Since its release in 2020, Apple’s newest iPad has frequently fluctuated in price between $300 and $330, so it’s a good idea to grab one around Prime Day before the price surges again. With its speedy processor and compatibility with trackpads and keyboards, CNET’s Scott Stein calls the new-and-improved basic tablet “the best iPad value by far.”

For just under $200, you can invest in a pair of Apple’s top-of-the-line wireless earbuds. The sound is crisp, the fit is snug and the noise cancellation really works. Read our AirPods Pro review.

The Apple Watch is essentially a wearable iPhone, and the Series 6 might even have the iPhone beat in one respect: The screen stays on so you can glance at it anytime.

The baseline MacBook Air is more or less “always” on sale for $50 off at Amazon and elsewhere, and sometimes dips down to $100 off ($900 total). But the better buy is the step-up MacBook Air model, which offers an improved M1 processor with an eight-core GPU versus the seven cores you get in the base model, as well as double the storage (512GB vs. 256GB). You can get this model in gold at a $100 discount; silver and space gray offer half the savings.

Apple’s newest iteration of the MacBook Pro boasts the high-performing M1 chip, running faster than ever and making Mac history with a 20-hour battery life. An aluminum heat spreader replaces the fan, allowing you to run applications without the system overheating and whirring. The 512 GB version normally sells closer to $1,400 on Amazon, so at $1,300 it’s a pretty good deal.

If you’re looking for the noise-canceling feature of AirPod Pros but are not a fan of the in-ear design or price tag, you gotta jump on these Beats Pro Solo. Originally retailed at $300, these headphones are now half off.

The inclusion of Apple’s H1 chip means that it will pair easily with Apple devices just like AirPods. Android users can get this feature via app. Note: It only charges via Lightning port and doesn’t come with a cable or adapter to be used as a wired headset. Previously an issue at full price, but we can be more forgiving at this price. Lastly, these are also compatible with Apple Spatial Audio, released last week, if you happen to subscribe to Apple Music.

Beats’ Powerbeats Pro earbuds are as low as $160 for the red or yellow colors. They’ve been holding pretty steady at those price points, but note that we saw them hit $150 earlier, which is just about the lowest we’ve seen for them.

There’s currently a $120 discount on the 40mm Product Red Apple Watch Series 6. In addition to an always-on display and ECG, the Series 6 monitors blood-oxygen levels (though you shouldn’t expect medical-grade results there). Note that there is very limited supplyRead our Apple Watch Series 6 review.
