While Black Friday and Cyber Monday tend to be popular times to get the best deals on Apple, spring is also a surprisingly opportune time save on the tech giant’s devices. Ahead of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and graduation, the best deals on Apple products at Amazon include the new Apple Watch Series 7 for $330 (its lowest price since its release last fall), Beats headphones for up to 50 percent off, AirPods Pro earbuds for $174, or iPads and MacBooks for $100 off, to name just a few deals.
Last September, adorers of Apple finally got long-awaited updates when the Cupertino-based company revealed the iPhone 13, Watch Series 7 and iPads, followed by the AirPods 3 and new MacBooks a month later. Though the latest versions of Apple’s devices have been out for months, that doesn’t mean the brand’s 2020 and earlier 2021 models are completely old hat — the most recent iPad Pro and MacBook Pro devices, for instance, are equipped with the M1 chip, which still delivers impressive performance when watching videos, playing mobile games, drawing or taking notes at school and work.
Last year’s product reveals also mean that their predecessors are now on sale for up to 10 percent off. That’s worth noting because while Apple itself rarely holds sales, Amazon is offering Black Friday-like deals on MacBooks, iPads, AirPods, Apple Watches and more right now.
If you’re in the market for a device upgrade and you’re not picky about having next year’s models (or you’re shopping for the best tech gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Dayi or graduation), we’ve rounded up some of the best Apple deals to shop online right now.
The Best Apple Watch Deals

2. Apple Watch SE (GPS, 40mm)
