How To Save the Most on 2024's Prime Day Apple Deals

If you want a good deal on Apple products, Prime Day is worth shopping.
MacBook Air

Amazon's Prime Day will happen July 16-17, and Apple products typically see significant price reductions during the event. Prime Day has shown us some of the best prices ever on Apple's iPads, Apple Watches, AirPods, MacBooks, and more.

The best deals will likely be offered on the actual two days of Prime Day, but Amazon is already offering compelling discounts on select MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models, iPads, Apple Watches, AirPods, and more. Keep reading to see our list of the best deals we're seeing on Apple devices and accessories in the lead up to Prime Day.

Apple MacBook AirApple MacBook Air M3 13" Laptop (2024)
Price: 256GB for $899, 512GB for $1,129
Shipping: Free shipping

There are two models to choose from, and they're at least $170 less than Apple charges direct. If you're not already a Prime member, the savings are more than the cost of membership.

Apple MacBook Air M2Apple MacBook Air M2 13.6" Laptop with 256GB SSD (2022)
Price: $829
Shipping: Free Shipping

This deal is 17% off and drops the price to $829, which is the lowest price we've ever seen for this M2 model. It comes in four different colors and has a battery life of up 18 hours.

Apple Mac mini M2 DesktopApple Mac mini M2 Desktop with 256GB SSD (2023)
Price: $479
Shipping: Free Shipping

Here's another lowest-ever price for an Apple device after $20 off. And this one also happens to be the most affordable option for a new Apple computer. You'll need to add some peripherals, but you were probably wondering what to do with that old monitor anyway. The hoarding has finally paid off.

Apple Watch Series 9Apple Watch Series 9 GPS 41mm Smartwatch
Price: $299
Shipping: Free Shipping

This is yet another best price ever after 25% off. Just as the Series 8 dropped in price around this time last year, the Series 9 drops in Summer 2024. It's the circle of Amazon life. (Cue Elton John.)

Apple AirPods MaxApple AirPods Max
Price: $449
Shipping: Free Shipping

Take $100 off the AirPods Max, saving 18% off in the process. Is it the lowest we've seen? No, but it's the lowest we've seen for a new pair since Black Friday 2021! Not bad, eh?

Apple iPad10th-Gen. Apple iPad 10.9" 64GB WiFi Tablet (2022)
Price: $329
Shipping: Free Shipping

Take $20 off this current-generation iPad. There may have been slightly lower prices in limited colors for very short durations, but for all intents and purposes, this is the lowest we've seen on this model. Plus, it has the A14 Bionic chip, which performs up to 40% faster than the A12.

Apple AirPods2nd-Gen. Apple AirPods with Charging Case
Price: $80
Shipping: Free Shipping

If you've been putting off getting AirPods for some reason, now is the time get into the wireless headphone game. This is the lowest price we've seen at 38% off and totally worth the loss of vexatious headphone cord.

Apple MacBook Air M3Apple MacBook Air M3 15.3" Laptop with 512GB SSD (2024)
Price: $1,489
Shipping: Free Shipping

This one has the M3 chip, and it's even less than open-box offerings elsewhere. Amazon says this price is for a limited time, so we'll see where it lands on Prime Day. In any event, it's at least $10 off and much better than the $1,550 most sellers charge at time of writing.

Apple iPad Air6th-Gen. Apple iPad Air 11" Tablet
Price: $569
Shipping: Free Shipping

We're not sure how to say this, but the 6th-generation iPad Air just launched in May, so to find it at $30 off already is kind of a big deal. If this model had an apartment, it would contain several leather-bound books and smell of rich mahogany. The lowest prices are in Blue, Purple, and Starlight, but Space Gray is only $5 more. Plus, it features the M2 chip, Touch ID, and Apple Pencil Pro support.

Apple AirTagApple AirTag 4-Pack
Price: $80
Shipping: Free Shipping

These handy devices are $19 and 19% off for a 4-pack. And did you know they feature Bluetooth 5.0 and an internal speaker? They're also IP67 waterproof. It's like Lucius Fox invented these for Batman. (He didn't, but you could imagine what it'd be like if he did, amiright?) Pick up a set, and never lose your stuff again.

3rd-Gen. Apple AirPods3rd-Gen. Apple AirPods with Charging Case
Price: $140
Shipping: Free Shipping

Yes, the 2nd-generation AirPods are very affordable presently, but the 3rd-generation are also at the best-ever price after 17% off, and the improved sound and battery life are probably worth the extra cost.

What Is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is a two-day sale. Prime members have access to a variety of deals across multiple categories. Typically there are also more Lightning deals than normal. Amazon Music Unlimited, Prime Video, Audible, and other Amazon services frequently have other special promotions as well.

What Should You Expect When Shopping for Apple Deals?

Apple's own products are typically very popular on Prime Day, including the iPads, Apple Watch, AirPods, MacBook Air, and accessories. However, there have also been plenty of Apple-compatible items available during the two-day event at drastically reduced prices. For example, look for wireless charging stations for your multiple Apple devices, power banks, car stereos with ApplePlay, car chargers, and tablet/laptop stands.

Prime Day 2023 Apple deals included discounts of up to 54%, with most reductions on AirPods, MacBook Air laptops, Apple Watch, and after market accessories falling in the 25% range. The Apple Watch Series 8 GPS 41mm Sport Watch, which features ECG monitoring, was at its best price ever at $280 new, which was about 30% off. The Apple MacBook Air M1 13.3" Laptop with 256GB SSD (2020) also saw its lowest ever price of $750, which was about 25% off list. Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earphones, featuring the Apple H1 chip, were $140, which was also the lowest price ever. (At the time of writing, that's $20 less than you'd pay elsewhere.)

How Much Can You Save on Apple Products During Prime Day?

If past trends continue in 2024, you can expect reductions of around 20% to 30% on Apple products during Prime Day, which is even better than Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounts we've seen in recent years. For example, we saw $119 off the Apple Watch 8 on Prime Day, which turned out to be $19 better than the Black Friday and Cyber Monday prices. Beats Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earphones were $110 off the original price, which was $10 better than the Black Friday/Cyber Monday price. The Apple MacBook Air M1 13.3" Laptop with 256GB SSD (2020) was $249 off list on Prime Day, which was $50 lower than it was later in the year on Black Friday. Clearly, Prime Day is a special day for Apple products, and if you'll be in the market for a new Apple Watch, headphones, or laptop, they are typically the two best days of the year to buy.

Do You Need a Prime Membership to Shop?

A Prime membership is required to take advantage of Prime Day deals. If you're not already a Prime member, you can get a free 30-day trial. (You'll pay $14.99 per month, or $139 per year after the trial.) You can also get a 3-month Prime membership for $7.50 per month.
