Published

Apple gets a bad rap for being overpriced, but Black Friday can still work its savings-magic on this popular brand. We've rounded up the best Apple offers below, but these popular offers tend to disappear fast — be ready to grab these gadgets before they're gone! And be sure to check back here often, as we'll keep updating this page with all the best Black Friday Apple deals.

  1. iPad mini 3Apple iPad mini 3 64GB WiFi Tablet
    Store: Best Buy
    Price: $424.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $74

    Is It Worth It?: Deals on the 16GB iPad mini 3 could be hard enough to snag on Black Friday, but the larger capacities are even less likely to see big discounts. This Best Buy deal knocks $74 off Apple's price, easily earning our attention. If you're not bothered by the iPad mini 3 being nearly indistinguishable from the iPad mini 2, then you might as well spring for this 64GB model. What sets this generation apart from its predecessor is the various colors it comes in (Black, Silver, or Gold) and the addition of a TouchID home button, which uses your fingerprint to unlock the device.

  2. Apple iPhone 5SRefurbished Unlocked Apple iPhone 5S 64GB Smartphone for GSM Networks
    Store: MobilePros1 via eBay
    Price: $399.99 with free shipping EXPIRED
    Lowest By: $300
    Expires: December 9

    Is It Worth It?: A price drop of $230 since August, it's the lowest total price we've seen for an unlocked iPhone 5S. Compatible with GSM networks, it'll work on services like AT&T, T-Mobile, and Vodafone; however, it won't work with CDMA networks such as Verizon or Sprint. Note that no warranty information is provided.

  3. Apple iPhone 4SRefurbished Unlocked Apple iPhone 4S 16GB Smartphone for GSM Networks
    Store: Yapper_Wireless via eBay
    Price: $199.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $31

    Is It Worth It?: Not only is this price a current low for a refurb by $31, but it ties last week's mention as the best deal we've seen. (Groupon offers it for the same price.) This unlocked iPhone is compatible with GSM networks such as AT&T, T-Mobile, and Vodafone; it can't be used with CDMA networks such as Verizon or Sprint. It's powered by an A5 dual-core processor and features a 3.5" 960x640 Retina display, an 8-megapixel camera, 1080p video capture, and 16GB of internal storage.

    Note: A 60-day warranty applies, but it's unclear who backs it.

  4. Apple MacBook ProApple MacBook Pro Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 2.5GHz 13.3" LED-Backlit Laptop
    Store: Best Buy
    Price: $899.99 with free shipping EXPIRED
    Lowest By: $50

    Is It Worth It?: Although we've seen a MacBook Pro at this price before, it's not a common sight. In fact, it's only hit this price point twice all year. (Outside of refurbs, of course.) Just keep in mind that this is the mid-2012 model, which means you'll get an Ivy Bridge CPU and a non-Retina screen. Features include an Intel Core i5-3210m 2.5GHz Ivy Bridge dual-core processor, 13.3" 1280x800 LED-backlit LCD, 4GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive, SuperDrive, AirPort Extreme (802.11n wireless), Bluetooth 4.0, Facetime camera, Thunderbolt port, and Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks).

  5. Apple iMacApple iMac 21.5" Core i5 1.4GHz All-in-One Desktop
    Store: Best Buy
    Price: $899.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $79

    Is It Worth It?: Outside of refurbs, it's extremely difficult to find a sub-$1,000 iMac. In fact, the 21.5" iMac has hit $980 just once this entire year. So at $900, this iMac is your deal if you're looking to spend the least amount of money possible. It's a current low by $79 and $29 under what Apple charges for a refurb. Features include an Intel Haswell Core i5-4260U 1.4GHz dual-core processor, a 21.5" 1920x1080 (1080p) LED-backlit LCD, 8GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive, 802.11ac wireless, Thunderbolt, and Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks).

  6. Apple AirPort ExpressRefurbished Apple AirPort Express 802.11n Wireless Base Station
    Store: Best Buy
    Price: $59.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $27

    Is It Worth It?: This offer is tied as the best deal we've ever seen for Apple's 2nd-gen Airport Express. It's even $27 below the current price of a new unit. You can use this dual-band 802.11a/n WiFi router to quickly connect all your devices (even PC!) on your home network, listen to iTunes via AirPlay, and enable wireless printing.

    Note: A 90-day warranty applies, but it's not clear who backs it.
