Black Friday may be over, but sales and deals continue right through the weekend and into Cyber Monday. Many retailers across the globe have extended their Black Friday deals, so here we bring you everything you need to know about how to find the best bargains.

We've also got our pick of the very best Black Friday deals on all things Apple, including iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV, headphones, speakers and lots more.

Best Apple deals of Black Friday weekend

Our team of Apple experts is always scouring the web for the top deals, offers and discounts on Apple products and accessories on sale for Cyber Month, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

We use our knowledge of Apple, its products and the retailers that sell them to highlight only the best money-off offers and weed out the deals that aren't as good as they appear to be.

Apple has kicked off its own Black Friday shopping event, which will last four days to cover Cyber Monday too. There, you'll find that you can get a free Apple Store Gift Card worth up to £160/US$200 when you buy a qualifying product from the Apple Store. Take a look at the shopping event on Apple's Website here.

With iPhones, Apple TV, HomePod, Apple Watch and Beats you'll get a £40/$50 voucher, with iPads up to £80/$100, Macs up to £160/$200.

The catch is that Apple is not including purchases of the new MacBook Air, the latest iPhone and iPad models or the Apple Watch Series 4 in this promotion, so for those you'll need to look elsewhere.

In the UK, Apple Premium Reseller KRCS has the best deals at the moment if you're looking for new Macs, while Currys PC World, John Lewis and Laptops Direct also have deals on older models plus iPads and accessories. For iPhone deals try Mobiles.co.uk and Carphone Warehouse for the cheapest contract.

We're focusing on UK deals here, but if you're based in the US you can take a look at the best deals for you on our sister site Macworld.com.

We have picked out the best 10 Apple deals we've found across all retailers in the UK below. If you'd like to find out more about Black Friday and our advice on how to get the best deals, you can skip ahead to our buying advice by clicking here.

Will Apple join in with Black Friday 2018?

Apple's four-day shopping event has begun, and will end on Cyber Monday (26 November). It came as quite a surprise after several years of one-day-only sales for Black Friday, but beyond that it's not much of a departure from what Apple has done for Black Friday in previous years.

You won't find discounts from Apple as part of its shopping event. Instead you'll get free Apple Store Gift Cards with select purchases. The gift cards are £40, £80 or £160 depending on the product you buy. You can take a look on Apple's website here.

You'll be pleased to hear that you'll find Apple products available with big discounts from third-party retailers in the UK and US on Black Friday, so Apple's free gift cards aren't the only option.

Black Friday sales 2018

There are thousands of retailers across the globe taking part in Black Friday. Below, we've picked out some of the best for you to browse.

When is Black Friday?

Black Friday always falls on the day after Thanksgiving, which means that this year's Black Friday is 23 November. It's followed by a weekend of deals and then Cyber Monday on 26 November. Here's everything you need to know about Cyber Monday 2018.

However, many retailers kick off their Black Friday sales event before the day itself. Amazon, which is one of the biggest players on Black Friday, started its Black Friday deals on 16 November, while many others including Currys PC World and Carphone Warehouse started theirs earlier in November. Many even continue their deals into December.

Expect to see amazing deals from now on until 2019 arrives. If there's something you've had your eye on for a while, now is the time to buy.

What is Black Friday?

On Black Friday, retailers offer huge discounts to shoppers ahead of the holiday season. It all began in the US, falling on the day after Thanksgiving, but over the past three or four years it has really taken off around the world, including here in the UK.

It follows Black Friday, so called because it’s the day when stores traditionally go from the red (debit) to the black (credit).

A more recent trend is Cyber Monday. It came about because it tended to be the busiest day of the year for online shopping. It always falls on the Monday after Black Friday.

Here is where we bring you the very best deals on gifts and gadgets from across the web to make sure you don’t miss out on Black Friday bargains. Many of the deals offered will run for a limited time or offer limited stock, so you’ll want to keep on top of things in order to get everything you want.

We’d strongly recommend making a list of what you’re looking for in the sales. Try not to buy things on a whim because they sound like a good deal, because you could soon find you have lots of things you didn’t need and have actually spent far more money than you would have otherwise (we discovered this the hard way).

Where to find Black Friday Apple deals

Third-party reseller KRCS has some great deals on Macs - you can get 10% off even Apple's newest Mac models. Discounted Macs include built-to-order configurations, too.

Amazon, Currys, Argos, John Lewis, AO, Ebuyer and other retailers offer Apple discounts too.

If you’ve found that you’re missing out on Amazon’s Lightning deals, which run for just a few hours and offer limited stock, we’d recommend signing up for Amazon’s 30 day free trial of Prime, which will get you access to deals 30 minutes before everyone else. Plus, you’ll get free next-day delivery with the Prime trial, as well as access to Prime Instant Video and more.
