Since its launch in 2020, the price of Apple’s newest iPad has frequently fluctuated between $ 300 and $ 330, so it’s a good idea to buy one around Prime Day before the price rises again. With its fast processor and trackpad and keyboard support, CNET’s Scott Stein calls the new and improved entry-level tablet “the best iPad value by far.”

The Apple Watch is essentially a portable iPhone, and the Series 6 might even outperform the iPhone in one respect: the screen stays on so you can look at it at any time. Also, it can measure your blood oxygen levels. Please note that the price may drop as low as $ 320 for some colors in the smaller 40mm size.

The baseline MacBook Air it’s more or less “always” on sale for $ 50 off at Amazon and elsewhere, and sometimes drops to $ 100 off ($ 900 total). But the best buy is the advanced model of the MacBook Air, which offers an improved M1 processor with an eight-core GPU compared to the seven cores you get in the base model, as well as twice the storage (512 GB vs 256 GB). ). You can get this model in gold with a discount of $ 100; silver and space gray offer half the savings.

Apple’s latest version of the MacBook Pro features the high-performance M1 chip, which runs faster than ever and makes Mac history with a 20-hour battery life. An aluminum heat spreader replaces the fan, allowing you to run applications without the system overheating or buzzing. The 512GB version typically sells for closer to $ 1,400 on Amazon, so at $ 1,349 it’s a good deal.

If you’re looking for the AirPod Pros’s noise-canceling feature but aren’t a fan of the internal design or price tag, you should jump to these Beats Pro Solo. These headphones, which originally retailed for $ 300, are now half off.
The inclusion of Apple’s H1 chip means that it will easily pair with Apple devices like AirPods. Android users can get this feature through the app. Note: It only charges through the Lightning port and does not come with a cable or adapter to be used as a wired headset. Previously a full price issue, but we can be more forgiving at this price. Lastly, these are also compatible with Apple Spatial Audio, released last week, if you subscribe to Apple Music.
