Deal hunters, do we have some news for you: Amazon Prime Day 2024 is coming sooner than you think! The 48-hour whirlwind sale kicks off July 16-17, 2024. If you’ve shopped Prime Day before, you know that Amazon drops prices on almost everything during this sale—from sneakers to swimsuits. What you may not know, though, is that Prime Day is also one of the best times of the year to buy Apple gadgets at a deep discount. Since Apple rarely does sales of its own, Amazon takes the opportunity to offer shoppers some truly rare and exciting discounts.

Shop Early Prime Day Deals

Amazon is already hinting at this year's offerings by pushing out early deals. Right now, lots of Apple products are on sale—so it's officially time to start stocking your cart. Whether you’re looking for AirPods (currently under $100!), a new Apple Watch to track your summer workout activity, or an iPad to take with you on vacation, these discounts are ones you won’t want to miss. Even the 2021 MacBook Pro, with a massive terabyte of storage, is currently $400 off.

Previous Amazon Prime Days (and holiday weekends like Memorial Day) have taught us that when Amazon drops the price on Apple tech, it tends to sell out—and sell out fast. If there’s a new gadget you’ve been eyeing and the price has dropped, don’t delay adding it to your virtual cart. Happy shopping!

Amazon Prime Day iPad Deals

10.2-inch iPad (9th Generation) (64GB, WiFi)

This iPad features the classic Apple home button on the bottom, which makes it easy to navigate. It has up to 10 hours of battery life and a Retina display with crisp visuals, so it’s a good choice for watching movies and streaming TV shows. This model charges with a Lightning cable, so you can use the same wire you use for your iPhone to keep it powered up. It’s the most affordable iPad on Amazon right now.

iPad Mini (6th Generation) (64GB, WiFi)

The iPad Mini is a great option if you’re on the go often and looking for a portable iPad. It might be small, but the mighty iPad Mini has an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display that offers a bright and clear picture. The battery lasts up to 10 hours, and the whole thing weighs just.65 pounds. It’s an easy tablet to toss in your bag and take on the go—and we expect this one to be even more steeply discounted in the weeks to come.

Watch Series 8 (GPS, 41mm)

The Apple Watch Series 8 features an exciting innovation. It’s able to track your temperature while you sleep and can estimate ovulation—a handy tool for those thinking about family planning. As long as you wear your watch to bed every night, it’s able to predict your fertile windows based on your health data. You’ll still have the sleep, heart rate, and blood oxygen monitors, as well as activity tracking and safety features like fall and crash detection.

Apple Watch SE (GPS, 40mm)

The most affordable Apple Watch Amazon has on sale right now, the SE is a budget friendly pick if you're looking to enter the world of wearables. It offers many of the same sensors as the more advanced models, like crash detection, a Retina display, and blood oxygen measuring. It’s a solid value, especially when on sale under $200. The wearable is water resistant up to 50 meters.

AirPods (2nd Generation)

The AirPods (2nd Generation) are the most budget-friendly AirPods on the market, coming in under $100 right now. The earbuds come with a charging case that powers up via a Lightning cable, so you’ll only need one wire for charging your iPhone and your AirPods. The headphones (which were our pick for best earbuds for Apple users) have up to 24 hours of playtime with the charging case.

AirPods Max

AirPods Max admittedly come with a high price tag, but they’re worth the cost if you wear headphones all day while working—they offer memory foam ear pads that won’t make your ears sore. We also love that they have impressive noise cancellation and transparency modes. We’ve seen AirPods Max consistently drop in price around major sales from Amazon, and it looks like Prime Day 2024 will be no exception.
