AirPods x Black Friday 2021: What are the best deals?

Then there are the AirPods Max, which are the only model with an over-head design.

When is Black Friday 2021?

Black Friday always falls on the fourth Friday of November, which is the 26th in 2021, and the sales usually extend through the weekend into Cyber Monday.

It gets a bad rep, sustainability-wise, as it encourages shopping to excess. BUT when done consciously, you can grab some real bargains on things — like tech and white goods — that you need or are considering for Christmas presents.

So, what exactly is Black Friday?

Originating in America, Black Friday refers to the annual post-Thanksgiving sales – which are chaotic, to say the least. The event was thought to be kick-started by department store Macy’s in the thirties, but the term 'Black Friday' wasn't officially coined until years later.

Fast forward to the upwardly-mobile times of the '80s (cast your mind back to Wall Street bankers and the 1988 film Working Girl, and you'll get the vibe) and the manic shopping period we know all too well began to truly take shape.

Amazon was the first to give Black Friday a whirl in the UK, offering customers online discounts and deals on the same day as the sales in the US. Asda came next in 2013 with its in-store event, which included huge discounts on TVs and tech (there were actual fights, FYI).

Now, Black Friday has overtaken Boxing Day as the the biggest shopping event of the year, with most high street retailers taking part in some way.

Do Apple do Black Friday?

The official Apple stores don't usually partake, but retailers offer their own discounts so Apple x Black Friday 2021 isn't at total no-go.
