Let's face it: Apple is undeniably the most popular tech brand on the planet. Unfortunately, though, all too often its price points make it hard to justify a purchase. Well, lucky for you, Amazon and Walmart have some incredible deals on all of your favorite Apple products this Black Friday.
We've found some serious savings (like, all-time low pricing) on things like AirPods, AirTags, iPads and even a gift card with purchase. As with all sales this time of year, prices often change without warning, and supplies are limited. So if you see something you like, it's a good idea to grab it now.
Want to keep tabs on your purse, backpack, suitcase, wallet and other items? Just toss in an AirTag. These little locators rely on a global network of iPhones to help you pinpoint your stuff just about anywhere. These sell individually for $29, so a 4-pack for $87 is a decidedly solid deal.
Last year's Apple Watch is this year's Apple Watch bargain; the Series 8 packs plenty of power (including loads of health and safety features) but can be yours for a hefty $100 off the regular price. Note that this is the 41mm size in aluminum; other colors may be priced differently.
Not much has changed between the Apple Watch Series 8 and this year's Series 9, but with this sale they're only $50 apart — so maybe it's worth the extra splurge to get the latest and greatest? I'm an unabashed Apple Watch fan; to me it's the only logical smartwatch choice for iPhone owners. Note that this is the aluminum model with a 41mm screen; the larger one is priced higher, and other colors might be as well.
Don't want to settle for an older iPad? The current-generation model packs in a slightly larger screen, faster processor, improved cameras and a USB-C charging port (buh-bye, Lightning!). It's also more aesthetically pleasing, having banished the Home button in favor of an edge-to-edge screen. The $399 sale price ties the lowest on record for this bestselling model.
Last year's iPad is this year's iPad bargain. Yes, it still has a rather chunky bezel and an old-school Home button, but under the hood it's all good: powerful processor, decent cameras, impressive battery life. It may be a long while (or never) before the current-gen iPad drops this low, so if you want a reasonable affordable Apple tablet, don't sleep on this deal.
If your old MacBook is on its last legs, this is a good time to upgrade: Amazon's Black Friday deal knocks a hefty $200 off the price of a well-appointed MacBook Air — and it's a 2023 model to boot. Check out the ratings on this thing: 4.8 stars from nearly 900 buyers. It's no stretch to say you're likely to love this laptop.

Apple is canceling its decade-long effort to build an electric car, according to people with knowledge of the matter. With 2,000 people working on it, it was one of the most ambitious projects in the history of the company.
The Federal Aviation Administration has concluded its review of SpaceX’s investigation of the second Starship launch in November, with the regulator saying Monday that it accepted the “root causes and 17 corrective actions” identified by the company. While this means the investigation is now closed, SpaceX must implement all the corrective actions and apply for a modified launch license before it can fly Starship again. “The FAA is evaluating SpaceX’s license modification request and expects SpaceX to submit additional required information before a final determination can be made,” the regulator said in a statement Monday.
