Black Friday tends to be popular times to get the best deals on Apple, including $250 off the Apple MacBook Air with the M1 chip, Beats headphones for up to 50 percent off, the second-gen AirPods Pro for under $200 and up to $100 off iPads and MacBooks, to name just a few deals.
Though the latest versions of Apple’s devices have been out for weeks, that doesn’t mean the brand’s 2020 through 2022 models are completely old hat — older iPad Pro and MacBook Pro devices, for instance, are equipped with the M1 and M2 chips, which both deliver impressive performance for watching videos, playing mobile games, drawing or taking notes at school and work.
