Best Apple deals in August 2022

Tom's Guide logo Tom's Guide 6 days ago Louis Ramirez

Finding the best Apple deals used to be a challenge, but these days? Not so much. Retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart are currently offering some of the best Apple deals on all kinds of Apple kit. In fact, we're seeing some of the best Apple deals of all time right now. For instance, multiple MacBook Pro laptops are up to $200 off. Plus, the entry-level iPad is at its lowest price ever. 

Best Apple deals right now

On any given day there are multiple Apple deals available. Whether you're looking for cheap AirPods, iPad deals, MacBook deals, or something else entirely, you can save between $50 to $300 off your favorite Apple gear, provided you know where to look.

But keep an eye on those Apple Watch deals, because they're a little bit trickier to find. Discounted Apple Watches tend to sell out very fast, so while it's possible to find Apple deals on Cupertino's smartwatch, you're going to have to grab those savings without hesitating. 

We're all about saving money, so to help you with your Apple shopping, we're rounding up the best Apple deals in one spot. From Mac laptops to Apple iPads, here are the best Apple deals you can score right now. Also, make sure to check out our guide to the best Apple coupons.

Back to school and Apple deals

We expect to see more discounts as the summer progresses, but there are plenty of deals you can take advantage of now. Keep it locked to Tom's Guide for the best sales of the season.
