With the official arrival of the Presidents' Day Sale 2023, we're seeing some great Apple deals popping up. If you're familiar with other big retail events like Black Friday and the Amazon Prime sales, you'll already know that we see some of the best price drops from Apple during these times so we're expecting to see some fantastic savings on various products today.

We here at Creative Bloq are massive Apple fans so we want to ensure we're sharing the best deals on the market with you. As such, that means we're making sure retailers haven't marked up their prices to sell a fake deal during this Presidents' Day Apple sale. We're also aware when the tech giant drops the ball with a new iteration of a product. So we've been careful in what we've searched for and presented you below. We've no interest in giving you a deal on an out-dated iPad or lack-lustre MacBook, so we'll even make a note if there were general moans from reviewers on its release (2022 iPad, we're looking at you!)

iPad Pro 12.9 (M2, 2022): <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=8429&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.com%2Fdp%2FB0BJLF2BRM%3Ftag%3Dhawk-future-20%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-20" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">$1,099 $1,049 at Amazon
Save $50: This is the latest, largest, 6th Gen iPad Pro, and comes with 128GB and a whopping 12.0-inch display. We gave it a solid four and a half stars out of five in our hands-on review, and love its power (but note that it's totally overkill for many non-pro users).

iPad (10.2-inch, 2021): <a href="https://goto.walmart.com/c/1943169/565706/9383?subId1=hawk-custom-tracking&sharedId=hawk&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.walmart.com%2Fip%2F2021-Apple-10-2-inch-iPad-Wi-Fi-64GB-Space-Gray-9th-Generation%2F674982024" data-link-merchant="walmart.com"" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">$329 $269 at Walmart
Save $60: With the 2022 iPad released, the next in line is having some decent discounts on it. This is the 10-inch, 64G, 9th Gen model, and when we <a href="https://www.creativebloq.com/reviews/ipad-10.2-inch-9th-gen" data-link-merchant="creativebloq.com"" data-link-merchant="walmart.com"">reviewed it, we loved that it's the best budget tablet out there (but we would have also loved Apple Pencil 2 compatibility). For context, a renewed version is going for <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=8429&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.com%2FApple-iPad-10-2-Inch-Wi-Fi-Cellular%2Fdp%2FB084BYDBNK%2Fref%3Dsr_1_3%3Ftag%3Dhawk-future-20%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-20" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" data-link-merchant="creativebloq.com"" data-link-merchant="walmart.com"" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">$224 over at Amazon.

Save $50: If you want the latest, suped-up iPad, with a modest 64GB, this is the best deal out there. Now, the newest iPad has garnered some crits – does it really need to be able to tackle 4K video editing?! But if you want a tab better than the 9th Gen iPad, but less than the latest iPad Air, this is for you.

MacBook Air (M1, 2020): <a href="https://shop-links.co/link?skuId=5721600&publisher_slug=future&exclusive=1&u1=hawk-custom-tracking&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bestbuy.com%2Fsite%2Fmacbook-air-13-3-laptop-apple-m1-chip-8gb-memory-256gb-ssd-space-gray%2F5721600.p%3FskuId%3D5721600&article_name=hawk-article-name&article_url=hawk-article-url" data-link-merchant="bestbuy.com"" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">$999 $799 at Best Buy
Save $200: For my money, this is the best 13-inch laptop out there. I write, stream, do a little low-end photo and video editing with it every day, and every day it's a joy to use. The M1 chip was a game changer, and that's why we gave this model a full five star review back in 2020.

MacBook Pro (M1, 2020): <a href="https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1606264-REG/apple_13_3_macbook_pro_with.html?BI=20811&KBID=16572&SID=hawk-custom-tracking" data-link-merchant="bhphotovideo.com"" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">$2,148 $1,648 at B&H Photo
Save $500: It's one of the best MacBook Pros to be released in recent years, and currently has $500 off. Don't get us wrong, it's still a considerable sum, but if you've been looking for an elite 13.3-inch laptop, this is a great deal.

Save $49: Want the portable 13-inch screen, but more power than the Air? This M2-chipped 2022 MacBook Air has 8GB RAM and 512G storage and comes with AppleCare+. When we reviewed this model, we loved that it was aimed at creative pros that would have previously gone for the 14-inch Pro. This is a decent alternative.

AirPods Pro 2 (2022):  <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=8429&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.com%2Fdp%2FB0BDHWDR12%3Ftag%3Dhawk-future-20%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-20" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">$249.99 $199.99 at Amazon

 Want a jump up in ANC and sound quality from the above? I have a pair of these cans and they are by far the best headphones I've ever used (including the Sony XM4s!) Now, we've seen these go down as far as $429, so this isn't the best deal ever, but it's still worth a look. Also deals over at <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=8429&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.com%2Fdp%2FB08PZHYWJS%2Fref%3Dfs_a_mdt2_us3%3Ftag%3Dhawk-future-20%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-20" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" data-link-merchant="bestbuy.com"" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Amazon too.

Save $10:
B&H Photo has a modest discount on these older 2019, 2nd Generation AirPods with charging case. If you don't want the latest tech but just want a good pair of earbuds for a little less, this is a nice deal (though we much stress, these are far from our favourite earbuds).

AT&T is offering a great Presidents' Day Apple deal right now – if you want two Apple Watch 8s (one for a friend?!) If you get two, they will slice $330 off the final price. This actually works on the 8, the SE and the Ultra!

Save £70: This is one of the lowest prices we've seen on the 2021 Apple Watch Series 7. It's an excellent smart watch with most of the features of the newer model above. The catch is that this price is only on the red colour. There are smaller savings on other colours though.

Save $40: One of the best Apple deals so far this Presidents' Day, we usually only see max of $10 off the 2nd Gen Apple Pencil, so to have a huge $40 continues to be our record low. An unmissable deal that won't last long.

Apple's 2020 Mac mini with its own M1 chip is a great value compact computer that looks sleek and offers performance to match. This is a decent saving on the 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD configuration, but the 512GB model is unfortunately out of stock at the moment.
