Insider Reviews' All-Time Best list

We’ve already seem limited stock on the most affordable AirPods model, the version with a wired charging case. Wired charging AirPods are $119 for Prime Day and stock ran low after less than 24 hours. Luckily Walmart and Target are matching some sale prices for AirPods and other Apple products during Prime Day.

Many Prime Day deals are exclusive to Amazon Prime members, and you can sign up for a free 30-day trial if you don’t already have a subscription. Prime memberships start at $13 a month after the trial ends. For more Prime Day deals as they happen, you can check out our liveblog here.

An Amazon Prime subscription grants you access to a vast host of exclusive perks, including free two-day shipping on eligible items, entertainment options like movie and music streaming, and, of course, the ability to shop during Amazon Prime Day 2021 on June 21-22.

The best Macbook deals for Amazon Prime Day 2021

Starting in early 2020 Apple launched a number of new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models.

The key difference compared to older models, is that the latest MacBooks include Apple’s M1 processor, a chip that offers faster performance. We recommend the more affordable Air for most people, but the Pro is still a great buy for shoppers who crave a bit more power, slightly longer battery life, and superior speakers and microphones. You can read our full comparison of the latest MacBook Air and MacBook Pro here.

The newest MacBook Air (256GB) is back down to $900 with a coupon. That matches the lowest price we’ve seen so far, and it’s not clear if it will dip down any lower. 

You’ll also want to keep your eye on the price of the MacBook Pro with Apple’s M1 Processor, though we’ve seen issues with it being in stock on Prime Day.

The best Prime Day deals on AirPods and Beats headphones 

Prime Day 2021 is the first since the launch of the AirPods Max, Apple’s premium over-ear headphones. The AirPods Max saw a $50 discount just ahead of Prime Day, but now they’re $522, only about $27 off.

The AirPods Pro, standard AirPods, and AirPods with wireless charging case do have some Prime Day deals. You can check out our full breakdown of the best AirPods if you’re torn between different models.

The AirPods Pro have maintained a price around $200 from October 2020 through May 2021. The lowest we’ve seen them sell for was $169. The price isn’t quite as low for Prime Day 2021.

Amazon typically sells the AirPods with a wireless charging case for $150 to $170. While these AirPods are currently $160 on Amazon, Walmart has a better deal on the model for $146. Meanwhile the standard AirPods typically sell between $120 to $140. We recommend jumping on any Prime Day 2021 deal prices that are lower than those ranges.

Aside from Apple’s headphones, there are a number of Beats-branded headphones to keep an eye on during Prime Day 2021. These include the Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones.

The Solo3 headphones are perfect for commuting, studying, the gym, or zoning out during family road trips. They’ve got good sound, up to 40 hours of battery life, and five minutes of charging equals three hours of playback.

The best Apple Watch deals for Prime Day 2021 

There are a number of Apple Watch models to choose from but we recommend the 40mm, Series 6 (GPS) model thanks to its health features. We didn’t see the Series 6 fall in price during Prime Day 2020, but it fell by nearly $50 the following month. We recommend any deal that brings the Series 6 below $350.

Other Apple Watch models include the Series 3, the lower-cost alternative to the Series 6 with a wide range of bells and whistles, as well as the Apple Watch SE. The Apple Watch SE hasn’t dropped below $230 on Amazon while the Series 3 hasn’t fallen below its May 2021 price of $198.

The Apple Watch Series 6 is the best smartwatch Apple currently sells. It comes with top-of-the-line health features, a brighter always on display, and fast charging.

The Apple Watch Series 6 is the best smartwatch Apple currently sells. It comes with top-of-the-line health features, a brighter always on display, and fast charging.

With a recent Apple processor and many of the same features as the Series 6, the Apple Watch SE is a great budget-friendly option.

The best Amazon Prime Day deals on iPads 

Apple’s latest iPad Pro models, starting at $799, launched in May. While we have seen $100 off of models like the 11-inch iPad Pro, those deals appear to no longer be available during Prime Day 2021.

There are also older iPad models that have seen frequent sales on Amazon, including the 2020 iPad Air, the 2020 iPad, and the 2019 iPad Mini. These older iPad models lack Apple’s new M1 processor but they still make good buys for most people. The 2021 Pro models, on the other hand, are really only necessary for creative professionals that need top-notch performance.

The best Prime Day 2021 deals on iPhones 

Apple’s iPhones rarely get discounts on Prime Day. The new iPhones were just announced in October 2020, and carriers and retailers will likely discount older models to make way for the new ones. 

Unfortunately, Amazon doesn’t have many iPhone deals for Prime Day. However, Best Buy is offering a deal that takes $200 off the iPhone 12 Mini, although that’s contingent on a carrier activation with Verizon. 

Some older models to keep an eye on include the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro, the iPhone 11 Pro Max, the iPhone XS, and the iPhone XS Max. You can check out our guide to some of the best iPhones for every budget in 2021 ahead of your next iPhone purchase, as well.

The best deals on
Apple accessories for
Amazon Prime Day

Apple accessories for the iPhone, iPad, and other products can add up quickly. And now that Apple no longer includes power adapters in the iPhone’s packaging, there’s even more of an incentive to look for discounts on chargers and other accessories this Prime Day

We have yet to see any deals on high-profile accessories like Apple’s MagSafe Duo charger, which powers up an iPhone and Apple Watch wirelessly at the same time. But there are some discounts on 20-watt adapters that bring faster charging to the iPhone and Apple’s standard Apple Watch charger. 

The EarPods with a lightning connector — Apple’s wired headphones option — have been anywhere between $14 to $20 since May 2020. Any deal price lower than that would be worth jumping on during Prime Day, though Amazon is selling them for about $17.

Lost your AirPods or even your first set of Apple headphones? Apple has discounted its wired EarPods with the Lightning Connector to get you by.

The best Prime Day deals on Apple AirTags 

Since the AirTags launched in April 2021, Amazon has yet to substantially drop their price. The AirTags typically start at $29 and can help you find lost items with Apple’s FindMy app. 

You can always save $22 by purchasing the AirTags in a four-pack rather than buying four individually. This is our first time seeing a discount on this four-pack.

The AirTags might be too new to get a big discount on Prime Day, but we’ll keep this page updated with any deals if we see them. They’re also temporarily out of stock at Amazon.

The best Apple TV deals for Amazon Prime Day 2021

We haven’t seen major deals on Apple’s latest Apple TV models and accessories during Prime Day 2021, but there are nice discounts on older models.

This includes the Apple TV 4K (second-gen) and the Apple TV HD (fourth-gen) featuring the original Siri Remote (first-gen). While these models are still quality options for streamers, the newer versions include an improved Siri remote (also sold separately).

When sold for the same price, the newer Apple TV models are a better buy, but if the old versions is heavily discounted, they could present a better value.

The Apple TV HD is one of the better streaming boxes you can add to your TV. A new model is available with an updated Siri remote so you should only buy this older version if it’s on sale for a solid discount.

When is Prime Day?

Prime Day 2021 began on June 21 and runs through June 22. Prime members can take advantage of non-stop deals on a variety of products and services over the two-day sale.  

This year’s Prime Day comes roughly two months after Apple announced new iPads, AirTags, colorful iMacs, Apple TV 4K (second-generation), and more at its April event. It’s unclear what new Apple products will be on sale during Prime Day 2021, but expect to see deals on older models at the very least.

How to shop for Apple products

Before buying new Apple products on Prime Day, you should keep in mind that discounts tend to appear more often on previous-generation Apple devices. For example, a product like the Apple TV 4K (first-generation) is more likely to go on sale since the new second-generation model was just released in May 2021.

When comparing prices, you should also keep in mind that Apple offers discounted refurbished products on its own website, including previous generations of the MacBook Pro, iPhone, and more. Apple’s trade-in program can also give you additional money toward a refurbished product, as well, when you send Apple your old device.
