Cyber Monday Apple deals: FAQs

When will the best Apple Cyber Monday deals start in 2021?

The Cyber Monday deals will start on, well, Cyber Monday - that's November 29. But we'll see discounts start before then – and we're already seeing some stellar offers even ahead of Black Friday.

Several of these Apple deals may have run out of stock by Cyber Monday, but others may get the discounts increased as retailers look to get rid of all their stock. Waiting for Cyber Monday is always a gamble, as the device you're looking for could sell out before the biggest reductions begin.

Should I wait for the Cyber Monday Apple deals?

If you need a new gadget now, there's no reason to hesitate to pick it up, but if you've decided you'll wait until the sales, opting for the Cyber Monday deals over the Black Friday ones is a risky move.

Retailers will discount a product for Black Friday, and if it doesn't sell out then, they'll step up the reduction for Cyber Monday to ensure it's gone. So depending on how popular each item on your shopping list is, waiting for Cyber Monday might not always be a smart play.

Obviously all Apple products are 'popular', but some are really popular - an iPad Air deal will likely sell out a lot quicker than an iPhone Mini one, with the latter product famously underselling. To avoid disappointment, it's honestly worth sticking with Black Friday deals - if, a few days later, you find your chosen product available for even less thanks to Cyber Monday, you can always buy it again and cancel or return your first order.

What Cyber Monday Apple deals do we expect to see?

What Cyber Monday Apple deals don't we expect to see? We'll probably see iPads, Apple Watches and MacBooks all get fair discounts over the sales season, as well as accessories for them too.

iPhones and iPads will almost definitely see reductions too, though the money cut from the price might not be too much in the grand scheme of things.

So which products? Well, Apple has too many to list here, but we wouldn't expect very new devices to get discounts - that'll be the iPhone 13 and whatever launches alongside it in September - but older gadgets probably will.

Super-old Apple tech - let's say, from 2018 or before - probably won't get reduced either, though there's a chance retailers will try to get rid of any leftover stock they have of these products.

Where are the best places to find Cyber Monday Apple deals? 

Oh boy, it'd be hard to name just one place to check for Apple Cyber Monday deals. That's because the products are so popular, that retailers try to one-up each other with deals to tempt you to them.

Make sure to check different retailers before you buy a new Apple gadget, including Walmart, Best Buy, Target and Amazon's websites. 

Of course, your one-stop-shop of all the best deals will be this webpage itself, as we'll be updating it on Cyber Monday with all the top discounts you should know about. So bookmark this page and check back here then for all that information.

Great mini deal

Apple doesn't make a mini iPad very often, and the mini 5 is a good mix of the latest tablet tech in a much more portable form factor. It's great if you've got a child in the house and also supports Apple Pencil. With a discount this hefty, it's likely to be one of the winners of Cyber Monday already.
