Best Black Friday Apple Deals: New iPad Air 2 Deal, Apple Watch With $100 Credit Available Now!

Published

We'll no doubt see some awesome Black Friday Apple deals today and tomorrow, and our staff has already found some higher-caliber prices. We've rounded up a handful of the best offers, but be sure to check back often, as we'll continue to update this page with all the latest and best deals on Apple computers, iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches.

NEW!
TKApple TV 32GB Media Receiver
Store: Target
Price: $112.49 in-store (the above link is for reference only)
Lowest By: $23

Is It Worth It?: In our predictions, we didn't think the newest Apple TV could possibly drop lower than $135, but Target has made a fool of us all by slashing the streamer to $112.49. You'll have to visit your local store though to get this price, but we're willing to bet that the initial wave of shoppers won't clear out all the inventory of this item, since it wasn't in Target's Black Friday ad; you might be able to still snag this deal well after the in-store chaos.

To find out more about what makes the latest-generation Apple TV different from its predecessor, check out our guide.


NEW!
iPadApple iPad Air 2 16GB Tablet with a $150 Gift Card
Store: Target
Price: $499 in-store (the above link is for reference only)
Lowest By: $51
Expires: November 28

Is It Worth It?: If you're not enticed by the last-generation iPad deal below, you can snag this one for just $100 more (or just $50 more, if you take into account the respective gift card bundles). Assuming you use the gift card, that's the lowest total price we could find by $51 and the best deal we've seen. (Staples had it for an outright price of $349 earlier today, but it quickly sold out.)


Apple WatchApple Watch with a $100 Target Gift Card
Store: Target
Price: From $349 with free shipping
Lowest By: $100
Expires: November 28

Is It Worth It?: Target's Black Friday promise comes true a day early! We thught we'd have to wait until tomorrow — and brave the stores — to get this deal, but here it is, online and available now! With the gift card giving it an effective $100 markdown, these are the best deals we've seen on the Apple Watch.

A couple of best bets, each a low by $100, are the Apple Watch Sport 42mm Aluminum Smartwatch with $100 Target Gift Card for $399 and the Apple Watch 42mm Stainless Steel Smartwatch with $100 Target Gift Card for $599.


iPhone 6Apple iPhone 6 16GB for Verizon or Sprint
Store: Best Buy
Price: $1 with free shipping with a 2-year contract
Lowest By: $98

Is It Worth It?: With phone providers pushing customers to switch to monthly plans, this is exactly the kind of deal we didn't expect to see, this Black Friday. We're OK with being wrong, though, if it means you can getan iPhone for a buck! (It's also the best price we've seen for the iPhone 6 on any carrier.)

It's available for Verizon in Space Grey or for Sprint in Silver or Space Grey.

Note that some items may be offered with store pickup only.


iphone 6s$100 off Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Phones for Sprint
Store: Best Buy
Price: From $99.99 with free shipping with a 2-year contract
Lowest By: $100

Is It Worth It?: If you're looking to upgrade your iPhone and stay on a subsidized plan, locking yourself into another 2-year contract, Best Buy comes through with a deal for you. Each of the phones is $100 less than what Sprint charges for them and these prices even beat advertised prices for Black Friday!

A couple of best bets, both at all-time lows are the Apple iPhone 6s 16GB Smartphone for Sprint for $99.99 (pictured; low by $100) and the Apple iPhone 6s Plus 16GB Smartphone for Sprint for $199.99 (also a low by $100).


Apple iPad mini 2Apple iPad mini 2 16GB WiFi Tablet with an $80 Target Gift Card
Store: Target
Price: $269 in-store (the above link is for reference only)
Lowest By: $10
Expires: November 28

Is It Worth It?: Let the Black Friday Price Wars begin! Looks like Target saw Walmart offering this tablet for $199 and said, "Not on our Black Friday!" Sure, it's not an out-right cheaper deal, but if you can use that gift card, this is a prediction-smashing price and the lowest we've ever seen on this tablet. It features a 7.9" Retina display, 5-megapixel iSight camera with 1080p HD video recording, WiFi, and iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers and Keynote apps.

Of note: If a Target gift card doesn't appeal to you, then Walmart's deals — which offers this tablet for $199 with free shipping — is still pretty impressive.


Apple iPad AirApple iPad Air 16GB Tablet in Space Gray or Silver with a $100 Target Gift Card
Store: Target
Price: $399 in-store (the above link is for reference only)
Lowest By: $95
Expires: November 25

Is It Worth It?: Yes, it's another great iPad deal that's only a steal if you can bear having to spend a large gift card. (We kinda warned you this was going to happen.) Still, assuming you can use the Target credit, it's within a buck of the all-time lowest price we've seen for a new iPad Air. If you prefer not to be burdened with free money, but would rather brave the Black Friday crowds, Best Buy will offer it for $299 as a Black Friday doorbuster.

Of note: Target also has the 32GB model in Black or White bundled with a $100 Target Gift Card for $449 at Target retail locations only. With the gift card, that's $30 under our mention from three weeks ago and the lowest total price we could find by $80.


iPhone 5sApple iPhone 5s 16GB Prepaid Smartphone for Straight Talk
Store: Walmart
Price: $299 with free shipping
Lowest By: $200

Is It Worth It?: At $200 off list price, the Apple iPhone 5s 16GB Prepaid Smartphone for Straight Talk is the best deal we've seen for this phone with Straight Talk. It features a 4" 1136x640 retina display, 8-megapixel rear camera, front camera, 1080p HD video recording, Bluetooth, WiFi, and iOS 7.
