The best Apple deals we’ve seen so far

Best Apple Watch deals
The Apple Watch Series 7 was the top Apple Watch model when it was introduced in 2021, and it’s still an outstanding smartwatch in 2023, with blood O2 measurement and ECG added to its slew of health-tracking features that impressed us when we tested it previously, and a big, always-on screen that we preferred over previous generations. This deal applies to the 45-millimeter case size that’s ideal for larger wrists; it comes in graphite stainless steel and a “Storm blue” sports band.
$59.01 OFF COUPON
The latest model of Apple Watch, the Series 9 brings an updated SiP (system-in-a-package) that provides faster app opening, smoother performance and on-board Siri. We tested this model in our Testing Lab and found that it lived up to its faster-and-smoother billing, and we appreciated its brighter screen and the handy double-tap gesture that lets you interact with it while your hands are full. This deal is on the svelte 41-millimeter case size in silver or dark graphite aluminum.
Best Apple AirPods deals
When we tested the second-generation AirPods Pro with USB-C charging, they wowed us with their powerful noise cancellation and handy transparency option for busy streets. Their variety of soft ear tips fit very comfortably during our testing, and they lasted over eight hours of nonstop play without needing to go back in their charging case.
The over-ear Apple AirPods Max are easily some of the best headphones we’ve ever tested. We loved how well they adapted to different styles of music and how they held their wireless connection even when we walked into a different room. The noise cancellation is outstanding, too, and the mesh headband felt particularly comfortable during our testing.

Best iPad deals
The iPad Air, which features the mighty M1 processor, is a great combination of power and features that won’t break the bank. During testing, we found the fifth-generation Air to be more than capable of handling as many as 15 apps at once and even managed to do light video editing on our test machine with barely a fraction of a second of lag. Thin but rigid, we didn’t feel it flex at all while testing.
If you’re interested in a more compact tablet that won’t feel awkward curling up in bed with, but that can still do work when necessary, the sixth-generation iPad Mini is for you. The Mini boasts a universal USB-C port so it can share flash drives, docks and accessories with all kinds of other computers and tablets, plus it’s Apple Pencil-compatible for handwriting notes or drawing. This Wi-Fi + cellular model comes with 256GB of internal storage and is powered by the A15 Bionic processor.

Best Macbook deals
Apple’s newest consumer laptop adds a gorgeous, super high-definition 15.3-inch screen to its winning MacBook Air design. With surprisingly great speakers for a thin-and-light notebook, plus a separate MagSafe charging port, two USB-C ports, upgraded FaceTime front camera and the powerful M2 chip, the 15-inch Air might be the Apple laptop you’ve been waiting for. It comes in four colors: midnight, starlight, silver or space gray.
Despite being replaced by the 2021 M2 model, the chisel-thin M1 MacBook Air remains more than capable for everything from multiple-tab web apps to light video editing. Its revolutionary M1 processor makes quick work of tasks, like video encoding that used to take hours, while still maintaining excellent battery life. It’s available in silver and space gray.

Who has the best Apple Cyber Monday deals?
Amazon usually offers the most reliable Cyber Monday deals, followed by the other big retailers like Walmart and Best Buy. Don’t forget cellphone providers like Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile, who may have deep discounts not just on iPhones but also iPads, Apple Watches and accessories. Apple itself isn’t known for major discounts on its website or at the Apple Store, but you might get an Apple gift card with your purchase.
Which Apple products have the biggest discounts on Cyber Monday ?
Apple’s iPads are probably the most likely to receive big discounts this Cyber Monday, as Apple wants to move inventory, especially of its iPad Mini, Air and Pro models. We’re also likely to see discounts on previous models of Apple Watches, especially the Apple Watch 8 and Ultra first-generation, since the Series 9 and Ultra 2 just came out. MacBook Air laptops are also looking good for discounts this shopping season.
Don’t look for iPhones to go on sale, at least not from the big-box retailers. Instead, check your cellular provider. That said, older models, like the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13, automatically reduced in price when the iPhone 15 line came out, which makes them better deals right now.
How to find the best deals on Apple products
We’ll be updating this page frequently throughout the Cyber Monday shopping event. For more Cyber Monday Apple deals, check Mac blogs and Apple news sites, which often have their own sections dedicated to Apple discounts, as well as couponing and smart shopping sites.
