Black Friday deals on Apple gear

The Weekender
We already know Apple’s big plan for its Black Friday sale: gift cards.
But you can typically do better than that by avoiding Apple’s retail outlets and searching out deals from other sellers. And, in fact, we’re already awash in pre-Black Friday deals on Apple gear – and some of them look pretty unbeatable.
We highlight a few of the best in the Black Friday special section below.
One warning, though: As always, these online deals can prove incredibly fleeting. Some fantastic pre-Black Friday prices on AirPods Pro and Apple’s MagSafe Battery Pack, which we saw earlier this week, already evaporated.
So, if you see a deal you like, don’t wait around. (After all, it’s already too late to order iPhone 14 Pro in time for Christmas.)
Enjoy your weekend!

P.S. Spirited, the new Apple TV+ Christmas movie starring Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds, sounds like a singing, dancing lump of auto-tuned coal. Don’t miss our scathing review.
