Best Prime Day 2019 Apple Product Deals

If you're in the market for some new Apple tech, Amazon Prime Day is one of the best times of year to upgrade. While Apple tends to hold its prices at its own online store, prices at Amazon do fluctuate. Now Apple and Amazon have become pals again and Apple products are listing for sale at Amazon, we hope to see plenty of price drops come Prime Day.

Strap on the Savings: Apple Watch

Apple Watch has come a long way since its 2015 introduction and the latest-generation models are pretty powerful wrist-worn computers at this point. They have super-accurate heart rate and fitness sensors so are great for workout buffs and provide convenient, glanceable information for those wanting to keep their phone in their pocket more often. Models with cellular connectivity also enable you to go completely phone-less.

While not the newest model on the market, but the Series 3 probably represents the best deal right now starting at $199. It's a total steal that is capable of tracking your health and fitness with its precise movement and heart rate sensors, and can sync all of it to your iPhone. It also has built-in GPS for tracking outdoor runs and cycling workouts and is water resistant to 50 meters making it perfect for swimmers. You'll also get the notifications you want from your iPhone right on your wrist.

From $199

What's a computer?: iPad

For many people, the iPad has replaced their traditional laptop computer and enabled them to go tablet-first. All iPad models are super thin and light and the wealth of iOS apps makes it easy to do pretty much anything with the device. There is an iPad to suit all use cases — from the super-portable iPad mini to the powerhouse 12.9-inch iPad Pro — with price points to suit all budgets, too.

The 6th-gen iPad has been on the market for just over a year now and has seen a couple of price drops in its time at Amazon. Right now it's at one of its best prices to date with $80 or more off.

From $249

Wireless wonder: AirPods

AirPods are a cultural phenomenon and sparked a true wireless earphone revolution. The wire-free 'buds don't often get discounted but, given their popularity, we'd hope to see them featured during Prime Day.

Image


The newest AirPods with Qi-enabled Wireless Charging Case are down to $179.99 at Amazon currently. Considering they've not been around long, this is probably the best deal you'll get right now with $19 off.

$179.99 $199 $19 off

Light as air: MacBook Air

The MacBook Air has been a mainstay of Apple's laptop lineup for years, and for good reason. Its perfect blend of portability and power makes it ideal for day-to-day computing and led it to be the most popular laptop in the lineup.

Image


The MacBook Air got a full redesign in late-2018. Going thinner and lighter than before and gaining a beautiful Retina display for the first time, it transformed into the modern Mac portable many had been clamoring for. It's currently $100 off in a few configurations, too.

$1,099 $1,199 $100 savings

Big and beautiful: iMac

If you want a desktop workstation, the iMac is an all-in-one machine that gets you the most Mac for your buck. With a 21.5- or 27-inch display and powerful internals, an iMac is the perfect machine for your office.

Image


There are various iMac configurations available and your use case and budget will dictate what you'll need to spend. However, several models are discounted at Amazon with prices starting from $1,400 for the latest iMac models. It's possible we'll see steeper discounts next month.

From $1,399.99

Budget excellence

The all-new iPad Air now has a 10.5-inch display along with Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil support. The base-spec model is $30 off right now with higher-spec models having even larger savings. Considering the device is so new, we might not see a better deal any time soon.

Model variety

All the currently available iPhone models can be purchased at Amazon, but they are all sold exclusively for use with Simple Mobile. Prices are unlikely to change come Prime Day, but it's always worth checking on the deals in the run up. Besides, some of the older models are now super affordable.

MacBook Pro with Touch Bar

Portable power

If you want Apple's most powerful portable Mac offering, the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar currently starts at $1,710 which is a 5% savings. The prices vary regularly, so hopefully the discounts will ramp up come Prime Day.

Make it your own

Your Apple product isn't complete until you personalize it with accessories. From phone cases and watch bands to headphones and Apple Pencil, there's a load of official Apple gear to choose from on Amazon.

How to get the Best Apple Product Deals

Apple products have historically held their prices all year round with very few promotions to speak of. However, in more recent times, we have seen infrequent sales on Apple gear — especially when it is sold by a third-party retailer rather than Apple itself. Now Apple products are available on Amazon, we see regular savings and we expect a bunch of Apple products will be featured during Amazon Prime Day. Shopping seasons like Prime Day and Black Friday are the best times to take advantage of these deals.

We, of course, keep track of current and historic pricing for Apple products so we can recommend the best deals to you as they become available. Be sure to bookmark this page if you're on the hunt for a discounted Apple product, especially as we head toward Amazon Prime Day.

Unless you are in desperate need for a new Apple device today, you may want to wait for Prime Day to bring some potential savings. Visit our Prime Day Hub to keep up to date on all the deals and everything else Prime Day related.

A more secure grip

Personally, I don't get the appeal of these; but they are wildly popular. When I worked at the Apple Store, these were probably the most requested item we didn't carry. Get a better grip on your phone with this baby, and use it as a kickstand to watch videos, too. I do like that they come in so many cool designs.
