Prime Day Apple deals are among the most sought-after discounts during Prime Day. This year they promise to be extra enticing as there are many new Apple devices for Amazon to discount.

For instance, the newly announced MacBook Air M2 and MacBook Pro 13-inch M2 could see discounts that take from $50 to $100 off. Likewise, their predecessors — the M1 MacBook Air and M1 MacBook Pro — are bound to undergo epic discounts if not from Amazon, then from competing retailers like Best Buy or B&H Photo.

Excluding Macs, Prime Day Apple deals will also offer deep price cuts on some of our favorite Apple gear such as the Apple Watch 7, iPad mini, and AirPods. Bookmark this page and check back often for the best Prime Day Apple deals of the week.
