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, kicked off today.

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 $52 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.

Buy: AirPods Pro at $239.99

Note: Apple’s non-Pro AirPods are available for $129.99 as a Prime Day special.

Save $150 on the 2020 MacBook Air

Apple’s 2020 MacBook Air is the company’s most popular laptop by far, and it’s $150 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 $150 off the MacBook Air’s price ($100 will be taken off at checkout), which means its back down to its lowest price ever.

Save $120 on Beats Solo Pro Headphones

Apple hasn’t released over-ear headphones, but the Beats Solo Pros are the next best thing. They feature Apple’s H1 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 Solo Pros 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 $130 Prime Day discount brings the headphones down to their lowest price yet.

Save $27 on AirPods Max

The AirPods Max are Apple’s audiophile-worthy over-ear headphones, and they’ve received a modest, but surprising, discount for Prime Day. They were only released in December, which is why this deal really stands out. We’ve gotten to test the AirPods Max for ourselves, and enjoyed their mix of excellent audio quality, and advanced technical features. The headphones will instantly pair with any Apple device when you place them on your head, and charge with the same Lightning cable as the iPhone. If you’re happy with the convenience of using AirPods, but want even better sound, these are the headphones to get.

Save $70 On Apple Watch Series 6

The Apple Watch Series 6 is Apple’s latest smartwatch, and it’s the best one you can get right now. The new watch’s standout features are its blood oxygen sensor, which allows the watch to track another key health metric, and brighter, always-on screen. Like previous models, the Apple Watch Series 6 can be used as a health tracker, though Apple is quick to point out it should only be seen as a wellness device, not a health monitor. The watch can send and receive texts, lets you check out with Apple Pay, and even tells the time.

Save $50 on the 2020 iPad Pro

Apple’s latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro is $50 cheaper this Prime Day. This tablet has a large, high resolution “retina” display, 128GB of storage, and comes in two colors: silver, and space gray. The tablet has a set of 12MP and 10MP (megapixel) back facing cameras, and a 7MP front-facing camera, so you can take high resolution photos, or video conference with great results. Apple says you can get 10 hours of usage on a single charge, but your millage may vary based on your brightness settings and the apps you use. A $50 discount may not seem like much, but this is the one of the first times Apple’s new iPad has been on sale period.
