(Pocket-lint) - The Black Friday sales see hundreds of gadgets receive temporary price cuts, but Apple's wares typically stand out from the crowd - mainly because Apple discounts are few and far between throughout the rest of the year.

It's the AirPods and AirPods Pro that are hitting headlines for 2021 though, with excellent discounts on both models, making the fantastic wireless headphones a great price.

Apple AirPods Pro with Wireless Charging Case - save £86
Apple AirPods Pro with MagSafe Case - save nearly $80
Apple AirPods (2nd Gen) Wireless Charging Case - save nearly $50
Apple AirPods (2nd Generation) Standard Charging Case - save $40
Apple AirPods (2nd Gen) with Wireless Charging Case - save £56

With the launch of the AirPods (3rd Generation) in October 2021, the AirPods Pro are no longer the newest, though they still offer the most features with Active Noise Cancellation and silicone ear tips for a secure fit. 

The AirPods Pro were updated to offer a MagSafe compatible charging case when the AirPods (3rd Generation) arrived, but the standard wireless charging case is also still available to buy. Both are discounted in the UK, while it's the MagSafe compatible AirPods Pro that see the biggest discount in the US.

Apple is still selling the AirPods (2nd Generation) but with a standard charging case now, alongside the AirPods Pro and AirPods (3rd gen). The AirPods 2 model with the wireless charging case is discounted in the UK for Black Friday though, and it's a solid discount too. They don't offer as many features as the newest AirPods 3, but they are still absolutely excellent.
