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!

Speakers sound better than most portable Bluetooth speakers...," one customer said.

Early Black Friday Apple iPhone deals

With a 6.1 inch screen and up to 17 hours of battery life, this iPhone can keep you going all day long. Bear in mind that it is locked to Total by Verizon plans, though, so it's not a great fit for AT&T users.

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.

If you're looking for a handheld iPad that still has all the power of a full-sized unit, look no farther. Driven by an A15 Bionic chip, this 8.3-inch display has up to 10 hours of battery life and works with Wi-Fi 6.
$400 at Best Buy

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."

"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.
