As news of the many Memorial Day sales land in your inbox, we’ll bet you’re keeping an eye out for one brand in particular: Apple. Between their signature AirPods and multifunctional iPads, ubiquitous smartphones and best-in-class laptops, Apple creates so many go-to gadgets — which is why it’s no wonder that you’re hoping to see a deal or two on their products. Here, we’ve rounded up the best deals on Apple items you’ll find this holiday weekend. Happy shopping!
Best Deal: 2020 Apple MacBook Air, $900 (was $999), amazon.com
This is the best price you’re likely to see on a MacBook Air, and given this model’s almost universal 5-star rating, it’s safe to say this is a very good deal. MacBooks are known for their extraordinary design, but don’t overlook this machine’s extensive memory, processing speed and ability to juggle dozens of simultaneously running programs with ease. Not to mention a battery that can last for up to 18 hours on a single charge.
You don’t have to take our word for it, though. This Amazon reviewer sums it up nicely: “It’s a fantastic computer in every sense of the word!”
Best Deal: 2021 Apple 10.2-inch iPad, $309 (down from $329), amazon.com
This slim, powerful tablet offers 64GB of storage, making it ideal for balancing several needs — from music to photo storage, gaming to streaming. Its camera has been hailed as game-changing and has won deep admiration for its Center Stage tracking feature, which follows the subject of a video call as they move to keep them in the frame. As one enthusiastic fan wrote, “I can tell you the front-facing camera upgrade is amazing, from the 1mp to 12mp you can notice a huge difference. And how the camera tracks you or you with your partner is a great feature we love!”

Best Deal: Apple AirPods Pro, $180 (down from $249), amazon.com
This is close to the lowest price we’ve ever seen for the Pro version of Apple’s beloved AirPods, which makes this a deal well worth jumping on. There are plenty of reasons why these tiny dynamos have such a loyal following, including their extraordinary noise-canceling abilities, transparency mode (so you don’t miss anything important), customizable and comfortable fit, and the ability to pause your music to take a call or have a chat without missing a beat. Little wonder, then, why one customer called them “ground-breaking,” saying in a 5-star review that “they set a new standard in this technology.”

The ultimate in wearable technology, the Apple Watch does it all — from sensing your health data (make sure you get those steps in!) to storing your music, helping you find your way with GPS, and fielding your texts, calls, and emails. Customers rave about the length of the battery life, the watch’s seamless integration with the iPhone, the helpfulness of the alarm settings, and, as in this review, the convenience of remaining hands-free: “Love that I can communicate using my watch instead of holding the phone,” wrote the happy reviewer.

Best Deal: Apple AirTag 4 Pack, $89 (was $99), amazon.com
If you’re not well versed in the joys of the AirTag, get ready to never lose anything again. This little disc comes in very handy, winning many loyal users since its debut — especially those who frequently misplace their belongings. Whatever you hook the tag onto is easily located with the use of your iPhone, whether that’s a pet, your car keys or your purse. Having four on hand means members of the family can easily find each other in a crowded place like this user did with her small children at an amusement park: “It gave me such peace of mind knowing we have a way to help find them if we were ever separated in such a busy place,” she says.

The Solo3 features the Apple W1 chip (which allows it to pair with media sources and accessories more seamlessly), as well as compatibility with iOS and Android devices. As for the battery life — three hours of play after only five minutes of charging is hard to compete with. Plus, with colors including rose gold, black and a vibrant cherry red, you’re sure to find a pair that suits your style.
