The Black Friday shopping extravaganza may be over, but Cyber Monday deals are in full swing, with tons of deals across every product Apple sells. Here are our top picks after sorting through all of the remaining sales:
Apple’s AirPods are always a popular sale item over the holiday shopping season, and this year you can find deep discounts across the entire line. But the standout deal is the new second-gen AirPods Pro for $200, a savings of 20 percent on a device that only just arrived in September. And you’re getting a lot for your money: Better sound, better noise cancellation, better battery life, and a better case.
When Apple began selling the 10th-gen iPad in October, it kept the old iPad around at the same $329 price. But for Cyber Monday, Amazon is selling it at a significant 18 percent discount, bringing it down to $270 and matching the best price we’ve ever seen. It may have an old design, but for kids, grandparents, and anyone else in need of a good inexpensive tablet, it’s a great option.
Apple’s second-gen Pencil is compatible with nearly every iPad it sells—Air, mini, and Pro—but it rarely goes on sale. Today, however, Amazon is knocking an impressive 30 percent off the $129 MSRP, bringing it down to a reasonable $89. Even if you’re not an artist, it’s worth picking up at this price.
The newer M2 MacBook Air is a superior machine with a bigger and brighter display, new design, and faster chip, but the M1 MacBook Air is still a fantastic computer, especially when you take 20 percent off the $999 price. For most people, we think it’s the best way to spend $799 on a new laptop.
The M2 MacBook Air has a completely new design that looks more like a MacBook Pro than a MacBook Air. It also got a $200 price hike to go with it, but this Cyber Monday deal wipes away the increase, with $200 off the Space Gray model at Amazon. It’s a bummer that the other color options are $50 more, but we love the classic and clean Space Gray anyway.
The Ultra model is the newest addition to the Apple Watch lineup, and it lives up to its name, with a 49mm display, 36-hour battery life, titanium rugged design, 1000X water resistance, and a slew of fitness upgrades. It’s not for everyone, but if you’ve been wanting to buy one, today’s $739 price, knocking $60 off the MSRP, is a great reason to take the plunge.
For the Apple fan who has everything, the Studio Display is a fantastic addition to your setup, with a gorgeous design, 5K display, built-in webcam, and Spatial Audio support. The savings here aren’t huge, but it so rarely goes on sale, even $100 off is something to celebrate.
