Political News: Best Black Friday 2019 Apple deals available now
Released in early November, the AirPods Pro are available for a (slightly) cheaper price. Regularly priced at $250, the small discount for the noise-canceling earbuds is great for those needing to upgrade their previous AirPods or those who want to dive into a truly wireless audio experience.
Get a new iPhone 11 (or iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max) and Verizon will give you $700 off a second, which is like getting a standard iPhone 11 for free.
Here’s a stealthy deal you don’t want to miss on the new MacBook Air. At Amazon, it’s $899, which is already well down from Apple’s list price of $1,099. But, if you choose “no rush shipping,” you can knock another $100 off, which is pretty amazing.
Another decent optioon: Get $200 off a new MacBook Air right now with this Best Buy deal. Best Buy is also offering $100 off the brand-new 16-inch MacBook Pro now as well (if you’re a member of the My Best Buy program, which is free to join).
