23 Best Black Friday Deals on iPhones and Apple Gadgets
If you know what to look for, Black Friday can be the perfect time to get some great deals on electronics. Stores both online and off offer great Black Friday deals on many tech products. And while some Black Friday promotions aren’t worth it, many are worth the trouble if you’re in the market for a relatively expensive gadget like a TV, a laptop, or even a smartphone.
If there’s one company that’s notorious for rarely offering discounts, it’s Apple. The best promotion that Apple offers is usually a sale that combines a gift card with a popular device, which doesn’t end up saving you a lot of money. Fortunately for bargain-hunting Apple fans, other retailers offer good Black Friday deals on Apple products. We’ve collected this year’s best Black Friday deals on iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, Macs, and other Apple gadgets. You can even look forward to some deals on the new iPhone 7.

CNET notes that if you buy an iPhone 7 (not an iPhone 7 Plus), on an AT&T Next, Verizon Device, or Sprint 24-month installment plan, Best Buy will give you a store gift card.
