Overall, the noise cancellation, sounds quality, and transparency mode have all been improved. On the outside, the AirPods 2 are almost identical to the previous model. Their pressure relief vents have been moved up, and an improved sensor has been added that can more intelligently tell when the earbuds are in your ears versus in your pocket. If you need the best earbuds Apple has to offer, these are the AirPods for you.

Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) — $229, was $249

Watch face option menu on the <a href=Apple Watch SE 2." width="720" height="480" /> There are two big reasons to buy an Apple Watch: fitness and convenience. On the fitness side, the Apple Watch SE 2 has a simple but effective workout tracker that remembers your favorite workouts. It doesn’t have the full suite of temperature, electrocardiogram, or blood-oxygen monitoring, but it will track your heart rate and how many calories you’ve burned. From the convenience side, connecting to your iPhone is simple, and it makes texting, calling, and getting notifications super easy.

10.2-inch iPad (2021) — $270, was $329

2021 Apple iPad 10.2 on a white background. The 2021 iPad is a great starting place for a new tablet user. It’s a powerful machine with some nice features. At the time of its release, we deemed it the “best iPad you can buy today.” It has the same processor that ran the iPhone 11, which is fairly powerful and will support running multiple apps at once without noticeable slowdown. It has a front-facing 12MP, 1080p camera, so its great for FaceTime or recording TikToks. There are a lot of iPad models to choose from, but we think this is the best value for most.

Apple Watch Series 8 — $349, was $399

That makes it possibly the best smartwatch on the market. It has a powerful internal processor, so running intensive apps like GPS navigation are no problem. It has a fairly large and undeniably beautiful screen, something Apple fans are used to. It has all the fitness-tracking elements you would expect, plus a few nice bonuses like an electrocardiogram and blood-oxygen levels.

iPad Mini (2021) — $400, was $499

An iPad Mini standing in tent mode. The 2021 iPad Mini is a great option for a portable, powerful tablet. With an 8.3-inch screen, it bridges the size gap between the iPhone and the standard iPad. It’s powerful enough to run some demanding programs, so you won’t be spending a ton on just a screen for Netflix. Of course, anything you stream will look great on the Liquid Retina display. As a bonus, Apple has finally given us a tablet with a standard USB-C port.

    Over at Amazon today, you can buy the Apple iPad Mini for $400 which means you save $99 off the regular price. It's one of the best iPad Black Friday deals around, but it's likely to be overlooked by many. At this price range, you might be tempted to go cheaper with the standard iPad or pay more and upgrade to the iPad Air. By doing so, you're missing out on a great tablet for those that want portability but still enjoy a pretty fast tablet experience. If you have any issues with your hands or similar, it's even better. Keen to learn more about one of the best Black Friday tablet deals around? Let's take a look at what I consider to be one of the more underrated Black Friday deals available today.

    Why you should buy the Apple iPad Mini
    When we reviewed the Apple iPad Mini, we called it a "little powerhouse". That sums it up perfectly. It's smaller than some of the other best tablets with an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display but it looks great. Liquid Retina means it looks sharper than most while there's True Tone and P3 wide color support. Think about it logically -- you're grabbing a tablet because you need something bigger than your phone but you don't want to use something as large as a laptop. The Apple iPad Mini straddles that in-between size perfectly.

    The MacBook Air 13.3-inch M1 was the start of the reinvention of the MacBook Air making it more than just a portable alternative to the MacBook Pro. The M1 chip is still a pretty potent chip and one that I rely on throughout my working day. You can check out the differences between the Apple M2 and M1 chip and you'll be surprised to see that the M1 is still pretty powerful for most people's needs. Alongside the 8-core CPU and seven-core GPU, you get 8GB of memory and 256GB of SSD storage. It also has a gorgeous 13.3-inch Retina display while the whole thing is fanless and therefore silent. It looks good too with its backlit Magic Keyboard, Touch ID support, and a reliable FaceTime HD camera for video calls. This is the laptop that's ideal for taking to class or a coffee shop.
