Update: We're tracking Apple Cyber Monday deals that are live now

Apple Black Friday deals are nearly over, but we've found the very best sales still happening to help you save money on the most in-demand Apple products. Whether you're searching for a MacBook Pro or a pair of AirPods, there are still some Black Friday deals on offer for you to take advantage of. It's also a good time to keep an eye on our Cyber Monday Apple deals page, as that's where we'll be updating the latest Apple deals now Black Friday is over.

 Right now you can get the Apple Watch SE for just $219 — the lowest price we've ever seen. AirPods Pro hit an all-time low, too, but that deal is gone for now; you can still get the AirPods Pro for $169, which is a significant discount. 

You can also pick up the MacBook Air (Intel) for just $829 while supplies last, and we just added a MacBook Pro 2020 model for $300 off. 

Apple launched its own Black Friday sale, but you won't see discounted prices on products. Instead the Apple Store is offering gifts cards to redeem against future purchases and not all of the items eligible are current-gen devices. That sale started on Black Friday (Nov. 26) and lasts until Monday (Nov. 29).

Compatible with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro from 2018 and 2020, this model of the Apple Magic Keyboard is so rarely on sale that we had to blink a few times to make sure we were reading it right.
