Adorers of Apple are waiting with bated breath for the tech giant’s next fall event, which typically takes place mid-September. It’s when the Cupertino-based company reveals the latest models of its iPhones, Apple Watches and AirPods, and it’s typically followed by an October event when new MacBooks, iMacs and iPads are debuted.
Apple hasn’t confirmed any event dates yet and the announcements are all speculation. But that doesn’t mean the brand’s 2020 and 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 and drawing.
The impending product reveals also mean that Apple’s current devices are now on sale for 5 to 20% off. That’s worth noting because while Apple itself rarely holds sales, Amazon is offering some of the lowest prices since Prime Day on MacBooks, iPads, AirPods, Apple Watches and more.
If you’re in the market for a device upgrade and you’re not picky about having next year’s models, we’ve rounded up some of the best Apple deals to shop online right now. While there’s a chance that prices could be slashed further during Labor Day weekend, you also run the risk of missing out on saving before inventory sells out.
