Today’s Best Apple Deals

Our Favorite Apple Deals
Apple Watch Series 5

Smartwatches never became the next smartphones, but the Apple Watch is the one smartwatch that has managed to enjoy widespread popularity. Apple updated its WatchOS-powered smart wearable last year, releasing the excellent — and pricey — new Apple Watch Series 5. The Series 5 (which is actually the sixth iteration of the Apple Watch, despite its name) refines everything we loved about previous models, bringing the design to near perfection with great software, a vibrant always-on display, and an excellent set of health and fitness-tracking features. We’ve also seen some fantastic discounts lately that bring it closer in price (or even cheaper than) the Series 4, making now the time to buy the Apple Watch Series 5 if you’ve been on the fence and waiting for a deal.
Apple 11-Inch iPad Pro (2018)

Apple released a new iPad Pro this year, and aside from incremental hardware changes, the new 2020 models didn’t really re-invent the wheel. That’s excellent news for deal-hunters, as now’s a fine time to score the still-great 2018 iPad Pro at a discount as retailers start dumping their old stock (although we don’t know when Apple will discontinue these). When it was first on the market, our review team named the last-gen iPad Pro the best tablet that money can buy thanks to its superb touchscreen, blazing fast performance, and great slimmed-down design. It’s an even easier sell at current prices following the release of the newer (and more expensive) 2020 iPad Pro.
Apple iPhone 11

The iPhone 11 series is Apple’s current flagship smartphone line, and with it, Apple continued its three-phone release strategy by rolling out the iPhone 11 along with the higher-end iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. The iPhone 11 is the most affordable of the three (it retails for around $700 right now, in contrast to the $1,000 sticker price for the 11 Pro), and it’s a winner. It looks great, feels great, offers snappy performance, and boasts an excellent new camera module. The iPhone 11 is truly the everyman’s smartphone, and as the current-gen iPhone, it also has the benefit of offering the best carrier discounts and rebates at the moment.
Apple MacBook Air (2017)

With modern laptops getting slimmer and slimmer, the MacBook Air is almost redundant now, but it still does its thing very well. That should come as no shock considering that Apple wrote the book in super-slim laptops with the MacBook Air, and this last-gen model would still make for a great featherweight work machine in 2020: The standard model has an Intel Core CPU paired with 8GB RAM (perfectly respectable hardware for work, browsing, and streaming) along with a 128GB solid state drive. One thing we didn’t like was its launch price, but that has naturally dropped since its initial release and current deals make it much more attractive as the cheapest entry point into the MacBook ecosystem.
