(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.
The Apple AirPods Pro are the top-of-the-range AirPods, offering Active Noise Cancellation, Adaptive EQ and silicone tips for a better fit. This deal is for the wireless charging case and it sees them cost £163 instead of £249.
AirPods Pro aren't brand-spanking-new anymore, and so it's about time for a bit of discount. You can now get the latest ANC in-ears for a great price at $169.99 instead of $249.
If you have a wireless charger or just want the added convenience, you can get a decent discount on the Apple AirPods (2nd Generation) with the wireless charging case. They cost $149.99 on this deal.
The second-generation AirPods are no longer the latest model, but that doesn't mean they're not super convenient for iPhone users. Sound is decent, and the AirPods are reliable and so user friendly. This deal of $114.99 instead of $159 is for the standard charging case.
The second generation AirPods with wireless charging case are still excellent, even if no longer the latest model. This deal sees them cost just over £142 instead of £199.
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.
