Apple may have an iron grasp on the general population, but when it comes down to it, their products look good, work well, and stay cutting-edge — so of course, people love ’em. Whether you build your calendar around Apple eventsor you just want solid tech no matter the brand, Apple’s got you covered. Sure, they’re a little notorious for their high prices, but we’ve rounded up the best deals on iPads, AirPods, MacBooks, and more to help you save where you can. Check them out below.
The M2 MacBook Air ditched the tapered design to go for something more MacBook Pro-esque, and the result is more a more elevated laptop inside and out. It has a larger display, a lighter weight, a “dreamy keyboard” (according to Mashable tech reporter Alex Perry), 18 hours of battery life, and of course, impressive M2 performance. Sure, it’d be nice if it had more ports and a better refresh rate, but at $999, its lowest price ever, this deal is pretty tempting for anyone looking to upgrade their laptop.
The best iPad for most people is the classic one. We like the 9th generation because it doesn’t come with the bumped-up price of last fall’s 10th gen release, instead keeping things firmly in the entry-level tablet range. Despite not being the latest iteration, it still has up to 10 hours of battery life, a 10.2-inch Retina display, and more than enough processing power to get you through basic tasks. While this may not be the record-low $250 we saw this iPad at last week, $60 off still makes it the most affordable option by far (and we’ll keep our fingers crossed for another price dip in the meantime).
The iPhone 14 may have been a hot ticket item for the holiday season, but the iPhone 13 is by no means outdated. Unlike newer models, you won’t need a trade-in to score some savings, with this Verizon deal that’ll get you a free 13 mini if you open a new line at Verizon on an unlimited plan.

Chances are, streaming is probably your preferred method of watching TV these days. While the second-gen Apple TV may not be the brand’s latest and greatest, it’s still a solid option for those who want a streamer that’ll integrate seamlessly within their existing Apple ecosystem. You may not get as much storage in the base model or quite as fast a processor, but at $79, you’re saving a good chunk of change.
