Black Friday may have ended, but Cyber Monday is here, which means there are still excellent discounts around if you know where to look. 

Originally, Cyber Monday was the most popular online shopping day of the year, but in more recent years it’s just another excuse for even more incredible discounts on big-brand products.

You’ll find Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals carrying on into the first week of December, turning the event into a Cyber Week. This should give you just enough time to nab what you need before Christmas. 

In this article, we outline how to get the best Apple deals through Cyber Monday.

What is Apple doing for Cyber Monday 2021?

Apple kicked off a Shopping Event on 26 November that will end at midnight on Cyber Monday (29 November). It’s offering up to £160/$200 gift cards with qualifying Apple purchases.

Apple hans’t included the gift cards on its latest devices however, which excludes lots of iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and MacBook options.

Thankfully, Apple isn’t the only place for deals. You can still find plenty of offers from third-party retailers across the US, UK and beyond, on iPhones, iPads, Macs and more. We’re sharing the best bargains right here.

Was: £749

Now: £699  (£50 off)

Apple’s exceptionally powerful M1-equipped iPad Pro for 2021 has a chunky price tag to match. But it’s less chunky if you go to Currys – or Amazon, which is matching the deal.

From: LaptopsDirect

Was: £2,399

Now: £2,199.97  (£199.03 off)

Laptops Direct has almost £200 off the 16in MacBook Pro with M1 Pro chip, it’s not as big a saving as KRCS, but it’s an option if KRCS runs out of stock again (as it did earlier in the week!)

9. Apple 14in MacBook Pro, M1 Pro, 8-Core CPU/14-Core GPU, 2021

From: John Lewis

10. Apple AirPods Pro with MagSafe charging case

From: John Lewis

Was: £239

Now: £185  (£54 off)

A solid saving on the AirPods Pro, Apple’s excellent true-wireless earphones with ANC. Amazon is matching the deal, but we’d go with John Lewis because of the firm’s longer guarantee.

From: Amazon

Was: £379

Now: £319  (£60 off)

Following its official discontinuation in September 2021, retailers have continued to sell the Apple Watch Series 6 at a discount.

It cost £379 when new, so this is a generous saving; bearing in mind that the Series 7 does not represent a huge step forward, this is a decent option at just over £300. That said, it was cheaper on Black Friday itself at just £289.

12. Apple Watch Series 6 (40mm, Cellular)

From: Amazon

Was: £479

Now: £369  (£110 off)

13. Apple AirPods 3 (2021)

From: Laptops Direct

Was: £169

Now: £159  (£10 off)

Laptops Direct is doing some mathematical acrobatics here – how this can be a £25 saving when the RRP is quite clearly £169 is a mystery – but this remains a good price on the new AirPods.

In fact, barring some distinctly dodgy-looking websites we wouldn’t recommend you use, this is the only site we can find offering a discount at all.

14. Apple Pencil (2nd Gen)

From: Amazon

Was: £119

Now: £99  (£20 off)

The second generation Apple Pencil for iPad has £20 off for Black Friday on Amazon, in a price that beats the retailer’s Prime Day offer.

How to get the best Cyber Monday deals

Spotting a good Cyber Monday deal takes a bit of work but luckily we have pulled together all the best Apple deals by product in the following deal roundups. We include the prices that you would pay if you bought the product (or equivalent product) from Apple.

Once you know what you’re looking for, check out our dedicated deals pages. We spend hours scouring the web for the best promotions every month so you have them at your fingertips:

If you want to compare the different Apple products and their prices, Apple conveniently charts configurations and starting prices on its products:

Where to find Apple deals on Cyber Monday

Beyond Apple, you’ll find great Cyber Monday deals from authorised Apple resellers such as KRCS. KRCS covers the full range of Apple products, including AppleCare coverage and Beats headphones.

Of course, Amazon is the ultimate Cyber Monday juggernaut to watch. We would recommend signing up for the 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime so you can take advantage of the Lightning Deals.

Lightning Deals slash prices off limited stock items, which is why the deals only last a few hours. The benefit of a Prime membership is that you would be able to access the Lightning Deals 30 minutes in advance of non-members, which can come particularly handy in the madness of Cyber Monday.

It’s a good idea to keep an eye on the competing retailers that offer Apple products, some of which include:

When and what is Cyber Monday 2021?

Cyber Monday was given that name because it tended to be the busiest day of the year for online shopping. The day always falls on the Monday after Black Friday, which is the day after Thanksgiving. In 2021, Cyber Monday will be on 29 November.

Typically, deals continue across the weekend and on into the week after. Sales seem to last longer every year as retailers try to squeeze every possible drop out of the season.

On Cyber Monday retailers across the globe offer huge discounts to shoppers both online and in stores (but not so much this year due to COVID-19 restrictions).

It’s unusual to find a retailer or brand that doesn’t take part in Cyber Monday, and as the event gets more popular the deals become even more aggressive.
