It's official: Amazon Prime Day, the site's biggest sale of the year, is returning on July 12 and July 13, 2022 according to an Amazon press release. That's great news for the Apple fans out there, because Prime Day is one of the best times of the year to save on Apple products.

Last year's Amazon Prime Day deals included major markdowns on Apple's most popular devices—everything from covetable AirPods and Apple Watches to big-ticket items like MacBooks, iMacs and iPads. And while the official Prime Day 2022 deals are still under wraps, there is still reason to be excited: Amazon's early Prime Day deals on Apple products are some of the best deals we've ever seen. Right now, the 21.5-inch iMac desktop is a whopping $300 off and AirPods Pro are the same price they were during Prime Day last year (a feat considering inflation). If these items are on your list, we strongly recommend snagging these deals now before they inevitably sell out, versus waiting until next week.

The Best Prime Day Apple Deals

What are the best Prime Day deals 2022?

Last Amazon Prime Day, there were over two million deals across every category, including home, tech, fashion, appliances, furniture, beauty and travel. The best deals tend to be in tech and appliances, says Jessica Teich, deputy editor at the Good Housekeeping Institute.

Is Prime Day a good time to buy Apple products?

Yes! In fact, “Prime Day is one of the best times to buy Apple products, including AirPods, Apple Watches and even MacBooks and iPads," says Teich. "In 2021, we saw AirPods go up to 20% off, which is one of the steepest sales on AirPods we’ve seen. Apple Watches were also up to $80 off," she said. This year, AirPods savings have already eclipsed those of Prime Day 2021, so Prime Day 2022 is definitely going to be an opportune time to stock up on all things Apple. (Early holiday shopping, anyone?)

Prime Day is only 48 hours and only happens once per year, so be sure to mark your calendar for July 12 and 13! However, there are also Prime Day pre-sales happening this week and we expect to see post-Prime Day sales happening next week, so there are multiple opportunities to save.

Prime Day savings are only available for Amazon Prime subscribers. An Amazon Prime membership costs $14.99 per month or $139 per year, but be aware the retailer offers discounts for students, seniors and more, plus a free a 30-day trial for first-time subscribers.
