Labor Day sales keep rolling in as each passing day inches closer to the holiday weekend. It's officially time to check off your shopping wishlist — from mattress upgrades to shiny new Apple gadgets. That's right, while Apple doesn't offer their own Labor Day sale, sites like Amazon and Walmart have already marked down some of Apple's latest.
Perhaps the most exciting Apple Labor Day deal so far is on the MacBook Air, which has hit its lowest price ever at $750. Notably, MacBooks tends to run upward of $1,000. We also found Apple AirPods (2nd Generation) for $just 99, making the headphones Apple's most affordable pair and matching their Amazon Prime Day price.
It's worth cashing in on the discounts now since interest peaks over the holiday weekend — many Apple devices sold out early for Memorial Day and Prime Day. Plus, we're already seeing comparable prices, so rest assured that you're still getting a good bargain. Whether you upgrade to a pair of AirPods Max or opt for an iPad that's great for travel, read on for the best Apple Labor Day sales of 2023.
The Best Apple Labor Day Deals of 2023
AirPods Pro (2nd Generation)
AirPods (2nd Generation)
Watch Series 8 (GPS, 41mm)
2020 MacBook Air (256GB)
iPad Air (5th Generation) (64GB, WiFi+Cellular)
16-inch 2021 MacBook Pro (1TB)
These are Apple's most affordable earbuds, ringing in at just under $100. And according to our tech experts in the Good Housekeeping Institute, the AirPods (2nd Generation) are the best value AirPods you can pick up. They might not be the most up-to-date model, but they're built with the same H1 chip as the latest AirPods, so you're still getting a high-quality audio experience. “They are great quality earbuds and are pretty affordable compared to other brands...I have had the same pair for multiple years, and they have stayed in great condition!” says senior product analyst Emma Seymour. The battery life should last up to 24 hours when you pair the buds with the charging case.
Named our best smartwatch for women, the Apple Watch Series 8 features major upgrades from the Series 7. The up to 18-hour battery life lived up to its claim in our testing, and our pros were impressed with the tech specs the watch offered. "The Series 8 features a sensor that tracks your temperature while you sleep and enables ovulation estimates, a handy tool for those who are hoping to grow their family... Advanced sensor technology allows the watch to measure blood oxygen levels, and it can also take an ECG reading in 30 seconds, providing valuable insights into your overall heart health," said Rachel Rothman, the chief technologist and executive technical director of the GH Institute.
Already our choice for the best value MacBook, this model just hit its lowest price ever. The laptop features an up to 18-hour battery life and Apple's M1 chip. Its technology might be considered "old" for the Apple world (only three years), but it's still packed with tech specs that make it a powerful laptop that's well worth the money. We found it ideal for everyday users thanks to its accessibility features for vision, mobility, and hearing. It's fast, efficient, and lightweight, doubling as a great choice for commuters and frequent travelers.
Great for commuting, the iPad Air (5th Gen) weighs just one pound. Streaming your favorite movies and TV shows on the 10.9-inch Retina display beats your small phone screen any day, and Apple's M1 chip helps to deliver a fast and efficient performance. The tablet is only a quarter of an inch thick, so it also doesn't take up much space in your tote or backpack. Plus, the on-sale model can connect to your cellular data plan for Internet access, even when off of WiFi.
As the steepest price drop we're seeing on any MacBook right now, the 2021 MacBook Pro is a full $600 off weeks before Labor Day. The laptop offers a full terabyte of storage that can handle large files stored on your computer. Its 16-inch Liquid Retina XDR display will give you plenty of screen space for detailed work. This particular MacBook has an up to 21-hour battery life, meaning you could get a full day's work in on a single charge. This deal sold out during Prime Day, so it's smart to cash in early.
AirPods Max are Apple's answer to on-ear headphones. They offer superior sound quality as well as Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency Modes, plus an up to 20 hour battery life. Considering the price was one of our few caveats, this sale makes it all the more enticing.
When is Labor Day 2023?
Labor Day lands on Monday, September 4, 2023. It typically falls on the first Monday of September every year.
Does Apple have a Labor Day sale?
Apple rarely — if ever — throws any sort of sale. A great time to shop for Apple gadgets at a reduced price is during the Amazon Labor Day sale and the Walmart Labor Day sale. Each retailer tends to keep a high stock of devices and mark them down during holiday weekends like Memorial Day. Despite the large stock, we've noticed that the best deals still tend to sell out quickly since any sort of Apple discount is coveted.
