Black Friday 2022 is special for so many reasons, one of which is the abundance of deals on rarely-discounted Apple devices. RetailMeNot shopping expert Kristin McGrath tells Yahoo that retailers like Walmart, Amazon, Target and Best Buy are likely offering their lowest Apple prices of the year — and are even marking down the new Apple Watch Series 8 (we found it for $50 off). Need a new iPhone? We found models for $100 off. It’s definitely the moment for AirPods (they're down to $80 — that's 50% off!!), even AirPods Pro — they’re reduced by nearly $50 at Amazon. Let’s get to it. It’s competitive out there, folks!
Early Black Friday Apple AirPods deals
"Very comfortable in the ear. Had them on and forgot they were in my ear didn't think I would wear them for long periods as I'm not fond of earphones. And case can be charged separately. one customer said.
"These are perfect in every way possible. The sound, noise cancelling, quality, battery life, everything...," one customer said.
Early Black Friday Apple MacBook deals
"The best laptop I've used in years. You won't regret it," one user said.
"The laptop is very thin. It’s good quality and came with everything needed. It works perfectly; nothing wrong with this computer. 10/10 would recommend...," one happy customer said.
"I bought this as a replacement for my 2015 15in MacBook Pro and have no regrets. The screen is jaw dropping, with colors being extremely accurate. This thing is fast and handles everything I throw at it! I use it for Excel and video editing as well as music production via GarageBand. Build quality is superb and has a premium feel. Speakers sound better than most portable Bluetooth speakers...," one customer said.
Early Black Friday Apple Watch deals
One customer said, "The Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) has to be the best value Apple Watch in the lineup."
"Don’t know how I lived without it, even though I’ve never worn a watch and I’m 73! Most love controlling earbuds for Audible books and podcasts. And using to ping my iPhone to find it in the house. And receive phone calls when my phone isn’t handy. And reminders on my wrist," one customer said.
Early Black Friday Apple iPhone deals
"Awesome. Bought a replacement for my wife's older iPhone. Brand new, works great, was delivered quicker than anticipated and it was an easy process to switch over," one customer said.
"I love the iPhone 11. It was easy to setup and straight talk SIM card went right in and service continued. I have to get used to the bigger screen but I love the phone. I went from iPhone 6s to iPhone 11," said one customer.
Early Black Friday iPad deals
"If you’re anything like me you want something to watch shows on in you living room or bed, but you don’t like the TV, and your phone is too small. Well this is the perfect thing for you, the screen is just the right size and very crisp and clear(maybe better then my iPhone X), the responsiveness is excellent, and all of the streaming sites work with this perfectly. On top of that, my AirPods automatically switch between this and my phone, so I don’t have to worry about messing with the settings every time," one viewer said.
One satisfied shopper said, "I purchased this for my little one to play Roblox on. Perfect for a child’s hands. She loves it and doesn’t complain about her game lagging anymore. Speakers sound really nice too. Screen is nice. I’m thinking of getting one for myself. Worth the price."

Early Black Friday Beats deals
One customer said, "They do the job just as good, probably even better than Apple. I feel like AirPods are overrated honestly. The magnet on these are strong, battery life amazing and sound quality fire!"
"I cannot express how much I love these headphones. I have been searching for cordless noise cancelling headphone for YEARS and have bought so many pairs; these are by far my favorite. I would even say they are life changing for me. I have TMJ issues, so heavy duty headphones that cover the ears are not an option for me. But I really wanted something that worked with Bluetooth so I didn’t feel tethered by needing to plug them in. These are it," said one customer.
Early Black Friday Apple AirTag deals
"I went hiking, dropped my keys and someone picked them up. My phone told me where they were and I was able to find them on the side of the road a few hours later within minutes. When I found the keys they were mangled and snapped in half but the AirTag was perfectly fine. I'm amazed by the impact it was able to survive and it still works like new! Will be buying more," said one customer.
