How to get the best Black Friday (2020) deals

Spotting a good Black Friday deal takes a bit of work but luckily we have pulled together all the best Apple deals by product in the following deal roundups. We include the prices that you would pay if you bought the product (or equivalent product) from Apple.

Our team of Apple experts is always scouring the web for the top deals, offers and discounts on Apple products and accessories on sale, whether it's Black Friday or not.

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.

We have picked out the current best Apple deals we've found across all retailers in the UK below.

Will Apple have Black Friday 2020 deals?

Yes, Apple confirmed on 23 November that its four-day shopping event will return this year.

The four-day event began at 12 AM on 27 November, and will end at 11:59 PM on 30 November, aka Cyber Monday). Apple customers will get a gift card worth up to £120/$150/AUD$210 with select purchases.

Take advantage of this deal over at Apple's dedicated Black Friday Shopping Event page.

The catch, unfortunately, is that its newest products are not included, such as the iPhone 12 range, or new 10.2in 8th gen iPad or Apple Watch 6.

Official Black Friday shopping event aside, we'd also keep an eye out on the Apple Refurbished Store for any discounts on iPhone handsets, iPads, Watches, MacBooks and other devices.

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 gift cards aren't the only option.

Should I wait for Cyber Monday?

Black Friday has been and gone, but the sales no longer last just one day. Retailers have started launching deals earlier and earlier and continue them into December. If you see a good deal, chances are the price won't go any lower.

Our advice is clear: if you see a good deal, don't wait.

When is Black Friday 2020?

Black Friday always falls on the day after US Thanksgiving. This year, the date is 27 November.

While the event itself falls on the tail-end of the month, discounts and deals started rolling in well before then. Recent years have shown that Black Friday is no longer a singular event, but an entire period, and Amazon's launch of its Early Black Friday Deals event at the end of October highlights just that.

This is good news for shoppers for a couple of reasons. First off, it removes having to wait until November and then the inevitable frenzy for limited stock on an isolated day or week. Second, in a post-coronavirus world, pacing deals out over a series of weeks instead of days will no doubt help prevent delivery overloads.

This also allows Apple shoppers to explore Apple deals from other retailers, and not just from Apple's own Black Friday promotion, which is fairly limited. 

Amazon often has a mighty array of Black Friday Apple deals, while others worth checking out include Currys PC World and Carphone Warehouse (see our list of all sales on above).

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 few years it has really taken off around the world, including here in the UK.

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