Are you ready to upgrade to a new iPhone XS or iPhone XR? What about a new MacBook Pro? You may want to wait for the Apple Black Friday 2018 ad, and the huge number of Apple Black Friday 2018 deals that will be live at other retailers during Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Here’s a look at what you can expect from the 2018 Apple Black Friday ad, and what you should and shouldn’t expect from iPhone, iPad and Mac Black Friday deals this year.
With Black Friday starting earlier and earlier every year, you can already find some huge savings. Apple announced the 2018 iPad Pro, 2018 MacBook Air and a new Mac Mini on October 30th. These go on sale on November 7th, and are brand new for 2018. While it may be hard to find loads of deals on the new items during Black Friday, we still expect to see them. Additionally some of the hottest items like the Apple Watch 4 are still not in stock for delivery until after Black Friday.

Apple Black Friday Start Date & Time
Most Apple Stores do not open on Thanksgiving, so if you plan to buy directly from Apple, you should look for deals on Black Friday. Expect many of the deals direct from Apple to start at 12:01 AM Pacific on Black Friday. On Black Friday in store, you can expect Apple Stores to open around 8 AM local time.
The best Apple Black Friday deals are at Walmart, Target, Best Buy and online retailers. Many of these deals will start as part of early Black Friday 2018 deals at the start of November. Look for these at B&H Photo as well as other online stores.
Will Apple Price Match on Black Friday?
Many of the biggest Apple Black Friday 2018 deals will be at other retailers. You may be tempted to go to an Apple Store on Black Friday to see if they will price-match these deals. Don’t waste your time on this. Apple can occasionally price-match, but it’s at the manager’s discretion and not normally done. On a busy shopping day like Black Friday, don’t expect to get any Apple Black Friday price matching.
