Buckle up everyone. Black Friday, the shopping event of the year, is here.
From Black Friday to Cyber Monday there are incredible deals to be had from TVs to laptops to cookers. Whether you’re hoping to save huge amounts on expensive household items or snap up a rare deal on the sought after tech drops of the year, it’s worth getting ahead and scoping out which discounts retailers are offering this year.
On the subject of sought after tech- it’s the day to get your hands on that Apple product you’ve had your eye on all year. Black Friday is a rare opportunity to get your hands on even their newest products at a discounted price.
Retailers will be chopping the price of Apple products from Macs, to iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches. One of the most popular items during Black Friday sales are AirPods. The tech-giant released the latest AirPod 3 last month, and there are now four different styles of the wireless headphones to take your pick from.
Whether treating yourself or buying AirPods for a gift, it can be hard to know which style to go with. Every one in the Apple range has voice-activated Siri. It can switch songs, adapt the volume, make calls, and announce notifications from your paired devices at your request.
They’re also all Apple H1 headphone chip powered, which provides a a stable connection to your Apple products and facilitates automatic switching between them. The more expensive products in the range like the over-ear AirPods Max and the AirPod Pro boast additional hi-tech tech features like active noise cancellation and transparency mode that adapts to how much outside sound you want to block in or out.
Just like the AirPods Max and Pro, the new AirPods 3 have spatial audio and dynamic head tracking. This creates an immersive surround sound listening experience by following your head movements and adapting the sound accordingly.
We’ve scanned the market and found the best AirPods deals on offer this year. We’ll be regularly updating the list with the latest deals so make sure you keep checking back to scoop up a bargain.
