Does Apple take part in Cyber Monday sales?
Strictly speaking, no, Apple does not take part in Cyber Monday sales. However when you buy an eligible product you’ll get an Apple Gift Card for a later purchase. Gift card values range from £25 for 2nd generation AirPods and 3rd generation Airpods, to £50 for the iPhone 13 or iPhone 12 to £75 for AirPods Max. This means that, while you may not be getting an upfront discount on the product you purchase today if you are a loyal Apple fan and know you will shop with the brand again in the future, then it’s well worth the purchase as you will get money off your next new gadget choice.
Can I get Apple products from other retailers this Black Friday?
The good news is that Apple products are available via third party retailers such as Currys, Amazon , AO and Very. If you’re looking for a new phone, you can also get some discounts on various contract plans which you could use with your brand new iPhone, no matter which model you choose. For example, Sky Mobile are offering 50% off their 60GB data plan which means you save £540 on their 60GB data plan with any phone. You can also save up to £144 on a brand new iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 with EE. Elsewhere, Vodafone are also offering up to £312 on airtime on the iPhone Pro Max or iPhone SE. You can also save £336 on the iPhone 13 on Three.
What is Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Black Friday and Cyber Monday take place every year, and this year are on Friday 25 November and Monday 28 November.

On Black Friday shoppers are offered deals on items online and in stores, whereas on Cyber Monday the deals are only available online. There are always great deals to be had from many brands and across a range of products, including clothing, homeware, technology and toys.
