4th of July Apple sales are among the most anticipated deals of the summer. In celebration of Independence Day, retailers from Amazon to Walmart offer steep price cuts on all things Apple. 

This year's best 4th of July Apple sales are now live and practically all Apple devices are on sale. Deals are particularly enticing this year as there are two new Apple devices in the mix — the new MacBook Air 2022 and the MacBook Pro 2022.
