Apple never holds sales — even on Black Friday or Cyber Monday — but Amazon has slashed the prices on its computers, tablets, and headphones as part of Prime Day, kicking off on July 12 through July 13.

Amazon’s blowout annual sale is a great time to shop for everything from appliances and mattress to speakers and turntables, but these Apple deals stick out in particular. Some of these discounts bring Apple’s gear down to its lowest price ever.

Remember: the best Prime Day deals are reserved exclusively for Amazon Prime members. If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, you can get a 30-day free trial right now which will get you access in time for Prime Day.

Save $50 on AirPods Pro


The AirPods Pro are Apple’s newest headphones, and they’re the best totally wireless earbuds we’ve used. They get five hours of music playback, and automatically recharge when placed in their case. The AirPods Pro main feature is active noise cancellation, which uses microphones to block outside sounds from reaching your ears. This feature is rare in earbuds, and works really well. Amazon’s $50 discount brings the AirPods Pro down to their lowest price ever.

Note: Apple’s non-Pro AirPods are available for $169.98 as a Prime Day special.

Save $100 on the 2020 MacBook Air


Apple’s 2020 MacBook Air is the company’s most popular laptop by far, and it’s $100 off on Prime Day. It has a 13.3-inch screen, 8GB or RAM (memory), 256GB of storage, a 720P HD webcam, and an M1 processor. It comes in three colors: rose gold, silver, and space gray, so you can match your iPhone or iPad. The Air’s key feature is its small size; it weighs 2.8 pounds, and is only .16-inches thick at its thinnest point. Amazon knocked $100 off the MacBook Air’s price ($100 will be taken off at checkout), which means its back down to its lowest price ever.

Save $127 on Beats Studio3 Headphones


While Apple has their own over-ear headphones, the Beats Solo Pros are the next best thing. They feature Apple’s W1 chip, which reduces lag when they’re paired with Apple devices, although they can be paired to any phone, tablet, or computer over Bluetooth. Beats says the Studio3s get 22 hours of battery life per charge, and offer three hours of music playback when you plug them in for 10 minutes. Like the AirPods Pro, the Beats Solo Pros support active noise cancellation, so you can tune out the world when you listen to your music. This $127 Prime Day discount brings the headphones down to their lowest price yet.
