With Black Friday 2017 just under a month away, Apple deals and sales predictions are already beginning. Find out which iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches might see a price drop this shopping season.


The first Black Friday 2017 ads and deals have begun leaking online, but so far, no news on which Apple devices will getting discounts and from which retailers. If last year few years’ sales are any indication, this year, tech and gadgets will definitely see prices cuts at retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, Target and more. This includes deep discounts on products from Apple like the original Apple Watch or iPad Air models and iPad minis.  There also may be some surprise deals ahead for new devices like the iPhone 8. Below we’ve compiled all known Apple Black Friday 2017 deals, sales and predictions we can find, along with when those sales are scheduled to begin. We will continue to update the page as more information as it becomes available.

When Is Black Friday 2017?

Black Friday traditionally comes the day after the US Thanksgiving holiday. This year, Black Friday falls on November 24, 2017 in the US.

When Do Black Friday Sales And Deals Start?

This is a tricky question. While Black Friday 2017’s official date is Friday, November 24, many retailers opt to begin sales much earlier. Last year, stores like Walmart, Target and New Egg announced holiday sales beginning as early as November 1, while companies like Best Buy held special “Pre-Black Friday” sales on November 8th . Even if stores opt not to hold “early” Black Friday sales, many do choose to open at 6 pm on Thanksgiving evening for shoppers to take advantage of price cuts. While the official Black Friday date will likely bring its own unique sales, you should probably start looking for deals to begin right after Halloween this year.

Apple Black Friday 2017 Deals And Sales Predictions

According to DealNews.com, Apple devices like the iPhone 7 and 8 are likely to see prices slashed as the latest iPhone X has now released. But if you are looking for the best deals on Apple iPhones, iPads, iPods and accessories don’t start your shopping at Apple! The company rarely gives a price cut on their items on Black Friday.

For deals on any Apple devices, your best bet is to keep an eye on retailers like Walmart, Best Buy and Target or at major cell phone service providers like T-Mobile and Verizon. Based on sales we saw last year, here are our Black Friday sales and deals predictions for Apple products this year.

iPad Pro

Last year, Target and Meijer offered the best deals on the iPad Pro, dropping the price by $150. With the discount, the entry-level 32GB Wi-Fi only iPad Pro model was available for $449. For the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, MacMall had the best deal, dropping prices by as much as $149. We predict sales and deals to be about the same on iPad Pro models this year as well.

iPad Air 2

If you're looking for a less expensive iPad during Black Friday iPad Air 2 will likely be the model to receive the deepest discounts. Last year we saw the iPad Air 2 receiving discounts of up to $125 dollars at Target and Best Buy dropping the entry-level models to just $399. Since Apple replaced the iPad Air 2 this year with a new device simply named “iPad,” analysts predict that retailers with iPad Air 2 models remaining in their stock could be discounting them as much as $200 this year.

iPad Mini 4

Though the iPad Mini 4 is the newest iPad mini currently available, it could still see price cuts at retailers this year. Last Black Friday, Target and Staples both offered $100 dollars off the iPad Mini 4. This year, however, BestBlackFriday.com predicts iPad Mini 4 could get even deeper price cuts, going as low as $249 for the 128GB model. According to the site, Best Buy sold the iPad Mini 4 for $275 during a July sale, so Black Friday sales are predicted to be even lower.

iPhone 8

The iPhone 8 may have just released, but it doesn’t mean we won’t see price cuts on it this Black Friday. Last year, the iPhone 7 was the latest iPhone model but retailers like Best Buy, Target and Walmart were all offering $250 gift cards to customers purchasing the iPhone 7 through them. Meanwhile, both T-Mobile and Verizon offered a Black Friday trade-in deal that dropped the cost of the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus to $0 with the trade-in for new customers. We expect deals along the same line will likely be offered for the iPhone 8 as well, particularly since the demand for iPhone X is high right now.

Apple Watches

Though discounts on the newest Series 3 Apple Watch are pretty unlikely, the two older models of Apple Watches probably will. Based on last year’s Apple Watch deals, we could see prices for the Series 2 dropping to $279 as the series two has already seen some sales this year dropping it to $299. Meanwhile, the Series 1 could go as low as $179.​
