Best Apple deals in May 2020

Best Apple deals

Finding the best Apple deals isn't as hard as it used to be. Retailers like Best Buy, B&H Photo, Amazon, and Walmart are typically our go-to stores for the best Apple deals. Even new Apple devices, like the highly anticipated 2020 MacBook Pro, tend to see discounts just hours after their release.

In fact, on any given day, retailers will have one — if not multiple — Apple deals to choose from. From AirPods deals to iPad deals, you can save from $50 to $300 off your favorite Apple gear if you know where to look. 

Apple Watch deals, on the other hand, are a little trickier. Many retailers are still running low on Apple Watch inventory. So while it's possible to find excellent Apple deals on the Apple Watch, you'll have to act fast when you spot a deal that fits your budget. 

We're all about saving money, so to help you with your Apple shopping, we're rounding up the best Apple deals in one spot. From Mac laptops to Apple iPads, here are the best Apple deals you can score right now. (Also, make sure to follow our iPhone deals coverage for the best discounts on Apple's smartphones).

You can make the transaction online or simply bring your old iPhone to an Apple Store to receive your credit instantaneously.
