UPDATE: Jul. 3, 2024, 10:35 a.m. EDT This post has been updated with the latest pricing and availability on Apple products ahead of Prime Day.

Early Prime Day Apple deals to watch:


13-inch m3 macbook air

purple ipad air

starlight 45mm apple watch series 9

blue airpods max

Prime Day may not be until July 16 and 17, but plenty of Apple deals that are already live, both at Amazon and other retailers.

To be clear, these deals aren’t officially affiliated with the sale — they simply happen to be live in the weeks leading up to Prime Day. While Prime Day deals often do bring products — even Apple products — down to record low prices, it can also be a particularly hectic time to shop as people fight for hot-ticket items before they’re sold out.

Plus, shopping early doesn’t mean you’re getting subpar deals: the M1 iPad Air is nearly $200 and at a new record-low price, while the 45mm Series 9 is nearly $100 off. Plus, the new iPad Airs and Pros are at record-low prices.

As we wait for Prime Day Apple deals to officially go live, we’ll be keeping our eyes out for early deals and updating this post as they crop up. Until then, check out some of the best Apple deals ahead of Prime Day 2024:

iMac and MacBook deals

Why we like it

The MacBook Air is known for being the perfect laptop to take on the go, but with M3 power and the ability to connect up to two external displays (with the lid closed), this generation of the Air is proving that it’s just as good living at your desk. If what you need the most in a laptop is versatility, and you’re not regularly taking on more intensive tasks like video editing, this is a great pick. If you want to save a bit more money, though, we recommend holding out a bit longer until Prime Day — this laptop recently hit an all-time low price of $129, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed for its return.

Why we like it

Check out our full review of the M1 iPad Air.

Is this tablet a couple of years old? Yes. Is that why it’s getting this $200 markdown? Probably! The best part is, not only is this the lowest price this iPad has ever hit, but an M1-powered tablet is hardly past its prime, still offering plenty of power for gaming and note-taking. While we do wish this iPad offered a little more storage space, if you find yourself considered that you’ll run out too quick, you can always grab the 256GB M1 iPad Air, which is on sale for $499.99 (still sitting near $100 under the M2 Air’s MSRP).

Mashable Deals

What better way to enjoy the exceptional display brightness of the Series 9 than with the largest display you can possibly get? Mashable Senior Editor Stan Schroeder appreciated that this watch introduced Double Tap but wrote in his review that the 2000 nit max brightness and minimum of one nit make this watch incredibly functional to use in the middle of a sunny day, or in the darkness of your room in the early morning. Apple Watches haven’t introduced a ton of exciting upgrades over the years, but we do like that with this sale price, you can grab the 45mm Series 9 for about $70 cheaper than you would the 41mm Series 9 at full price.

Why we like it

Check out our full review of the Apple AirPods Max.

To be blunt, we don’t consider the AirPods Max one of the best headphones out there anymore. They’re missing key features, like a power button and a 3.5mm audio jack. Though they still sound great, they’re way overpriced in 2024. However, we understand that some Apple fans treasure the only over-ear AirPods, so when they get a good discount, we make sure to note it. At $449.99, they’re about $20 away from their lowest price ever, but it’s been quite a while since they’ve hit that price. Even catching them at nearly $100 off can be trickier these days, so if you’re not trying to wait and see if Apple will announce new and improved AirPods Maxes later this year, this is a decent time to buy.
