With Black Friday a mere 8 days away, discounts on Apple gear are hitting a fever pitch with deals on 2022 hardware — and even some close-out steals.

Many of the deals below offer record low prices on Apple products. But there’s no guarantee that the inventory will last or the prices will not change, because Apple product sales can fluctuate drastically during the holidays. If you’re in need of a new device now or want to ensure your holiday shopping is done ahead of the big rush, the offers below provide excellent gift ideas.

Retailer store cards like B&H’s Payboo Card and the Adorama Edge Card offer additional ways to save or spread payments out over time. With Adorama Edge, which knocks 5% off, and B&H Payboo, which offers an instant sales tax refund on qualifying orders, the savings can really add up, especially on a high-end purchase like a MacBook Pro or Mac Studio.
