Each year, the Apple Computer Company typically holds anywhere from three to four conferences in which major announcements are made and new products are revealed to the public. Every March, the technology powerhouse puts on its Spring event, followed by its Worldwide Developers Conference in June, then the Apple Watch and iPhone-focused event in September, and the end-of-the-year conference in October. As important as these events are to iOS users, there’s another noteworthy annual occurrence that, this year, should have Apple enthusiasts excited. That’s, of course, when Amazon offers its 48-hour mega-sale on products across its entire inventory.
First held in 2015 to commemorate the online retailer’s 20th anniversary, Amazon’s annual Prime Day event offers substantial savings on an absolutely enormous array of offerings and, while not marked down quite as drastically as some of Amazon’s other Prime Day deals, this it does include a host of Apple’s latest gadgets, computers, and mobile devices. So, to help highlight some of the most significantly discounted products being offered this year, we’ve handpicked this guide to the best Prime Day Apple deals of 2021.
Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable
Representing the most substantial savings being offered this year on any Apple product, this meter-long magnetic charging cable for the Apple Watch is marked down by a whopping 35%, making now the perfect time to pull the trigger on purchasing a backup, or a spare for the car or office.
If you haven’t already experienced the convenience and ease-of-use offered by Apple’s Magic Keyboard, the company is offering its sleek, wireless, Bluetooth-connected keyboard — which is now offered in multiple finishes — for just $90.
Apple AirPods with Charging Case
This is the best deal that’s ever been offered on what are almost certainly the most sought-after entry-level true wireless headphones currently on the market. Though this budget-friendly version’s case isn’t wireless charging-compatible, these earbuds retain much of the high-end features found on the Pro-spec, at a much more attainable price.
Apple TV 4K
Now marked down to just $169, the Apple TV 4K not only offers HDR streaming in genuine 4K, but also comes loaded with a host of streaming apps, Dolby Atmos sound, and Apple’s cutting-edge A12 Bionic chip.
With a more-than-20% discount, there really has never been a better time to pull the trigger on Apple’s top-of-the-line true wireless earbuds. Equipped with 24-hours of battery life, these earbuds feature active noise cancellation with pass-through and Transparency modes, an adaptive EQ, and Siri connectivity.
Apple Watch Series 6
One of the steepest discounts being offered on Apple products this year is the brand’s Apple Watch Series 6. Produced in seven finishes, this GPS-enabled smartwatch is 20% faster than its predecessor and features a host of fitness and health-tracking features as well as an Always-On Retina display and Apple’s U1 Ultra Wideband chip.
A truly state-of-the-art mobile tablet, the ultra-lightweight iPad Air boasts a 10.9” Liquid Retina display with both True Tone and P3 wide color, an A14 Bionic chip, Touch ID unlocking, a 12MP back-facing camera, a 7MP selfie and FaceTime cam, and true wide stereo audio.
Considering that Apple very seldom offers discounts on its products, the fact that the company is offered more than $25 off of its latest flagship, active-noise-canceling wireless headphones is a pretty big deal. This discount also applies to all five colors in which the AirPods Max are offered.
MacBook Pro W/ M1 Chip
This deal sees Apple’s immensely popular workhorse laptop equipped with the company’s state-of-the-art M1 chip that’s being offered at an all-time low price with a nearly $200 discount off of the regular MSRP.
12.9” iPad Pro
While an 8% discount may not seem like all that much, the fact this deal is being offered on Apple’s latest and greatest, M1-chip-toting tablet is actually extremely noteworthy, with savings on the 256GB tablet that come out to an even $100.
Macbook Air W/ M1 Chip (512GB)
Now equipped with Apple’s cutting-edge M1 Chip, Apple’s MacBook Air offers solid computer power in a sleek and ultra-thin package that conceals an 8-core CPU, a 16-core Neural Engine, 8GB of unified memory,, Superfast SSD storage, and up to 18 hours of battery life.
iMac with Retina 5K Display
Currently being offered at a $100 discount, Apple’s all-in-one, standard-setting desktop work station packs a 27” Retina 5K display, a 3.1GHz 6-core 10th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, an AMD Radeon Pro 5300 graphics card, a pair of Thunderbolt 3 ports, and Ultrafast SSD storage, just to name but a few of this computer’s many features.
