Discounts on Apple products are rare but for Prime Day 2020, the company has slashed prices across the board on Amazon. If you’ve been meaning to upgrade your MacBook or your relatively old iPad or even switch to AirPods from the dusty-ol’ wired EarPods, there’s no better time. But you have to act fast, because all of these deals will expire before the day’s end. Lucky for you, you won’t have to browse through heaps of listings as we’ve compiled the 11 best last-minute Apple Prime Day deals right here.
Apple’s base AirPods are on sale, too, and are available on Amazon for $44 off. The difference between this product and the higher-end model is that the case here doesn’t support wireless charging. Apart from that, the Apple AirPods are a no-brainer if you’re looking to upgrade to wireless earbuds. While they can connect to any Bluetooth-enabled device, they work best with an iPhone thanks to exclusive features such as instant pairing and gesture customization.
For buyers who want to get rid of as many cables from their lives as they can, Apple has you covered as well. Amazon is running a $49 discount on the AirPods with the wireless charging case. Instead of plugging the case into a power adapter, you can simply throw them on a wireless charging pad. Other than that, these AirPods are similar to the $159 option. However, do note that you don’t get a wireless charger in the box. You will have to buy that separately.
Apple’s entry-level smartwatch is even more affordable on Prime Day. Apple has knocked $30 off the Watch Series 3’s regular $199 starting cost. Despite being three generations old, the Apple Watch Series 3 offers most of the features you’d want on a smartwatch. It has a heart rate sensor, onboard storage for music, and a swimproof design. The built-in dual-core processor enables the watch to track a host of your activities such as swims, runs, bicycle rides, and more.
Apple’s premium earbuds — the AirPods Pro are $50 cheaper on Prime Day 2020. The AirPods Pro’s highlight is their ability to cancel outside noise so that it doesn’t seep into your music playback or calls. In addition, they come bundled with a case that supports wireless charging. The sweat and water-resistant earbuds offer a ton of more features like hands-free voice commands and customizable gestures that let you perform actions by touching the buds.
Apple’s latest base iPad is already on sale. The new iPad is up for grabs for less than $300 after a $30 price cut. The 8th-gen iPad is powered by Apple’s high-end A12 Bionic chip which means it can run anything from resource-intensive games to creative apps without any hiccups. The premium chip also ensures the iPad gets updates and lasts for years to come. There’s a 10.2-inch Retina screen, an 8-megapixel rear, a 1.2-megapixel selfie camera, and support for Apple’s Smart Keyboard and Pencil.
Apple’s sleek Magic Keyboard for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is down to $330 from its original $349 price. Unlike the Smart Keyboard, the Magic Keyboard lets you place your iPad in an upright, levitating position for a more comfortable typing experience. The keys themselves are backlit and feature a standard chiclet design instead of the mushy feeling you get on the Smart Keyboard.
Apple is offering a $49 discount on the Wi-Fi-only variant of the iPad Mini. The iPad Mini’s most standout trait, as the name suggests, is its compact size which makes it ideal for playing games. There’s a 7.9-inch Retina display that can adjust its colors based on the room’s temperature and the high-end A12 Bionic chip. On top of that, you’ll find a fingerprint reader, an all-aluminum exterior, and a 7-megapixel front camera.
The iPad Mini and the iPad aren’t the only ones on sale. Here are the best Prime Day iPad deals.
Apple’s 2020 MacBook Air is available for $99 less on Prime Day. The entry-level notebook comes equipped with a 13.3-inch Retina display, 10th-gen Intel Core i7 processor, Touch ID for instant logins, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD storage. Further, it has a massive glass trackpad and a backlit keyboard. The MacBook Air, with its reliable mix of hardware, low cost, and lightweight build, is ideal for just about anyone who doesn’t need a lot of power, such as students or professionals who spend most of their time in documents.
If you need a more powerful Mac, the MacBook Pro, which is also on discount, may be a better fit for you. During Apple’s Prime Day 2020 sale, you can save $150 on the MacBook Pro’s higher-end model that features a 10th-gen Intel Core i5 chipset and 16GB of RAM. Plus, you get 1TB of SSD, a customizable strip of touchscreen above the keyboard for quick access to shortcuts, Touch ID, and a total of four USB Type-C ports.
Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro is on sale, too, and now available for $2,079 on Amazon. In addition to the larger screen, the 16-inch MacBook Pro offers 512GB of SSD storage and runs on the 9th-gen Intel Core i7 8-core processor. It also has a six-speaker system that’s considered one of the best in this form factor. Further, this variant features a dedicated GPU, the AMD Radeon Pro 5000M for creative work and games.
However, if for any reason you miss these deals, there are always Black Friday Apple deals to look forward to.
