What are the best Apple products to buy on Presidents Day?

The Apple stable is pretty big, so if you don’t have a specific product in mind and are just combing through the Presidents Day Apple sales to see what’s good, you might be looking for awhile. From desktops and laptops to smartphones and smartwatches, Apple has something for just about everybody.

That said, you’re likely to find fewer Presidents Day Apple deals on computers and more on things like mobile tech. In particular, we suggest keeping your deal radar tuned for all current iPad models as well as wearables including the last-gen Apple Watch Series 3 and Series 5 or the newer Series 6 and Apple Watch SE. These devices tend to go on sale the most often throughout the year and see the deepest price cuts during seasonal sales like these.

Don’t completely overlook pricier stuff like Mac computers and iPhones, though, as you’re sure to find at least a few of these among this year’s Presidents Day Apple deals if you know where to look (and our up-to-date roundup is always the best place to start). Apple rolled out some fresh MacBooks and desktops sporting the company’s new M1 chip late last year, so now’s not a bad time to hunt for deals on last-gen Intel-powered models that are more likely to be marked down right now.

For iPhones, keep your eyes peeled for 2019 and 2020 models among this year’s Presidents Day Apple sales. Prices for the iPhone XS series, iPhone 11 family, and 2nd-gen iPhone SE are all trending downward right now, and these are still fantastic mobiles. Apple tech is pretty good in the longevity department, after all, thanks to its excellent hardware and solid build quality, and there are still plenty of brand new last-generation units floating around.

Lastly, don’t forget about accessories such as the Apple AirPods, HomePod smart speaker, and peripherals like keyboards (particularly Apple’s excellent keyboard covers for its iPads). These are often left forgotten in the rush to grab the pricier stuff, and Presidents Day Apple sales are a fine opportunity to grab that pair of earbuds or must-have iPad add-on you’ve been eyeballing for a while.
