Prime Day Apple Deals 2021: MacBook Pro, AirPods Pro, Apple Watch
(Image credit: Apple)

You're running out of time to find very rare — but very real — Prime Day Apple deals. Amazon has trimmed a bit off the price of every category of Apple devices. And while some of those deals have dried up in the late hours of Prime Days, you can still find discounts on the most popular times if you know where to look.

For instance, Amazon has been running a very generous discount on the AirPods Pro for the last two days, but that deal seems to have expired. No matter: you can still get a discount on Apple's earbuds if you head over to Best Buy.

That's the way it is with some Prime Day deals, which will run through the rest of today even if all of these offers won't last that long. Some of the best deals on the iPad Pro 2021 and Apple Watch 6 have come and gone, but the 2020 M1 MacBook Pro is still $100 off, a huge deal. The Apple TV 4K is currently $10 off.

5 best Prime Day Apple deals right now

Prime Day Apple deals — best early sales


Better than Black ...

10.9" iPad Air (2020/64GB): was $599 now $519 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
The latest iPad Air sports a larger 10.9-inch display, speedy A14 Bionic CPU, and support for USB-C charging. Plus, with Magic Keyboard support, it's as close to a laptop replacement as you can get. Amazon has a tendency to "hide" this discount (which is $20 lower than on Black Friday), so make sure to check all iPad colors in case the sale has moved to a different model. Currently, all colors get the $80 discount except for the silver iPad Air.

10.2" iPad (32GB/2020): was $329 now $299 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
The 2020 iPad is in stock and on sale, in gold, silver and space gray. It features an A12 Bionic CPU, 10.2-inch (2160 x 1620), 8MP camera, 12.MP front camera, and an epic 12:57 battery life. Last year, this iPad hit $249 on Prime Day, but with Prime Day already one quarter done, we're not sure if it will hit that price again this year.

12.9" iPad Pro (256GB/2021): was $1,199 now $1,099 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
(Currently out of stock.) The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro sports Apple's M1 CPU for record-breaking speed and performance. It features a stunning 12.9-inch Liquid Retina display, which is the brightest iPad screen you can get. You also get 12MP wide and 10MP ultra-wide cameras and Wi-Fi 6 support. Amazon is taking $100 off the silver 256GB model, which makes this one of the best Prime Day iPad deals you'll find for Apple's new tablet — when it's available. 

7.9" iPad mini (256GB/2019): was $549 now $489 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
The iPad mini 5's snappy A12 Bionic processor makes it as fast as the 10.2-inch iPad 2020. Plus, it lasted up to 12 hours and 40 minutes on our battery test. (Currently out of stock; check back soon.) 

11" iPad Pro (128GB/2020): was $799 now $699 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
(Currently out of stock.) Despite not being the newest model, the 2020 iPad Pro offers a lot of power for your money. You get an 11-inch edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display, Apple's insanely fast A12Z Bionic CPU, and mouse/trackpad support. It features the same specs/hardware as the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but costs less if you don't need the larger screen.


Apple AirPods Pro: was $249 now $189 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
(Currently out of stock.) Amazon has the AirPods Pro on sale for $189. That's one of the lowest prices we've seen this year. The AirPods Pro offer both sweat and water resistance (IPX4 certified) along with built-in noise cancellation. With Amazon no longer running a discount on late Tuesday night, Walmart continues to sell AirPods Pro for $189 (opens in new tab).

Apple AirPods Pro: was $249 now $199 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Amazon was offering a more generous discount the last two days, but with that offer no longer available, Best Buy has a compelling alternative. You can still save $50 off the cost of Apple's wireless earbuds — still an excellent deal if not the lowest price we've seen.

AirPods w/ Wireless Case: was $199 now $159 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
(opens in new tab)
Amazon also has the AirPods with Wireless Charging Case for just $159. We've seen a lower $149 price during prime day, but a $40 discount is still one of the better Prime Day Apple deals for these premium buds. They come with a Qi-compatible case that allows for wireless recharging. 

AirPods Max: was $549 now $522 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
One of the best Prime Day Apple deals just surfaced at Amazon. For a limited time, Amazon has the AirPods Max on sale for $522, which is a rare discount. They feature a digital crown, active noise cancellation, and Spatial Audio, which uses head tracking to offer a surround sound experience. As of Monday evening, all colorways (except for the $529 sky blue AirPods Max) are available for $522.

AirPods w/ Charging Case: was $159 now $119 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
(Currently out of stock.) Looking for the cheapest Apple earbuds possible? Amazon has the AirPods with Standard Charging Case on sale for $119. That's $20 shy of their all-time price low and their second-lowest price ever. The headphones feature Apple's latest H1 chip for fast wireless connectivity with Apple devices. 

AirPods w/ Charging Case: was $159 now $119 @Target (opens in new tab)
Target is matching Amazon's sales price on the the AirPods with a charing case, and the earbuds are actually in stock right now at Target. Note that Target's sale end today (June 22).

Apple Watch

Apple Watch 3 (GPS/38mm): was $199 now $169 @ Walmart (opens in new tab)
The Apple Watch 3 is a great fitness tracker and smartwatch. The waterproof watch offers heart rate notifications, workout detection, Apple Music, and Siri support for a low price. It's now $30 under the Apple Store's price, but hurry, as this model goes in and out of stock. 

Apple Watches: $100 off w/ trade-in + free Apple Fitness @ Verizon (opens in new tab)
Verizon is taking $100 off all Apple Watches when you trade in your old watch. (You'll need to add a new data plan to your new Apple Watch to qualify for this deal). Plus, you'll get six free months of Apple Fitness Plus. It's one of the best Prime Day Apple deals we've seen from Verizon. 

Apple Watch 6 (GPS/40mm): was $399 now $329 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)
