The 9 best Apple deals in the Best Buy Black Friday sale


The early Best Buy Black Friday sale has slashed the prices of various Apple devices, but you’ll need to be a My Best Buy Plus or My Best Buy Total member to shop some of the best offers — including some of these killer discounts we’ve found below, including $100 off the AirPods Max, and hefty savings on the iPad and 15-inch MacBook Air. You’ll need to act fast too, as there’s no guarantee these discounts will last until the early access sale ends on Sunday, or that we’ll see them return on Black Friday itself next month.
