iPad Air 2 is purchased for $499.

MacBook Pro and MacBook Air deals for Black Friday 2015

Best Buy’s laptop savings promise Apple fans and computer nerds an 18% discount on a 21.5-inch iMac with 8GB memory and 1TB hard drive, and a 27-inch iMac with Retina Display. It may not seem big, but the savings will add up to $150.
