Amazon Prime Day Apple deals proved hugely popular over Prime Day on Monday and Tuesday. And while the biggest deals have gone, there's still a trickle of savings to be had if you're quick. 

Prime Day ended on Tuesday night (it's actually a two-day event, despite the name), but there are a few savings still available on AirPods, iPads, Apple Watch 6, MacBook Pros and iPhone 12s.

We're also still keeping an eye on decent offers that pop up from other retailers, with Best Buy, Walmart in the US, and Currys in the UK offering up a fair few Apple bargains. We'll be updating the deals on a rolling basis until they run out. 

If you're looking for deals in general, as well on Apple kit, then see our Prime Day deals hub, which has offers on a range of tech. And if you're not a Prime Day member yet, then sign up for a free trial here.

Amazon Prime Day Apple deals: Apple Watch

The latest Apple Watch models to be released were the Apple Watch 6 and the Apple Watch SE in 2020. While we were expecting significant deals on older Apple Watches, which remain very desirable even if they're not the latest model, we're also seeing some good prices on the Apple Watch 6.

Do I need to be a Prime member to take advantage of Prime Day?

If you want to take advantage of Apple Prime Day deals that come direct from Amazon (and most of them will), you'll need to be an Amazon Prime member. Luckily you can sign up for a no-strings-attached 30-day free trial to see if it's your thing. You can even cancel it as soon as Prime Day is done if you like, with absolutely no penalties. 

Are Apple products on sale during Prime Day?

While there aren't huge discounts across all Apple products, there are certainly deals to be had on Apple products over Amazon's Prime Day event. 

We've already seen up to £100 off certain iPads and off the iPhone 12 and the Apple Watch 6 in the UK. In Amazon Prime Day in October last year, we saw iPads on sale for 30% to 38% off, including discounts on the latest iPads at the time. Meanwhile, Apple Watches also had up to 35% off, while MacBook Airs were up to 30% off.

Generally speaking, for bigger bargains, you'll want to look at older Apple stock. We predict decent offers on the 2020 range of iPads and modest-but-notable discounts for the new iPad Pro (M1) released last month.

And don't forget that other retailers also offer deals around the Prime Day event, so you might be able to grab a bargain on Apple products on Prime Day without going anywhere near Amazon's site (though if you sign up to a free Amazon Prime trial now, you can take advantage of Prime Day Apple deals and then cancel, no strings attached).
