Apple Black Friday roundup

Black Friday deals are heating up even more as we move closer to the official date, and no product is safe – not even the notoriously-pricey Apple devices.

You might think that Apple products rarely get discounts, but that hasn't been true for a long time. And this year, Apple Black Friday deals are in rare form, offering new record-low prices that mean budget-minded Apple lovers can partake in all that premium goodness without spending as much.

I've been an Apple user for years, and I've basically got the complete set. I have a Mac, an iPad, an Apple Watch, an iPhone, an Apple Pencil, and a pair of AirPods Pro, and let me tell you something, I've spent a lot of money on them. For some reason, I've never felt the need to buy an Apple product during the biggest sale of the year, so I always end up paying full price for all of them, which – based on the Apple deals available this year – was a huge mistake.

If you're in need of an upgrade from your ageing Apple device, or you just want to join the Apple bandwagon, don't be like me. Take advantage of these epic deals below from Amazon and Walmart's Black Friday deals. And hurry, because these tend to disappear quickly.
