Apple Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales 2018
What will the Apple Store discount for Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018?
Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales are upon us, where retailers around the world slash prices and shoppers lose their minds over the best discounts and deals of the year. This year, some of the most attractive discounts on the horizon are Apple’s typically pricey products.
Exactly how much can you save on an iPhone 7, iPad Pro or MacBook this upcoming Black Friday? And is Apple Store really the best place to shop for its own products? We’re rounding up the best Apple deals and discounts from various retailers for 2018.
Is Apple participating in Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
After pulling the plug on 2015’s Black Friday event, Apple backflipped last year and held its own one-day sale event. Of course, the Cupertino company didn’t officially dub it Black Friday, instead calling it the “One Day Shopping Event”. It just happened to run at the same time as Black Friday though.
As in years past, though, you’re likely to find the best deals on Apple products from other retailers on Cyber Monday or even during Cyber Week for some stores.
Will there be Black Friday and Cyber Mondays deals on the new Apple iPhone X?
Dubbed the most expensive iPhone ever, the iPhone X retails for anywhere between $999 and $1,490. It’s not surprising, then, that lots of Apple fans are wondering if they’ll be able to snag any savings on this hot item on Black Friday.
Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to save on the iPhone X, at least during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.Back to top

How to save on Apple products on Cyber Monday
Cyber Monday is another huge shopping event for big-ticket electronic items, including Apple iPhones, iPads and computers. In years past, Apple offered the deepest discounts on older models, and only smaller savings on the latest phones, tablets and laptops. This year, with the release of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X, Apple customers can expect a similar situation. However, if you want to take advantage of these Cyber Monday savings, your best bet is going to be looking at other retailers, as Apple itself doesn’t typically partake in Cyber Monday price slashing.
The good news is that lots of other retailers will be marking down Apple products for Cyber Monday this year. Most of the same iPhone deals you can get on Black Friday, for example, will also be available throughout Cyber Weekend and into Cyber Monday. Shoppers can also expect iPads, Macbooks, Apple watches and accessories to be on sale on Cyber Monday from stores like Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Kohl’s and Newegg.
