Amazon Prime Early Access: The Best Apple Deals

Amazon is hosting another Prime Day event this year, called the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale and offering shoppers the first chance to save on holiday shopping from a major retailer. Similar to the first Prime Day, it will last for two days and you'll find a large selection of deals and offers across Amazon's storefront, covering savings on tech, clothing, video games, groceries, and much, much more.

For our coverage, we're focusing entirely on Apple and Apple-related discounts that can be purchased during this 48-hour event on Amazon. As of today, this includes deals on AirPods, Apple Watch, iPad, iPad Air, and MacBook Pro.

As is typical for Prime Day deals, these markdowns are very time sensitive, so sales listed below may disappear fast, and new ones may appear even faster. With this in mind, we'll keep this article updated throughout the event, and keep an eye on the MacRumors front page as we'll be posting particularly great deals in separate articles this week.

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, Amazon Prime Early Access requires you to have an Amazon Prime membership to take advantage of the discounts. Amazon Prime offers a one month free trial, and otherwise costs $14.99 per month or $139.00 per year.

AirPods

Over the past few years, one of the most popular discounts around the holidays is on Apple's AirPods. Amazon is officially kicking off this trend in 2022 with solid markdowns on AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro 2.

Prices start at $89.99 for the AirPods 2 ($39 off), then increase to $223.24 for the AirPods Pro 2 ($25.86 off). [Update: The $223.24 AirPods Pro 2 price is an additional drop beyond the previous deal from earlier today.]

These are some of the lowest prices of the year, and in the case of the AirPods Pro 2 this is now the lowest price we've ever tracked. Every deal has been applied automatically so you won't need any coupon.


Apple TV 4K

During the summertime Prime Day, Amazon introduced a massive discount on the Apple TV 4K, and now this device is available for $109.99, down from $179.00. This model actually hit an all-time low price of $104.49 earlier today but remains an excellent price. The 64GB model is also available at $128.99 after hitting $123.49, but it remains a very substantial deal compared to the regular price of $199.00 for this model.

[Update: Prices have fluctuated multiple times today, but have remained excellent discounts compared to normal pricing.]

The M1 MBA is still one of the best bang for the buck Macs ever especially at $799. I just wish there was a 16GB RAM version that wasn’t Build To Order.

Amazon's garage sale. If anyone is interested, Walmart is doing their version of Prime Day. They are selling the current ATV HD for $79.
