I reviewed the first iPhone. And the first MacBook Air. Yup, I've been covering Apple for over 20 years, so when I say these Apple Cyber Monday deals are worth your time and money, they absolutely are. But time is running out.
iPhone SE (2022): was $429 now $35 @ AT&T
The cheapest iPhone just got even cheaper over at AT&T, with the carrier knocking the price down to $0.99 a month. The only catch is you need to sign up for an unlimited plan to qualify, and pay the usual $35 activation fee. This deal has been extremely popular, and the iPhone SE remains a good pick for those who like a device that's easy to use with one hand.
iPhone 15 Pro Max: $830 off w/ trade-in + unlimited @ T-Mobile
You can get the iPhone 15 Pro Max for just $369 on T-Mobile, so long as you trade in what T-Mobile calls "an eligible device" and sign up for either the $100/month Go5G Next or $90/month Go5G Plus plan. T-Mobile gives you bill credits over the 24 months of your contract. I really liked this handset in our iPhone 15 Pro Max review, especially its improved zoom and the helpful new Action button.
Apple AirPods Pro 2 USB-C (2023): was $249 now $234 @ Amazon
The new version of the AirPods Pro 2 deliver 2x more noise cancellation that the original model, and this 2023 version supports USB-C charging Apple's new lossless audio protocol that will debut with the Vision Pro mixed-reality headset in 2024. They also offer Personalized Spatial Audio with dynamic head tracking for a more immersive audio experience. And we found the sound quality to be even better than the previous Lightning model.
Price check: $249 @ Best Buy | $269 @ Walmart
MacBook Air 13.6" (M2/256GB): was $1,099 now $949 @ Best Buy
The MacBook Air M2 is one of our most recommended laptops because it's remarkably light and thin yet sports a vibrant 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display, a speedy Apple M2 CPU w/ 8-core GPU, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD and a great 1080p FaceTime camera. In our MacBook Air M2 review we praised its performance and battery life. Yes, the MacBook Air M1 is cheaper at $749, but this is a better long-term value.
