Apple Black Friday 2015: What to Expect

The Apple Black Friday 2015 deals start before Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday 2015, but the biggest deals are still to come later this month. Here is a look at the Apple Black Friday 2015 ad predictions and advice on when and where to buy popular Apple gadgets this holiday season.

While we expect an Apple Store Black Friday 2105 ad, the biggest deals are often at Walmart, Best Buy, Target and Staples — with bigger discounts than you’ll find at Apple.

This is what you need to know about the Apple Black Friday deals including what you can expect to pay for an iPad Air 2, iPad mini, iPhone, Apple TV and the MacBook Black Friday 2015 deals.

Black Friday 2015 is one of the biggest shopping events of the year. This event normally takes places the day After Thanksgiving, but in recent years the sales shifted to Thanksgiving Day and earlier in November. Black Friday 2015 is November 27th, but you don’t need to wait that long for the deals.

One great part about the Apple Black Friday 2015 deals is that you can expect them to be on sale online and in stores so there is a good chance of saving without lining up for hours and missing out on Thanksgiving.

One in-store Apple Black Friday deal we are looking forward to is the possibility of a 1-Hour Guaranteed In Stock deal at Walmart that included a cheap iPad mini Black Friday deal.

With nearly a decade of Black Friday shopping and coverage, here is what you need to know about the Apple Black Friday 2015 deals that we expect to see from Apple and from other retailers this year.

Where to Get the Best Apple Black Friday 2015 Deals

One thing that sets Apple Black Friday deals apart from many products you shop for on Black Friday is that you can buy direct from Apple or you can buy from third-party retailers. Samsung offers similar deals, and last year Samsung was the place to buy for many items, but Apple is different.

While there will be Apple Store Black Friday 2015 ads that include savings across most of the products Apple sells, the biggest deals normally appear at Walmart, Best Buy, Target and Staples.

Apple doesn’t need to get you in the door, the Apple Store just wants to get you upgraded so you buy more content and accessories — so the deals are good but not insane.

The other retailers advertise big Apple Black Friday 2015 deals to get shoppers in the door to buy that item and since they are already invested in the shopping experience to buy other items.

This dynamic means that we typically see bigger Apple Black Friday sales at third-party retailers than we do at Apple Stores and online from Apple.

iPad Black Friday 2015 Deals

We expect to see a lot of iPad Black Friday 2015 deals this year, even if it is unlikely that many will offer a discount on the new iPad Pro. We typically see retailers focus on the iPad Air and iPad mini models. This year expect to see a range of iPad Air 2, iPad Air and iPad mini 2 deals.

  • iPad Air 2 - $150 or more off.
  • iPad Air - $75 to $100 off.
  • iPad mini 4 - $30 to $50 off
  • iPad mini 2 - $70 or more off.

We already saw Walmart offer an iPad mini 2 for $199, a savings of $70 off the list price for this iPad. We are also seeing other early deals on the iPad Air 2 at Sam's Club where the iPad Air 2 64GB and 128GB models are $150 off.
