Black Friday (2021) at Apple: Manufacturer breaks the silence

Apple users are craving massive discounts for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Co. on Black Friday. Now the manufacturer breaks its silence and reveals in advance what's on top on Black Friday. Meanwhile, Amazon is already offering another foretaste of the great bargain battle with its "Black Friday Week".

Update from November 22nd, 2021: Now Apple is getting out there and reveals which discounts apply to purchases on Black Friday. As in previous years, there are no direct price reductions, instead buyers receive Apple prepaid cards, which can then be redeemed in the iTunes and App Store (source: Apple). Specifically, there are the following credit values:

50 euros for an iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini and iPhone SE up to 75 euros for AirPods (2 and 3), AirPods Pro and AirPods Max 50 euros for an Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Series 3 100 euros for an iPad Pro (11 and 12.9 inches) 100 euros for a MacBook Air, MacBook Pro (13 inches) and Mac mini 200 euros for an iMac (27 inches) 50 euros for an Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD up to 50 euros for an Apple Pencil (2nd generation), Smart Keyboard Folio, MagSafe Duo Charger, AirTag (4-pack) and Magic Keyboard up to 50 euros for Beats Studio3 Wireless, Solo3 Wireless and more

As predicted, brand new items (apart from the AirPods 3) are excluded from the promotion. It starts on Friday, November 26th. and runs until "Cyber ​​Monday", November 29th.

If you prefer to save now and directly, you should take a look at the Black Friday week offers on Amazon . Here and there there are also deals for those interested in Apple, especially models of the Apple Watch 6 and the iMac with Intel CPU (view on Amazon). Some examples that we picked out:

When does Black Friday 2021 start?

First we will clarify the question: When does Black Friday start? This time the fourth Friday in November falls on November 26th, 2021. Although this date marks the actual "Black Friday", retailers and manufacturers have long interpreted this quite loosely. Accordingly, you have to expect offers in advance and also afterwards. In short: The hot phase will start on November 15th at the latest and should last until December 5th. Ergo: Please don't just focus on November 26th, otherwise you could miss out on hot deals.

What's up at Apple and retailers on Black Friday?

Apple itself is one of the pioneers of the so-called "Black Friday" in Germany, after all, this beautiful, original American tradition was brought across the pond and started in 2006 with the discount battle in this country for the first time. In the meantime, however, the manufacturer is rather reluctant and in recent years has increasingly only added gift cards to the hardware and has held back with direct discounts.

But there are still the dealers. They are much more generous and tend to buy real bargains. You will probably be able to save on established and readily available products. New and scarce goods, on the other hand, will probably not be discounted. For example, we are already making the following offers at Amazon:

Apple AirPods 2nd generation for only 124 euros instead of 149 euros (view at Amazon) AirPods Max for only 445.04 euros instead of 612.70 euros (view at Amazon) Apple AirTag 4-pack for only 97.23 euros instead of 119 euros (at View Amazon) MacBook Air with Apple M1 Chip for only 957.96 euros instead of 1,129 euros (view at Amazon)

A little history in the video :

Which products could be discounted?

But what's even cheaper on Black Friday? With a bit of luck, we will receive smaller discounts for the iPhone 13 mini, as it is relatively readily available. But we wouldn't expect any discounts on the normal iPhone 13 or even on the Pro models. The same applies to the new MacBook Pro. All these products are extremely poorly available, neither Apple nor the dealers are interested in selling them at a lower price at the moment. If we had to guess, we'd expect discounts on the following Apple products:

iPad Air iPad Pro MacBook Air and MacBook Pro (models from 2020) iMac 27 inch (old Intel version) Mac mini iPhone 12, 11 and SE Apple Watch Series 3 and SE

So if you want to save on Apple products on Black Friday, you have to be willing to compromise. If you speculate on the latest products , you will get nothing, but older devices will be cheaper, especially in the free trade. At Apple itself, on the other hand, shopping is not really worthwhile.
