Amazon Prime Day: The Best Apple Deals on Day 1

Amazon's annual Prime Day event has officially kicked off today, with hundreds of deals expected to appear through tomorrow evening. Yesterday we began tracking discounts on Apple devices like the AirPods, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

Today, we'll share these discounts and more happening during Prime Day. In addition to Prime Day, many retailers are introducing their own opposing mega sales, so there will also be even more opportunities for discounts at Target, Best Buy, and more.

Many of the Prime Day deals we'll be sharing below are time sensitive, so if you're interested be sure to browse and purchase quickly. As usual, you'll also need an Amazon Prime membership to gain access to the sales.

Inventory clearing day. As always folks, be careful that it wasn't cheeper before today as a lot of prime deals are a wee bit sketchy. And like all sales, this is a clear out of old stock.
