The best Apple Memorial Day deals are now in full swing, and we're tracking all the best Apple deals, from iPads and MacBooks to Apple Watches and Apple Pencils. 

Though Apple has never offered Memorial Day discounts, retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy and B&H Photo do. Prices often 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 – and have experts like us with their eyes on the prize for you.

Below we've highlighted some quick links to take you to the best online retailers that are offering Apple Memorial Day deals. Then we're highlight the absolute best deals for all the Apple products below that. Don't see what you want? Come back soon, because we're updating this page regularly. Also see our round-up of the best Apple deals in general.

Good morning, deal hunters! Memorial Day isn't until tomorrow, but the Apple deals have begun, and we'll be reporting on all the best right here.

If you've been waiting for the right moment to splash out on one of Apple's newest and most powerful laptops, this could be that moment. Amazon has $250 off the M2 Pro-powered MacBook Pro 14, now $1,999 $1,749. This is the cheapest price we've seen for the 10‑core CPU, 16‑core GPU, 16GB RAM, 512GB configuration since its release in January. There's also $250 off the 16in version of the laptop, now  $2,499 $2,249

Well that didn't last long! Apple Memorial Day deals on MacBook Pros are flying already. The $250 saving on the 512GB MacBook Pro M2 Pro that we just highlighted has already sold out in Amazon, and it's back up to $1,934, almost full price. But the good news is that if you're after more storage space, which you might well be if you're doing the kind of work that requires a MacBook Pro, there's still $250 off the 1TB configuration: MacBook Pro M2 Pro 1TB now $2,499 $2,249 at Amazon.

For anyone looking for a new tablet, there are already some decent Apple Memorial Day deals on the standard iPads, both the 9th and 10th gen.

Amazon has $50 off the beefed-up 2022 iPad 10.9, reduced from $449 to $399. 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, suddenly it all made sense, and this is the tablet we'd recommend today for anyone that doesn't require a more powerful device for, say, video work.

But if you're looking for the cheapest iPad you can get, Amazon also has $40 off the 2021 iPad 10.2, now $329 $269.99.

If you want to tell the time and want to do it in style, may we suggest this Nike Apple Watch 7, which is currently reduced by $70 at Best Buy. The same discount is available on both the 41m (now $329.99) and 45mm (now $359.99) versions and in both the Starlight and Midnight colours. This is a great option if you prefer a sportier look.

I'm currently writing this article on an M1 MacBook Air, and it's one of the best laptops I've ever used. If you prefer the more discreet sized 13-inch laptops, that pack a powerful punch when it comes to creative work, the Air M1 is such a good option, especially now that you can pick one up for $799 down from the original $999. It's a great deal, and you won't be disappointed by this five star laptop.

As creatives, we all know how brilliant the Apple Pencil is for drawing, sketching, note-taking and beyond (I mean, how brilliant is the hover functionality on the 2nd gen pencil?). So far this pre-Memorial Day fiesta hasn't brought any record-low prices on either iteration of the Pencil, but the Apple Pencil 1 has got close-ish with this Amazon deal, which brings it from $99 just $89 ($10 away from the lowest price I've seen). 

And the Apple Pencil 2 does have a fairly decent amount knocked off, though it's nowhere near its lowest price ever – it's currently listed on Amazon for $114.99, reduced from its full price of $129 (this is the lowest price it's around for right now). Given the cheapest I've seen it sold for is $85 (though this was just once), it may not be time to pull the trigger on the purchase quite yet – but if this remains the best deal around tomorrow and you really want one, you'll still be saving a bit. 

Not sure which Apple Pencil you actually need? See our Apple Pencil 1 vs Apple Pencil 2 comparison guide.

Okay, pro level users need to sit up and pay attention to this one. The absolute beast of a laptop, the MacBook Pro M1 Max currently has some astounding discounts at B&H Photo,, which could save you up to $1,450. 

Not sure what I'm on about? Well, it's the late 2021 model. Although it doesn't have the sexiness of the M2 label, the M1 Max is more powerful than the basic M2 chip – so if you're looking for raw power at a bargain price then this could be the model for you. 

There are deals on the 16.2-inch screen and the 14.2-inch, and with different memory/RAM configurations. But as an example, you can currently snaffle the MacBook Pro M1 Max (10-Core chip), with 64GB of RAM and 4TB SSD, and that glorious 16.2-inch 3456x2234 Liquid Retina XDR Screen reduced from a whopping $4,899 to just $3,499. But there are options well under $3,000 too.

Other configurations are available with similar amounts off, explore your options here. I know I'm spouting some big old numbers at you, but if you're in the market for a powerhouse of a machine, this is an excellent deal.

AirPods Pro 2 are arguably some of the best earbuds you can buy. And they're currently matching the lowest price I've seen over at Amazon – reduced by $50 to just $199. Sure, they've been at this price before and maybe they will be again. But they've never gone lower than this. Perhaps they will tomorrow when the main event kicks off, but one can never be sure. So if you want some, this is a very good time to buy. Or take the risk and hold out, depending on how steady your nerves are.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro M2 was released in 2022 and it offers something quite unique, with a whole lot of power in a super-portable frame. And it's currently equalling its lowest-ever price of $1,099 at Amazon, reduced from $1,299

When we reviewed this model we loved its long battery life, superb power and the fact its almost silent when in use. Sure, it doesn't have a lot of ports (just two Thunderbolts) but you can always add one of the our picks for the best dock for MacBook Pro if you need to. Check out our full MacBook Pro 13-inch (M2, 2022) review if you want to know more about this machine.

There's a nice offer on the Apple Magic Trackpad. It's not quite at its lowest price, but it's on the way there. Get one knocked down from the RRP of $129 to $112.71 at Amazon, about $9 more than the lowest price I've seen it listed for. Note: It's only the white model on sale, the black is still full price. So if you're over the standard mouse and want something with more gesture-support, this is a great alternative.

So, it's finally Memorial Day. It may well be the middle of the night but rest assured, we're here (with a giant cup of coffee) souring the internet to sniff out the offers on Apple products you need to know about. 

So far, not a huge amount seems to have changed since yesterday. There are some pretty decent discounts around (see the quick links above for a full rundown) – but one we haven't mentioned explicitly yet is this quite delightful 13 per cent off a MacBook Pro M2 (14-inch 2023), with 512GB SSD, which is reduced from £1,999 to $1,749 at Amazon. (Note: B&H Photo also have the same deal running and there are different specs available at a discount, which we have explained already.) 

It hasn't been on sale for lower than this that I've seen, though Amazon has had it on for this price for a few days now. 

When we reviewed this model, we dubbed it the King of laptops, and for a reason. We loved the beautiful Liquid Retina XDR Display, brilliant connectivity and the fact it's highly portable.

If you're an iMac lover, you'll be interested to know that the 2021 iMac is currently matching its lowest ever price ever for the blue version with 256GB SSD and that game-changing M1 chip – bringing it from $1,299 to $1,099 and saving you $200 at Amazon. This deal has come up before but not since February, and it has never been lower than this.

Good morning to anyone just joining us on Memorial Day proper. We've been up through the night, and we'll continue here throughout the day reporting on the best Apple Memorial Day deals that we find.

First up, a little recap on what we're seeing on iPads. There are now massive, unprecedented Memorial Day iPad deals around, and we don't expect there will be, but the good news is that there are plenty of deals that we've seen crop up in the past, so there's at least no reason to pay full price for any model of iPad. 

The biggest saving is on last year's M1 iPad Air – from $599 $499 at Amazon (pictured above). This Air was more Pro-like than ever and should suit anyone who wants a tablet for light work but doesn't need the massive power of the Pros.

Last year's M2-powered pros have only small discounts on them: $50 off the iPad Pro 12.9 128GB and $50 off the iPad Pro 11 256GB.

But if you just want a device for everyday browsing and entertainment, you don't need the power of an iPad Pro or Air. The standard iPad is reduced from $329 to $269.99, a brilliant price for an Apple tablet. 

Want slightly more power, a brighter display and USB-C? There's also $50 off the slightly larger 2022 iPad 10.9 – now from $449 $399 at Amazon. The $50 discount also applies to the 256GB configuration. This is the iPad that we recommend for most people (see our full iPad 2022 review to see why).

Moving onto MacBooks, there are a massive amount of discounts about, including the lowest prices we've seen yet on this year's M2 Pro and Pro Max MacBooks – Apple's latest and greatest.

If you want the larger screen, there's an Apple Memorial Day deal on Amazon that drops $250 off the price of the 16in MacBook Pro M2 Pro: $2,499 $2,249 – a saving of 10%. And the same discount applies to Apple's most powerful laptop, the MacBook Pro 16 Pro Max, from $3,499 $3,249.

Need a more portable device? There's also $250 off the MacBook Pro 14 M2 Pro 1TB $2,499 $2,249.

Feel like splashing out on a very expensive smartwatch? The rugged Apple Watch Ultra is the best we've ever had the pleasure of reviewing, and right now there's $50 at Amazon, reducing the price to $749.

This isn't the cheapest price we've ever seen – it was reduced by $60 to $739 during Black Friday last year. But this is the cheapest price we've had in the past month, and it hasn't fallen any lower than this in 2023.

The Apple Pencil is an essential tool for anyone creating art on the iPad, and the 2nd generation Apple Pencil works with all the newest iPads. This Memorial Day it's down to $114. This isn't the lowest we've ever seen it, that was one glorious day when it went down to $89. But that was back around Christmas 2022, so we reckon this 12% saving is worth snapping up. If you're wanting to wait for more discounts, then the next big retail event will be Prime Day, which is likely to be sometime in the summer.

There are a fair few deals knocking around on Apple kit this Memorial Day and Amazon has knocked £119 off the Magic Keyboard with Touch ID. It now costs $130.99 down from $149. It connects to your Apple machine via Bluetooth and this one is a US English keyboard.

If you're after an iPad this Memorial Day, then there's a decent offer on the iPad Air (M1, 2022) at Amazon. It's down to $499. Have we seen it at this price before? Yes. Do we rate it as a fantastic tablet? Yes - read our full iPad Air 2022 review for more details. Might it drop down to this price again? Probably yes. But why not seize the day?

Best dock for MacBook: Kensington SD5700T

With not much changing on the actual Apple deals front, we've been widening our net to catch the deals on supporting tech. And thank goodness we did as we found out that our number one pick on our best dock of MacBook Pro list is currently at a very decent price indeed, a record-low, in fact. You can grab the Kensington SD5700T Thunderbolt 4 Docking Station reduced from $289.99 to just $221.15 at Amazon

That's 24 per cent off a brilliant dock that has four Thunderbolt 4 ports, four fast USB-A ports (including one for charging), an SD card reading slot, a Gigabit Ethernet port and an audio jack. It supports single 8K or dual 4K @ 60 Hz, single 4k @ 120Hz, or dual 1080P @120Hz Hz video output, and will charge your laptop with 180 watt power. We're actually excited by this deal, which seems unsexy but is extremely useful.

If you've got a big budget for a top-level display, Apple's 32-inch Pro Display is currently at an all-time low, with 14 per cent off – sending it down to $5,149.99 from $5,999 at Amazon. Previously, the lowest it's been listed is $5,299 so it's a full $150 less than we've spotted it at before. 

For that price you get an XDR with retina 6K display with nano-texture glass, and a peak brightness of 1600 nits. It may not be the newest model (Apple has a new Studio display), but it's still excellent and a very good deal at this price. So if you've got the cash to burn, burn it here.

Memorial Day may have wound down now but the deals we've listed above are still very much live. Though we haven't seen the price cuts we hoped for, and some are returning to full price, there are still some decent deals to be taken advantage of – especially if you were planning on buying anyway. 

We'll keep our eyes open throughout the next few hours in case anything surprising pops up. For our money, the best prices are currently on the MacBook Pro 2021 M1 Max, at B&H Photo (which have up to $1,450 off!), so if you're looking for raw power at a good price and don't mind about not having the latest model, this is the place to go.
