(Pocket-lint) - Apple's AirPods are excellent wireless headphones, offering some great convenience features for iOS users, like auto switching between devices, one-tap connecting and announcing notifications and calls. 

Deals on AirPods - whether the first generation or the latest models - aren't common, though if there's ever any money off, the Black Friday sales period is typically the time you'll find it.

We're following all the Apple AirPods deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday here to help you get a pair for the best price.

What AirPods deals are we expecting?

Apple announced the third-generation AirPods in October 2021, which means the second-generation AirPods and the first-generation AirPods are seeing some discounts during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

With the AirPods Pro no longer new, and the AirPods (3rd generation) creeping into their space a little by offering some of the same features, like Adaptive EQ and sweat and water resistance, there are also some great deals on the noise-cancelling Pro model too.

When is Black Friday?

Black Friday always falls the day after Thanksgiving, which for 2021, is the 26 November. Cyber Monday - which got its name from previously being associated with tech deals online - then takes place the following Monday, which for this year is 29 November 2021.

In reality, the Black Friday sales don't just take place on that Friday through to that Monday though. The Black Friday sales period typically starts a couple of weeks prior to the main event, sometimes even from the beginning of November so you don't need to wait until the day itself to grab yourself a bargain.
