With Amazon’s massive savings event coming up in less than a month, now is the time to shop these early Prime Day deals on new Apple tech.
1. $200 off: 2022 Apple MacBook Pro
If you need a reliable laptop for working remotely, surfing the web, or online shopping this holiday season, the 2022 Apple MacBook Pro is a solid choice. In testing, we were impressed with the laptop’s all-day battery life, fast performance, and good build quality.

2. $59 off: Apple iPad 9th Generation
When it comes to tablets, it’s hard to beat the Apple iPad. When we tested the 9th generation Apple iPad, we thought this model was a great buy, especially at its price point. With an additional $59.01 off, there’s no question it belongs in your shopping cart. This model offers great performance and serves as an incredibly versatile asset to your tech collection. Shop the early October Prime Day deal today to ring up at just $269.99.
3. $40 off: Apple Pencil 2nd Generation
Score amazing early Prime Day deals on Apple products, like the second generation Apple Pencil. Normally $129, you can get this Apple add-on for $40 off, as it’s available at Amazon for $89. This handy stylus is compatible with the iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th generation); iPad Pro 11-inch (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation); iPad Air (4th and 5th generation); and iPad mini (6th generation). Our experts also found that the Apple Pencil 2 is easier to charge than its earlier model and is a great tool for those marking up documents, editing photos, and more.
4. $249 off: Apple MacBook Air (2020)
School is in session, but it’s not too late to hunt for the best laptops. Right now, you can shop one of our all-time favorites—the Apple MacBook Air (2020)—for a whopping $249.01 discount, bringing it down to just $749.99 for a limited time. We love this Apple laptop for its 13 hour battery life, vibrant retina display, and Magic Keyboard. Now you can experience what our tester called the best laptop you can buy for yourself before the holiday shopping rush.
5. $30 off: Apple iPad Mini
If you love the iPad, but don’t quite need a full 10-inch screen, we recommend the iPad Mini. Right now, you can find it on sale starting at $469—$30 off its typical price tag. Our tech team calls it portable, easy to handle, and perfect for use with the Apple Pencil (on sale for $89). This deal is likely to sell out quickly, so act fast if you’re serious about getting an iPad Mini.
6. $50 off: Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation)
AirPods are king, and if you haven’t yet hopped on the bandwagon, now’s your chance to do so at a discount. For a limited time, Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) are marked down to $199, which is $50 off the retail price. Our editors love the AirPods Pro, calling them the best wireless earbuds you can buy thanks to their noise-canceling abilities, adaptive transparency mode, and sound and battery boost.
