The best Apple Memorial Day deals are already starting to trickle in. The Memorial Day Sale may officially start tomorrow, but as usual, we are seeing deals in the preceding days. We're tracking all the best Apple Memorial Day deals here, from iPads and MacBooks to Apple Watches. 

Apple has never offered Memorial Day discounts itself, but retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy and B&H Photo do. Prices can and do change rapidly as stock fluctuates, and sometimes you can grab a surprisingly hefty bargain on a product simply by opting for a different colour, so it pays to look around.

Below we've highlighted some quick links to take you to the best online retailers that will be offering Apple Memorial Day deals – many of which have some early offers live right now. Then we highlight the absolute best deals for all the Apple products below that. Don't see what you want? Come back soon, because we'll be updating this page. Also see our round-up of the best Apple deals in general.

The best Apple Memorial Day deals


Apple iPad Pro 11 (M2, 4th Generation): $899

Apple iPad Pro 11 (M2, 4th Generation): $899 $849 at Amazon
Save $100:
Equalling the lowest price we've seen this sell for, you can get a hefty chunk off the latest iPad. With several colours included in the offer, we'd recommend snapping this up.

iPad (10.2, 2021): $479

iPad (10.2, 2021): $479 $399 at Amazon
Save $80: 
This 10.2-inch 2021 iPad currently has a tasty $80 knocked off the Wi-Fi 256GB version – a pretty good deal on a new model. Some of us here at CB prefer this model to the most recent 10th Gen, so well worth a look.

iPad (10.9, 2022): $449

iPad (10.9, 2022): $449 $399 at Amazon
Save $50: 
Amazon also has $50 off the beefed-up 2022 iPad 10.9. This was a tablet that confused us on its release, sitting between the cheaper 9th-gen iPad and the iPad Air, but when we reviewed it, it all made sense. There's $50 of both the 64GB and 256GB configurations.

Apple iPad Pro 11 (M2, 4th Generation): $899

Apple iPad Pro 11 (M2, 4th Generation): $899 $849 at Amazon
Save $50:
If you want the more powerful iPad Pro, there are no massive savings about as yet, but you can at least save $50. That's only 5% off the price of this 256GB SSD configuration, but it's something.


MacBook Pro 14 (M2 Pro, 2023) $1,999

MacBook Pro 14 (M2 Pro, 2023) $1,999 $1,749 at Amazon
Save $250:
The 2023 MacBook Pros are Apple's most powerful laptops yet, packing its M2 Pro or M2 Max chips. The 14-inch laptop is our choice to balance power and portability, and this configuration boasts 16GB RAM and a 512GB SSD. It's a great choice for professional content creators that need a laptop that can handle video editing or 3D work without struggling.

MacBook Air (M1, 2020):  $999

MacBook Air (M1, 2020): $999 $799.99 at Amazon
Save $200:
The 2020 M1-chipped 13-inch MacBook Air remains one of my favourite laptops of all time. It's the perfect balance of power, portability and price, and the 256GB model has $200 off right now. Even though it was released in 2020, this is still an impressive laptop for most users. 

MacBook Air (M2, 2022):  $1,499

MacBook Air (M2, 2022): $1,499 $1,349 at Amazon
Save $150:
If you want a little more oomph, Amazon also has $150 off last year's M2 MacBook Air. It's still a leap in price from the model above, but you get a 512GB SSD with this configuration.

Mac mini (M2, 2023) $599

Mac mini (M2, 2023) $599 $499 at B&H Photo
Save $100:
For the price, this is one of the best computers out there. You're getting the Apple M2 chip with 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. This may not be for pro video editors – you'll want 16G RAM for that – but if you want a powerful PC that can handle pretty much anything else, this is a great option. 


AirPods Pro (2 Gen):  $249

AirPods Pro (2 Gen): $249 $199 at Amazon
Save $50:
 Apple's top-of-the-range noise-cancelling earbuds offer awesome sound quality. Now knocked down by $50 dollars, these AirPods are definitely worth looking into. I had the fist Gen and loved them – these are better!

Apple Watch

Apple Watch Series 7: $399

Apple Watch Series 7: $399 $249 at Amazon
Save $150:
 This is a fantastic deal on what is really the same as the 8, but without a few new features. And it's a record low price, beating the last best price on the 7 by $90!  Well worth looking into, and we don't think it'll be beat on official Memorial Day. 


iPhone 13 Pro Max: $1099.99

iPhone 13 Pro Max: $1099.99 $299.99 at Verizon
Save $800:
Got an old iPhone? Verizon has an incredible offer for Memorial Day, allowing customers to trade in old phones for discounts on newer ones. You might even be able to grab one for free!

iPhone SE: $429.99

iPhone SE: $429.99 $209.99 at Best Buy
Another fantastic trade-in deal, Best Buy and T-Mobile are offering the slim and portable iPhone SE for less than half price when an old model is traded in. This is the 3rd gen model, with expanded battery life. 

iPhone 12 mini: $629.99

iPhone 12 mini: $629.99 $314.99 at AT&T
Buy an iPhone 12 mini on an instalment plan at AT&T and you can get up to 50% off the total cost of the phone, with monthly payments as low as $8.75. There's no trade-in required for this one. 

When is the Apple Memorial Day Sale 2023?

Memorial Day 2023 falls on Monday 29 May, and the biggest Apple Memorial Day sale discounts are likely to be found on that Monday itself and the weekend immediately before it. But, since Memorial Day is the first major retail event of the year, retailers are often keen to make the most of it, which means they tend to try to get in early and beat each other to the rush.

In previous years we've seen good Apple Memorial Day deals appearing in the week before Memorial Day itself, and even earlier in May – as you can see from the Apple Memorial Day deals above. So keep coming back to this page to check for updated offers as they appear.

Apple Memorial Day Sale 2023: What to expect

Based on our experience of many prior years of Apple Memorial Day sales, we can predict that we'll see good savings on iPad, Apple Watch, AirPods and more. In 2021, the Apple Memorial Day sale saw savings of $50 on the Apple Air Pods Pro, $70 off the Apple Watch Series 6 and $50 to $100 off certain iPads and MacBooks. 

We expect to see similar savings this year, with larger savings possible on older Apple products, and in fact, with two weeks still to go, we're already seeing some deals beating last years Apple Memorial Day sale deals, including $180 off the Apple Watch 7.

Is Apple going to have a Memorial Day?

In short, no, Apple will not have an Apple Memorial Day. In fact, Apple doesn't really do sales at all. Ever. Even after Christmas. The best we get from the Cupertino giant is voucher offers during Black Friday, when it tends to offer vouchers towards future purchases. That's great if you're a big Apple fan and you're likely to buy more gear from the company (we know we certainly are), but it's not the same as a straight-up cash discount on an item you want to buy now. This means that to find the best Apple Memorial Day sale deals, you need to look at other retailers. Amazon and B&H Photo are usually the best bets, followed by Target, Adorama, Best Buy and Walmart.
