One of the best times to save money on AirPods, iPhones, iPads,  and other Apple devices is just around the corner — Prime Day! That means there will be two days of lowest prices ever and massive deals so that you can save on the tech that you want.

It's always tricky to find exactly what you want during the sale, of course, which is where we come in with our helpful deals roundups. Here, you'll find all the best prices around on the best Apple devices — and, in some cases, there are deals before the sale has even begun.

So as July 16 and 17 roll around, here are the best Apple Prime Day deals that you can buy today.

Q&A

When is Prime Day?

We have a date for the sale now: July 16-17.

Do I need a Prime Account?

Yes, for the very best deals of the sale, you will need an Amazon Prime account. You can get a 30-day free trial for the sale if you've never been a Prime Member before, so that's well worth bearing in mind. Make sure not to get the trial too early, however — you want to make sure that you get it during the sale! Best to wait for the official dates to arrive before taking the plunge.
